Altinex, a leading manufacturer of Signal Management Solutions®, is pleased to announce the new VP500-103 High Resolution Media Player. The ideal tool for meeting rooms, lecture halls, and similar presentation environments, the VP500-103 is an HD media player that supports a wide variety of video, audio and still image formats. Offering selectable NTSC/PAL or wide screen HD TV resolutions for viewing material on the display, the VP500-103 includes a 500 MB high reliability USB flash drive for storing content.
The new VP500-103 HD Media Player is design to provide a customized media experience for any AV installation. It can be used to play corporate introductory videos, display a company logo, or provide playback of, as an example, a short video user tutorial. With the included USB drive, preparing content for a presentation is as easy as copying the material from one’s computer to the flash drive and re-attaching it to the VP500-103.
The VP500-103 can also accommodate SD, SDHC, and MMC memory cards. The VP500-103 supports a variety of file formats including MPEG1 for 480p or 720p video playback as well as MPEG2 for 1080i or 1080p video content. Additionally, the unit offers support for multiple still image formats, including JPG, BMP, PNG, and GIF—making it quick and easy to incorporate one’s company or school logo for display purposes. In addition to video content, the VP500-103 can also play audio files, including MPR, WMA, and WAV file formats.
The new Altinex VP500-103 is the ideal tool for ‘idle image’ playback—ensuring meeting attendees or students never see the all-too-common No Signal display across a blank screen. Upon power up, the VP500-103 player automatically plays a default track and continuously loops that track until a new track selection is made using the included handheld remote control. The default track loops seamlessly from the end to the beginning without any artifacts in between. This track can be a fixed image (such as a company logo) that is continuously displayed or a video file that plays in a loop. And with its HDMI® video output, the VP500-103 provides stunning picture and sound quality over a single cable.
The VP500-103’s included remote control provides the ability to configure a default track, adjust screen resolution, and select additional functions. The remote control is also used to set the AV output type to NTSC or PAL for use with the AV output cable that feeds a 3.5 mm AV output signal to 3 RCA connectors for video and L/R stereo audio. Additionally, the included 3 ft. HDMI cable is used to connect the VP500-103 to an HDMI large screen display.
Jack Gershfeld, President of Altinex, commented on the new VP500-103 High Resolution Media Player, “Our new VP500-103 is the perfect tool for displaying presentation material. With its ability to display an idle image such as a company logo or short video loop upon power up, the room’s video display will never again show the dreaded No Signal message when all inputs are de-selected. The included USB flash drive makes it a snap to load one’s presentation materials and the included handheld remote makes operation quick and intuitive. I’m confident integrators and end users alike will find this to be an ideal solution for AV presentation usage.”
The Altinex VP500-103 High Resolution Media Player is available now. MSRP: $195.00.
