The What: Videotel Digital (opens in new tab)is introducing an all-new upgraded WAVE to Play proximity sensor.
The What Else: WAVE to Play Gen2 features two ports, enabling it to connect to nine additional WAVE to Play devices, and a dial that can be set to trigger one of multiple programmed videos. The unit is roughly half the size of the original (now 3.5 inches x 2.25 inches x 1 inch), making it easier to accommodate. It comes with a cable that allows for dry contact triggering, which means that it can now be integrated with most media players or any other device that requires a dry contact switch. The device comes standard with three wires: a 6-foot wire to connect to a player, a 2-foot to connect to another WAVE to Play unit, and a 6-foot dry contact wire.
The Bottom Line: WAVE to Play is a proximity sensor that responds to the "wave" of a hand, allowing the viewer to trigger a video on a digital signage screen from a distance of between 1 and 3 inches. WAVE can be installed underneath any non-metal material up to 3 inches thick.
