SpinetiX offers signage alternative29 January 2010
Swiss digital signage hardware manufacturer SpinetiX is showcasing its HMP100 Hyper Media Player in a variety of digital signage configurations.
According to the company, the SpinetiX HMP100 Hyper Media Player offers a cost-effective, dedicated and standalone alternative to traditional PC-based distributed video to deliver content.
SpinetiX says that the HMP100 uses open software standards that meet the growing demand for affordable and targeted messaging. Based on the SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) platform, the HMP100 can mix streaming video, encoded video or images and audio file formats with other dynamic information such as RSS or XML.
The HMP100 is offered with SpinetiX’s Hyper Media Director (HMD) software which allows simple content creation, management and scheduling. The latest version of the software includes interactivity via mouse or touchscreen devices as well as built in support for synchronised video wall creation.
This, says SpinetiX, allows users to easily generate presentations in any configuration, shape or aspect ratio without adding expensive and specialised hardware. Because the HMP100 uses open software standards, it enables users to provide custom applications such as in hotels or transport directories. A number of such projects have already been rolled out across Europe, according to SpinetiX.
As part of the InfoComm Education programme, Serge Konter, marketing manager at SpinetiX is presenting ‘Digital Signage – an exploration of embedded systems versus PC-based solutions for use in digital signage networks’ which is taking place on Thursday 4 February.
