It’s the ideal solution for:
» Corporate campuses
» Government offices
» Schools and universities
» Healthcare
» Hotels and restaurants
» Retail and entertainment
Digital signage: why you should get it.
Digital signage: now much more affordable.
No other medium makes it possible to deliver compelling content at the
right location at the right time for maximum impact. It works whether your
goal is to:
• Increase sales and profits.
• Inform, educate, notify, or alert.
• Encourage certain behavior.
• Satisfy customers or employees.
• Improve business processes.
• Or all the above.
People on the go often overlook or ignore posters, flyers, and other
traditional printed signage. Strengthen your marketing, as well as your internal
communications, by replacing boring static signage with eye-catching digital
signage in lobbies, waiting rooms, or any place frequented by your target
audience.
Digital signage is more affordable and easier to implement than ever
before. It’s no longer the domain of large corporations and retailers. Even
small businesses can easily set up and profit from digital signage.
Plus, you can:
• Benefit from a choice of content-layout tools and ready-made layouts,
empowering you to create truly professional-looking
presentations — without adding creative and technical staff!
• Get up and running with minimal training.
• Easily deploy and manage your digital signage from any browser-based
connection.
• Get most or all of what you need upfront, so you’re not nickle-anddimed year after year with ongoing licensing or SaaS fees.
• Integrate it into an existing IT network without having to replace existing
equipment, set up a separate operating architecture, or buy extra PCs.
Digital signage: how its flexibility benefits you.
Digital signage: how to get started.
With today’s digital signage technologies, you can:
• Upsell, cross-sell, merchandise, advertise.
• Create welcome messaging, menu boards, and wayfinding screens.
• Share information faster, including meeting announcements, schedules,
event times, and public health information.
• Improve the in-store experience for customers, and create dynamic
product and service promotions.
• Use existing content to create compelling messaging.
• Integrate live video and Internet news feeds (RSS or XML feeds, for
instance), so you’re not forced to supply all the content yourself.

We know choosing a digital signage platform can be an overwhelming
task. Simplify the decision making by talking to Black Box today.
Our Digital Signage Success Managers, well versed in the latest digital
signage technologies in the industry, can help you implement a system that
gives you everything you need: flexibility, affordability, and the ability to get
your digital signage up and running fast — without having to navigate a sea
of technical and broadcasting jargon.
For simplicity and cost effectiveness, our award-winning iCOMPEL™
platform can’t be beat (see the facing page for how it compares with other
similarly priced solutions). For more on the iCOMPEL, see pages 6-9.

