Stunning 4K Resolution and Triple Display

The IMBA-Q471 is equipped with Intel® UHD Graphics to display videos and images in stunning 4K resolutions. Among its three independent display ports (VGA+HDMI™+DP), the HDMI™ and DisplayPort can both support up to 4K high resolution. The enhanced visual quality responses the high precision demand of users.

Leading Connectivity


With triple LAN configuration, the IMBA-Q471 is capable of connecting various devices such as sensors, multiple cameras, or other hardware

Lower CPU Workload

High TCP & UDP Throughput

Triple Intel® 2.5G Ethernet

The IMBA-Q471 is equipped with triple Intel 2.5GbE controllers, which are ready for the latest-performance router. With triple 2.5GbE ports owning the benefits of low-latency, high-throughput and cost-effective, the IMBA-Q471 can meet the bandwidth-intensive requirements such as large file transfers and high resolution video streaming, which is ideal for machine vision and AI edge computing applications.

Leading Connectivity

Pure Speed USB 3.2 10 Gb/s

With twice of the bandwidth compared to its previous generation, and backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 3.0, the much improved USB 3.2 protocol USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.

Multiple Expansion Slots for Increased Functionality
