Customize for cloud connectivity, UI and more.
ST-700 is a high-quality 4K digital signage player, which has been widely deployed, especially in Japan. The product comes with a free on-premise CMS named SX Sign Control, which provides a simple UI, and easy-to-understand procedure to create split-screen contents, schedule the contents, and load the program to each ST-700 on your network. It features following by default:
- 4K30p output from the HDMI output
- 3 x USB ports
- 2 x Ethernet ports, one of them support 802.3at PoE PD
- 32GB eMMC integrated (20GB for signage contents)
- Dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi integrated for both AP (Access Point) and STA (Station) support
- 802.1X Radius authentication for Wi-Fi STA connection
- H.264, H.265/HEVC codec
- HTML5 support
- Touch panel support over USB
- Time synchronous operation over the network among up to 9 ST-700 units (for tiled display or synchronous playback)
- -10 Celsius degree operating temperature support
By utilizing built-in secure Wi-Fi connectivity, you can securely integrate the digital signage into your existing Wi-Fi infrastructure or build Wi-Fi infrastructure dedicated to digital signage.
Up to nine ST-700s synchronize the content playback to enable the tiled digital signage. Thanks to the generous connectivity models, including Wi-Fi connection, Ethernet daisy-chaining, or tree topology over Ethernet, the ST-700 gives you a couple of options for installation. It does not require an external clock source for synchronization. The timing of each player is synchronized over the network.
The ST-700 can enable interactive digital signage through the USB connection with a touch display/panel. As it supports HTML5 content, websites can be displayed on digital signage, and visitors can browse necessary information through the touch display.
