Written by Blaine Semple on . Posted in Press

Following a successful launch of the MP75 and the All-In-One digital ad players at the start of 2012, CE labs kicks off the summer unveiling the expansion of an already established digital signage product line at InfoComm 2012 with powerhouse media players, TV wall processors and a touchscreen tablet.

MP700 The MP700 is a 1080p network-ready digital media player capable of running pristine Blu-ray quality video at enhanced bit-rates. With synchronous triple output video and external touchscreen support, the MP700 is an integral component for retail environments. The MP700 comes with IR control with keyboard/mouse support, RS232 output for commercial controlled environments and APIs for native applications. The operating system is built on the security of Linux and allows development of network controlled API for controlling remote units over distributed networks. The MP700 uses Webkit QT web browser for muti-layering support for zoning text, imagery and video.

“We took a good hard look at what we offer in our product line and found ways to bring more to the table for less cost,” Eric McCready, Vice President, stated. “The MP700 is our answer to many of the challenges that retailers face in establishing a scalable in-store digital signage system.”Optional features for the MP700 include QAM/ATSC tuner input and GPIO 8 port push-button support.

The MP700 is available to pre-order today.

AIO710 The AiO710 touchscreen tablet is a commercial-grade media control unit with a 10″ display supporting resolutions up to 1024×768 and allows for 1080p video output. RS232 output for commercial controlled environments and IR control with keyboard/mouse support comes standard. “Through the use of familiar touchpad gestures, the AiO710 is a great device for providing interactive experiences to customers and easily integrates into retail environments due to the APIs we provide for custom native and network applications” explained, Eric McCready. The AiO710 has dual screen support and uses WebkitQT for muti-layering and transparent overlays that provide zoning options in order to deliver multiple messages.

Internal speakers, a gigbit ethernet port and a VESA mount allow the AiO710 to be used as a stand-alone device for media communications. Just like the MP700, the AiO710 includes NTSC/QAM/ATSC tuner input and GPIO 8 port push-button support as optional features.

The AiO710 is available to pre-order today.

TV Wall Processor Our new video wall processors, DVP19 and DVP14, are a powerful and cost effective ways to deliver fully real-time data/video processing to up to 9 displays or projectors. Support for multiple formats such as HDMI, DVI, S-video component and VGA allow for flexible integration for most any environment. Resolutions from 640×480 to 1920×1200 are fully supported. “One of the outstanding features that this unit offers is advanced video de-interlacing for improving 480i and 576i standard definition video,” Eric McCready said. “Sports bars and pubs that are looking for an economical TV wall solution will find that feature useful if their content options are limited to standard definition.”

Both video wall processors have built-in long distance RS-232 control ports over CAT5e and can function as a video screen splitter, video converter and video switcher. Each output has an independent controllable display area and can be cascaded to obtain more displays. PIP, PAB and full screen modes are adjustable by size and position through packaged software which can be controlled via RS-232 and RS-485.

The DVP19 and DVP14 are available to order today.
