Digital Signage SPX-1300

Inspired XPress is tailored for organizations that desire to manage all aspects of their digital signage including content creation. Inspired XPress features a simple, intuitive software interface that allows staff to quickly create templates and content, and then publish content to Inspired Players which are small enough to mount behind any display. Content design is fluid, similar to a web page. The SPX-1300 Player supports 720p video and improved animation making it a powerful easy-to-use, energy efficient solution that delivers outstanding HD image quality.

Ideal for digital signage applications where the player must be mounted behind the display or in a confined space like a kiosk or video wall, Inspired XPress has the power to deliver dynamic information to customers of retailers, hotels, banks, event venues and other public spaces in multiple languages.
