The ARK-DS520 is a compact and low-profiledigital signage player powered by an Intel® Atom™ D525 dual-core processor with an integrated NVIDIA GT218 (ION2) graphic module, supports full HD playback up to 1080p. It displays eMenus, videos, images, slides, instant information, etc. according to a scheduled playlist, which it receives from a central server via TCP/IP compliant LAN. ARK-DS520 also has a rich combination of video output interfaces for dual display (2 x VGA, VGA HDMI, HDMI DVI, or VGA DVI) that eliminates display limitations for solution providers and reduces total system cost. It also supports internal 2 x Mini PCle interfaces for add-on functions such as wireless IP connection and TV tuner cards, so that the system can display full HD video andlive TV content at intervals and can update display content online.
