Remote Player 500 - network high definition media player

Digital View, the digital signage and retail media specialist, 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.

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 & 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, touch screen 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 organisation Delivering Digital.
