What is a Media Player?
A Media Player is a small computer that is connected, typically with an HDMI cable, to the TV (Display) that you want your content to appear on. The Media Player (computer) has our Rise Player software installed on it to show your content on the TV (Display).
We offer inexpensive pre-configured Media Players or you can configure your own.
