The What: Videotel Digital is introducing Cloud Mobile Connect, a solution for alternative connectivity for digital signage.
The What Else: Videotel Digital’s VP90XD media player can be paired with StudioPro’s cloud service at no additional cost to supply coverage in remote locations that do not have an internet connection, simply by using a mobile cell network hotspot device. The connection will work via any widely available 4G or 5G hotspot device and data service from any mobile cell network company, so no special data plan is required. Any hotspot device (no additional USB modem or SIM card is necessary) can deliver the needed internet connection to the VP90 via Wi-Fi or Ethernet providing connectivity via StudioPro's cloud service in locations that are out of range of traditional hardwired or Wi-Fi internet connections.
The Bottom Line: To get started, customers must purchase a Videotel Digital VP90 media player to pair with StudioPro, their own data plan and hotspot device of their choice. Videotel describes this solution as less costly than other vendors’ mobile cellular connectivity options, and with no ongoing costs.
