Helsinki Goal for ComQi Partner

E-mail Print PDF

Hartwall Arena

Helsinki’s Hartwall Arena is one of the most active and versatile arenas in Europe.

A modernization program that included 240 new displays located around the facility, recently raised the level of fan experience, something than many Jokerit ice hockey fans will appreciate for their KHL (Kontinental Hockey League) games.

Managed by ComQi partner iConnect, the system uses the EnGage platform along with 60 ComQi media players to drive all the displays, which include several video walls, screens located in the bars, walkways and hospitality suites. The content features promotions for upcoming events, food and beverage offers, and live footage streamed to all screens direct from the arena's broadcast studios.

"We are proud to deliver one of the single largest 2014 deployments of digital signage in Finland," says Henri Sarin, CEO of iConnect. "With very little time, we managed to complete the installation before the start of the hockey season through close cooperation with ComQi during the process. The competition to secure this business was tough, but ultimately we were chosen because of our content management services and ComQi's technical solutions.”

The Toshiba Encrypted Flash Drive

E-mail Print PDF

Toshiba launches the Encrypted USB Flash Drive-- a self-explanatory device armed with hardware-based encryption to provide customers with military-grade AES 256-bit security for their sensitive files.

Toshiba encrypted driveDesigned for both security-minded enterprise customers, the Encrypted USB Flash Drive carries a built-in mini-keyboard for users to input a PIN before plugging into a USB port. Once unlocked, the drive permits access to all content, and once removed it automatically re-locks and encrypts the stored media.

A further security addition is a brute force hack mechanism-- the drive renders all stored data unreadable after 10 consecutive unsuccessful attempts at PIN entry.

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) publishes the Embedded DisplayPort (ePD) standard version 1.4a-- a replacement to the February 2013 eDP v1.4 bringing an increase in video data transfer rate.

ePD 1.4It incorporates the VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) standard 1.1, as well as a segmented panel architecture allowing for higher panel integration.

Leveraging on DisplayPort 1.3 as base specification, eDP 1.4a operates at the HBR3 link rate of 8.1Gbps per lane (for maximum bandwidth of 32.4Gbps), allowing it to support 8K resolution displays. Another addition is Multi-SST Operation (MSO), a technology supporting Segmented Panel Display, a VESA display architecture for thinner, lighter and lower-cost display panels.
