Elo Module

Elo has announced a new Android-powered Elo Computer Module accessory, which can be used with 32- to 70-inch digital signage displays as an all-in-one solution for both content delivery and hardware management. If you're on the hunt for such a setup for your business or event, you'll definitely want to check out Elo's solution, which aims to provide a complete interactive platform.

Press Release

MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Elo, a global supplier of digital touchscreen solutions, today announced the extension of its EloView cloud-based management software to the large-format interactive digital signage product line with the introduction of an ARM-based computer option. This new Android Elo Computer Module (Android ECM) accessory, available for 32"-70" interactive signage displays, provides a secure all-in-one solution for content delivery and device management. Additionally, location-based services can be enabled with iBeacon technology. The high-performance, commercial-grade computer module, coupled with the EloView cloud-based management software, transforms Elo's large-format interactive digital displays into a complete interactive platform. The Android ECM is available to order today.

EloView is a device management, content delivery and auto-deployment platform. It has a modular architecture for integration with content management systems, point of sale (POS) software partners and mobile device management (MDM) systems. The Android ECM, coupled with EloView and Elo's large-format touchscreen digital signage products, enables omnichannel consistency by allowing customers to leverage their existing responsive websites, mobile digital content and apps with minimal investment and development time.

Retailers are looking for ways to simplify deployment and management of in-store digital signage, and Elo is committed to providing solutions that combine stylish, commercial-grade hardware with simple and secure device management and content delivery. From loyalty rewards and endless aisle, to self-service payment installations and beyond, the Android ECM provides the performance needed with a powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ CPU. The Android ECM slides into the back of the touchscreen display to deliver the industry's thinnest commercial-grade, all-in-one Android touch computer at 32-inch, 42-inch, 55-inch or 70-inch screen sizes. AC power, video and USB signals pass between the computer module and the Elo IDS touch display via an internal docking connector. Use of computer modules instead of a separate external computer box reduces complexity, minimizes the mounting profile and may also reduce installation costs.

"With this addition, Elo's Android solution now spans from 10 to 70 inches," said Craig Witsoe, CEO of Elo. "Retailers can trust Elo to deliver the performance needed for demanding, media-rich, interactive experiences throughout the physical store, no matter what the size or use case. Elo continues to make the deployment and management of interactive signage easier, less expensive and more secure."

Overall, Elo provides seamless integration of hardware and software, allowing for real-time remote control of volume as well as apps and content deployment with no cables to connect, no cabinet or need to hide players and cables. The Android ECM is available to demo at NRF on January 17-20 in New York City at Elo booth #1302. For more information, visit www.elointeractive.com.
