VIA Technologies today announced the VIA ARTiGO A1250 slim system, featuring a 1.0GHz VIA QuadCore processor and the latest VIA VX11H media system processor (MSP), in chassis the size of a paperback novel.
The ultra-compact VIA ARTiGO A1250 has been designed for applications in the home or office, including home server, home automation, hotel management, media streaming, digital signage and surveillance as well as medical and healthcare applications.
It leverages the VIA VX11H MSP to deliver 3D stereoscopic and HD display support in a low power envelope, with a typical power consumption of a mere 32W TDP. The VIA ARTiGO A1200 can fit into any environment, whether it is behind a monitor or on the wall with a 10 x 10 cm VESA mount or placed alongside other home media devices.
The VIA ARTiGO A1250 is measuring a mere 17.7cm x 12.5cm x 3.0cm (W X D X H), 10% smaller than the VIA ARTiGO A1150 series. A 1.0GHz VIA QuadCore E-Series processor is combined with the integrated all-in-one VIA VX11H MSP which features the integrated VIA Chromotion 5.0 video processor with DX11 support and 3D stereoscopic display. The VIA ARTiGO A1250 supports decoding of H.264, MPEG-2, VC-1, and WMV9 for smooth playback of demanding multimedia titles at resolutions up to 1080p without incurring a heavy CPU load.
The dual-sided I/O coastline interface includes one HDMI and one VGA display port, one GigaLAN Ethernet port, two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, audio jacks (Line-in/out and mic-in) and 12V DC-in power.
