“We’re delighted that the Via ALTA DS 2 meets the exacting performance and compatibility requirements for Capital Networks certification,” said Richard Brown, vice president of international marketing, Via Technologies Inc. “The combination of the Via ALTA DS 2 and Audience for Android provides an ultra-reliable solution for mission-critical dual-output applications at a fraction of the cost of typical dual-output PCs, without sacrificing performance.”

“Commercial grade media players that run Google’s Android operating system are rare, but incredibly important to digital signage network operators who demand high reliability, management tools and predictable supply chains,” said Jim Vair, vice president of business development at Capital Networks. “The Via ALTA DS distinguishes itself from this elite group with its ability to deliver two distinct, independent video outputs from one affordable, solid state player.”
