Videotel Digital Celebrates its Successful 2015 Year In Review

Sunday, January 24, 2016

San Diego, CA - January 25th, 2016  -  Enjoying the success 2015 brought, Videotel Digital announces a dynamic year in review. 

Specializing in digital solutions for retail, hospitality, restaurants, healthcare and educational as well as government agencies, the company shows its dexterity. They began the year with an award given at the first DSE show they attended. They ended it with an iconic So Cal company singing the praises of their newly launched product. Somewhere in between, they humbly managed to celebrate 35 successful years in business.

Awarded at DSE 2015 by rAVe Publications as the Best New Digital Signage Solution, it was there that Videotel demonstrated Elevate. The solution was newly launched along with Push, Move and Wave; these are interactive products that allow audiences to trigger relevant content. The interactive digital signage solutions work in tandem with the VP71 Industrial Grade Media Player also launched in 2015.

The VP71XD Media Players was a favorite of Videotel client, Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. They purchased it for their hospital rooms to increase patient experience. It was also selected by Cedarville University to create an impressive 40'x40' display at the three-day Southern Baptist Convention in Columbus, Ohio. At the same time, Fee Hedrick Entertainment Group began using the digital media player to amp up their audiences’ experience during its largest live conferences.

The year also saw the release of the VP70 LTE and the VP70 XD. Both designed for heavy commercial use the players can auto-loop any type of media to engage audiences wherever high traffic and dense customer populations congregate. Impressive HD content thrills in cinemas, shopping centers, trade shows, or conference rooms. Such is the case for iconic footwear manufacturer Rainbow Sandals who uses it to auto-loop branding and informational content from a USB with “plug and play” functionality.

Possibly the best 2015 milestone however, was Videotel’s celebration of 35 years in business meeting the digital media needs of both large and small clients. In 2016 watch for the company’s new HD2700 series with industrial looping DVD players as well as the industrial DVD and media player combo unit.

  • Salem Health

    In 2009 Salem Hospital began installing hospital grade DVD players in our common areas and patient rooms to help the people we serve and their families find as much comfort as we could provide during difficult times. I was meant to source these players and over the course of several years, we struggled immensely with numerous brands because of the high failure rates and poor customer service from the manufactures. While searching on the internet for a solution to an untenable problem we discovered Videotel. I asked for a rep to contact me with guarded optimism and shortly afterward Lisa Schneider from Videotel reached out to us.  We worked out an arrangement to bring an HD2600 XD on campus for us to review. Our findings were that the unit was considerably higher-quality than we had seen before.  We ordered a test run for a full floor remodel.  We were involved in and closely watched for failure rates, and were very pleased to find that the Videotel units had a zero failure rate during the trial period and beyond. We are now in the process of transitioning all of our existing DVD players on our campus to Videotel, and we are also putting them in all new construction projects moving forward. Thank you, Lisa and the whole Videotel team for providing a high-quality product and a competitive price.

  • Dairy Queen
    We conducted a wide-ranging search to find a high-grade streaming device and were very fortunate to find the Videotel VP70XD to stream our content in our 2 Grill and Chill Restaurants. We have been very pleased with the quality of the device and the stellar service during and after the sale.  I wholeheartedly recommend Videotel to find a solution for you.

  • Renaissance Hotels

    We installed the HD2600 players the same day we received them. I installed the disc, pushed the power button and that was the last time I touched them. They are awesome.

  • WonderMakr

    “We use is the VP71XD interactive Media player solution to provide a seamless, hands-off experience to educate consumers in pop-up retail locations across Canada for a prominent automotive brand. Multiple signage players were used on a single vehicle to display custom animated graphics and directional, quality, audio to provide an intimate interaction for their newest safety technologies. wonderMakr is already looking at new ways we can use these devices creatively in the marketing, events, and technology sector.”

