HMP100 User Guide v2.0
INTRODUCTION
SpinetiX HMP100 is the first networked Hyper Media Player appliance dedicated to the
professional digital signage industry. In this field it represents for final users, integrators
and service providers a better alternative of choice to personal and industrial computers
and proprietary dedicated software.
HMP100 offers a standard and simplified way to schedule, combine, update, animate,
stream and display video, audio, vector graphics, pictures and text with low acquisition
and operational costs. The rich set of functionalities offered by HMP100 simplifies the
implementation, management and maintenance of effective and modern audio/visual
communication solutions.
HMP100 is not a simple media player, but an Hyper Media player. It combines in an
embedded solution all the display functionalities of a PC.
What is Hyper Media? As defined by Wikipedia, Hyper Media “is used as a logical
extension of the term hypertext in which graphics, audio, video, plain text and hyperlinks
intertwine to create a generally non-linear medium of information.”
A movie or a video clip is a typical linear content: you watch it from the beginning to the
end. The content in a WEB page is a typical example of non linear content: multiple
media elements are dynamically and interactively consumed. Servers use PHP scripts and
databases to retrieve live content and allow the browser to display the latest information
in an interactive and dynamic way.
The HMP100 allows you to obtain the same result on any digital screen or projector and
display true Hyper Media content exactly as you can do with a PC-based solution.
Thanks to its compact form factor, robust and dedicated hardware, HMP100 turns any
digital display into a network device.
In this short manual we collect the information published on the WEB on HMP100. Read
this information to quickly get started with HMP100 units.

HOW IT WORKS?
SpinetiX HMP100 simplifies the publishing and maintenance of your digital signage
project.
Connected to digital displays through HDMI and VGA, HMP100 is capable of rendering
combinations of media elements from a rich set of formats: audio, video, vector graphics,
pictures and text. HMP100 natively implements the open standards required to schedule,
update, stream, and animate each supported media. Distributing content from a central
location onto a specific display is as easy as publishing a web page.
As a network appliance HMP100 offers plug & play functionalities that simplifies
installation, remote maintenance and monitoring. From anywhere, your network of digital
displays is under control.

HMP100 User Guide v2.0
THE FIRST HYPER MEDIA PLAYER
Only your imagination is the limit because HMP 100 is even more than a multi media
player.
HMP 100 enriches digital signage projects with high quality video, audio, images,
animations and text... all these media can be retrieved by HMP100 from local or network
resources and can be combined and rendered on any type of digital displays following
specific graphical layouts and time schedules.
HMP100 extends the basic functionalities of state of the art media players supporting
Hyper Media content. The term hypermedia is used as a logical extension of the term
hypertext, in which graphics, audio, video, plain text and hyperlinks intertwine to create
a generally non-linear medium of information. HMP100 brings hypermedia content on
digital displays in several ways. For example it is possible to:
access public or private databases and display contextual selected content with
predefined graphical layouts;
aggregate and display RSS news based on key words;
connect to public or private audio/video streaming servers and display live
events, news and entertainment contents;
retrieve from network disks images and videos satisfying specific constraints;
enable all sorts of network interactive services;
schedule which content to display when and where;
stream live audio/video source (IP cam, video servers...)
With all these functionalities brought by HMP100 it has never been so simple to create,
customize, keep up to date and schedule content for your digital signage network!

EASY TO INSTALL AND MAINTAIN
When working with personal computers, everyone has experienced installation and
maintenance troubles. In professional environments, when service must be guaranteed
on a 24/7 basis, installing PC and maintaining them updated, upgraded and in correct
working status is the job of IT specialists and require the on-site intervention of
technicians. This job represents consistent and recurrent expenses that prevent today
the wide adoption of distributed network of digital signs.
HMP100 has been designed to simplify both the installation and the maintenance tasks
by offering:
•
•
•
•
•
Plug & Play
Top reliability
Smallest form factor
Remote monitoring
Updates and upgrades
Plug & Play
HMP100 is a dedicated appliance and thus truly “plug and play”.
You start a HMP100 by plugging in two cables: the power line and the video cable (HDMI
and/or VGA) to the digital display. As soon as it is connected to the power line, HMP100
boots in a few seconds and automatically selects the resolution supported by the
associated digital display so as to start rendering content in less than 1 minute.
When connected to a local network through the RJ45 connector, HMP100 automatically
detects and configures the right parameters without the need of IT specialists. Whether
you choose to activate the DHCP support to automatically configure the network or
specify the IP address and network properties manually, HMP100 minimizes the costs of
setting up networked digital signage projects. When custom configurations are required,
HMP100 offers an intuitive web interface that allows through any web browser to choose
different network and display options.
Top reliability
HMP100 has been designed to satisfy the reliability constraints of nonstop 24/7 display
service and minimize the costs of maintenance that represent today with state of the art
technology more than 40% of the operative costs in digital signage projects.
To achieve this goal, HMP100 hardware design does not include any mechanical parts
such as fans or hard drives. These parts suffer from reliability and limited life-time issues
which become critical when the environment is dusty or without correct air circulation.
Moreover, HMP100 integrates electronics which are designed for the automotive industry
with the top quality and reliability standards and is protected by a solid and compact
aluminum case that reduces the risks of damage when transported and installed.
Finally, HMP100 runs a Linux OS and software applications designed for the HMP100
hardware architecture.

