24th March, 2011 - Digital signage and retail media specialist Digital View has launched its own brand of 2GB & 8GB compact flash memory cards - especially optimized for use in their ViewStream digital media players and VideoFlyer digital signage display products.

Compact flash ‘solid state’ memory cards are used to store high quality video content in many digital signage media players. Solid state memory offers higher reliability and longer lifetime than traditional hard disk drive or DVD-based systems (which have to spin the disks, thereby requiring additional power and control) and higher quality long term performance than tape-based systems (which wear out over time).

Digital View has long advocated the reliability benefits of Compact Flash Memory and its ViewStream media players and its VideoFlyer all-in-one signage displays have been built around solid state principles since the beginning.  With a 3 year standard warranty on all their media electronics and over 150,000 digital signage systems sold, quality and reliability are a central and essential focus for the company.

The past few years has seen a proliferation in compact flash memory suppliers and whilst this has brought great cost benefits, the range in quality and performance between these different cards has left customers with something of a selection lottery.

“They may all look the same - but we have found huge differences between different brands of cards and even different production runs of the same brand of cards,” explains James Henry, CEO of Digital View, “This growing incompatibility could leave clients with significant field-issues and reduce the overall reliability of their product.  These Digital View flash cards however come with our guarantee, not only fully tested to run with all of our digital signage product, but also with performance between flash card and media player optimized for long term quality and reliability.”

Digital View’s Compact Flash Cards are compatible with their; ViewStream 300 & 500 interactive, networkable and HD solid state media players; and their 10”, 15” and 21” VideoFlyer series of all-in-one LCD display and media player combinations.  Designed for retail, digital merchandising and digital signage applications, these solid state products are supplied with free digital signage software for compact flash card programming, scheduling and playlist control.
