The incoming stream can also be recorded to the 1TB (40h) internal storage as a Digital Cinema Package (DCP) for future playback. The NP100 video player is designed to provide the affordable versatile media playback of quality 2D and 3D required for markets including special events large venues museums theme parks and high-end digital signage.
