Advansus Launches 7 Scalable Barebone Systems at Embedded Technology

Advansus, a joint-venture company of ASUS and Advantech, is introducing seven new system products, and a series of industrial motherboards at Embedded Technology 2007, November 14-16 in Tokyo, Japan. Simultaneously, Advansus is excited about demonstrating its line of digital signage and surveillance solutions, all in collaboration with three industry-leading companies:

  • Scala, the world’s leading provider of digital signage software
  • GeoVision, the leading DVR manufacturer for the security industry
  • Sampo, Taiwan’s top manufacturer of CCD cameras and home appliances

Digital signage solution
Based on Advansus’s GME965 barebone platform, the Scala system exhibits all the strengths of the Scala InfoChannel application. Using Scala InfoChannel advanced content management and distribution, and its high performance playback technology, it is possible to schedule, deliver and playback several channels of multimedia content to network of one to thousands of players worldwide.

Surveillance solution
Geovision Digital Surveillance system incorporates Advansus’s Q965 ATX motherboard and GeoVision’s GV-1480 16 CH 480 FPS DVR Card. This system can record motion-activated intruder events. All events are stored with a current date and time stamp, and then compressed onto the PC Hard Disk. Geovision’s recorded video can be viewed remotely from anywhere in the world via Modem, ISDN or ADSL/LAN connections.

Sampo supplies four sets of waterproof infrared DSP color CCD cameras, covering a broad range of surveillance scenarios. The Sampo VKE-C3306 CCD camera offers an effective range of up to 20 meters at optimum light and atmospheric conditions; it is backed up by a powerful built-in CDS (Cadmium-Sulfide) battery, which can guarantee continuous 24-hour detection and monitoring.

7 Scalable Barebone Systems
Advansus offers six mini-ITX based barebone systems. Recently, one Nano-ITX-core system was announced during this “once-a-year” big event. All systems are scalable for a modular design, and fully comply with the criterion of equipping a mini-ITX with a standard ATX I/O edge. All systems are well-designed and toughly built for easy set-up, quick configuration and long-term durability.
