VIA Technologies today announced its latest Android board support package (BSP) for the VIA Vantage digital signage line which enables a split-screen multi-touch user experience that provides more dynamic interaction within the limited real-estate of a single screen. The Android BSP enables the combination of app and HTML 5 based content to be displayed simultaneously on a single screen giving system integrators improved flexibility to create engaging multi-touch digital signage systems. This cost-effective solution allows customers to pack more information and richer multimedia content into a single display. VIA is demonstrating the technology with the VIA ALTA DS system at Digital Signage Expo (DSE) 2013.


“Customers can maximize the use of existing web-based content by integrating it into digital signage that is placed in key areas for their target market,” said Epan Wu, Head of VIA Embedded, VIA Technologies, Inc. “This latest Android BSP is just one example of industry leading innovation VIA Vantage solutions offer for the digital signage market”