HMP100 User Guide v2.0
Smallest form factor!
HMP100: 200g of high technology concentrate.
HMP100 is the smallest digital signage hyper media player on the market. With only
10.5x9x2.5 cm and 200g, HMP100 simplifies your logistic and installation process.
Whether you integrate it behind your screens, behind your technical floor or under the
roof, HMP100 does not suffer from dust or heat. Its aluminum case guarantees
robustness and protection in tough environments.
Remote Monitoring
The management of a distributed network of HMP100 devices is simplified by the native
support of the SNMP protocol. Through this standard protocol HMP100 devices can
publish all their vital parameters such as storage level and CPU status. There are several
network management software tools that support SNMP protocol. These tools offer
professional graphical frameworks to remote monitoring the status of an individual
HMP100 unit or a complex network of units. It is possible to set threshold on the
monitored variables and associate alarm events to prevent failures and schedule an
efficient maintenance.
In addition to SNMP protocol, HMP100 implements an intuitive web interface. By
connecting to the IP address of a specific HMP100 unit with any web browser, the user
can monitor the status of the unit and even configure specific parameters.
Updates and upgrades
HMP100 can update and upgrade its functionalities. This guarantees a reactive customer
service and the possibility to support new media formats and video standards, new
devices such as touch screens, and new extensions such as wireless network
connectivity. Updates and upgrades are automatically installed on HMP100 from a local
or remote PC using the software packages distributed by SpinetiX. The entire process
limits the downtime of the unit to about 1 minute.

Both connectors are simultaneously active so a
of additional splitters. HDMI is a digital audio/video connector widely adopted by most
digital displays. VGA is an analogue computer video connector also supported by the
majority of digital displays. VGA connector does not carry audio information: for this
reason, an analogue audio connector is provided by the HMP100.
HMP100 is a high-definition ready
device: it can render content on
digital displays with resolution up to
1280x720 at 60Hz (720p resolution)1.
The Maximum resolution supported
by HMP100 is:
• 1280x720 (16:9)
• 1024x640 (16:10)
• 1024x768 (4:3)
HMP100 connects to the network through an onboard RJ-45 connector.
Each HMP100 unit has a unique MAC address that allows to identify the
unit and thus the associated display.
HMP100 supports 10/100BASE-T Ethernet and all the required protocols
to connect to network file systems and retrieve media elements.
In particular:
• Ethernet 10/100 Mbit/s,
• IPv4, DHCP or fixed address
• HTTP configuration server, password protected
• HTTP client for web content retrieval
• WebDAV server, password protected
• SNMPv1/v2c,
• NTP

Otherwise make sure that you have a PC connected to the HMP100 unit through Ethernet
connection and that you have correctly configured
configured the PC and/or the HMP100 unit to be
on the same network with the right IP address.
Execute on the PC a Web browser such as Internet Explorer or Fire Fox. There are few
ways to access the HTTP server of a specific HMP100 unit.
1. You know the IP address of the HMP100 unit: then type http://<ip address> in
the location bar of your web browser.
2. You know under which name the HMP100 unit has been registered on the DNS
server. This registration can be done manually by the DNS server administrator
and in this case the name of the unit is arbitrary. In this case write http://<DNS
name of the unit>/ in the location bar of your web browser.
3. You know that the HMP100 unit is configured in DHCP mode and that the DHCP
server is configured to dynamically register the names in the DNS server. In this
case the name of the HMP100 unit will have the following predefined pattern:
spx-hmp-<serial number>, where <serial number> is the 12 digit serial
number that you find on the label below the HMP100 unit. In this case write
http://spx-hmp-<serial number>/ in the location bar of your web browser.
If you do not know any of the above information, then you may retrieve the IP address
and the name of the HMP100 unit using the Hyper Media Director software. This software
shall be executed on the PC which is connected through the Ethernet to the HMP100 unit.

