VIA Announces Ultra Thin VESA Mounted PC Page: 1
VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading developer of x86 silicon and platform solutions, today announced the new VIA vm7700 VESA mounted PC (vmpc) that turns a standard display panel into a fully functional PC for signage, kiosk and other intelligent display applications. Providing a radically superior space management, cost effective and flexible alternative to traditional panel PCs.
From small desktop LCD monitors to larger flat panel displays, the VIA vmpc vm7700 leverages the industry-standard Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) 10cm x 10cm mounting specification for simple attachment behind the customer's screen of choice, and offers considerable cost savings when upgrading or replacing screens. Through-chassis mounting allows the VIA vm7700 to be secured behind a flat screen display in seconds, or firmly mounted on walls or under desks, while dual-view support extends display utility.
Available with either the 1.0GHz VIA C7 or 1.5GHz VIA Eden ULV processors, the VIA vmpc supports up to 1GB of power efficient DDR2 system memory, a 2.5” HDD or DOM interface, four USB ports and a COM port as standard. Networking is taken care of with a VIA Gigabit Ethernet port and optional Wireless IEEE 802.11b/g module. The completely fanless vm7700 mounted PC also has DVI-D, D-Sub and S-Video TV-out interfaces with native dual-view configurations. System management options include Wake-on-Lan, ACPI support, Power Failure Recovery and Watch Dog Timer features.
