Presenting the AiCU on the new AOPEN Digital Engine DE3450

Launching first with the Digital Engine® DE3450, the AiCU complements the ultra-slim cost-effective commercial media player with industrial grade power that is easy to manage and deploy.

The latest AOPEN Digital Engine® DE3450 is powered by Intel® Core™ CPU, with HDMI 2.0. It runs Ultra HD (4K2K @ 60hz) video for realistic visuals and immersive digital experience. The DE3450 dual-screen output also supports HEVC/H.265 (10 bit) and VP9 Video playback specifications.

Designed with an ultra-slim form factor, the AOPEN DE3450 is quiet and computationally efficient. Its Watchdog Timer detects and recovers from any malfunctions. The shock-proof DE3450 effectively resists pollution and other environmental stresses - offering security, reliability, and durability.

“Over its 20-plus years, AOPEN has refined electric and mechanical technology, working closely with partners and customers to develop key features and support ease-of-use.
