We’ve combined our award winning hi-def media playback technology with the network capability that empowers users to remotely control the displays in a local area network (LAN). Operationally, the MvixDS Kit works via a combination of a DLNA-compliant HD media player (or renderer) and a PC-based control portal. Media files (videos or slideshow images) can be stored on the control point or on the HD Media Player. The signage control portal (a Windows-PC based application) enables scheduling and remotely controlling media playback whereas, the media player decodes and renders it to the display screen (plasma or LCD). The signage control portal works like a remote controller over LAN to monitor / schedule playback in real-time and is capable of managing multiple players (or renderers) simultaneously. MvixDS control portal also allows the user to create playlists and schedule their delivery.
“With its expansive set of features and an extremely low cost, the Mvix DS-100 is a perfect solution for the SMB market,” commented, Mike.
The Mvix media player takes advantage of the cutting-edge video decoding technologies and the high resolution audio specifications to render hi-def Video playback on large LCDs. It offers multiple connectivity options for ease of use with other computing systems and digital displays. MvixDS DS-100 signage solution is capable of 720p video output and supports all popular media format like MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX3.11/4, 5, XviD, WMV9, etc.
With its affordable cost structure, and expansive features, the Mvix DS Kit allows business owners and advertisers to preserve their ROI, and save on the operational and training costs required for high-end signage systems. MvixDS comes without any extra cost of legacy configuration and replacement. “With costs of large screen digital displays at an all time low, businesses of any size can now easily install a complete signage system for a low cost and can advertise their products and services like never before,” said Mike.
MvixUSA also offers marketing services in customizing multimedia content for the digital signage systems that can come pre-loaded in the media renderer. The contents vary from simple slideshows to high-def videos and multimedia presentations.
