Powered by Raspberry Pi
Sharp/NEC has enhanced its digital signage with a new MediaPlayer kit powered by Raspberry Pi. The NEC MediaPlayer is an intuitive, modular plug-and-play digital signage solution that’s easy to use and customise.
It comes pre-installed on a 32GB NEC Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 to swiftly integrate or retrofit inside any NEC large format display that offers the slot for Raspberry Pi CM4. When bundled with any new NEC large format display, the MediaPlayer kit is ideally placed to meet the needs of retail, quick-service restaurants, transportation and corporate environments as well as leisure and museum applications.
The MediaPlayer allows the smooth, remote operation of individual or multiple screen setups, browser-based playlists, content distribution and centralised device management. For specific feature demands, the MediaPlayer also grants easy switching to third-party content management systems directly.

Intelligent camera line up
Jabra’s new PanaCast camera lineup has been engineered to help businesses navigate the flexible hybrid way of working, combining immersive vision and video, audio technologies and artificial intelligence to completely reinvent meetings and collaboration.
The Jabra PanaCast 50 intelligent video bar features three 13-megapixel cameras mounted in a high-precision multi-camera array to create an immersive 180° field of view in panoramic 4K that covers the whole room. The virtual director feature uses both AI-based video and audio streams, as well as Jabra’s proprietary AI algorithms, to automatically adjust the frame according to what’s happening in the meeting. This allows Jabra PanaCast 50 to detect active speakers and the flow of conversation, delivering a remote meeting experience that’s fully immersive and responsive.
With the Jabra PanaCast 20 intelligent personal camera, workers benefit from high quality, secure video collaboration, in a compact, portable and easy-to-use package. The device features AI that is managed on-device with edge processing – and advanced experiences are generated directly on the device without extra data being sent to the cloud for processing, without need to install additional software. The camera has a built-in lens cover to guarantee privacy.
