Minicom Advanced Systems, a leader in digital signage player-to-screen connectivity, is showcasing a new power management and remote support system that completes the player to screen comprehensive solution at this year's InfoComm in Las Vegas, Nevada June 17-20, 2008.

Due to the increase of energy prices and concern for the environment Minicom has created a power management solution called PowerOnCable that increases Lifespan/Slash power Costs of LCD, Plasma and Projectors. Simply Connect PowerOnCable to Minicom's DS Vision 3000 system and power on/off LCD, Plasma and projector display devices that do not have their own serial ports for communication with DS Vision 3000. PowerOnCable will radically improve display device lifespan and power consumption costs.

What are you going to do when your mission critical media player malfunctions in the middle of a public environment? You can't simply take out a ladder and bring in a repairman for an hour or two to fix it in front of your viewers. Minicom's remote support solution enables you to troubleshot your Digital Signage player anytime from anywhere in the world. Simply connect PowerOnCable to Minicom's IP gateways (IP Control or PX) for full power control of mission critical Digital Signage (on/off, reboot or unfreeze). The IP Control or PX are state-of-the-art IP devices for remote, out-of-band KVM (Keyboard video and mouse) access to Digital Signage Digital Signage players. They provide remote command in real time and enables troubleshooting even when the operating system is down.

Dave Haar, vice president - Digital Signage Division, "These products complete the world's only comprehensive solution for remote support & power control for the Digital Signage Last Mile. We are proud to have our products displayed in eight of our Digital Signage strategic partners InfoComm booths. We will be offering private sessions of our technology at our suite-across-the-street from the LVCC at the Marriott Residence Inn. Plan a break for yourself and check out the Power management, remote support and DS Vision 3000 in comfort and luxury."
