The Gefen EXT-HD-DSWFPN Digital Signage Player with Wi-Fi Plus is the industry's first media appliance to combine the power of HTML5 with the interoperability of SMIL. The EXT-HD-DSWFPN 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, as well as supporting live video input and select* RS-232 ON/OFF commands.

The all-metal enclosure features a passive cooling system. The Digital Signage Player 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 product recover and resume playback after power and network disruptions.

The included software allows 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-DSWFPN 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. Use the included composite input cable and 232 dongle then connect the 12V DC power supply to the unit and connect the AC power cord to an available electrical outlet.
