Digi International, a provider of communications technology, has introduced the Digi ShowBox – a presentation player for tradeshow exhibits, information displays, mobile workforce presentations or any other electronic exhibit.
The company has claimed that Digi ShowBox will eliminate the need for notebook PCs with electronic presentations, displays or exhibits.
It features two modes: play and configuration/thumbnail. Play mode begins running content as soon as the USB drive is inserted or allows mouse control for image advance. Configuration/thumbnail mode allows users to view graphics as thumbnails if more than one presentation is included on a single flash drive. It also allows users to choose between various sorting, slide playing and startup modes that allow for customization in how and when the multiple presentations appear.
Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing at Digi International, said: The Digi ShowBox is small enough to fit in your jacket pocket. It has no fan or hard drive so is extremely rugged and easy to ship. It’s one-third to one-fourth the cost of a laptop and eliminates the cost and hassle of printed graphics.
