Roku Announces BrightSign High-Definition Solid State Media Player

Roku has introduced the BrightSign HD2000 solid state media player. The HD2000 adds high-definition video and playlist support to the BrightSign line of media players. BrightSign also supports photos, audio, and interactivity.

The BrightSign HD2000 is easy to operate and customize. Simply insert a removable flash card to display looping playback of video, image, and audio content using playlists. To add interactivity with button controls or touch screens, there are several options from the very simple all the way up to complete scripting. Playlists are supported, state-based tables, or BrightScript, an easy scripting language designed specifically to enable new interactive features to solid state media playback.

BrightSign with BrightScript is designed specifically to control digital signage, in-store point-of-purchase displays, museum exhibits, and kiosks. BrightSign has no moving parts, making it much more reliable than other display options. In addition, it easily mounts to walls, shelves, or cabinets.

BrightSign HD2000 connects to both standard VGA and XVGA LCD monitors and high-definition displays via component video or HDMI. Connectivity options include HDMI, component video, two USB ports (for touch screens, keyboards, mice, trackballs, speakers, and more), three stereo analog audio outs, SPDIF audio out, GPIO port for button or switch inputs and LED or other outputs, IR remote control, Ethernet, and two serial ports.