Front view: ICOMP
Create, distribute, and manage digital signage content easily with
iCOMPEL digital signage appliances and players from Black Box.
Ideal for both large and small installations, iCOMPEL units work right
out of the box with all software preinstalled — and no recurring licensing
or SaaS fees to deal with later. And software updates are always free.
Extensive media format support.
Because the iCOMPEL units support many media formats, you can
combine video with scrolling text, photos, Flash, and Web content. In
addition to HTML and RSS media, they handle MPEG, AVI, QuickTime®, and
PowerPoint® media; JPEG, GIF, and TIFF images; and WAV and MP3 audio.
You can also order the iCOMPEL with a built-in video capture card for
set-top box connections. It’s ideal for displaying both stored video and live
video — even side by side in zones within the same screen!
Includes FREE layouts.
Customize them how
you like!
Simple, browser-based control of signage.
Flexible presentation creation with included software.
Install the iCOMPEL appliances and players on a network and manage
them via a browser from any PC or Mac® on a wide area network (WAN).
One iCOMPEL unit used as a publisher can send media over the network
to an iCOMPEL subscriber unit — even on the other side of the world.
Scaling from a standalone installation to a multichannel network with
many screens is simply a matter of adding more iCOMPEL units to your
standard IT network configuration.
The preloaded software includes a number of free professionally
designed layouts, so you can be up and running, displaying your choice
of content in a nicely laid-out screen within minutes.
Or you can create your own. The iCOMPEL’s intuitive layout and design
tool makes it easy to create and modify layouts. Adjust, resize, position, and
layer zones with a simple click and drag! You can also manually set pixel or
percentage measurements for very accurate alignment. It’s all up to you.
Out-of-the-box, plug-and-display setup.
Custom fonts plus XML and RSS feeds.
Setup is easy. Just connect the iCOMPEL appliance to your network and
to an LCD or other display device, power it up, and once it has an IP address
from the network, you can use a browser to access the network appliance
via a DHCP server. Fixed IP addresses can also be set. (For sample
applications, see the facing page.)
To upload media, drag and drop from your PC or Mac desktop or folder
to the iCOMPEL media folders on the appliance’s internal hard disk or use
the iCOMPEL user interface to browse for and upload the media files.
You also have the flexibility to format text so it’s consistent with the look
and feel of your branding. That’s because the iCOMPEL supports importing
custom fonts. You can set their style, weight, and color, as well as control
their scroll speed across the screen.
Stream in a text crawl alerting visitors to important announcements,
display local weather via an XML feed, or provide the latest local or national
news headlines via subscriber RSS feeds. They’re all easy to set up using
the iCOMPEL content delivery interface screen.
Advanced tools for content scheduling and local updates.
Six compelling reasons for iCOMPEL
• It gives you the flexibility to create attention-getting digital signage
without a lot of creative or technical know-how.
• It’s scalable from one to many digital signage displays.
• It’s an affordable, one-time investment with no ongoing fees.
• It keeps digital signage simple and it’s easy for beginners to master.
• It’s easy to integrate; it won‘t cause IT and security headaches.
• It’s from an industry leader with FREE 24/7 technical support who
can supply everything you need for end-to-end digital signage.
6
All iCOMPEL units that work as a publisher can be used to control
multiple content channels. This way, you can deliver a high-impact display
to different audiences at various sites throughout the day.
Every zone in a display layout has its own playlist with its own media
files running according to its own preset schedule or in a continuous loop.
Different layouts can be scheduled to play at different times of the day.
Plus, all iCOMPEL units support general-purpose input/output (GPIO)
capabilities so content playing can be triggered (or halted) by signals
originating from external device inputs — from a motion sensor, for example.
Even better, you can also log into a screen-connected subscriber unit to
interrupt and update content on the fly. Great for real-time alerts!

Hospitals and doctors’ offices
use the iCOMPEL to communicate
more effectively with patients,
visitors, and staff. Its intuitive
software enables the average
office manager to easily set
up a messaging system in lobbies,
waiting rooms, and cafeterias to
quickly broadcast announcements,
menus, and other time-sensitive
information. It’s also great
for promoting wellness clinics,
seminars, and other events.
And because it’s browser
controllable, users have a
straightforward way to manage
media distributed to facilities
across a large medical system.

Touch screen support available as an option.
With the optional touch screen license,
you can also turn your iCOMPEL into a
interactive sign and kiosk platform.
Screens can be configured to respond
to a touch anywhere on the panel or react
differently when pressed in different areas
of the panel. Touching a specific zone
causes a command to be issued to the
iCOMPEL, which, in turn, causes the media being played to change. Plus,
each zone can have an independent playlist for touch interactivity.
You can even set a zone within the screen to play HTML media. When
a user touches that zone, they can interact with a Web page you specify —
great for putting your electronic product catalog before any audience!
To order the touch screen option, call Tech Support at 030-2417799.
Contact us about other advanced capabilities
Please contact Tech Support and tell us about your intended application.
We’ll recommend how you can use iCOMPEL for your specific needs.
For instance, in addition to providing the traditional benefits of digital
signage for marketing and informational purposes, the iCOMPEL offers
override messaging, which means the system can be used as a real-time
emergency notification and crisis-management solution. This is particularly
useful in education or government building settings. If a crisis occurs,
administrators or security personnel can issue evacuation notices or lockdown
alerts from a previously programmed iCOMPEL playlist. We’ll explain how.
Want to set up and manage a large, multichannel digital signage network — one spanning many locations?
Add the NEW iCOMPEL Deployment Manager (iDM)!
It enables you to:
• Monitor and remotely manage multiple iCOMPEL units and groups.
• Receive immediate e-mail alerts on alarm conditions in the network.
• Set up live and historic status reporting for every unit.
• Know what media has played on every remote screen.
• Send user-defined RS-232 messages to any remote display
• Create a secure virtual private network (VPN) for all units (option).

