Modules for intelligent ultra-high-resolution displays


IoT (Internet of Things) technology is rapidly permeating all industries, opening entirely new ways of interacting with customers. This is especially true for digital signage solutions, which are designed to improve the customer experience and customer loyalty.

Whether in department stores or shopping malls, in restaurants or entertainment venues, in airports and railway stations, in public places, or at corporate locations, digital signage solutions help provide guidance, present news, promote offers, announce events, and distribute important information.

Technology drives the transformation

But what technology is driving the transformation of traditional signage to digital signage, bridging the gap between the digital and physical world?

  • Large-format displays are constantly becoming cheaper and allow applications that were previously beyond reach
  • Interactive touchscreen displays with ultra-high resolution make it easier for users to engage more deeply with information
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) helps to analyze user interactions, meaning engagement metrics provide valuable insights for content optimization
  • With fast and reliable network connections such as 5G, high-quality multimedia campaigns including images, videos, animations, live feeds, social media integration, and even user-generated content, can be dynamically tailored and delivered in real time
  • Digital signage solutions linked to online stores also offer potential customers the opportunity to easily purchase the advertised products

Always to be considered: cybercrime

Whenever digital solutions are used, cybersecurity must be given the utmost attention. Measures such as data encryption, device authentication and secure network protocols prevent unauthorized access to the digital signage solution and stops manipulated content from being displayed.


boosting Customer experience

To design the right processing module for a digital signage device, typical requirements are:

  • Sufficient processing power to handle the demands of content playback and rendering, manage multiple data streams, and run real-time analytics
  • Support for multiple high bit rate connectivity options such as Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 6, and 5G
  • Support for multiple display outputs to integrate advanced configurations such as video walls or multi-screen setups without the need for additional hardware
  • I/O interfaces to connect with peripherals including USB ports, GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) pins, serial ports, HDMI or DisplayPort for video output, and audio interfaces
  • Graphics capabilities for displaying high-resolution images, videos, animations, and interactive content including hardware acceleration for video decoding and smooth rendering
  • Robust designs and industrial-grade components to withstand conditions in harsh environments, including temperature fluctuations, dust, or vibrations, and to ensure reliable operation
  • Efficient power management capabilities, low power consumption, and potentially support features such as wake-on-LAN or scheduled power management to optimize energy usage of displays running 24/7 
  • Scalable and flexible to accommodate different display sizes, various layouts, including video walls and multi-zone displays, and large-scale deployments
  • Remote management capabilities to update content, monitor the status of displays, and troubleshoot issues, which are particularly important for multiple signage displays spread across different locations

Low power System-on-Modules for high-performance tasks

CHERRY Embedded Solutions’ modules are based on the Qseven form factors and have all the necessary components included on a single board, such as CPU, GPU, NPU, memory, storage, and I/O interfaces. They rely on ARM-based System-on-Chips (SOC) from Rockchip that feature low power consumption even for high-performance tasks such as evaluating large amounts of sensor data.

An EAL6+-certified secure element ensures the necessary security level and asset protection.

Reduced development costs and shortened time to market

The functional scope of a module can be configured for a specific use case to make full use of cost advantages. This includes both the software with the Board Support Package (BSP) and hardware components such as memory and I/O interfaces.

A comprehensive evaluation kit allows software development to begin before the device hardware design is complete, enabling a short time to market. All modules run on Linux, supported by Debian, Yocto and Buildroot.
