Firmware Update Provides Additional Functionality to the Denon DN-V755 Digital Audio/Video Player

Wed, June 19, 2013

Denon Professional is pleased to announce a new firmware update for its DN-V755 Digital Audio Video Player, which has become a favorite of the digital signage market for its ability to store and playback a variety of file formats on its built-in hard drive. The new system update, which is expected to be available for all DN-V755 users free of charge as of August 1, 2007, from Denon Professional’ website, offers significant increases in functionality and new features.

With the installation of the new firmware, DN-V755s deployed anywhere will now be able to pull content in any location with an Internet connection, via an FTP server. The DN-V755 units can be programmed to log into the server at a scheduled time and download any new content and playlists there, and then automatically update and restart their hard drives. Content developers can also establish multiple directories containing customized content for different locations and the new firmware update will allow the user to direct each DN-V755 unit to the proper directory. “This is a major advantage for multiple-location users, such as retail chains, that need to update their digital signage information on a daily basis,” Karl Gustafson, Denon Professional Brand Manager, at D&M Professional. “For instance, a clothing chain can direct network connected DN-V755 units at dozens of locations to log into the server at midnight, seek out the appropriate directory for new information for its locations, download that information, restart the unit and be ready to go with an entirely new program the next morning, all automatically. It’s another way Denon Professional is continuing to serve the changing needs of the fast-growing digital signage sector.” In addition to these new features, the new firmware update also adds a password protection feature to the DN-V755 — once implemented, content and playlists cannot be changed or uploaded by anyone but the authorized users.