The association wanted some type of slide show that
could run on a laptop. Mr. Wall suggested a much
more flexible solution—iCOMPEL. The original
plan included six monitors around the hall to display
the game information. During the installation,
the idea came up to install cameras for live feeds of
the bingo blower so patrons could see the ball
capture. That led to a total of 22 monitors around the
hall.
“It’s visual entertainment,” said Mr. Wall.

The president of the association saw another way to
put iCOMPEL to work for him. He contracted with
local businesses to run sponsorship ads. That enabled
him to expand the system from one iCOMPEL to
three units so now he can run three sets
of ads concurrently around the room, show the live
ball capture, and the game information.

Black Box Explains
DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI interfaces.
DisplayPort is a new digital video interface that was
designed by the Video Electronics Standards Association
(VESA) in 2006 and has been produced since 2008. It competes directly
with HDMI®. Unlike HDMI, however, DisplayPort is an open standard with
no royalties.
This versatile interface is capable of delivering digital video, audio,
bidirectional communications, and accessory power over a single
connector. Newer DisplayPort++ connectors support both DVI and HDMI
connections with the use of an adapter.
Also, the DisplayPort connector is very compact and has latches that
don’t add to its size — a quick squeeze of the connector releases the
latch. Because it locks into place, accidental or intentional disconnections
are much less likely.
DisplayPort v1.1 supports a maximum of 10.8 Gbps over a 2-meter
cable; v1.2 supports up to 21.6 Gbps. DisplayPort v1.2 also supports
daisychaining up to four displays with a single output cable.
Without an extender that converts the signal for CATx transmission,
DisplayPort supports cable lengths of up to nearly 15 m with maximum
resolutions at about 30 m Bidirectional signaling enables DisplayPort to
both send and receive data from an attached device.
12
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface®)
combines uncompressed HD video, multichannel audio,
and intelligent format and command data in a single cable with a very
compact connector.
The maximum HDMI cable length without amplifiers is typically about
5 meters for true HD resolutions without signal loss. All that aside, HDMI
provides superior HDTV video and audio clarity and has enough
bandwidth (up to 5 Gigabytes) to spare for future applications. Plus it is
backward compatible with DVI (which simply ignores extra HDMI data).
DVI (Digital Video Interface) is the standard digital interface for PCs (in
contrast to HDMI, which is more commonly found on HDTV devices). The
standard is based on transition-minimized differential signaling (TMDS).
Single-link DVI uses one TMDS-165 MHz transmitter and dual-link DVI uses
two, doubling the transmission power. A single-link cable can transmit a
resolution of 1920 x 1200 vs. 2560 x 1600 for a dual-link cable.
Several types of DVD connectors are available: DVI-D, for linking
a digital source and monitors; DVI-A, for use between
a computer and an analog device; and DVI-I, which
integrates both digital and analog RGB support (it can
DVI-D, Dual Link
transmit either digital-to-digital signals or an analog-toanalog signal).

and enable much longer distances than what’s ordinarily
possible with digital video cabling.
Networked IP extenders use transmitters

The HD View HDMI is a high-performance,
point-to-point HDMI distribution system for
digital audio and high-definition video content
at 1080p/60 Hz resolutions.
Easy to set up and use, it’s ideal for high-end
multimedia AV distribution and HD digital signage
applications. It “narrowcasts” from a digital
signage player or PC to a remote screen in realtime without any video or sound degradation.
Plus, it transfers DDC signaling for optimum
monitor-video source communications. And unlike
other HDMI products that require two cables for
HDMI and DDC transfers, the HD View HDMI
uses the same CATx cable to transfer video and
DDC configuration data (via emulation or a preset
table) — simplifying installation further.
NOTE: With 62.5-/125-µm fiber, link distance is
reduced to 180 m.

