multi-head player brings an affordable way to have large-scale visual impact
with the simplicity of a single media player that doubles as a video wall
controller. Supporting 1080P on each digital screen, inspiring video walls are
now in the grasp of aspiring businesses that refuse to settle for ordinary.
LENEXA, Kan. (December 3, 2014) – Keywest Technology has launched a multi-head digital signage player using a powerful Intel® Core™ i7 CPU running on an Ubuntu® open source software platform. The multi-head player supports up to six 1080P channels, which provide a total resolution of 11,520 x 6,480 pixels, giving it the ability to create impressive video walls using thin bezel LCD screens. The player is controlled via the company’s cloud-based digital signage service called Breeze Digital Signage®.
Breaking tradition from the miniature-sized media players that are common today, the multi-head player is housed in a rugged 1.5RU server chassis that is designed for 24/7 operation. It uses an integrated six-port HDMI display card with Mini DisplayPort outputs. The chassis also uses a beefy 400W PSU with two internal cooling fans and a typical front to back flow-thru design for superior heat management.
“Our 6-head digital signage player gives system integrators, interior designers and architects an attractive choice for designing large displays with readily available thin-bezel LCD technology,” commented Keywest Technology’s President Nick Nichols. “The 6-head digital signage player is designed to work with all commercial-grade LCD products, allowing AV designers to implement video walls or menu arrays with only a few components. This is an ideal technology for creating larger-than-life images that are attractive, affordable and reliable.”
