— The DN-V755 comes with built-in configuration and control software, is remotely accessible via the web, has an internal 40 GB hard drive and provides system integrators, contractors, and end-users the industry’s easiest digital signage/messaging solution —


NSCA EXPO, LAS VEGAS, NV, March 16, 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.

Features include:
• All software built-in, and accessible over the network from any web-enabled computer
• Automatic IP search (DHCP, APIPA)
