The AOPEN ISE 2017 stand hosts the European launch of the Chrome Mini range with the Chromebox Mini and Chromebase Mini, as well as the AOPEN Surveillance platform.
The Chrome Mini range consists of a pair of Chrome OS-powered devices. The Chromebox Mini is a solid-state device described by the company as the smallest enterprise-ready Chromebox currently available on the market. It supports Chrome Device Management and features a fanless design, Bluetooth, wide-reaching dual-band antenna and power button extension ports for ease of mounting.
Meanwhile the Chromebase Mini is an all-in-one 10.1 inch solution. It does not require a kiosk protective case, and unlike a consumer touch device it is water- and tamper-proof. It supports AV conferencing platforms such as Google Hangouts, and offers mounting via built-in Vesa stand. Also included are a camera, audio and dual-microphone, while optional extras include recess wall mounts, PoE adapters and adapters for various payment solutions.
Another AOPEN offering at ISE is the Surveillance platform-- a hardware platform designed for "intense usage and 24/7 operability." It combines professional-grade hardware and flexible integration options, with different devices and solutions customers can set up in various ways. Thus, one can pick an NVR/analytics server from the Digital Engine platform, an AiO display from the eTILE range and consolidate all with Engine Core solutions.
The final product seen at the show is the Digital Engine range of computing devices. All promise low power consumption and 24/7 operability, making them ideal for integration in kiosks, POS systems or mounting behind a display. AOPEN says all systems pass shock and vibration tests, and some are fanless for use in tough environments or installation in moving vehicles.
