VIA Announces ARM Cortex A9 Based Digital Signage System

VIA has unveiled its ARM Digital Signage (DS) system for cost sensitive high volume digital signage deployments. The system is based on an unnamed Cortex A9 processor (possibly Wondermedia WM8850?) with up to 2 GB RAM and 64 GB Flash. The company expects the device to be used in a wide range of applications such as kiosks, POS systems, video walls, menu boards to TVOIP, cloud streaming, and Out of Home Advertising.


Here are the specs of this digital signage player:

  • All in one system-ready to load software
  • Designed for Android operating system
  • Industry standard ARM Cortex A9 SoC
  • Hardware acceleration of the most demanding video formats for resolutions up to 1080p
  • DVI-D display port (HDMI Optional)
  • 4x USB 2.0 ports
  • 10/100 Ethernet port
  • Audio-out/ Mic-in
  • Up to 64GB NAND Flash
  • Up to 2GB DDR3 SDRAM
  • Dimension – 18 cm x 12 cm x 2.5 cm

The VIA ARM DS system is said to be compatible with the latest “Digital Content Management” software with giving names, but I suppose this includes Scala, Ayuda (OpenSplash), Navori and the likes.

If you are an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) providing digital signage solutions or a system integratos interested in developing solutions based on this system, you can contact VIA Embedded at