Using a network server with HMP100
This tutorial explains how to configure your HMP100 unit to use a network server as
content source using its administration HTTP server.
The HMP100 can use an HTTP server as the source for the displayed multimedia files. In
this case the HMP100 will frequently check for modification on the server. The internal
storage will be used to cache some of media files from the server. If you require your
HMP100 to download periodically the content of a network server to its internal storage,
please go to the Content pull mode page.
1. In the main page of the HTTP server of your unit, select in the left menu the
Media Sources item that you find under Administration. The current settings
will be shown on your browser.
2. Change the Primary source to be equal to Network Project
3. Enter the URI of your network project
The HMP100 will open the index.svg file in the root of the entered URI.
Note: you can use HTTP or HTTPS servers
4. Press Apply
You can specify a Fallback source in case your network server cannot be reached by the
HMP100 unit.
34
HMP100 User Guide v2.0
If your server requires a username and a password, you can enter them using the
Advanced dialog page as described in Network credentials.
Content access modes
When connected to the network, HMP100 can be used to access content to be displayed
in three different modes:
•
•
•
Push mode: Files are pushed to the HMP100 using a WebDAV server. For
example, the HMD uses the push mode to publish an Hyper Media Project to a
HMP100 unit.
Client mode: The HMP100 accesses files from a remote HTTP server. The internal
storage will be used as a cache. Configuring the client mode is explained in Use
network servers.
Pull mode: Files are copied periodically from a remote server to the local storage
of the HMP100.
If the Push and Client modes are the simpler publishing mechanisms they might not fit to
all network architecture needs. In particular, when network security constraints are
introduced, it may be necessary to request the HMP100 units to retrieve content or
publish logs at specific timings. In this case the Pull mode must be used.
To be activated, the Pull mode requires specific actions. In this section and its
subsections we document specifically this mode.
35

The Pull mode
The Pull mode is configured
Administration/Pull mode.
through
the
HTTP
configuration
interface,
under
The Pull mode can be used bidirectional to:
•
•
Automatically publish files to the HMP100.
Each time the HMP100 has been scheduled to update the content of its local
storage, it will connect to the specified server, check for changes, and download
all modified files.
Upload logs and previews to a remote WebDAV server.
The publish action of the Pull mode can be used with WebDAV server or with standard
HTTP servers. In this last case an XML files describing the content of the server must be
available. The Pull mode timings can be configured either directly from the HTTP interface
or using iCalendar files.
There are two ways to configure the Pull mode on a HMP100 unit:
•
•
36
Using the simple HTTP interface. This option is easy to configure, but has some
limitations. For example, it forces a daily project publishing at a specific timing.
Moreover, the options for uploading logs are limited.
Using iCalendar schedule files: This option gives you full control over the Pull
mode of the HMP100, but requires an external tool to create the iCalendar files
(Mozilla Sunbird for instance).
HMP100 User Guide v2.0
How to configure HMP100 to use serial port
The SpinetiX HMP100 can control external appliances using its serial port (RS232)
interface. This type of interface is supported in particular by most professional monitors
to allow switch on/off operations or image configurations.
To control an appliance trough the serial port interface you need the following:
•
•
•
•
•
A protocol file for your appliance.
Testing and debugging your protocol file can be done on a PC using the Serial Port
Protocol Studio application.
The protocol file must be uploaded to the HMP100 and enabled.
You need to build or purchase the serial port cable to connect your appliance to
the HMP100.
Special SpinetiX elements <auxCmd> need to be included into your content to
control the appliance.
For more information on controlling appliance with the serial port, you can check the
online documentation for the serial port or the RS232 section of the FORUM.
Enabling RS232
Enabling the RS232 support is done using the HTTP administration interface and the
Serial Port menu as shown in the image below.
By default the serial port control is disabled. It is enabled by selecting a protocol file in
the Protocols drop-box. Choose either pre-loaded files designed by SpinetiX (identified by
the prefix [sys] before the name of the protocol), or files that you have uploaded using
the Upload function.
37
© 2009 SpinetiX S.A. All rights reserved.
Configuring RS232
The drop down menu below shows an HMP100’s configuration where the following
protocol files can be selected:
•
•
•
•
No protocol files, the RS232 interface is disabled ([disabled])
A system version of the Sharp Aquos protocol ([sys]sharp_aquos)
An uploaded protocol file for the LG LF65 screen (LG LF65)
An uploaded protocol file for the Sharp Aquos monitors (sharp_aquos)
Once a protocol file is selected, you might choose to change the serial port configuration
or to enable automatic power on and power off of the attached screen.
Checking the Control monitor power check box will force the HMP100 to send the
PowerOn and PowerOff commands at specified times (in 24 hours format) regardless of
the content uploaded on the device.
In the example below the HMP100 has been configured to use the LG LF65 protocol, and
automatically turn the screen ON at 8:00 and OFF at 20:00.
