Giada Showcases SDM Solutions at Intel® SDM Circle Conference
27th December 2018, Giada, a reference design partner of Intel® SDM (Intel® Smart Display Module), demonstrated its SDM solutions, including SDM-S (Z8350) and SDM-L (7300U), at the Intel® SDM Circle Conference held in Bangkok, Thailand, on December 13th, which gathered dozens of SDM manufacturers and more than 30 SI (System Integrator) from Thailand and the South East Asian region. During the conference, Giada premiered a 10.1-inch interactive All-in-One, powered by the SDM-S (Z8358), which is customized for the visual retail industry.
About Intel® SDM
Like the Intel® OPS (Open Pluggable Specification) which Intel introduced in 2010, Intel has released the SDM specification to help bring standardization to the highly fragmented integrated media player market. As more and more SoC (System-on-Chip) based digital signage displays come into the market, media player manufacturers need to provide display manufactures with total solutions based on the X86 architecture before screen delivery. Intel is introducing the SDM specification, which eliminates the housing and offers high-speed PCIe connectivity. The SDM specification and reference design, which can be easily integrated into screens to become AIO solutions, will help screen manufacturers provide more customized screens better focused on the requirements of vertical markets.
Giada, as a reference design partner of Intel® SDM, has launched its Intel® SDM-Small module (Giada SDM-Z8350) in Q3, 2017 and released the world’s first Intel® SDM-Large module (Giada SDM-7300U) in Q1, 2018. Giada had its SDM modules tested during the SDM Plugfest organized by Intel in Taipei on May 17th, 2018. The two modules stood the mechanical and functional tests of Intel and panel vendors and performed well.

Wide Applications of Giada SDM Products
Giada SDM products have wide applications in digital signage, including:
Firstly, tier I brand display manufactures can integrate Giada SDM modules into general AIO displays and put them on the market in large quantities in short time;
Secondly, industry display suppliers can cooperate with Giada to customize AIO displays to empower multiple vertical markets such as retail, education, medical, transportation and more;
Thirdly, SI can provide integrated solutions for vertical industry applications by deep cooperation with Giada;
Giada has started cooperation with some brand display manufactures, industry display suppliers and regional SI on solutions based on SDM products and many of these solutions will be on the market in 2019.
The 10.1-inch interactive SoC (System on Chip) panel, which Giada displayed during the Intel® SDM Circle conference, is customized for visual retail, smart catering, and health-care markets. The ultra-thin panel, adopting the Giada SDM-Z8350, is built for long-time operation. The compact panel was created as a fanless design, which helps it reduce power consumption, space, and costs. Several SI partners have already applied this panel as a POS (point-of-sale) solution and in smart shelf solutions in the catering and retail industry.
“Smart Signage” Ecosystem connected by GDSM
The release of Giada SDM products and the consequent integration it brings to industry display suppliers will make a significant contribution to Giada’s Smart Signage Strategy base on the GDSM (Giada Digital Signage Management system). GDSM will come on the market in China and South East Asia in 2019. According to the Smart Signage Strategy, Giada will strive to provide end-to-end digital signage solutions for vertical industries in regional markets by cooperating with aggregators and ISV’s (Independent Software Vendors) focused on AI (Artificial Intelligence) development. Giada is cooperating with several AI partners to develop digital signage solutions can identify customers through facial recognition technology and display an advertisement that suits their personal preferences based on data collection.
Giada will build a solution combining an x86 hardware platform and VPU (vision processing unit) and Intel® OpenVINO™ Toolkit that brings vision and AI to edge computing. This solution can further improve the performance of AI applications and enable digital signage to be intelligent by adding fundamental functions to the media players.
