"top-of-the-line" FULL HD (High-Definition) fully-triggerable solid state media player, "THE BLACK BOX™". Now you can use any of our "triggering" Halloween visual FX products WITHOUT the need of a DVD or DVD-Player. You can now run these products in 100% digital format.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with what a "solid-state-media-player" actually is ... "solid state means" there are NO MOVING PARTS to wear and tear or break down. "THE BLACK BOX™" reads "digital files" from an SD card, USB stick, or external hard drive to provide video playback in glorious SD or HD quality. (SD card, USB stick, or external hard drive not supplied).

With over a year in development, and specifically designed FOR Halloween attractions / haunters BY Halloween haunters, "THE BLACK BOX™" includes ALL the features and functionalities you would ever want / need for your haunted attraction.

Amazingly small (3.6" x 5.60" x 1") BUT incredibly powerful, "THE BLACK BOX™" has been especially designed for use with ALL Hi-Rez Designs past and future visual fx product line.

Starting from the ground up with custom software / firmware created by video experts, "THE BLACK BOX™" delivers absolutely spectacular image quality and playback in SD (standard definition) 480i and 480p to HD (High-Definitiion) 720p all the way up to 1080P (1920x1080) pixel resolution. You are no longer restricted to standard DVD resolution with your HD monitor or video projector.

Unlike "other" media players currently on the market, this media player DOES NOT have a black screen (no image) appear on the screen when the video has ended and is going to "loop" again. Our player holds the last frame of the playing video on the screen for approximately .5 seconds (1/2 second) before it begins playing the video again.

In addition, "THE BLACK BOX™" can play back just about any video format currently available (RM/RMVB, AVI, DIVX, MKV, MOV, HDMOV, MP4, M4V, PMP, AVC, FLV, VOB, MPG, DAT, MPEG, H.264, MPEG1/2/4,WMV, TP).

With "THE BLACK BOX™", you can use USB stick / device or SD / MCC / SDHC Card from 1 GB - 16 GB to hold all your SD / HD video files for playback.

But it gets even better ... unlike other media players on the market that require the purchase of an additional "triggering" interface / controller ... "THE BLACK BOX™" has our own custom "Media Controller™" INCLUDED! Using the supplied 12VDC output, simply connect a motion sensor, break beam, step mat, or trigger button directly to the "Media Controller™" inputs, and now "THE BLACK BOX™" will only startup / play video when your motion detector is activated.

"THE BLACK BOX™" will also support "non-triggering" continuous looping playback, sequence playback, or random playback which means you can set the media player to continuously play video and run forever if desired.

Don't be fooled by "other" more expensive or lesser quality media players ... If you want THE BEST QUALITY solid-state-media-player designed for haunted attraction / Halloween available anywhere, Hi-Rez Designs "THE BLACK BOX™" is the perfect choice!
