DELAND, FL AUGUST 04, 2015 — Stetson University recently chose Videotel’s VP71 industrial digital signage media players to showcase student video work in the Hand Art Center, the campus art gallery.
The VP71 industrial digital signage player is known for its rugged durability and hands-off functionality. The digital media player can be used in a variety of ways to display any media content from photos to videos, with or without sound, seamlessly. Even in a power failure, the VP71 will automatically resume playback when power is restored.
Associate Professor Nathan Wolleck, Chair of the Department of Creative Arts, was dissatisfied with the department’s previous method of displaying student video work. The department would use computers and play videos on a long continuous loop. Visitors to the gallery had no control over the presentation of content. The computer played on, whether any guests were there to watch or not. Wolleck knew there had to be a better way.
Working with his Creative Arts department, Wolleck paired Videotel‘s VP71 industrial media player with Videotel’s IPM Interplay Module and with LED buttons to create a sleek, interactive display of student work. According to Wolleck, “the VP71 just sat neatly behind the flat screen on the wall. The resulting video theater felt right at home in the gallery. Now, visitors control the flow of content and the player sits quietly during the idle moments when there are no visitors.”
Wolleck believes that the VP71 industrial media player was the right choice for not only the current display, but future gallery events as well. “We look forward to using it whenever we need to showcase video projects in our art gallery and, should we need multiple video screens, we will certainly be buying another Videotel unit,” he said.
