IAdea SMIL Player
The Taiwanese digital signage hardware manufacturer IAdea was founded in 2000. In 2008, they were the first company which produced SMIL-based media players on a large scale for the digital signage market.
The smallest player (MBR-1100) is the size of a cigarettes box and has an HDMI plug. This allows it to be used directly on a screen without cables.
The devices of the XMP series have a metal housing and are therefore more robust. For example, the XMP-6250 or the XMP-6400, which also has an HDMI input. Ultra HD video (4K) can be played by the XMP-7300. This player also supports IAdea’s Anytiles ™ technology, which allows you to create large LED walls with 18,000 x 4,000 pixels total resolution.
Furthermore, IAdea also offers various so-called “Smart Signboards” with integrated touchscreen. These are available in screen from 10” to 21”.

The devices have no moving parts such as fans or hard drives and use efficient ARM processors. Consequently, they are particularly low maintenance and energy efficient. For example, the MBR-1100 consumes less than 10 watts at full load.
Each device has a several interfaces: e.g. Ethernet, WiFi, HDMI, multiple USB ports as well as a battery-backed real-time clock, and at least 8 GB of eMMC flash memory. The memory can be expanded via MicroSD card.
