The included Gefen DSP Server Pro software suite* provides all the tools to properly create playlists, schedules, as well as the management of all the devices in your digital signage application.

Besides, the Gefen HD Digital Signage Player supports various video codecs MPEG1/2, DivX, Xvid, H.264 encoding MPEG4 Full HD, and WMV9 (1080p). The integrated USB 2.0 port is offered for firmware updates or uploading content. The DSP also comes with mounting brackets for a secure installation behind the display or on the wall.
Easy to create signage content The Gefen DSP Server Pro software suite* allows you to create playlists in a matter of minutes. The DSP Designer application is an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop based program that is used to schedule content. Both images and video can be used to create playlists that are set to playback at anytime during the day. These one day playlists can then be scheduled for single or multiple-day usage. Schedules that cover extended periods of time can be created so that weeks, or even months worth of playlists can run without further management by the user. A single line of text can also be added in a “ticker” style to specific images or videos, or to appear on screen at scheduled times. Finally, if images are used, background music can be added to augment the experience. (*The included software suite is compatible with computers running Microsoft Windows only.)
Easy to send signage content When all of the schedules and playlists are complete, the DSP Server Pro software is ready to manage the process of uploading this content to the device. This unique application uses a login and password scheme to allow access to your devices from any location on the planet with web access. With the use of smart DNS routing, each DSP device can be programmed with a domain name specific to you or your organization. This means that the all DSP’s in the field can be reached from your computer no matter where you log in from. The software will receive live feedback from all of your DSP’s, and the playback status can easily be monitored from the management console. Schedules can be uploaded to a single device or groups of devices for easy content management. If your DSP’s are located on the same LAN network, you can disable the DNS routing and login features, and have direct access to your units without the need for an internet connection.
Comprehensive playlists User-created playlists can contain multiple digital signage file formats such as audio files, video files, scrolling text and background music. Landscape and portrait style displays are supported. This content can be set to play individually or combined for playback at different times of the day, week, or month. This Gefen HD Digital Signage Player also offers 2GB of internal memory to store multiple playlists.
