VIA hides entire PC behind LCDs

Using VESA mounts

| Posted: Oct 9, 2007 12:28 am

VIA have done what they do best with their new vmpc vm7700, this being a very compact, power efficient computer system small enough to hide behind compatible LCD displays with its VESA interface.

 

The VESA mounting holes on the back of LCDs are rarely used for their original purpose of wall mounting etc. so VIA have come up with a great way here to make good use of it for saving space on the desk.

 

The vmpc vm7700 box itself comprises either a 1GHz C7 or 1.5GHz Eden ULV processor (passively cooled), and is paired with VIA's CX700M2 media processor, and it has a total power consumption level of just 12W!

 

For further information on it you can read up on the official PR over at VIA's website as well as the product page here.

 



VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading developer of x86 silicon and platform solutions, today announced the new VIA vm7700 VESA mounted PC (vmpc) that turns a standard display panel into a fully functional PC for signage, kiosk and other intelligent display applications, providing a radically superior space management, cost effective and flexible alternative to traditional panel PCs.

 

From small desktop LCD monitors to larger flat panel displays, the VIA vmpc vm7700 leverages the industry-standard Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) 10cm x 10cm mounting specification for simple attachment behind the customer's screen of choice, and offers considerable cost savings when upgrading or replacing screens. Through-chassis mounting allows the VIA vm7700 to be secured behind a flat screen display in seconds, or firmly mounted on walls or under desks, while dual-view support extends display utility.
