D&M Adds DN-F400 Compact Serial Control SD Player and RC-F400S Dedicated Remote to New Solid State Series (14/5/2010)

D&M Business & Professional Group (Europe) showed the second model in the new Denon solid state series of professional playback devices for the first time in Europe at Prolight + Sound. The DN-F400 is a compact half-rack size SD and SDHC flashcard player with both serial and parallel control capabilities, intended for critical installation applications requiring continuous playback of audio, or repeated programmed or instantly triggered messaging or audio FX. Launched in conjunction with the DN-F400 is the RC-F400S dedicated serial remote controller.

The DN-F400 is an advanced digital media solution for the continuous or triggered playback of MP3 and uncompressed .WAV sound files stored on SD and SDHC flashcards (up to 32GB). Its compact, single half-RU space saving form and simple facia with hardwire (dip switch) rear panel setup are designed specifically for instant or programmed repeat messaging, fire and safety voice alarm announcements, radio spots, live event and theatre sound FX, and kiosk applications, as well as continuous playback applications like voice on hold and BGM.

RS232 serial control enables remote operation and programming of the DN-F400 via PC and external control systems, or the dedicated RC-F400S remote. Parallel control allows triggering and hot start of up to 20 preloaded files by contact closure. With no moving parts the DN-F400 offers virtually maintenance free operation and is optimally configured as a modern, cost effective digital media replacement for CART, MD and CD / DVD and costly software based systems.

System features include the easy to operate tape-recorder like control panel with easy to read OLED display, playback of mono and stereo uncompressed WAV (44.1/48kHz) and MP3 file from robust, industry-standard SD and SDHC flash card media, securable SD slot, Random, Repeat One, Repeat All modes, program playlists via .m3u files, external RS-232c and GPIO control, front-panel headphone output with level control, and balanced and unbalanced audio outputs.

The RC-F400S serial remote controller provides an intuitive user interface, featuring a large backlit LCD display for file navigation and loading of hot starts. Full navigation and transport control includes features like Power-On and Auto Play, and enables audio and sound FX files

to be readily assigned to each of the 20 Hot Start buttons. In combination, the RC-F400S and DN-F400 is a powerful, significantly cost effective alternative to sound FX payback and management software systems, and a modern dependable replacement for outmoded CART, CD and MD players.   AddThis Social Bookmark Button
