The Intel NUC group recently returned from the InfoComm 2021 conference in Orlando, Fla., their first in-person event in nearly 2 years.

The by-invitation NDA space featured 5 demos and a “petting zoo” that included all of the current Intel NUC products — plus a few new unreleased products coming in Q1:22.

The demos included customer interactive kiosks from Symtron featuring the Intel NUC Compute Element and NUC Rugged Board Element. These showed viewers how Symtron’s NUC-based kiosks meet a variety of market needs while keeping both costs and power requirements low.

SimplyNUC shared an OPS unit driven by an Intel NUC Compute Element and attached to an Avacor 55-inch display. It’s capable of running Zoom and Teams video conferences.

The Intel Unite team shared the space with the Intel NUC 11 Element  plus NUC Pro Chassis Element, driving the signage and collaboration demo.

The Intel NUC 11 Pro “Tiger Canyon” impressed attendees by remaining impossibly small while adding new capabilities. It showed the power of the 4x4 by having four 4K screens — two connected via HDMI and two via USB-C — displaying unique content on each screen, all from the Intel NUC’s tiny but powerful form factor. Here’s a look:

The final demo was a multiple Intel product solution from Cloud Constable. It’s an AI-powered virtual assistant used to assist the reopening of a military museum in Ontario, Canada. Based on an Intel NUC 9 Pro Mini PC, the solution also uses Intel RealSense depth cameras and Intel’s distribution of the OpenVINO toolkit. This solution could be used in other environments where customers may need an interactive virtual assistant to respond some of their questions.

While things looked a little different this year, the team was still able to meet with more than 125 partners and gather leads through scheduled, by-invitation tours of the demo space.
