Optoma Enters Digital Signage Market with HD Media Player and Point of Purchase Display Panels

Published July 9th, 2009 - 06:22 GMT

Projector specialist Optoma has entered the digital signage market with the launch of its SignShow D5000 high definition (HD) media player and the SignShow 7POP, a 7 inch point of purchase LCD display panel.  The products are the first of many planned for the Optoma SignShow range, designed to offer installation partners flexible, profitable, high specification digital signage solutions that suit a number of applications, such as commercial, retail outlets, hotels and leisure chains, restaurants and bars, plus travel sites such as airports and train stations.

The Optoma SignShow D5000 is an advanced HD media player that provides the ideal hub for powering any stand alone or networked digital signage installation. The player can output a total combination of up to seven zones to the same display panel with output resolutions from VGA up to 1080P, plus deliver content to all networked screens. With SignShow Creator Software for Windows included as part of the complete offering, users can easily design, preview, publish and manage the schedule signage content and messaging. Full LAN network capability also means the media player can be controlled, configured and managed remotely.

“The out of home (OOH) media market is expected to quadruple from 160 million Euro (US$224,584,000) in 2007 to over 626million (US$878,610,000) by 2012, driven by retailers, brands and advertisers who want to better target consumers away from home*,” said Adam Dent, Territory Manager for Optoma Middle East & Africa.  “Optoma has recognised the potential of this market and through the development of our range of high specification, yet cost-effective digital signage solutions we can enable installers to take full advantage of this growing demand.”

Ideal for many applications, the Optoma SignShow 7POP is a versatile, 7 inch display panel with built-in speakers, offering a cost effective way to promote the latest products, games, movies and gadgets at the point of purchase. The 7POP comes bundled with the SignShow General Layout Editor (GLE) software, which runs on Windows, allowing anyone to create professional digital signage content in a matter of minutes. Content can also be uploaded remotely across a LAN network or local by USB to the 7POP.
