Alcorn McBride is now shipping the Digital Video Machine HD™, a high definition video player designed for maximum reliability under challenging conditions. Offering up to 40Mbps maximum playback rate in a compact chassis that contains no moving parts, the DVM-8400HD provides superb video quality for a wide variety of applications including theme parks, cruise ships, transportation, museums and display kiosks.
Video clips are stored on CompactFlash cards; files can be copied directly to the cards or transferred via USB or Ethernet. Clips may be triggered via contact closures, playlists, real-time schedules, RS-232, Ethernet, or via GPS for vehicle applications. A front panel knob and display helps to provide status and quick access to configuration options.
Measuring 7.1” W x 1.75” H x 11” D (1/2 rack), the DVM-8400HD can be mounted in equipment racks, under tables, behind monitors, or in other convenient spots for the user. It supports the most popular audio and video encoding standards including MPEG 2 and 4, h.264, VC-1, WMA, AAC and Dolby. Video outputs include Component (YPbPr or RGB), Composite (SD), HDMI, and HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M).
“The Digital Video Machine HD offers superb video quality while being rugged enough to travel just about anywhere,” said Jeremy Scheinberg, Alcorn McBride COO. “With no moving parts, it works well even in high vibration environments such as a tour bus or theme park attraction.”
