EFCO, a world-class supplier of industrial computers and gaming and EMS solutions, today announced VideoStar100, the first media player integrated with SecuBoot™ to provide the most advanced security available for digital displays. Equipped with an AMD industrial-grade Ryzen™ Embedded V1000/R1000 APU, VideoStar100 provides the performance to support three (R1000) or four independent 4k displays and can be used for applications ranging from slot machines to digital display walls, especially for those displays used to introduce the games.
We wanted to give our customers the most secure, yet cost-effective, solution to play 4K digital display content. Because VideoStar100 is equipped with SecuBoot™, this media player is uniquely able to provide the same level of security for your content as is required on today’s casino gaming floors,” Ira Lo, CTO for EFCO commented. “We are the first company to bring this level of security to a media player, and it also provides high performance applications with support for up to four independent 4k displays.
Security is a priority for VideoStar100 and the integrated SecuBoot™ ensures that a trusted game environment is operating by preventing malicious applications. This prevents “unauthorized” programs or viruses from USB devices or from Internet hackers to change the operating system during the system start-up process. EFCO SecureBoot™ provides a complete algorithm to cover BIOS Lock, Device Verification, Storage Checksum, and Whisper Talk, which meets country and/ or regional regulations. By including this extra level of security, SecuBoot™ also aids in the ability to meet the requirements of GLI or BMM.
