Intel® SDM Intelligent Display Experiences
With the Intel® Smart Display Module (Intel® SDM), display solutions manufacturers, integrators, and resellers gain standardization, interoperability, and scalability with higher quality and connectivity at a lower design and development cost.
In the Words of Customers and Partners
“Intel® Smart Display Module (Intel® SDM) is a natural and future-proof form factor evolution for high-quality digital signage at retail locations, advanced-feature interactive whiteboards in offices, and mission-critical applications in transportation and control rooms. We are working with Intel® SDM ecosystem partners to provide hassle-free and economically reasonable solutions for all markets and continuously add state-of-the-art technologies to support 8K resolution, advanced hybrid meeting platform, and ever-increasing security requirements.”
“The Intel® SDM platform simplifies display and video wall installations by reducing costs and complexities, as well as by being future-proof. Apantac SDM cards accept various input formats—12G-SDI, SDVoE, NDI, and HDBaseT—and interface to an SDM-capable display. Our SDM modules are transforming the market for broadcast, AV, and video wall installations by leveraging the ‘smart’ in SDM.”
“Standardizing interfaces and supporting HDMI 2.1 in professional displays is critical to enabling higher performance in signage, retail, and many other applications. The Intel® Smart Display Module is a big step in this direction, which will help lower costs and widen adoption of 8K displays as well.”
“Using Intel® SDM, installers can expand the ease of use of our infrastructure to every compatible display by simply integrating the AV-over-IP decoders straight into the back of the display, making every screen connected.”
Frequently Asked Questions
As digital displays get thinner and power-efficient performance becomes more critical, the Intel® Smart Display Module (Intel® SDM) specification and reference design delivers the same level of intelligence and interoperability as the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) but in a smaller form factor targeted for integration into ultraslim all-in-one designs. No design housing means reduced cost. And the sleek design allows it to be fully integrated into visual IoT applications that require minimal space with maximum performance, such as hospitality screens and bedside terminals.
Intel® SDM comes in two form factor size options—the Intel® SDM Small (Intel® SDM–S), 60 mm x 100 mm, and Intel® SDM Large (Intel® SDM–L), 175 mm x 100 mm, with a maximum z-height of 20 mm, without enclosure. This allows for new and scalable designs. And, by incorporating high-speed connectivity with a custom I/O receptacle board, the need for external I/O is eliminated. Intel® SDM easily upgrades from basic to extended features that support 8K resolution and beyond, including video data capture.
A display module processes data in a way that creates visual output, or a presentation of information, to a digital screen. Display modules are typically embedded in a larger technology system and are highly integrated and attuned to interact with their environment. A display module will show information via digital signage, desktop displays, all-in-one monitors, large- format interactive flat panel displays, smart projectors, and audiovisual over internet protocol (AVoIP) for streaming experiences.
