LONDON — Digital View has added a high-definition 1080p/60 network media player to its solid-state digital signage media player family. The Remote Player 500 is a digital video and digital audio player designed for “bullet-proof” reliability, with full support for playlist scheduling and cost-effective remote networking. Running off compact flash memory, the Linux-based player supports all major HD video compression formats (MPEG4, WMV & AVI) and professional digital audio.
Digital View made its name in the digital signage market selling more than 10,000 of its solid state Remote Player 300 boxes, the “steel backbone” of many digital out-of-home networks including CBS Outdoor’s Digital Escalator Posters in the London Underground, the Life Channel’s Community Network, Simply Media’s Salon Network and Pharmacy Channel’s Pharmacy TV. The new Remote Player 500 offers the same host of features specifically targeted to digital out-of-home, digital menu board, interactive merchandising and digital advertising and billboard applications.
The Remote Player 500 supports crystal-clear video playback with full playlist scheduling and control. The media players synchronize together to enable multi-screen implementations; it offers local interactivity options (such as button, touchscreen and motion sensor interfaces) and its Linux operating system ensures trouble-free stability. The remote networking support offers full on-line playlist control and field compliance reporting through a cost effective solution provided through partner organization Delivering Digital.
