    Revised: November 8, 2010 78-19212-02 (A0) This guide explains how to set up a Cisco Digital Media Player in your network. It assumes that your DMP firmware reports a “build date” after October 2010. This information is updated as needed. Its newest and best revision is on Cisco.com.

    When installing the unit, always make the ground connection first and disconnect it last. Use only the Cisco-supplied combination of power cord, plug, and adapter — if any — that shipped with the equipment, or which you ordered separately. Otherwise, if you use other such supplies, including similar supplies that Cisco might sell for use with similar equipment, you: •...

  • Page 4: Dmp Overview

    Some DMPs differ from others, for example, in their support for interactivity through touch. To learn what your DMP supports, see its datasheet at http://cisco.com/go/dms/dmp/datasheets. DMPs are a major component of Cisco Digital Media Suite (Cisco DMS) and Cisco StadiumVision, both of which we describe elsewhere in this guide.

    • Consider How You Will Use and Manage Your DMP Cisco Medianet technologies can help you to manage the DMPs in your network. To understand DMP support for Medianet, see User Guide for Cisco Digital Media Suite on Cisco.com. An organization might buy and use one DMP in isolation but this is rarely the case. Almost every DMP is part of a network that includes many other DMPs.

    Platform services software and control panels help you to manage a network of DMPs. Combined with Cisco video acquisition infrastructure at the head-end, these DMPs use new or existing video displays in a venue to enhance patron enjoyment of live events and deliver in-house advertising. Your deployment can leverage the displays in bleachers (terraces), restaurants, clubs, and luxury suites to deliver a range of uniquely interactive messages automatically to patrons in various areas.

    Its output fidelity depends in part upon which signal cables (and adapters) connect it to your DMP. A feature of Cisco Digital Signs can detect automatically when some display brands and models are turned On or Off. To connect one of these displays to your DMP, you must use an RS-232 serial cable in addition to the video signal cable.

All displays in this series are engineered for intensive use in public settings. See http://cisco.com/go/dms/lcd.
