ViewSonic today at InfoComm 2009 announced the availability of its new NMP-550 and NMP-200 RISC-based media players, its NMP-700 high performance X86-based media player and small format signage displays including the 10” CD1010, 10” VFP1038 and 8” VFP838, further expanding the company’s evolving portfolio of digital signage solutions.

NMP-550 and NMP-200 – RISC-based media players:
ViewSonic’s new NMP-550 and NMP-200 offer a solid state, cost-effective alternative to PC-based media players. Working closely with IAdea Corp., a leader in middle-ware technology for RISC-based media players, ViewSonic developed two of the industry’s first RISC media players to be compatible with Release 5 of Scala Content Manager software announced today. As a result, Scala is able to significantly reduce overall system costs for its customers.

The SMIL compatible NMP-550 features 1080p resolution for Full HD video along with 4GB of local storage, whereas the NMP-200 supports a resolution of 480p and local storage is optional. Both devices also include Signage Manager Express software for content management. The NMP-550 is now available for an MSRP of $799. The NMP-200 will be available in July 2009 with an MSRP of $299.


NMP-700 – High Performance X86-based media player:
The NMP-700 X86-based network media player features an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB memory, 160GB storage and a high performance hardware video decoder. The NMP-700 is the perfect solution for applications requiring Full HD 1080p video and complex graphics. This device is also compatible with a broad range of industry-leading digital signage software vendors. The NMP-700 is now available for an MSRP of $1,099.

CD1010, VFP1038 and VFP838 – small screen display solutions:
Expanding its commercial display offerings, ViewSonic today introduced the new CD1010. The 10” commercial display features built-in 802.11b/g/n compatible wireless and is also Scala Ready, allowing it to connect to a Scala digital signage network. ViewSonic is the only supplier to offer this class of product to date. The CD1010 commercial grade frame will be available in Q3 2009.

ViewSonic also expanded its small format signage lineup with two new Wi-Fi, 4:3 aspect ratio, 800 x 600 high-resolution frames. Compatible with the new subscription-based digital signage service, SignChannel, from FrameMedia, Inc. and Scala, ViewSonic’s new multimedia enabled 10” VFP1038 and 8” VFP838 can wirelessly stream a variety of digital content including news, local weather, sports, traffic reports and custom advertisements. As a result, SMBs and other cost-conscious customers now have access to a personalized, low-cost digital signage solution.

The VFP1038 and VFP838 offer access to photo sharing sites such as Flickr and Picasa, in addition to music and video functionality. Teamed with calendar, alarm and clock applications and internal memory for large storage capacity, these frames are ideal for consumers and small to medium businesses. The VFP1038 and VFP838 will be available in Q3 2009 with MSRPs of $229.99 and $169.99, respectively. SignChannel services will be available on these frames for an additional monthly service charge.

 “Technology must continue to evolve in order to address the changing needs of businesses and consumers alike,” said Jeff Volpe, vice president and general manager of ViewSonic North America. “This is why we have come together in collaboration with some of the leading digital signage and digital content developers at InfoComm 2009. We are proud to provide our customers with low-cost, quality products that offer smart, multimedia management solutions.”
