Product Description

Product Description

Opus is a revolutionary series of compact and robust screen-based players, developed and designed specifically for on site interpretation of museums and visitor venues.

This ground-breaking series of guides ushers in a new world of interpretive possibilities for institutions that value sophisticated design and require rugged, easy to use players. With Opus, institutions can provide visitors access to various digital resources - video, images and animation on top of the traditional audio - in a platform catering exactly to the needs of their visitors.

The high-performance computing capabilities of Opus will amaze visitors accustomed to sophisticated graphic images and digital movies: its processing speed and memory capacity enable delivery of high resolution video files and the CD-quality sound that users of consumer technology demand.

The content manager is intuitive and flexible, allowing for simple additions and deletions of content, as well as more complex functions, like integration of timed audio with video and images.
