For over 55 years, the Science Museum Oklahoma in Oklahoma City has attracted visitors across the state. By revealing the wonder and relevance of science, the museum’s interactive exhibits have provided a fun learning experience for even their youngest visitors. So when the museum found that they were replacing their exhibits’ DVD players far too often, it turned to Videotel Inc. and its HD2600 digital media player to provide a reliable solution for looping content. And to add true interactivity to their digital displays, the museum incorporated Videotel’s Inter-play module (IPM) to the players.
The HD2600 is a true commercial grade looping DVD player designed for rugged use and displays video content on any screen. It is designed to turn on, play automatically, repeat and auto loop without any manual interaction. The only true industrial grade high definition, UL-approved digital media player on the market today, the HD2600 is ideal for environments that desire a cost-effective solution to engage, inform and educate visitors. Combined with Videotel’s Inter-play module, visitors are able to trigger specific video content with the touch of a button.
“The exhibits in our museum require our DVD players to run 10 or more hours per day, seven days a week,” said Gary Jones, exhibits technician at the Science Museum Oklahoma. “Most of our units have been replaced with Videotel equipment, many of which are still operating more than three years, as opposed to the few months we received from regular players. We especially like the fact that they start up automatically when we turn on the breakers in the morning. The customer service and support has been truly excellent as well.”
The HD2600 is incomparable in quality and reliability. For museums like the Science Museum Oklahoma that need reliable digital media solutions to enhance the guest’s experience, the HD2600 DVD player is the perfect solution, allowing for continuous play 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
The plug-and-play functionality of the IPM allows for easy assimilation of Videotel Digital’s HD2600 digital players with the use of a standard four-pin phone cord. The control board includes small push buttons allowing a connection of up to eight different mechanical buttons or motion sensors. The IPM integration into the HD2600 allows for rewind, play/pause, fast-forward, chapter forward/back, stop, power on/off and eject, all through activator control buttons.
“The Science Museum Oklahoma empowers its visitors to learn something new while having fun. We are proud to serve them with reliable digital media players and Inter-play modules that enhance their visitors’ experience,” said Lisa Schneider, Videotel’s vice president of business development and market strategy. “The HD2600 is the perfect solution for museums looking for compact and reliable digital media players for their galleries and exhibitions.”
