The ultimate out-of-band solution for narrowcasting's last mile, Minicom's Video Display System (VDS) is a quick, efficient way to move rich media content from player to multiple displays.

A one-to-many, point-to-multi-point system for transmission of high quality video, the VDS system distributes rich media content in real-time from any type of player to multiple display devices.

The VDS provides the flexibility you need for a customized digital signage installation, allowing you to position your display devices up to 250m/825ft from the player (with the remote long). Mount displays strategically in public view while keeping the player PCs needed to run the media content out of public reach.

The VDS is one of the most cost effective ways to get a digital signage system up and running in your place of business. For systems with multiple screens, the cost of PCs for every display can be prohibitive. Distribution systems like the VDS that take content from a single media player and transmit it to multiple screens lowers overall costs significantly. It also reduces licensing costs by allowing a very high ratio of screens per content source.

Delivery of rich, dynamic content via an out-of-band system like the VDS is a reliable way to ensure real time display without burdening the network.

The VDS system comes with a unique Dual Screen Remote that provides simultaneous support for two display units at the same location. Designed to help control the costs of your digital signage installations, the Dual Screen Remote lets you double the monitors in the system and saves on CAT5 cable and installation costs. It can be connected to either a VDS Broadcaster/Transmitter or VDS Line Splitter and receives its power from the CAT5 cable.

The VDS family includes the new VGA Extender – a real-time, extension system able to transmit video up to 110m/360ft from one source to one screen or one source to two screens. The system supports resolutions of up to 1080p depending on cable length. Unlike similar products, the VGA Extender is the only system to come with a unique dual screen remote allowing transmission to two back-to-back screens simultaneously thereby doubling the value of your system. Place one screen facing towards the street grabbing the attention of passerby’s 24/7 and one facing inside for your customers.
