DTS XD10 Cinema Media Player Presented at IBC 2007
DTS Digital Cinema has announced the availability of its XD10 Cinema Media Player for digital signage and commercial A/V applications. The product, which combines an HD-capable A/V server and control package ideal for a variety of applications from hotels to airports, theme parks to museums, was exhibited at IBC 2007.
Drawing upon DTS’ extensive experience in the cinema and image processing markets, the XD10 also provides highly flexible networking and configuration capabilities, along with the solid, reliable performance that DTS has been famous for delivering to ‘the big screen’ for over 14 years. The XD10 delivers video in a variety of formats over a broad range of bit rates. In addition to HD video, the XD10 also offers up to 8 channels of audio. This flexible performance makes the XD10 a high-quality, adaptable solution for A/V applications and leads to ease of installation for system integrators.
In order to meet demanding customer needs, DTS has ensured that the XD10 media player uses open standard technology to allow flexibility and easy integration into a wide range of working environments. The use of MPEG and Windows Media 9 coding technologies and standardised file formats allows content to be easily generated and delivered locally utilising either physical media (e.g.DVD) or remotely via an Internet Protocol (IP) network. Tony Nowak, Managing Director of DTS Europe Ltd. commented: "The XD10 Cinema Media Player is very flexible piece of equipment. Not only is it a superb player for DTS Digital Sound® or PCM audio, but it is also a versatile and easy-to-use HDTV server/player for digital signage applications.”
The unit comes with a 120GB HDD as standard which allows up to ten hours of HDTV video with either stereo or 5.1 audio if required. The network interface means that it can be easily updated remotely with new content, making the unit ideal for signage applications such as airports, railway stations and other public information display venues.