Daisychainable
You only need a second CATx cable (plugged
in between DDC ports of the transmitter and
receiver) when you want to read DDC data
directly from the screen and if you also want
to exchange HDCP and CEC information.
NOTE: Distance and performance depend on the
cables and the resolution of your graphics card.

CAT5 Video, Stereo Audio, & Pollable Data
Distribution System
Extend VGA video and stereo audio over CAT5 and
control individual displays — even those in a daisychain!
With stereo audio or duplex RS-232 serial
communications support, our CAT5 Video, Stereo
Audio, & Pollable Data Distribution System gives
you more flexibility in your AV distribution
or interactive digital signage applications.
They simplify your extension installation
and save you money by eliminating the need
for additional CAT5 cables for stereo audio
and bidirectional serial data.
Along with VGA video, they distribute stereo
audio to remotely connected speakers and
addressable serial data for independent control of
one or more connected displays. They’re ideal for
controlling digital signage remotely — turn each
display on or off, check and update display
settings (brightness, contrast, etc.), and even
receive data from interactive devices such as touch
screens. Send RS-232 serial data from a media
player or other content server to multiple
daisychained displays and have them report back.
Choose your receiver(s) depending on
the distance you need and if you want skew
compensation. To eliminate skew on CATx cable,
simply turn a knob to adjust the skew delay.

Black Box Explains
Analog video connectors.
VGA — The Video Graphics Array interface carries
analog RGB with separate horizontal and vertical sync
signals and is presented on an HD15 connector (also
called 15-pin D-subminiature).
When VGA was introduced by IBM® in 1987 for PC video display, it
was a huge improvement over the earlier EGA DB9 connector. VGA, the
basic format, supports resolutions up to 640 x 480 with 256 colors.
SVGA (Super VGA), XGA, and later formats continued the drive to
provide ever-sharper images and greater color depth. Plus, over the years,
VESA standards have brought structure and interoperability to a market
that was becoming a mixture of often incompatible SVGA graphics cards.
Later formats supported even higher resolutions—oftentimes, rivalling
those of digital 1080i and 1080p displays. These later formats include
SXGA (1280 x 1024), UXGA (1600 x 1200) and WUXGA (1920 x 1200).
16
Composite video — Typically presented as a yellow RCA
connector, the analog Composite interface has been the
standard interface for consumer TV equipment. As its name
suggests, Composite video has the luminance (black and white),
chrominance (color) and sync pulses combined in one signal.
S-Video — Also called Y/C video, S-Video was introduced to
overcome some shortfalls associated with Composite video. It’s a
less encoded video format, transmitting color (C) and luminance
(Y) information separately to produce a sharper image.
Component video — This YCbCr connector separates the
signal more than S-Video for less interference and improved
video. In addition to Y (luminance) signals, it transmits color
information as two signals: B-Y (Blue minus luminance, also
called Cb or Pb) and R-Y (Red minus luminance, also called Cr or Pr).

Black Box Explains
Alternatives to analog video cable extension.
Extending video long distances isn’t often possible or practical using
standard VGA or coax cabling. With Composite, Component, and other
analog video cabling, frequency losses result in deteriorated video quality.
Generally, with these cables, the shorter distance the better.
Extenders that extend analog video over UTP copper or fiber optic
cable solve this problem, enabling you to use backbone or horizontal
wiring for your long-distance extensions. Depending on the extender
model, video input can be VGA, Component, S-Video, Composite, or
BNC coax. They’re a great alternative to using analog video or coax cables,
which often can’t be easily pulled through tight conduits and can be more
difficult to terminate. What’s really nice is, in most buildings, copper or
fiber cabling is already installed to service data communications.
Fiber-based extenders provide higher bandwidth and interference-free
extensions at distances much farther than copper-type CATx extenders.

