InfoComm MEA: ONELAN launches 4K media players16 October 2014
ONELAN is launching its new 4K media players at InfoComm MEA in Dubai. The new players are multi-zone players that can support mixed screen orientations making them suitable for feature videowalls and retail applications.
Sales and marketing director Hugh Coghill-Smith described them as ‘players and entry-level videowall controllers’, adding: “We’re not really focusing on single-screen 4K [with these players]; our main focus is videowalls.”
On the stand, ONELAN demonstrated a player delivering 4K content across four HD screens. Alternatively, a single player can deliver 720p content to nine displays.
The players support IP streaming of 4K Ultra HD video, MPEG and audio streams and can also serve video streams from local storage. Other features include Wi-Fi, touch options and zone transparency. They are powered by 4th Generation Intel Core processors and HD 5000 graphics. Native 4K content can be played in H.264 at 30/60 fps and up to 16 HD video zones can be supported. Fanless solid state options are also available. As with all ONELAN products, the 4K players are Linux based and highly reliable, making them suitable for 24/7 applications.
