Digital advertising and real-time information

Already embedded within NEC’s signage displays (V-Series MPi), the NEC MediaPlayer software is preinstalled on the Raspberry Pi compute module. Straight out of the box, this modular SoC MediaPlayer provides an intuitive plug and play digital signage solution, easy to manage and capable of guiding the user to create powerful visual experiences.

The NEC MediaPlayer software operates on a single display or even connects multiple displays to an array within one network. The software and service is preinstalled and free of charge for the NEC customer.

Choose from a broad range of media formats with HTML5 browser support to facilitate creative content creation for different demands. With only one user friendly menu, manage both the NEC MediaPlayer and the display via a browser client or the NEC display remote control, whichever is most convenient. Even first time users are quickly managing multiple media types, scheduling and distributing content.
