More than a player, a MediaHub is a smart device that not only plays premium video and/or audio, it can be programmed to orchestrate a fully interactive experience including many forms of user controls, and even lighting effects. Most of our MediaHubs have BrightSign Built-In, leveraging the power of BrightAuthor and the legendary video and audio quality of BrightSign. This group of products also includes more traditional audio players, but these are also optimized for interactivity, and hardened for use in retail spaces.

Headphone Switchers

Modern consumer headphones have advanced in the past decade. Many of today’s headphones can only be demonstrated effectively with a powerful headphone amplifier, so we have made a science of perfecting the right amplification levels and honing the frequency response to show off headphones for serious shoppers. We offer headphone demonstrators that accept digital and/or analog audio, have auxiliary inputs for customer’s music players, and most can be chained together to expand the capacity of a display.

  • Modular AudioHub: AH4
  • Digital Audio Switchers: AS8, AS8-IP

We add interactivity to the experience, coordinating the light behaviors with audio, video, and user interaction. Use your imagination and our LED Lighting Effects modules to get attention, and get your message across.
