Raspberry Pi - The Smart Expansion

The open platform modular approach with Raspberry Pi has opened up endless possibilities enabling a seamless integration of Raspberry Pi's devices with NEC's displays.

Originally developed to get children engaged in computing and programming, Raspberry Pi has become the essential single board computer for its powerful programmable hardware and open platform support.

When Raspberry Pi introduced the Compute Module, their core Raspberry Pi computer in an SO-DIMM form factor, they brought their open platform solution into a modular design for seamless integration in a variety devices and applications.

This evolution to the SO-DIMM form factor created the perfect opportunity for NEC Display Solutions to design displays that can host the Compute Module inside; turning the newest generation of large-screen displays into a fully networkable computer.

Seeing the need for expanded memory capabilities in more demanding applications, beyond the standard 4 GB Compute Modules, NEC Display Solutions has developed a custom 16 GB edition of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module. The increased on-board storage provides even greater flexibility when planning a large-screen display installation, with ample space for applications and media to customize the setup to almost any environment. The NEC display is fully compatible with the standard Raspberry Pi 4 GB Compute Modules (version 1 or 3), ensuring that existing Raspberry Pi modules can be easily integrated in the NEC display.

Innovate with Raspberry Pi Compute Module Integrated Solutions from NEC

Corporate

Modular, powerful, flexible

Raspberry Pi offers corporations a powerful SoC design that will run a number of business applications.  Its modular design makes it a snap to be supported and serviced.  With its flexible design architecture this single computing solution will fit a variety of needs.

Digital Signage

Open source, tool development support, full motion video

With its open source design, developers have the opportunity to take advantage of a variety of tools to help run their application on the Raspberry Pi.  Add in full HD support and the Raspberry Pi compute module is an excellent choice for digital signage.

Education

Detailed how-to projects, Mathmatica, online teaching resources

The NEC Edition of the Raspberry Pi compute module ships preloaded with the full version of the Raspbian OS with Pixel.  This means that users can take advantage of pre-loaded software such as Mathmatica.  The raspberrypi.org website has a number of teaching resources, plus how-to projects with detailed instructions, to help schools integrate Raspberry Pi into their curriculum. 

Presentation and Training

Includes open office Libre, Multiple USB connectivity, touch display compatibility

With preloaded software, like open office Libre, the NEC edition of the Raspberry Pi compute module makes it an excellent choice to incorporate into training rooms and anywhere the display will be used for presentations. Combining the Raspberry Pi compute module with one of NEC's -T integrated touch displays is an easy way to implement a collaborative solution into your meeting space.

Restaurant

Low cost PC alternative, convenient system on a chip design (SoC), wifi connectivity optional

With its price point and powerful SoC design, combining Raspberry Pi with an NEC large format display creates an ideal solution for menu and promotional boards. Having the flexibility to use a WiFi dongle (not included), to take advantage of wireless connectivity, gives the user greater options for installation locations.

Transportation

Display control and integration, LAN connectivity through the display, 1080P resolution

Having the ability to control the display directly from the Raspberry Pi allows network administrators to control the display when the Raspberry Pi is connected via LAN. Coupling this control with full 1920x1080 HD resolution makes this solution perfect for FIDS, travel info, or most any transportation application.

Wayfinding

16GB of internal memory, HID compatibility, Full Raspbian OS

Having 16GB of internal memory lets users load more graphical content than a typical SoC. Combine that with HID compatibility and having the full version of the Raspbian OS w/ Pixel pre-installed, the Raspberry Pi Compute Module is an excellent candidate to be used in a wayfinding solution. Utilizing one of NEC’s –T integrated touch displays with the Raspberry Pi creates a wayfinding solution that is as economical as it is reliable.
