Cisco Digital Media System:
Cisco Digital Media Player 4305G
®
The Cisco Digital Media System (DMS) is a comprehensive suite of digital signage,
Enterprise TV, and desktop video applications that allow companies to use digital media
to increase sales, enhance customer experience, and facilitate learning. Support from the
broad Cisco partner ecosystem of deployment, solution development, and content
creation partners helps ensure a successful digital media implementation.
The Cisco Digital Media Player 4305G (DMP 4305G) is an integrated component of the Cisco
Digital Media System for Cisco Digital Signage and Cisco Enterprise TV.
Cisco Digital Media Player 4305G
The Cisco Digital Media Player 4305G (Figure 1) is a highly reliable IP-based digital media player
that handles display and playback of compelling, rich digital media—including high-definition live
broadcasts or on-demand video, Flash animations, graphics, text tickers, and other web content—
across a network of digital signs.
The Cisco Digital Media Player 4305G is fully manageable as a standalone device; however, as
part of the integrated Cisco Digital Signage and EnterpriseTV offerings, it is a powerful,
customizable digital media publishing endpoint. Using the Cisco Digital Media Manager, the
centralized management system component of the Cisco Digital Media System, you can flexibly
and remotely publish centralized content to networked digital displays. You can attach the Cisco
Digital Media Player to virtually any on-premise digital display at any location—for example, in a
branch-office bank, retail store, or a break room or lobby—across any geography.

Data Sheet
The Cisco Digital Media Player 4305G supports sophisticated functions, including fully
customizable and dynamic playlists; the Cisco Enterprise TV program guide; division of screen real
estate into multiple addressable regions; high-definition (HD) media playback; and remote
management of digital displays—on/off, volume, contrast, and brightness. The Cisco Digital Media
Player 4305G has a very small form factor, weighing less than 1 pound (0.45 kg) and measuring
7.5 x 5 x 1.5 inches (190 x 127 x 38 mm).
Key Features and Benefits
The Cisco Digital Media Player 4305G integrates with the Cisco Digital Media Manager to deliver:
●
Flexible, real-time publishing: You can instantly publish and update content across
individual or groups of digital displays, and control and schedule the frequency and duration
of content playback (day-parting).
●
Broadcast Enterprise TV: You can control IP-based broadcast television through the Cisco
Digital Media Player Remote Control and on-screen program guide.
●
Low ongoing operational costs and ease of use: The management interface was designed
with the nontechnical user in mind to keep the level of required training low.
●
Speed of deployment: Simplified IT installations that require little additional network
expense reduce the burdens of deployment and maintance commonly placed on IT.
●
Reliability and power of the network: Tightly integrated with the network, the Cisco Digital
Media Player uses the reliability and security of the underlying network as a platform; this
appliance-based solution has no moving parts, avoiding security and maintenance
concerns associated with PCs.
Cisco Digital Media Player Remote Control
The Cisco Digital Media Player Remote Control (Figure 2) is a small-form-factor, highly functional
device optimized to support interactivity with the Cisco Digital Media Player 4305G and 4400G
systems. This remote allows you to navigate and select the channels and on-demand videos
through the Cisco Enterprise TV on-screen program guide.
