NEW!  The Sprite®4K DV-S4, from MedeaWiz, is a high quality, high reliability, low cost interactive media player that plays ultra high definition (UHD), high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) digital video and/or audio media files from a standard micro-SD or USB memory device.  The video output is digital at up to full UHD (2160p50/p60) and the audio output is 5.1 surround sound, stereo (or mono) digital.  Analog Standard Definition (PAL or NTSC) video and stereo or mono audio output is also available on a separate connector.

See our Recent Applications page for details of the Sprite used for scare attractions, in-store advertising, museums, visitor centres, escape rooms, art galleries, entertainment and information display.

Continuous looping playback begins when power is applied and the processor runs. The Sprite®4K plays most ultra high definition, high definition and standard definition file types including MPEG-1, 2 and 4, H.264 and WMV9 from a regular high-speed micro-SD memory card or USB drive. It can be used as an audio-only player playing MP3 or WAV files. It has a high speed 2-way serial communications port at 3.3v or 5v TTL level to work with an external control device such as a PC, show-controller or PLC to play and control up to 200 media files on command.

The Sprite®4K gives continuous feedback reports on its serial communications port telling which file is playing, and the end of file mark. It has a single direct push-button switch input that can trigger on contact-close or contact-open to trigger the playing of a single media file.

When playing video files from a playlist there are no black frames or a black "glitch" displayed when looping or changing files. The Sprite®4K has a 5V DC output to power a PIR motion sensor, the optional Hydra I/O expander unit, the 8x78 expander board or another small load.

The DV-PIR2 is a motion sensor that triggers the Sprite to play a single media file once it detects the presence of body heat.

The Hydra I/O expander provides numerous input and output options and combinations to the Sprite enabling it to have multiple push-button switches and LEDs connected.  DMX-512 control is also available. 

The 8x78 expander board provides up to 8 trigger inputs to the Sprite.

Video outputs are HDMI for UHD and HD digital video or a 3.5mm jack for analog composite video.
Audio outputs are HDMI and SPDIF for digital 5.1 surround sound, stereo and mono audio or a 3.5mm jack for analog stereo or mono audio.
