The new KDS Digital Signage Player of the German manufacturer of special displays Kinoton is a budget player for digital displays. The compact all-in-one solution which combines hardware and software facilitates the management and scheduled playback of electronic advertising content. This makes the KDS Player the perfect Digital Signage solution, especially for small and medium companies.
The KDS Digital Signage Player can be installed by simple plug-and-play, without lengthy system integration. The easy-to-use KDS software package already installed on the player offers a lot of flexibility in the design and animation of individual Digital Signage messages. In addition to the classic full-screen view, the screen can be divided into various segments displaying different content like videos, commercials, TV broadcasts, news feeds or presentations at the same time. With the variable layout templates included in the KDS software, even first time users that are quite inexperienced in computer graphics can easily import, compile and play back lively and diversified digital messages, like program surveys, flight plans, bus schedules, self-explanatory product presentations with and without audio, or target group orientated Instore TV.
The KDS Digital Signage Player supports all common multimedia contents, making it the perfect content source for Kinoton’s Litefast 360° Displays as well as for any other kind of public display, video projector or desktop display. The presentation cycles of each playlist can be scheduled freely. The individual contents and playlists can be updated over the Internet/LAN at any time, e.g. for short-notice sales promotion. As a professional Digital Signage solution, the KDS Player is designed for stable 24/7 operation. It is equally suitable for stand-alone installations and centrally controlled Digital Signage networks, for example for presenting media content in different branches of a retail business or restaurant chain.
The capabilities of the KDS Digital Signage Player and of the Litefast 360° Displays can be experienced at the Kinoton Technology Center near Munich, Germany and at InfoComm 2010 in Las Vegas (Kinoton/Litefast, booth No. N2646 in the North Hall).
