EFCO has released a media player with SecuBoot to protect online content by preventing interference from internet hackers or USB devices during startup.
VideoStar100 has been created for the purpose of protecting digital displays and can be used for everything from digital display walls to slot machines.
The VideoStar100 sports the following features:
- AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V1000/R1000 Series Processor
- Integrated AMD Radeon™ Vega Series Graphics
- Supports up to 4 Independent 4K Displays
- Supports SecuBoot (optional) to Protect Your Content
While EFCO has been known to release world-class products, the addition of SecuBoot brings casino floor level security to online casinos, for the protection of casinos and players alike.
How Does It Work?
Using a complete algorithm to cover BIOS Lock, Device Verification, Storage Checksum, and Whisper Talk, EFCO SecuBoot provides a hack-proof solution that secures content and protects data from the point of start-up.
Ira Lo, CTO of EFCO, commented on the new release:
"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.
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."
While the product is targeted more to operators than consumers, online casino players can be assured of world-class security when using sites that boast the use of this technology.
According to the EFCO website, the following can be expected from the VideoStar100:
A high performance, cost-effective 4K media player for the digital signage market, the VideoStar 100 is based on the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000/R1000 Series, and it has integrated SecuBoot.
VideoStar100 can support a maximum of 4 independent displays with an integrated AMD Radeon Vega Series Graphic Processor.

Security is often a concern for players who resort to using off-shore sites due to a lack of casino options available in their country. While being fully cognisant of the risk, enjoyment of the game can be tainted by the chance that personal details may not be 100% secure.
Operators who use this kind of security system will encourage greater spend from clients who can are confident in their confidentiality.
Given the prevalence of hackers and stories of social media accounts being compromised, ensuring the protection of one's details has never been more important.
