NEC Display Solutions has launched its latest MediaPlayer for digital signage that comes pre-installed on NEC’s Raspberry Pi Compute Module at no additional cost.
According to NEC, the set up is easy and ready go to out of the box so users can customize digital display boards for retail, digital menus, leisure and corporate communications.
IN a press release, the company calls MediaPlayer an intuitive plug and play solution that allows for immersive, real-time visual experiences for up-to-date information and advertising. It can be integrated inside any compatible NEC display with a Raspberry Pi slot, allowing for the remote operation of setups with individual and multiple screens supported by browser-based playlist and content distribution, as well as centralized device management.
Organizations can choose various media formats and web content via the browser for any use cases, NEC says.
Chris Feldman, product manager, said in a statement that a key feature is the ability to operate as a hub for partner companies to allow the user a smooth installation of the supported CMS systems directly from the MediaPlayer.
“As requirements and markets change, we can even extend its functionality and enhance performance. This can be done without the need to alter the base infrastructure of the signage solution,” Feldman says.
The software is designed to allow for the further addition of third-party applications and integration with their solutions, said Art Marshall, product line manager at NEC Display Solutions, in a statement. “It perfectly complements our modular SoC and computing philosophy. It’s an out-of-the-box solution that’s built to last and grow alongside our corporate ambition and the constantly evolving needs of our customers. Non-experts as well as experienced installers will benefit from the ease and reliability of our system.”
The NEC MediaPlayer comes pre-installed on the Raspberry Pi CM3+ offered by NEC Display Solutions.
