The system memory included with the system is DDR-2 800MHz Long-Dimm 2x 1GB. The player has an external industrial power adaptor. The player has an embedded roadmap of 5 years, with an additional warranty of 1 year or more. 1U and 2U units are available for the Q1000. This player can play Scala 5, with full HD 1080p (1920×1080). Plays flash 3D in combination with tickerline. Mdina has models with Nvidia and ATI Graphic cards.
‘Scala is very happy to work with Mdina Media’s players for the training room in Maastricht,’ said Damon Crowhurst, Senior Director, EMEA at Scala. ‘By utilizing the Mdina machines during training, our trainees can experience the quality of the players themselves and Scala now provides quality players of the same configuration for all trainees.’