But there‘s the matter of cost. CATx extenders that use cabling and
connectors cost considerably less than fiber cabling components.
Another thing to consider: Coax- or VGA-cabled extension installations
usually require a separate RS-232 or other line for transmitting the control
signal for the display— yet another cable to fit into the conduit. CATx cable,
however, delivers both the video and control signals through a single
transmission medium.
But what if you have long runs of coax installed? An extender like the
MediaCento RF that uses low-cost RF cabling to broadcast video to remote
HDTV screens may be the answer. Supporting both VGA and Component
video source input, the MediaCento RF encodes and modulates signals for
single-channel RF transmission over existing coax wiring. The QAM tuner
at the screen enables the reception of the high-definition MediaCento RF
channel, so no set-top box or other piece of hardware is required.

Why install new cabling for digital signage or
AV signal distribution when you can use existing
coax runs instead? The MediaCento™ RF gives
you a simple, affordable way to do just that.
With it, you can convert video from a
Component or VGA video source into an HDTV
cable channel, extending that channel over
standard coax RF wiring in your building.
As a combination MPEG 2 encoder and
frequency-agile QAM modulator, the MediaCento
RF encodes video and audio then modulates
signals for single-channel RF coax transmission,
creating a well-formed 6-MHz QAM 256 channel
for the 50 – 900-MHz modulation range (Channels
2–135) of a digital cable system. You use the
QAM tuner in your display to decode the signals.
Great for digital signage!
It’s a particularly economical alternative to
installing a digital signage player at each and
every display when the messaging is the same
on every display (which can be overkill in terms
of equipment costs). You can use a single player
to feed content over existing coax cabling to an
unlimited number of displays. MediaCento RF
essentially enables you to distribute HD content
for $0 per display! And that’s not counting the
money saved by not having to install new wiring
and wallplates.
The MediaCento RF is also ideal for businesses
and public venues that currently have HD content
that they’d like to send to on-premises HDTVs.

Black Box Explains
HDMI
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is the first digital
interface to combine uncompressed high-definition video, multichannel
audio, and intelligent format and command data in a single cable. The
HDMI standard was introduced in December 2002, and HDMI 1.2 was
released in August 2005. HDMI is supported by many leading consumer
electronics manufacturers, motion picture studios, cable providers and
satellite services.
The HDMI connector is compact and is somewhat similar to a USB
connector. Use this serial interface to connect audio/video equipment, such
as DVD players, a set-top box and A/V receivers with an audio and/or
video monitor, such as digital TV over a single cable. HDMI works with
standard, enhanced, and high-definition video. It has a bandwidth of up to
5 Gigabytes so it supports all HDTV standards and has bandwidth to spare
for future applications.
HDMI offers significant benefits over older analogue AV connections. It
provides superior video and audio clarity because there’s no signal loss from
digital-to-analogue conversions. Plus it supports resolutions of 1920 x 1080p
and multiple audio formats from standard stereo to multichannel surround
sound. Plus, it provides two-way communication between the video source
and the digital TV, enabling simple, remote, point-and-click configurations.
HDMI is emerging as the connection standard for HDTV and the consumer
electronics market. Because HDMI transmits all signals over one cable, it’s quite
desirable for home cinema electronics and systems. It greatly simplifies the
installation of home entertainment systems by eliminating the tangle of cables
running behind the system. It’s also very cost effective because only one cable
is needed.
What’s more, HDMI is backward compatible with DVI equipment, such
as PC’, TV’s and other electronic devices using the DVI standard. The DVI
device simply ignores the extra data.
