NETWORK AUDIO VISUAL PLAYER

is remotely accessible via the web, has an internal 40 GB hard drive
and provides system integrators
and contractors a total digital signage/messaging solution —
WINTER NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 19, 2006
— D&M Professional, the parent company of Denon Professional,
announces it is now shipping its flagship DN-V755 Network Audio Visual
Player. The new DN-V755 provides system integrators and contractors
with a complete visual messaging solution and was developed based on
direct feedback from leading end-users and consultants in the field.
The DN-V755 reflects Denon Professional’s ongoing commitment to
providing system integrators and contractors with leading-edge products.
Designed to meet the increasing demand for digital signage
multimedia solutions for theme parks, museums, houses of worship, kiosks,
crisis management centers, retail environments and other commercial
applications where high-quality, highly-reliable, customized video is
desired, the DN-V755 offers extensive playback capabilities through
its built-in 40 GB hard drive and extended range of compatible formats.
In addition to its brand new, user-friendly, embedded web interface
for off-site playback scheduling and maintenance, the DN-V755’s
network capabilities make it one of the easiest signage solutions to
integrate into a visual messaging installation. The DN-V755 also features
true drag-and-drop content uploads and an RS-232 port for integrated
onsite system control.
The DN-V755 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-V755 offers MPEG-1 (Audio Layer II, III) audio playback,
and can even play uncompressed 16-bit PCM WAV files at 32-48 kHz. The
DN-V755 can store hours of DVD-quality video, while using lower bit-rates
can further extend video playtime. Alternatively, thousands of photographs
or graphics (.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-V755
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-V755.
The user is able to upload MPEG video, still pictures, WAV and other
media directly from a computer. 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 — perfect for providing
accountability for advertising partners.
The DN-V755 offers 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. Upon startup, the DN-V755 automatically assigns
itself an IP address that does not conflict with the connecting computer
or other devices on the network.
A networked DN-V755 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-V755 units appear as networked hard drives to the computer.
Units can be renamed, and opened into a standard web browser (Microsoft®
Internet Explorer or Mozilla® Firefox for example) 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-V755 is connected to a network with internet
access, it will automatically update its internal clock to the current
date and time.
