Features

Ready-to-use Digital Signage Player

SMP-8000, the industrial-grade hardware, is bundled with dedicated digital signage software, SMP-NEO2, as a complete media player for digital sign applications. SMP-8000 and SMP-NEO2 are optimized to work well together. Not only will you enjoy a seamless user experience, but you can also manage the device remotely from your web browser without installing any additional software.

Tailored for Video Wall and Multi-display Purposes

SMP-8000 supports 4 DisplayPort outputs, allowing extended mode such as 2×1, 1×2, 3×1, 1×3, 4×1, 1×4, or 2×2, that are suitable for video wall solutions. You will be able to execute flexible multimedia contents on your video walls by integrating SMP-8000 into your digital signage projects.

Easy-to-Use Template Creation in Two Ways

With SMP-NEO2, SMP-2200 provides a web-based Skin Editor so that users can perform a drag-and-drop operation to define the size and the location of each zone directly on SMP players. Through skin editor, you can customize the screen resolution to meet your needs, including screen orientation and multi-display setup. In addition, experienced web designers can also utilize any web-editing tool to create HTML pages for the greatest flexibility.

Intuitive Scheduling Management

You can insert a one-time event or arrange periodic tasks based on daily, weekly, monthly or yearly timescales. You can assign a date, a time period, or even a day in a specific week of a month (e.g. 2nd Sunday in May). Location-based scheduling or central scheduling through a CMS server is also available to increase the flexibility.

Support Intuitive Multi-Touch Gestures

SMP players support integration with HID compliant touch panels and multi-touch gestures. Users can tap, swipe, pinch or spread one or two fingers to click, change, zoom in or out web pages. Thus, digital signage can interact with customers in a more intuitive way. You may also create your own custom gestures to suit your specific needs and drive customer engagement.
