NEC launches new MediaPlayer powered by Raspberry Pi

NEC Display Solutions Europe has unveiled its latest MediaPlayer for its digital signage solution

The MediaPlayer represents an intuitive plug and play digital signage solution that’s easy to install and customise. With NEC´s MediaPlayer, the latest, immersive real-time visual experiences are now faster and easier to set up, showing target audiences dynamic, up-to-date information and advertising.

This modular SoC MediaPlayer solution can simply be integrated inside any compatible NEC display offering the Raspberry Pi slot. It enables the smooth, remote operation of setups with individual as well as multiple screens supported by browser-based playlist and content distribution as well centralised device management. Organisations can choose various media formats and web content via the browser for all kinds of demands.

The NEC MediaPlayer’s modular nature means it’s ready for the future. Nils Karsten, strategic alliance manager at NEC Display Solutions Europe, said: “A key, unique feature of our new MediaPlayer is its ability to operate as a hub for partner companies to allow the user a smooth installation of the supported CMS systems – directly from our MediaPlayer. As requirements and markets change, we can even extend its functionality and enhance performance. This can be done without the need to alter the base infrastructure of the signage solution.”
