Keywest Technology’s newest digital signage players are based on Android, which signifies a major step towards significant reductions in cost, size, and heat. Better yet, the new media players for Android offer outstanding features including 4K output, HD input, and a miniature fanless chassis that is designed around the requirements of digital signage users worldwide.
LENEXA, Kan. (August 24, 2016) – On the heels of the spring introduction of Keywest Technology’s 2nd generation Breeze Digital Signage™ cloud software, the company made a significant commitment to offering the latest media hardware available for Android™. The new media players expand the Breeze HTML5-powered system with the ability to playout 4K Ultra-HD and input Full-HD 1080P simultaneously while infusing real-time aggregated media playlists, which makes Breeze Digital Signage very dynamic, to say the least.
According to Koytt Nichols, company president and director of R&D, the Android technology is an attractive alternative to either dated players or system-on-a-chip (SoC) displays.
“We believe our Breeze Digital Signage players for Android provide the perfect balance for the majority of digital signage installs that scale from small to large installations. We are offering a viable and attractive alternative to so-called display ecosystems that can leave you feeling locked in by limiting your options in the areas of cost, size, performance, and flexibility. With our approach, integrators are free to use the type of display that best suits the installation instead of trying to fit the display to the installation.”
The Breeze players for Android come in two models. The 301 is optimized for 4K Ultra-HD playout at 3840 x 2160 resolution via the certified HDMI 2.0 standard. It also supports a 1080P HDMI input for picture-in-picture (PiP) capability with enough processing power to decode multiple videos simultaneously. All of this provides a stunning big-screen experience, making it an appropriate choice for large venue video walls, advanced techorating, or larger-than-life experiences. The HDMI input also supports HDCP for secure playback of encrypted digital programming in environments where mixed media is desired for the overall ambiance. The 202 model is optimized for Full-HD (1080P) playout and supports two HDMI outputs that play identical content, making it convenient to distribute the signal in a multi-sign environment.
Both models come equipped with advanced features giving Internet-of-Things (IoT) capability that includes built-in BLE Beacon, GigiLAN and WLAN connections, and a programmable RS-232 port. All of this is in addition to handy installation features, such as a built-in chassis lock, mounting tabs, and a fanless design. Furthermore, the industrial grade players are housed in super-slim chassis’ that are designed for 24/7 operation.