  • President / TTC INC/ The Travelers Channel

    In the past (5) years, our company TTC INC/The Travelers Channel has purchased about 100 DVD Videotel units. The company operates a 24 hour visitors channel called The Travelers Channel in hotels, the Videotel DVD player has been the answer to our prayers. The DVD player runs 24 hours a day, like a fine Swiss watch. And if there is a power outage, the unit comes right back on without a manual reset. The Videotel DVD player also plays all formats of DVD discs without any problems. I highly recommend these units to any one.

    Al D'Conti
  • Audio Visual Manager / Foxwoods Resort Casino / MGM

    We have DVD players scattered throughout a massive property in retail and promotional areas. In the past, after a power interruption, a technician would have to physically walk to each location and power the units on. The units are not located in the most ideal locations. The life expectancy was only several months. We purchased our first Videotel DVD player several years ago and have not touched it again. I have since replaced all the units with Videotel players. The new V2200 is more compact and easier to place in tight areas. It has one simple job – PLAY, REPEAT. It is a great product at an affordable price!

    Gregory Houle
  • Ovation In Store

    Moving to solid state media players, the VP71 is now our "GO TO" player for all of our retail and commercial applications where video is looped. I've personally tested the player thinking of worst possible situations, and it's passed them all.

    Joe Miklos / Technical Director
  • Rainbow Sandals

    From the moment of contact with Videotel they not only provided us with exceptional customer service but, Videotel’s products are incredibly reliable and simple to operate. We chose Videotel’s VP70 series media players to display educational videos to our retail customers and we couldn’t be happier with the solution.

    Pat Huber / Director
  • Strike Industries, Inc.

    We have had great success using your Industrial DVD player. We use it for an incredibly simple application, but the durability and reliability of your player is a requirement. I like the new look as well.

    Michael E. Black / Vice President
  • Skin Laundry

    From the minute I found Videotel on the internet I was excited. Finally something that looked simple and reliable.  It literally took 5 minutes from opening the box to get rid of all the previous pain and frustration. I will strongly recommend Videotel to anybody looking for a looping video solution. It's incredibly simple to setup, there is no strain on valuable bandwidth, and best of all it never falters.

    Chris Carey / CEO
  • BWISE Manufacturing LLC

    Videotel provided us with the perfect interactive digital solution for our recent 25th-anniversary celebration.  We chose the VP71XD interactive digital player with 4 on-demand push buttons to add a video to our 3D company timeline.  The unit is part of a permanent display for our employees, customers and business partners to learn about the history of BWise Manufacturing® and Bri-Mar Trailers®. 

    Dave McKee / General Manager
  • Beechmont Racquet & Fitness

    We have the need for DVD’s to run continuously over and over again at our club while people workout. We have tried other DVD players with REPEAT functions, including some expensive models, but it has not been as simple as it has seemed.  Videotel seems to have figured it out and made our life simpler.

    Lance Atkins, Owner, Beechmont Racquet & Fitness
  • New Iceland Heritage Museum

    The New Iceland Museum installed a highly interactive digital signage solution for a new permanent exhibit which included a VP71XD Multimedia Player from Videotel Digital.  The player works seamlessly with an interactive panel with LED push buttons and provides high-quality picture and sound. Technical support and customer service were extremely helpful. This player is a definite asset to this exhibit.

    Julianna Roberts / Executive Director
  • Florida Holocaust Museum

    The Florida Holocaust Museum is using Videotel Digital’s VP70 LTE media players in several exhibits throughout the museum. They provide the quality of video and audio we need, and most importantly, the dependability. We haven’t experienced any downtime with these units due to failure or problems. With our previous solution, we were rebooting and restarting our exhibits at least once a week. These are just what we’ve been looking for!

  • KG Fitness

    We have 4 different channels in our fitness center that play prere corded content. We used to buy new DVD players almost every month as they would die after 24hour daily use. Now with the industrial DVD players they run nonstop trouble free and are simple for our non technical staff to use. I would highly recommend there (I actually did to another gym) to anyone who needs constant play.

