Intel Corp. has unveiled its Open Pluggable Specification (OPS), which it said would help standardize the design and development of digital signs.

In a keynote at the Digital Signage Expo 2010 Industry Forum in San Diego, California,

Jose Avalos, director of retail and digital signage for Intel's Embedded and Communications Group, said that OPS has already gained the support of Microsoft, NEC Display Solutions, the Taiwan Digital Signage Special Interest Group and other major players in digital signage, which entails the use of digital display screens such as LCDs, touch screens or projectors in public venues, as well as pluggable media players.

An Intel Core processor running Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7 was used for a prototype demonstration design for OPS that Intel showcased at the keynote. Intel's vPro Technology with keyboard-video-mouse redirection capabilities allow an IT administrator to run diagnostic tests and install upgrades, as well as remotely view and control the digital display content.

Intel said the fanless and compact pluggable prototype solution creates scalable digital signage applications that can easily network with other equipment for interoperability or upgrade to fit each customer's digital signage requirements, future-proofing technology investments.
