Intel developed the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) to simplify the device installation, usage, maintenance and upgrade of digital signage infrastructure. This open standard comprises electrical, mechanical and thermal specifications for media player boards and display boards connected together via a 80-pin JAE connector that supports commonly used interfaces such as DisplayPort and USB, among others. The overall objective is to enable digital signage manufacturers to deploy interchangeable systems faster and in higher volumes, while lowering the costs for deployment and implementation.
