We are excited that Pioneer has now announced their new industrial Blu-Ray players and solid state Hi-Def players. We have been working hard on this new controller which is designed to not only control Pioneer's DVD players, but their new Blu-Ray and Hi-Def players as well.
Allplay has a broad range of features allowing it to be used in many different applications. It is a frame accurate synchronizer, but it's also a controller for interactive installations or kiosks. It can be set up in a trade show or corporate lobby as a stand alone system running multiple displays. But it can also be used for interactive presentations allowing viewers to select from many separate synchronized presentations, or using sensors to change the images based on people moving through the space.
The features include:
- 10/100 Ethernet input with built-in web server
- Use any computer with an Ethernet port and a browser to configure or control the play loop
- The built in web server allows all setup and interactive control to be done in a standard browser
- Front Panel LCD
- real time status display
- setup and configuration can be done without a computer
- Status LEDs
- multi-color LEDs show the status of each player
- Back panel switch for straight vs crossover cables
