Some people, I won't name names, at The Weird Box are known to geek out pretty hard about trend-setting technology. We held an event for side-by-side iPad testings just this morning! It's no surprise that we're pretty amped about CE labs newly launched MP75 - a high definition digital media player with GPIO push-button features.
For years we've struggled with finding a truly versatile player to satiate all our media playback needs - and it's finally here! Not only does the MP75 play our videos at Blu-ray quality and is 3D ready, it also supports photo and audio playback. The best part is the new GPIO push-button capabilities. There's a built-in organizational system for multiple media types to be placed into folders and playback is triggered by push-buttons (optional.) We can see companies using this stand-alone player anytime anywhere.
Ideas are already ruminating for content creation from our designers. Restaurants, bars and lounges can utilize the player to cater different content to different crowds throughout the day. The player can exist independently on an in-store kiosk to garner user interaction. Businesses will have a plethora of display options since the MP75 has HDMI, component, composite, and VGA outputs. Not to mention, when used in a public setting, there's a definite possibility for generating revenue by providing digital signage ad space for local businesses. The Weird Box has the resources to create, edit, or obtain content for a multitude of applications.
Our excitement can't be contained, as indicated by this past week's marketing campaign for the MP75. CE labs was met with an influx of interest for the player immediately after its release and will surely continue on this trajectory through the next few months.
