Digital Signage

Digital Signage systems usually contain a content delivery system (a server) and a field player and display system. On the server side, because of the industrial nature of the application, the system would benefit from the reliability and performance of a Mainstream Enterprise drive, or possibly an AV class drive it the data was all AV, as digital signage systems often are. On the player side, the system is usually delivering AV, so an AV class drive would be the drive designed for the job. There are 2.5” AV drives designed specifically for AV playback and record for these systems.

 

Unique Digital Signage challenges for drives:

  • Extra small chassis sizes
  • 24/7 operation
  • Constant sequential access
  • On video servers, enterprise reliability expected

Enabling features of AV drives:

  • 24/7 rated drive platform
  • Custom, adaptive tuning
  • Custom, factory screening
  • Low spin rate, low power use
  • Enhanced spindle motor

Enabling features of Mainstream Enterprise drives:

  • 24/7 rated drive platform
  • Custom, adaptive tuning
  • Custom, factory screening
  • Enhanced recording platform
  • RV feed forward sensors
  • Fixed shaft motor

 

System builders, integrators and OEM’s in this space need drives that perform very repetitive tasks for years of 24/7 operation.
