DIGITAL VIEW OFFERS WI-FI HD MEDIA PLAYER FOR WIRELESS DIGITAL SIGNAGE
Morgan Hill, CA, 22 Sep 2010 - Digital View, the media player company, has released a Wi-Fi enabled version of its low cost, compact and ultra-reliable ViewStream 520 solid state HD media player.
The ViewStream VSW-520 is designed to be used in networked high definition digital signage. A digital video and digital audio player offering crystal clear 1080p video playback, ‘bullet proof’ reliability and full support for network and internet playlist scheduling.
‘The ViewStream 520 platform is ideal for advertising and promotional digital signage networks. Adding Wi-Fi connectivity makes installation easier and offers enhanced flexibility on location and positioning’, comments Neil Wood, President of Digital View North America. ‘The Wi-Fi module is built in - meaning no additional cabling - and content and media can be easily controlled either through a local area network or using our free digital signage software - DV Studio’.
Digital View made its name in the digital signage market with its solid state ViewStream media players. The ‘steel backbone’ of many digital out-of-home networks, these linux-based players run off internal flash memory, have no fans or mechanical moving parts and offer 100,000 hours of trouble-free playback.
For large format LCD displays that support RS-232, the ViewStream 520 is ready with a flexible command set that allows for the remote control of all on screen menu functions (including power on/off and volume control) and the monitoring of screen performance. The VSW-520 can also itself be controlled by RS-232, enabling connectivity within AMX and Crestron type environments.
To ensure the broadest range of displays support - the ViewStream VSW-520 provides multiple video outputs including HDMI, Component and VGA as well as DVI using an adaptor cable. Resolution is fully compatible for all standard displays up to and including 1920x1080 Full HD.
For simple network control Digital View’s free DV Studio utility can be used to prepare playlists and schedules while for networks with more players a SaaS based content management system such as Delivering Digital’s BEN is more suitable.
