The Gefen EXT-HD-DSWFN Digital Signage Player with Wi-Fi is the industry's first media appliance to combine the power of HTML5 with the interoperability of SMIL. The EXT-HD-DSWFN Digital Signage Player is a LAN-based product, which supports 1080p Full HD, text tickers, 2-channel L/R audio and calendar scheduling with over ten preloaded templates to choose from.

The all-metal enclosure features a passive cooling system. The Gefen EXT-HD-DSWFN comes with 4 GB of built-in flash memory and the securable compact flash card slot allows the addition of up to 16 GB of memory if needed (replacing the internal storage). Two integrated USB 2.0 ports provide connection to a keyboard and USB storage devices. Support for over 20 different media formats provides a wide selection for content creation. A watchdog timer lets the EXT-HD-DSWFN recover and resume playback after power and network disruptions.

The included software will allow users to upload video playback schedules and playlists for easy content management. Additionally, software developers can utilize W3C SMIL (Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language) syntax which ensures compatibility across multiple Digital Signage platforms. The included software features over ten different multi-zoned templates and "live feed" widgets to fit your specific Digital Signage needs.

How It Works

The EXT-HD-DSWFN Digital Signage Player with Wi-Fi connects to a display using analog (Composite / Component / VGA) or an HDMI cable. There are two options for connecting to the network; Connect an Ethernet cable to the network or connect using Wi-Fi. Then connect a keyboard and peripherals to the USB ports to configure the unit. Use the included Composite A/V cables to connect the product to the 3.5 mm connector. Connect the 12V DC power supply to the unit and connect the AC power cord to an available electrical outlet.
