The new controller can be easily integrated into existing Windows and Linux environments and can be adapted to suit individual needs. Distec offers a starter set consisting of BaseBoard, CM3, 10.1-inch Super Fine TFT display with PCAP Multi-Touch and all necessary cables. This kit supports developers to start their own projects in a fast and uncomplicated way. The pre-installed Raspbian ensures a quick setup and also gives access to a large community support network.
The Artista-IoT is based on a full-fledged scaler chip and controls almost every TFT display and modern PCAP multi-touch screens directly. The controller board allows special functions such as DICOM pre-set, gamma correction and color calibration. It supports 100Mbit Ethernet and provides a real-time clock. Available interfaces include USB, GPIOs, I²C and UART. Long-term availability is at least six years. On the basis of the Artista-IoT, Distec already offers standard solutions for a wide range of applications. From the second quarter of 2017, Distec will provide the following solutions: the Artista-IoT series, starter kits, VideoPoster-IV and Raspbian as a basis for customer-specific software developments such as mediaplayers. From the third quarter of 2017, the WebPoster and integration into the POS-Line series will be added.
