WAND Corporation, a leading provider of restaurant technology, has introduced the new WAND Mini, a small form-factor media player powered by Intel NUC Technology, to support its line of digital signage solutions.
"We're very excited to support WAND Digital with the new WAND Mini," says Chad Hirman, director of product management at WAND. "The Next Unit of Computing (NUC) technology and ultra-compact nature of the device provide an excellent platform for our restaurant partners to support the rich, high-impact graphics and animation of our digital signage solutions."
The Mini offers big performance in a small size, thanks to a solid technology foundation featuring the advanced Intel Core i3 processor. Its shape and power make it an ideal driver for digital signage and kiosks. Not only does the WAND Mini cost less, but it also supports a wider range of applications than previous WAND media players.
"At just 4" x 4" and under 2.5 pounds, the WAND Mini is incredibly compact and offers great flexibility for a more seamless installation process; no baskets or risers needed," Hirman concludes. The NUC solution is fanless, which minimizes moving parts in the unit for increased reliability. The WAND Mini is shipping today.
