    Shop Smart and Efficiently at Innovation 2013

    Posted By Myriam Semery
    Windows Embedded BG Lead

    The not-to-miss event for technological innovation and design and marketing at the point of sale, Shop Innovation 2013, is taking place in Paris, Porte de Versailles on April 3 and 4. Windows Embedded will be there, as partners’ solutions are showcased onsite—solutions that take customer service to the next level, with interactive displays, heightened connectivity and ever-more personalized shopping experiences.

    Improveeze specializes in gesture and tactile solutions for touchscreens, tablets, interactive terminals and digital signs. The show will be an opportunity for Improveeze to introduce and showcase its latest solution, “Sonar,” which demonstrates the performance and effectiveness of commercial interactive screens in a store. This offering—which runs on Windows Embedded--includes strategic consulting and operational support, as well as supply and installation of “probes” (industry tablets and other types of shopping interactive displays) at the point of sale. The installation of interactive screens in the shop enables Sonar to collect data via the installed system. The main advantage of this offering is that it will allow retailers to test it before buying it. Indeed, a test version of the solution is proposed, for a limited period, which allows the retailer to assess the return on investment that can be generated by the interactive digital signage solutions. It also enables brick-and-mortar retailers to test the concept of shop-in-shop. Improveeze connects stores together, and provide points of sale with all the richness and power of e-commerce, to move stores into the era of cloud computing.

    InStore Solutions designs, manufactures, distributes and integrates customized digital signage and interactive kiosks solutions based on the Windows Embedded Standard 7 and POSReady 7 platforms. At the show, it will showcase its partnership with Compario, a specialist in customer-experience management in the e-commerce area. This partnership will enable companies to offer to their customers hosted management solutions for integrated retail experiences. With this intelligent system, retailers will be able to finalize a sale in-store, leveraging customer preferences and interest gathered from their online shopping experience. This customer data is displayed on a kiosk or a tablet and enables the shop staff to suggest targeted articles based on the customer’s specific shopping habits and preferences.

    Windows Embedded 8 is Intelligent Systems Ready

    Posted By Barb Edson
    General Manager, Marketing and Business Development

    A couple of weeks ago, at the Intelligent Systems Leadership Summit, I had a chance to catch David Wurster’s presentation on new features and functionality in the Windows Embedded 8 platform. As senior product marketing manager for Embedded, David has a great vantage point to see all of the cool things going on with Windows Embedded 8 as the new suite of products are rolled out over the next year. The following is a blog post he put together for me, so we could share those features in this space.

    Over the next year, we're bringing Windows 8 to the embedded market, allowing OEMs, enterprises, developers and other partners to build devices and applications that offer a high-performance, fast, fluid experience without sacrificing any of the security and flexibility that the reimagined Windows delivers:

    • Windows Embedded 8 Standard continues to be our modular, componentized version of Windows 8. We add technologies on top of that to enable industry-specific scenarios. A release preview is available now, with general availability scheduled for March.
    • Windows Embedded 8 Pro is the full version of Windows we'll be bringing through the embedded channel. This will also be available in the March timeframe.
    • Windows Embedded 8 Industry is the new name for our Windows Embedded POSReady product. The reason for the change is that we see the capabilities of this operating system fitting into a much larger number of device categories than just point-of-service. In January, we’ll be offering our first community technology preview of this important release.

    We’ve done a lot of work to make sure Windows Embedded 8 is ready for the world of intelligent systems. In the end, it’s all about being able to deliver the kind of rich, compelling, connected line-of-business experiences that people expect.

    Much of the excitement around the new platform centers on its multi touch and ten-point touch experiences and the capabilities they enable for the device world. Check out the demo video below for a look at how smooth Windows Embedded 8-based applications can be:

    EWF Overlay Limits on Windows Embedded Standard 2009 and 2011

    Introduction

    When using Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) in RAM or RAMREG mode several customers might assume the EWF overlay is limited solely by the availability of physical memory. Consequently, many assume they will be able to achieve an overlay twice as big on a system with 2 GB RAM than on a system with 1 GB RAM. This is not true by any means. This article explains the factors that limit the overlay size and the significant improvements seen on Windows Embedded Standard 2011.

    If you are interested more in the conclusion than the internals, skip the following sections and jump directly to the “Results and Conclusion” section.
