I’ve been working in and out of the digital signage business for quite a while, with lots of different customers…
One of the best innovations I’ve seen for signage in some time is Windows Embedded Standard 7. take all the power of Windows 7 from a CPU, graphics and hardware support perspective, and give it the ability to be completely customized – remove non-essential Windows Features, block pop-up messages, use your custom signage application as the shell, etc. Overall, a great solution for the Signage industry as a whole.
To help bootstrap development in the signage space Intel, along with WinMate, and Help from us, have recently released the Digital Signage Evaluation Kit (DSEK-10) Available here from WinMate. This device is pretty cool. it’s got all the toys you need to make a great DS demo solution (you could actually take it to production too! ) About a billion connectors for any type of display you want, audio, Wifi, Bluetooth, etc.
I get asked from time to time about where folks can go to find apps for their WES7 based designs. Let’s say you want to include Antivirus, or Adobe Reader in your image – but aren’t sure that they’re set up to work correctly! well, posted here on the Microsoft News Center, is an article talking about our new Compatible Applications Website. This gives developers a look at apps we’ve tested as functional with WES7. this will help you in the planning (as well as development) process, by saving a TON of time.
Nice Job, Embedded Team!
