Minicom Digital Signage, the leader in “last mile” player-to-screen connectivity platforms for the Digital Signage marketplace, and AOpen America are pleased to announce a partnership in the field of Digital Signage Players using video distribution and extension over CAT5 cable.
In the past months successful experiments have taken place to combine Minicom Digital Signage’s DS Vision® 3000 product with AOpen America’s Digital Engine and Media Servers. The distribution of high definition signals over long distances between player and display can be difficult. Sometimes, while it may seem more economical to place a small form factor player behind a screen, the placing of players in accessible, environmentally controlled and secure environments will actually save you money over the life of your network.
”AOpen America is thrilled to find a partner in Minicom Digital Signage who provides a plug and play solution to transfer high quality HD signals more than 200 meters using simple CAT5 cable. This way, our players can be located in a controlled room in our DS Engine Station, where they are accessible, secured and protected.” says Dale Tsai, President at AOpen America.
