Neuer SMIL Digital Signage Player für Displays im Portraitmodus

No more need to convert the videos

Kiel, April 29, 2013 - Björn Christiansen of IAdea Corp. SMIL Digital Signage Player Germany said in the course of the presentation of the new XMP-2300: "We have heard requests from many networks for a digital signage player that is capable of playing content in portrait mode without conversion. We are now bringing just such a player to market with the XMP-2300."

The XMP-2300 plays videos in landscape mode when mounted horizontally and videos in portrait mode when mounted vertically.

To capture viewers' attention, digital signage increasingly uses dynamically generated content. The XMP-2200/2300 is optimized to display dynamic content loaded from the Internet, be it RSS feeds, news, weather, financial reports, sports scores or even social network updates. The same technology allows live data to be retrieved from a database to display, for example, transit arrival and departure times, current service wait times, or corporate management information. The integrated 3-D acceleration hardware ensures visually appealing display in the digital signage sector, including the latest animation and transition effects as used in slideshows, text tickers, etc. etc. In addition, the video material is hardware decoded for pristine visual quality.

As a result of years of experience with large digital signage networks, the XMP-2200/2300 is designed primarily for robustness. The hardware operates without a fan, while the extremely sturdy metal housing guarantees perfect protection and optimal heat dissipation. The system memory uses 4GB of dedicated, shock-proof solid-state memory that can hold several hours of multimedia content without the risk of crashing. And if a failure does occur, a hardware watchdog timer ensures that the system can be restored without human intervention.

Thanks to open W3C HTML5 and SMIL standards, the XMP-2200/2300 works seamlessly with much of the leading digital signage management software and SaaS services.
