NEC Display Solutions of America has expanded its line with a new accessory for its large-format LCD displays, the MPD-DTi analog, digital and Internet protocol tuner module, an advancement in the market for an integrated option slot card. The tuner card allows users to stream content up to 1080P through the built-in expansion slot of NEC’s S, P and X Series products.
The new MPD-DTi analog/digital tuner card enables users to broadcast digital signage content while still acting as a standard digital/analog tuner. The addition of Internet Protocol television (IPTV) capabilities allows the delivery of programming through an encoded video stream and supports video and audio decoding formats including MPEG-2, H.264/AVC and WMA. The MPD-DTi is a device designed for IT networks where the screens can receive and display a digital signage video signal, whether it be one channel or multiple via unicast or multicast broadcasting. These environments include corporate buildings, public information areas and airports where the IT infrastructure is set up so that users can store video content at the server’s location and stream to the displays’ locations throughout the facility.
