There is much confusion in the industry about media players and the what is needed for digital signage deployments. This course begins with understanding what a media player is and what it does. We then look at the various types of media players and their specifications. Many screen manufacturers now have media players embedded into the display itself. Can these be a good choice for a media player, or is it generally better to utilize a separate appliance type of media player? This course sorts out the questions and provides clear direction on applications and what to use when and where.
