The Extron GSS 100 Graphic Still Store is a unique, compact still store designed to play back high resolution company logos, digital photos, presentation slides, and other text or graphic images, as part of an AV presentation. The GSS 100 is useful for displaying text or graphics between presentation sessions, or for continuous slide show playback in kiosks or store signage. The GSS 100 replaces the need for a dedicated graphics PC in event staging, conference rooms and boardrooms, houses of worship, digital signage, and similar applications.

The GSS 100 accommodates BMP or JPEG format graphics up to SXGA+ (1400x1050) and HDTV 1080p/60. Graphics files are easily uploaded from a PC via the GSS 100's high-speed Ethernet port. Ethernet control allows the GSS 100 to be managed and controlled locally or remotely, with multiple-level password protection, ensuring that only authorized images are displayed. With 16 MB of internal image storage, the GSS 100 accommodates six XGA resolution (1024x768) BMP graphics files, or 100 or more XGA resolution JPEG images at typical rates of compression. Stored images may be played back selectively or sequentially in a slide show presentation. Transition effects include cut and variable-rate dissolves, with user-programmable slide display and transition intervals.

The GSS 100 is designed for a wide range of image display needs. For dynamic digital signage, ideal for eye-catching displays in high-traffic retail locations, BMP files at XGA resolution can be loaded and displayed in as little as 3 seconds between images. For applications using a greater number of JPEG files, such as meeting agendas, daily schedules, electronic menus and billboards, and environmental art, XGA resolution files are loaded and displayed in 5 seconds or less.

A special RGB pass-through enables easy installation between the output of a source or switcher and the display device, without the need for separate RGB switching. For effortless, automated operation, the GSS 100 automatically engages its output whenever the pass-through input is interrupted, such as during the exchange of laptops in a presentation. The output resolution is selectable, up to UXGA, to match the native resolution of the display device. The GSS 100 also provides the appropriate sync format to match the display monitor or projector.
