DENON PROFESSIONAL OFFERS NEW TOP-OF-THE-LINE
DN-V760 NETWORK AUDIO/VISUAL PLAYER
— With its 40 GB hard drive, the DN-V760
joins the Compact Flash DN-V750 Network Audio/Visual Player,
providing system integrators and contractors a total digital signage
INFOCOMM, LAS VEGAS, NV, June 8, 2005 —
D&M Professional, the parent company of Denon Professional, introduces
its flagship DN-V760 Network Audio/Visual Player. The new DN-V760 joins
Denon’s DN-V750 in providing system integrators and contractors
with a complete visual messaging solution. Designed to meet the increasing
demand for digital signage multimedia solutions for theme parks, museums,
kiosks, shopping malls and other commercial applications where high-quality,
high-reliability, customized video playback is desired, the DN-V760
offers extensive playback capabilities through its built-in 40 GB hard
drive and its expanded range of compatible formats. In addition to its
brand new, user-friendly, embedded web interface, for off-site playback
scheduling and maintenance, the DN-V760’s network capabilities
make it one of the easiest signage appliances to integrate into a visual
messaging installation. The DN-V760 also features an embedded CIFS (common
internet file sharing) server that provides the user true drag-and-drop
content uploads, and an RS-232 port for integrated onsite system control.
The new DN-V760 was developed based on direct feedback from leading
contractors and visual messaging consultants in the field and reflects
Denon Professional’s ongoing commitment to providing the video
contracting/fixed installation industry with leading-edge products.
The DN-V760 Network Audio/Visual Player is a compact 8.6"
W (220 mm) x 1.7" H (44 mm) x 10.6" D (270 mm) unit that plays
MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 video files at bit-rates that surpass DVD-quality.
Still pictures can be easily uploaded for signage or presentation. For
audio, the DN-V760 offers MPEG-1 (Audio Layer II, III) audio playback,
and can even play uncompressed 16-bit PCM WAV files at 44.1 kHz or 48
kHz. The DN-V760 features a 40 GB internal hard drive (expandable to
137 GB) which can store up to eight hours of DVD-quality video. Lower
bit-rates can be used to further extend video playtime. Alternatively,
thousands of photographs or graphics (.MPI, .JPG) and hours of CD-quality
audio, or any combination thereof can be stored, deleted or updated.
Files for multiple presentations can be stored, and “playlist
files” can direct the DN-V760 what to play and when to play it
from onsite within the same building or remotely across the country.
Media Transfer has never been easier than with the DN-V760.
The user is able to upload MPEG video, still pictures, WAV and other
media directly from a computer via the DN-V760’s built-in CIFS
server. Plus, the embedded web-based browser application streamlines
the scheduling of playlists and user settings. An option is provided
for automatically generating a log file containing a list of which content
was played and when.
The DN-V760 offers contractors a wide range of control
options. In addition to easy-to-use front-panel controls and onscreen
display, customized control surfaces can be created using the parallel
connection. A 15-pin D-sub connector offers switch-closure control of
major functions for kiosk applications, while a 9-pin RS-232C serial
port allows standardized serial control. Built-in Ethernet support provides
easy integration into an IP-based network. The DN-V760 automatically
assigns itself an IP address that does not conflict with the connecting
computer or other devices on the network.
A networked DN-V760 couldn’t be easier to set up.
The first time a unit is booted, it will automatically join the network.
Using the standard file system on a Windows PC or a Macintosh®,
all connected DN-V760 units appear as networked hard drives to the computer.
Units can be renamed, and opened into a standard web browser for familiar
navigation and instant file management. With the browser, the user can
quickly create, modify, play and store playlists to the internal hard
drive. Content can also be previewed on the connected display using
the browser. When the DN-V760 is connected to a network with internet
access, it will automatically update its internal clock to the current
date and time.
The DN-V750 Network Audio Visual Player offers many of
the same features as the DN-V760 but employs a PCM-CIA card slot instead
of an internal hard drive. Any standard PCM-CIA hard drive (or other
storage device) can be used for virtually unlimited removable storage.
