Why is Corn Digital's Non-PC Solution Better?




PC Based Solution


Corn Digital's Non-PC Solution is better than other PC Solutions in the market because PC Solutions tend to have:

1. High service cost: PC uses fan for heat ventilation, uses moving parts such as HDD, these components may cause malfunction and increase maintenance cost.

2. High failure rate: Without UPS protection, PC will easily cause OS/HDD boot failure due to power blackout.

3. High maintenance: PC OS needs periodic register clean or OS recovery.

Utilize DMP technology, Ceres-86's design has made Digital Signage appliance an easier device like TV, just turn it on and it starts. Comparison of an example on PC base TV, your PC will need to install TV card and wait OS boot and then TV program execution. More complicated procedure causes problems more frequently.

The "Digital Media Processor" technology is a high performance audio/video decoder processor. Unlike the PC based hardware systems' construction on heavy, bulky CPU heat sink and mass memory, the Digital Media Processor is fanless and uses less memory while provides even more stable audio/video performance and keeps your cost competitive.
