VIA Technologies, Inc. (Taipei, Taiwan) has introduced the VIA VIPRO VP7710 touch screen panel PC, a fullfeatured, fanless panel PC suitable for intelligent display applications in demanding environments. The VIA VIPRO is a costeffective, intelligent display that can handle commercial applications such as ticketing, ATM, vending, and information kiosks as well as sophisticated fleet deployment infrastructures in transport, delivery, and logistics enterprises. The VIA VIPRO is highly suited for human-machine interface (HMI) industrial applications such as factory automation and control, supporting the addition of a second independently configured screen for dual-display applications.

ImageUsing a combination of heavy steel and aluminum, a 10.4" TFT display is housed in a solid chassis that provides shock and vibration protection. The touch screen conforms to IP65 standards, making it resistant to both water and dust. Installation via wall, table, panel, or VESA mounting options means the ultra-thin VIA VIPRO can be installed easily in a variety of positions where its wider-than-normal viewing angle makes it visible to all.

Powered by either a 1.6GHz VIA Eden or 1.0GHz C7 processor, the VIA VIPRO VP710 supports up to 1GB of DDR2 system memory, and has integrated VIA UniChrome™ Pro II 2D/3D graphics and MPEG- 2/4, WMV9 hardware accelerated decoding. Storage includes support for both IDE and S-ATA 2.5" hard drives and a compact flash socket. Connectivity includes Gigabit LAN support and an optional wireless module. The low panel I/O includes two USB 2.0 ports and three COM ports, with variable RC settings and PS/2 support. HD audio is accessible through standard audio jacks.
