Digital signage product provider Visix has added a new 4K digital signage media player capable of supporting the super-high resolution displays that are now more widely available, the company announced today. The 4K player is powered by an Intel Haswell processor and HD 5000 graphics, enabling it to bring 4K content to life at the ultra-HD resolution of 3840 by 2160.
The new player and its very compact form factor and built-in power supply are designed to be easily placed behind a display. The player measures just 4.25 by 6.5 by 1.63 inches in size.
"Our AxisTV software platform already allows customers to design monitor layouts well beyond 4K — up to 14K in fact — so with the growing use of 4K displays, we are excited to offer a 4K media player to match the new display technology," Visix Chief Sales Officer Trey Hicks said in the announcement. "Many of our corporate, university and health care clients are deploying video walls or large 4K displays in high-traffic or high-visibility areas. This new player extends our ability to accommodate the range of large-display/many-display applications."
In addition to the 4K media player, Visix offers media players with two, four and eight outputs for tackling multidisplay video wall projects.
