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 setup so that users can store video content at the server's location and stream to the displays' locations throughout the facility.
"By using the MPD-DTi tuner module in conjunction with the expansion slot in NEC's S, P and X Series large-format displays, customers are able to stream video content from a variety of sources, which adds incredible value to existing networks," said Luke Bruschuk, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. "NEC prides itself on being the first industry leader to offer an integrated tuner card product that has all the features users have come to expect from a typical tuner with the enhancement of IP capabilities. Deploying the MPD-DTi accessory within a network aids administrators with ease in setting up an IPTV network through Unicast or Multicast infrastructure."
Below is a partial list of specifications for the MPD-DTi:
The MPD-DTi tuner card will be available for May 2010 shipment at an estimated street price of $259 with a 3-year parts and labor limited warranty.
