Sep 13, 2018 — by Jeff Child 441 views

Ibase launched its “SI-614” signage player that runs Linux or Windows 10 on a Core i5-7500 processor with up to 16GB DDR4, a choice of NVIDIA MXM NV1050 graphics cards and a 128 GB 2.5-inch SSD storage device.

Ibase Technology has announced the SI-614, its latest digital signage player based on 7th Gen Intel Core desktop processors and supporting NVIDIA MXM GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics. These cards provide 3X the performance of previous-generation graphics cards, according to the company. This is the sixth signage player Ibase has introduced this year, the most recent being its AMD Ryzen V1000 based system, the SI-324, released in late August.

The SI-614 digital signage player is designed for digital signage applications within hospitality, retail and education sectors. The standard SI-614 signage player version embeds a 7th Gen Intel Core i5-7500 processor with a NVIDIA MXM NV1050 graphics card, 16GB DDR4 memory and a 128 GB 2.5-inch SSD storage device. The graphics card itself integrates 4GB of GDDR5 128-bit memory.


Beyond the standard version of the signage player, users can choose any of the following NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics cards: GTX 1080 8GD5x, GRX 1070 8GD5, GTX 1060 6GD5, GTX 1050TI-LN 4GD5, GTX 1050-LN 4GD5 or GT1030 2GD5. The SI-614 has four DisplayPort video output connectors to support up to four independent displays. It can be configured to run our displays with each supporting 4K at 60Hz, or just one display with 8K at 60Hz resolution. Another display option is to have four displays with 2×2 VW setting or just one single display with 8K super-high-definition image/video (based on GTX 1080 8GD5x.)

The SI-614 weighs 3 kg, has dimensions of 256 x 160 x 69mm and can be installed with the standard system bracket. The model SI-614M variant comes with a system motherboard and 270W power adaptor but without processor and graphics card.

Just like the SI-324, the SI-614 integrates the Ibase iControl power management and Observer remote monitoring technology. These technologies enable energy savings, automatic power-on/off scheduling, remote monitoring, automatic power recovery, low temperature boot protection, and smart operating system restoration.

The SI-614 delivers 1x GbE, 4x USB 3.0, and 1x RS-232 serial (RJ-45) ports. Graphics interfaces include 1x HDMI 1.4 for console, and 4 DP interfaces. Onboard storage is enabled via an M.2 M-Key (2280) interface and 128 GB 2.5-inch SSD storage device. There are also full-size mini-PCIe and M.2 E-Key (2230) slots for WiFi, Bluetooth, or 4G LTE. The mini-PCIe slot also supports video capture card add-ons. A SIM card slot, audio line-out jack and a terminal block for external power button are also available.

The SI-614 comes equipped with a 19V DC input, a 220W power adapter, 2x LEDs, and a watchdog timer. The system supports 0 to 45°C temperatures and offers 5 grms, 5~500Hz, random vibration. Humidity resistance is listed as 5%~90% at 45°C (non-condensing).