  • United Grinding

    I think that this unit has been phenomenal. We used several home based systems that would soon fail and we had almost daily problems. Now that we have switched. I do believe that our failure of DVD front side has never failed.

  • DanceMakers Inc.

    Videotel allows us to seamlessly integrate our brand identity across a 20 city national tour and provides our audience with an interesting and thought provoking multimedia experience. After searching the marketplace, VP70 LTE+ Digital Media Player's have been our goto solution for 3 years!

    Corey Taylor- Technical Director
  • AV Specialists, LLC

    Lisa and her team over at Videotel have been a joy to work with.  They provide top-notch presale design and post-sale support. We've successfully deployed their VP71XD multimedia HD video player coupled with interactive features on several projects.  We've also had great luck with their VP90 Industrial Digital Signage Media Players recently deployed for a local car dealership.  It was simple to configure and Videotel's technical support department provided all the support we needed. They even went the extra mile to work directly with our clients to train them in areas we were deficient.   That alone is worth its weight in gold!   I highly recommend giving them a shot on your next project. You won't be disappointed.

    We chose Videotel products for the quality and flexibility of the equipment. We prefer to stay on the cutting edge of interactive experiences, having automation and triggering options readily available is very important to us. Additionally support provided by Videotel has been great. When we’ve needed help with video files Videotel was on the phone with us in just a few minutes. Getting the custom trigger cable made in just a couple of days kept us in a position to beat our project deadline! We appreciate that level of service!

  • Bright Norway AS

    For our upcoming installation for the prestigious New National Museum in Oslo, Norway, Bright was looking for a  product that could meet the clients’ strict requirements for esthetics, function, and quality. We found that the HyperSound speaker met the requirement in full. The narrow wavefront makes the speaker ideal for critical applications like the new National Museum.

  • Ford Piquette Avenue Plant Museum

    The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant is extremely pleased with our new Videotel VP70XD multimedia player.  The player is now providing high-resolution video to our many guests.  It was extremely easy to create the video as a simple export from PowerPoint.  Do not underestimate this powerful device – this is not just a JPG player – it can play countless video formats.   It is also very easy for our staff to start the player each morning – one simple touch to the outlet strip and both the Videotel and the display start right up.  We have more applications for the Videotel players coming up soon!

    We at Pivot Creative Solutions strive to provide unique and engaging environments for our clients. As such, there is often a need for custom and reliable video playback solutions that are interactive and can be quite technical. Whether its needing to trigger 5 video’s at once and keep them in sync, using the useful built-in scheduling feature for digital direction signage, or starting a presentation by inductive touch, we have enjoyed the partnership with the skilled team at Videotel and appreciate their technical expertise and advice.

  • Low Voltage Installations, Inc.

    "We used a VP70XD for a single display for Toyota at Coors Field.  The install was as simple as can be, from opening the box to being up and running took 5 minutes with the customer’s content on a USB drive. We are very satisfied with the results"

    Shawn Tank
  • Siouxland Heritage Museums

    “We started using the DVD version of media player over 10 years ago. With many people opening our museum exhibits on any given day, knowing that the DVD player would always turn on and play was very helpful. We have recently upgraded to the VP71XD industrial digital media player and it was ready out of the package. We also added the harness with pushbuttons and the directions to the program were very simple. From researching to ordering, to purchasing, the company is knowledgeable and great to deal with. Thank you!”

  • Northwood Restaurant

    "We use the Videotel Digital VP70 LTE Commercial Grade Seamless Auto Looping Digital Media Player at one of our establishments located at the Northwood Golf course in Monte Rio California, Northwood Restaurant (Bistro) on a monitor that runs 24/7 with our latest menus and news which we call "Northwood News". We include holiday greetings year around and "Specials" as well as various videos on areas of interest in the place we live such as the coast, wildlife, and vineyards, redwood forests, etc. We selected this player because of its commercial-grade robustness and the fact we frequently have power outages and the Videotel player responds like a champion, we are quite pleased with the performance of this player!"

