Gefen Introduces New Digital Signage Media Player Offering Cost-Effective Content Management for Hi-Def Video

Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced the release of its new HD Digital Signage Media Player (EXT-HD-DSMP). Marketed at a compelling retail price, this new media player offers fundamental content playback with support for 1080p full HD. It supplies outputs for HDMI, component, composite and s-video connectivity with audio.

Calendar-based scheduling using Gefen’s new Content Management Software (CMS) is accessible through any network to manage all digital signage content from any computer on the network. Based on widely used file transfer protocols (FTP), content can be pushed to the HD Digital Signage Media Player or pulled based on automated calendar scheduling. Like all Gefen digital signage solutions, software is included for the player.

Built-in feedback for key functions such as playback, system status and uploaded content makes this HD Digital Signage Media Player easy to manage and simple to operate. An intuitive directory and file structure can be managed through any text-based editing program for added convenience.

Two USB 2.0 ports are provided for storage on a flash drive or external hard drive. The player ships with one USB flash drive included so it is ready to use out of the box.

Integrated mounting brackets and a small footprint allow the HD Digital Signage Media Player to be mounted discreetly behind any connected display.
