Modular System of Player Configuration
Dune HD Smart players allow to create custom configurations based on the primary (head) unit like
Dune HD Smart B1/H1/D1 and several optional extension modules of choice, which can be combined to
form an integrated player.
The Dune HD Smart player itself is a head unit which can be extended at user's desire with extension
modules, such as the following:
Dune HD Smart HE (adds the option for easy installation of SATA 3.5" HDD with hot swap
feature).
Dune HD Smart ME (adds the option for installing different additional modules, in particular, for
reception of satellite, cable or digital terrestrial TV).
Extension modules can work exclusively with the head unit (Dune HD Smart player) and use a common
control system, implemented via the head unit. The number of connected modules may vary in a wide
range: the user can compile his/her own Dune HD Smart system of e.g. two, three and even six
components.
In order to group SMART devices by 2 or 3 horizontally, special mounts can be used. For example, a
group of 3 modules, including the head unit, combined this way, will comprise a new player of a
standard size like the model Dune HD Max.
Besides, grouping the required number of modules allows to supersede the functionality of Dune HD
Max, providing more flexibility at the same time. In particular, the modular approach provides the
possibility to group modules in any order at any time depending on user's demands, as well as
replacing (upgrading) particular modules instead of replacing the entire set of equipment.
