With Peerless-AV's new Pico Broadcaster you can open up new digital signage opportunities using broadcast technology to transmit HD content over the air to any number of DTVs within a 350ft (106m) radius. This device can receive content from a computer or select media players with IP transport output capabilities, then broadcasts the signal in HD quality to any open "white space" channel local to the area. Then all you need is a TV with a digital ATSC tuner and an antenna to receive the signal. This scalable technology offers a flexible option to run and add an unlimited number of DTVs within range, making it the most cost-effective solution available for select applications.
