Here are just a few jobs for your Micro Player 2...

  • In Public Places: Broadcast messages, warnings, directions, assistance, etc.

  • On Buses, Boats, Trains & Planes: Provide commentary, music, notifications, etc.

  • In Museums & Exhibitions: Provide descriptions, sound effects, background information, etc.

  • In Hotels & Health Clubs: Use one player per zone for varied background music

  • In Factories: play alarm messages on defective status detection.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Simple yet powerful SD Card & USB Stick WAV/MP3 Player for
    commercial use

  • Four electrical input contacts to trigger WAV/MP3 files (15 when binary combined)

  • Line level phono outputs

  • Infra-red detector for external
    remote control

  • RS232 serial link

  • External 12v PSU

  • Volume controls

  • One third rack size
     

  • 2 x 20w integrated amplifier
    The Micro Player has a built-in power amplifier (2 x 18w into 4ohm or 2 x 10 watt into 8ohm) which is sufficient for most small sized environments. Its line level phono outputs may also be fed to a more powerful external amplifier for medium and large premises, if need be.
     

  • Low Power Mode
    When a Micro Player is configured to be in lower power mode its power consumption is less than 1mA. This delivers long term autonomy when powered on a battery topped up by solar energy, for example.
     

  • Optional 19" x 1U rack adaptor to fit up to three Micro Players
    The Micro Player is a flexible audio source device which can be used as a stand-alone unit or in 19" racks. The casing is designed in a 1/3rd rack width format to allow up to three Micro Player 2 units to be fitted side-by-side in the optional 19" x 1U rack mount adaptor.

Interactive WAV/MP3 Player for Announcements, Background Music, Commentary, Effects and Narration

Here's a simple, robust and reliable way of getting your message across - the Micro Player 2. Whilst the majority of our solid state sound offerings are recorders designed for digital audio acquisition, here's a device that will replay your recordings in a host of common applications (see panel left).

The highly versatile Micro Player 2 is specifically designed for installations where the broadcast of sounds, music, commentaries, messages and announcements is required either in a pre-defined playback mode (preset) or in an interactive mode (controllable by external devices like push-button switches).

WAV or MP3 audio files are stored on either SD/SDHC memory cards or USB memory sticks using any file manager (e.g. Explorer on a PC, Finder on a Mac). Powerful, versatile automation of the playback programme is achieved by inserting simple alpha-numeric codes into your audio filenames and directory names. The naming of the files actually determines the broadcast pattern - for instance, which input starts the file, if it can be interrupted and the next action when it ends. There is even a code you can add which varies the volume at which you'd like a file to play.

Whilst audio files on the Micro Player 2 can be triggered in many and various ways, the most popular usage by our customers is for the delivery of a choice of audio information at exhibitions and in museums. Typically in these applications visitors are presented with labelled buttons on the exhibit - these may be language choices or commentary options - and by pressing the appropriate button they can listen to information about the exhibit in their chosen language or their chosen section of the commentary.

The Micro Player 2 can make this kind of thing happen very easily and inexpensively. Take a look at the Micro Player 2 INFO SHEET and OWNERS MANUAL for further comprehensive details.

Main Functions
 

Autoplay

Playback automatically starts on powering your Micro Player on. This is configurable.
 

Interactivity


The playback of files is triggered when one of the input contacts is activated. An activation command (a 'trigger') can be sent using a choice of three methods:

  • Infra-red remote control

  • RS232 serial link

  • 4 contact closures can be 'made' via a simple push button or other type of switch (e.g. pressure mat). In this way one can trigger up to 15 choices of file using a binary combination.

Playback Mode
 

Four playback modes are available: Loop, Play Once & Stop, Random or Pre-defined Order. It is also possible to allow or disallow file interruption.
 

RS232 Link
 

The Micro Player's serial control function enables it to be very versatile...

  • In Daisy Chain Mode the serial out-Tx of one Micro Player is linked to the serial in-Rx of the next one and so on... orders (triggers) are transmitted in the chain of players and each player can be addressed individually. Up to 127 Micro Players can be controlled through one serial link.
     

  • In Monitoring Mode status data are sent to the serial outTx (e.g. start/stop status, volume changes, USB mode, etc.). In security situations the Micro Player's status can therefore be monitored by a controller.


For larger systems three Micro Player units can be housed in the optional 19" rackmount adaptor.
(Please note that this photo shows the Mark One version of the MicroPlayer, not the Mark Two,
but the rack works just the same for the Mark Two as it does for the Mark One.)
