rAVe: Videotel Markets DVD Player for Digital Signage

October 12, 2011 by guest author rAVe Publications, rAVe Publications

Dubbed the HD2600, Videotel’s latest DVD player outputs 720p (and up-scaled 1080p) via HDMI and includes DS features such as auto starts, auto plays and auto repeats even after a power loss.

This is an interesting concept for a low-cost DS system, but presents a management issue as changing content requires someone to change the DVDs on a regular basis.

According to Videotel, the HD2600 DVD player is estimated to play continuously for 4+ years but is only backed by an 18-month warranty. For companies that require a looping video to play 24 hours a day, seven days a week, this one will do the job — no networked content here.

Videotel has kind of a weird marketing pitch for the player, saying, “a unique feature of the HD2600 is that you only need to purchase a single unit once and if it eventually loses its life, you simply replace the internal loader for the investment of $168 and you will have a new player that is capable to run for another 4+ years making it the ultimate ‘green’ DVD player on the market.”

Huh?

Priced at $286 for a single unit, the HD2600 DVD player’s details are here: http://www.industrial-dvd.com/
