Case Study – Digital Signage & Projection Systems Assembly

The Challenge

Projecting true 1080p HD digital signage content across 6 diplays in a rugged environment with company branding.

A client who manufactures digital signage hardware came to Compatible Cable with a unique request. They required a custom video solution involving a mini-Displayport to DVI adapter. They needed to project true 1080p HD digital signage content on 6 displays at once and the standar adaptors only supported 4 displays. Additionally, their current supplier could not provide a custom cable assembly solution.

The Solution

We researched and tested different chipsets that were available on the market , but all failed QA. Instead, we modified a chipset to produce a custom solution. After significant testing in our factory, we produced sample adapters which supported Eyefinity technology and delivered true 1080p HD digital signage content simultaneously on 6 displays.

Because the client manufactured a product designed for rugged environments, they also required a mini-Displayport to DVI dongle adapter with a locking mechanism on only one side of the mini-Displayport connector. We tooled up a custom mold with a thumbscrew design mating with the client’s sheet metal so the adapter could lock in place on the outside of the case.

The client also wanted to brand this special adapter with their company logo. After receiving the client’s logo artwork and working out the proper pantone colors, we set up production to silkscreen their logo on the DVI connector housing of each adapter dongle.

The Result

Because of this custom adapter, our client can now provide their customers with a reliable product. The company is now able to support faster installation turnaround times and has seen a reduction in customer support needs. Both have driven an increase in net revenue for the company.