  • Great Escape Room

    "We here at the Great Room Escape in Layton, Utah strive to provide the most immersive and professional looking games that a customer can experience.  With the release of our latest game, Ghost Hotel we knew that our special effects that would require interactive video needed to be handled by a product that is second to none.  Videotel absolutely met this objective.  From triggerable videos, stunning 4k and everything in between, their product has exceeded every expectation.  Now for all of our interactive video needs, Videotel will be our go-to choice!"


    Greg Andersen-Co-Owner, General Manager
  • Victory Christian Center

  • Montana Real Estate
    We recently purchased the VP90 4K/1080 Industrial Networked Digital Signage Media Players, for signage display for our Real Estate listings.  We specialize in high-end properties, we expect our signage to be the best of the best.  We provide only the highest levels of quality productions to our clientele, and we were not disappointed in these media players.  This system has been flawless!  The video’s we upload, run seamlessly.  Color quality is top notch, no color clarity is lost between what we produce, to what is seen on the screen.  I would recommend this media player to anyone looking for professional, high-quality signage.

  • Healthfleet Ambulance

    "As a medical transportation company, we needed to keep our field staff informed about safety videos and up to the minute messages. To accomplish that we needed several monitors to run continuously. I contacted Videotel, and within just a few days, our system was up and running. The VP90 allowed me to upload videos from anywhere, anytime.”

    General Manager, Ted Brown
  • TRW Development & Management
    "Videotel's team from the purchase, to set up, to the implementation of the VP90 platform was professional and effective creating a seamless and positive experience. We were able to immediately, out of the box, give our high-rise commercial building lobby a face-lift by replacing an antiquated and expensive to update lobby directory with a cost-effective, professional, and modern digital directory. Great product and wonderful people to work with, a real breath of fresh air and highly recommended."
    TRW Development & Management, TR Wilkening
  • DVI Solutions

    "We didn’t purchase the VP71 XD Digital Media Player for our use but rather for one of our clients. They needed a product that would systematically loop corporate videos and marketing materials. The functionality, whereby all they had to do was insert a thumb drive, and the media automatically played with seamless transitions between videos and photos with no disruptive overlay display, proved perfect. They’re beyond pleased. We will happily recommend this product to our other clients."

    Company Representative, Yong Wai Leong
  • Rockwell Collins

    The industrial DVD player from Videotel has been helping my company to reduce several hours of downtime in the test stations that need to reproduce DVD movies continuously for 48 hours.

    Fidel Arrendondo Castro / Facilities Engineer
  • Science Museum of Oklahoma

    Most of our units have been replaced with Videotel equipment, many of which are still operating more than three years, as opposed to the few months we received from regular players.

    Gary Jones / Exhibits Techniican
  • Columbia River Maritime Museum

    We use Videotel units in many of our exhibits to loop video and image files. We currently have several VP70, VP71, HD2600XD, HD2700M units in our displays and even an original DVD unit that has been working for the past eleven years with daily use. The auto-looping on start-up feature is especially valued by our maintenance staff who have to open the museum galleries in the mornings. They know they can turn the power on to the exhibits and not have to “fuss” with the equipment. The reliability and ease of use are strong points to consider when looking for digital video display options. Also, over the years when we have had occasional issues, your technical staff has been very responsive and helpful in finding solutions to our concerns. I recommend Videotel products to my colleagues in the museum field with confidence.

  • Expo Design
    ExpoDesign is a custom creative fabrication shop. We take on projects that are usually large in size and unique in nature.  We used the Videotel products to create two custom interactive displays for a visitors center. The first was a replica build of a well know local theater. As a part of the theater, we used a play on-demand video loop that guests could trigger while having a seat in front of the facade replica. The second application was to provide an experience of driving a go-kart at any of the multiple karting tracks located in the area.  We started with a real go-kart and incorporated a play on-demand video positioned in front of the driver that included go-pro footage to simulate the driving experience. Both interactive came out great and the Videotel product is exactly what we needed to get the projects done right.
