Full Support to 4K Ultra HD in Every Aspect of Specifications

KBox F-210 Series fully supports 4K Ultra HD playback in every specification. The list below specifies its capabilities more than sufficient to perfectly smooth 4K UHD contents.

  • Excellent Computing and Graphics Performance: Powered by socket-based 6th Generation Intel® Core™ / Celeron® S-Series desktop processors (formerly codenamed Skylake), KBox F-210 Series is a performance-optimized box PC with less performance reduction in exchange for lower power draw when compared to its counterparts incorporated with U-Series processors. The integrated Intel® HD Graphics 530 / 510 GPU delivers better graphics performance and faster 4K transcoding capability, enabling a great 4K experience. In addition, it supports the latest DirectX 12, allowing GPU to more effectively run multiple tasks at once.
  • Higher-bandwidth Memory Interface: KBox F-210 Series is equipped with two next-generation DDR4 SO-DIMM memory sockets which deliver more bandwidth-per-clock (up to twice as fast as DDR3) and memory capacity, providing the scaling headroom to enable smooth data-intensive 4K UHD content delivery between the main memory and the processor / storage devices.
  • Higher-speed Video Output Interface: KBox F-210 Series has one DP and two HDMI 2.0 ports located on the rear I/O panel. All of them are capable of 4K video output at a smooth fast 60 frames per second. (The rate of 4K is limited to 20 frames per second in HDMI 1.4.)

Rich Audio Interfaces

Audio is also an important element of a 4K multimedia presentation. Besides DP and HDMI 2.0 ports that can output digital audio signal as well, KBox F-210 Series has

  • a set of stereo Line-out, Line-in and Mic-in jacks to output the system’s audio signals to external speakers / headphones, to receive audio signals from an external audio device, and to capture / record audio signals from an connected microphone respectively, and
  • an S/PDIF connector to carry digital multi-channel surround sound signals to the amplifying receivers of digital high-fidelity audio systems in order to round out the audio features of a multimedia presentation.

Peripheral Integration and Functional Expansion

With full supports to 4K UHD resolution and high-fidelity stereo, KBox F-210 Series is positioned as a performance-oriented platform for infotainment applications, such as digital signage and KIOSK, which may integrate several peripheral devices or additional functions to make the system more useful or convenient to audience passengers / users. They include:

  • two GbE LAN ports to connect the administrators’ devices, Cloud servers or other IP-based devices for remote control / management, real-time data access / backup or other possible IP-based devices;
  • up to two mPCIe expansion slots to enable Wi-Fi / 3G / 4G wireless network as an alternative to or an extension to wired network, or to create Bluetooth connection with audience / passengers / users’ mobile devices; and
  • one RS232/422/485 serial port and six USB ports to connect any possible peripheral applications depending on interface types, for example, barcode / QR code scanner & RFID / NFC reader for fast identification / check-in / check-out, keyboard / signature pad / PIN pad for data input, touch screen to provide friendly interaction experience, printer to print tickets / receipts / coupons, or camera to capture facial images.
