AOPEN Chromebox Mini is Designed for Digital Signage and Kiosks


When most Chromeboxes nowadays are targetted towards consumer market and educational fields, AOPEN designed the smallest enterprise-ready Chromebox for digital signage, corporate, and kiosks. This device is designed to run 24/7 in tough conditions and can handle shocks and vibrations without any problem. The Rockchip RK3288 powered Chromebox Mini may perform sluggishly if used as a mini PC, but this should not be an issue for digital signage or kiosks.

AOPEN Chromebox Mini Rear I/O

The Chromebox mini supports full-HD playback. The video player is capable of delivering content at 1920 x 1080 pixels without any stuttering or tearing. As this product is primarily focused on digital signage and kiosks, a high-resolution output is indeed an important feature to have. It has a fanless and ventless dustproof design allowing it to operate in harsh outdoor conditions without any worry about dust. The ribs on the body help its passive cooling.

The fanless design approach and usage of EMMC instead of HDD ensures the ability to handle shocks and vibrations with ease. Because the device lacks any moving part, it is perfect for, for example, moving vehicles: to show transportation information in busses, or to display signage on cruise ships. The Chromebox Mini also features an extended power switch. That means, even if the device is fixed inside a kiosk or behind the ceiling, the power button can be operated from a small distance.
