DV 68 Launch

PIXELS UK LAUNCHES DV-68 SOLID STATE DIGITAL MEDIA PLAYER For MPEG-1,2, 4, DivX and other digital media formats 
November 30, 2005. Pixels UK Ltd. specialists in computer display technology and digital video systems, has announced today its latest representation agreement with US multimedia hardware solution manufacturer, MedeaWiz Inc. to distribute the new DV-68 Digital Media Player. The product is designed to be a very easy-to-use and low-cost solution for many professional AV, digital signage or interactive kiosk applications. The DV-68 has a recommended end-user price of just £185.00 + VAT and is available now.

Norman Garland, MD of Pixels UK said: 'We are delighted to be distributing the new DV-68 digital media player from MedeaWiz after having so much success with its predecessor, the DV-66. We sold hundreds of these to professional AV systems and installation companies who use them in museums, retail advertising, theme and leisure complexes and exhibitions. The DV-68 has many of the same features as the DV-66 plus the ability to play the latest MPEG-4 and DivX digital media. Its very low cost makes it ideal for even the most basic and cost-conscious digital AV installation."

The DV-68 will play many digital video and audio formats including MPEG-4, DivX, MPEG-2, VOB, DAT, MPEG-1, JPEG and MP3 - all from a CompactFlash® (CF) memory card - so there are no moving parts to wear out or fail. The DV-68 can be set up to play continuously from power-on or to be user controlled via a keypad, resistive touch-screen, PIR motion sensor or RS-232 commands from a show controller. It connects easily to any PAL, NTSC or VGA display monitor and stereo audio system via industry-standard connectors. Media for the DV-68 requires no special preparation or encryption and is simply dragged-and-dropped onto the CF card. The DV-68 Digital Media Player is small - just 158mm x 133mm x 32mm, and powered from a separate 12V power supply. This and the unit's rugged aluminium construction make it ideal for mobile applications such as information and advertising systems in buses, trains, boats and taxis. The playing time is dependent on the capacity of the CF card and on the compression standard used. For instance, a 2GB CF card will store over 70-minutes worth of MPEG-2 video and audio media or over 36-hours worth of MP3 audio. For even greater capacity a hard disk drive with USB-2.0 adaptor is available which accepts a 2.5" laptop hard-disk drive of any capacity.
