HHMP100 User Manual V1.2
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.

HHMP100 User Manual V1.2
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. Wether
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 non stop 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
aluminium 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.

HHMP100 User Manual V1.2
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 aluminium
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.

FULL CONNECTIVITY
HMP100 offers full connectivity capabilities.
HMP100
connects
to
digital
displays through onboard HDMI
and VGA connectors. Through the
HDMI output it is possible to
support DVI displays as well, but
in this case the digital audio is lost.
Both connectors are simultaneously active so as to drive two monitors without the need
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.
elements.
HMP100 supports 10/100BASE-T Ethernet and all the required
protocols to connect to network file systems and retrieve media
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

HHMP100 User Manual V1.2
HMP100 supports USB2.0 Hi-Speed with a bandwidth up to 10 Mbyte/s.
USB interface can be used to extend the local storage through memory
sticks or hard drives. The same interface can support external devices
such as touch screen controllers, DVB tuners or wireless network
connectivity.
When professional displays are connected to HMP100, the standard
RS-232 connector lets you control the behavior of the monitor: On/off,
volume, sources, image properties
It is possible to upload multiple protocols to support different display
models. The required cable can be purchased from SpinetiX

GREEN PRODUCT
HMP100 brings to your screen the highest rendering quality with the lowest power
consumption: only 2 watts. Compared to current digital signage solutions based on PC
platforms you can significantly reduce your power consumption by up to 800kW per year
and per controlled display. For Europe, this represents a direct saving of 1’100.00 € on
the electricity bills!
The compact form factor of HMP100 positively reduces both the recycling and the logistic
costs compared to a PC-based solution.
The long life-time of HMP100 further contributes to optimize the cost/service ratio.

HOW TO ACCESS THE HTTP SERVER OF AN
HMP100 UNIT
If you want access the HTTP server for the first time read the Get Connected guide first.
Otherwise make sure that you have a PC connected to the HMP100 unit through Ethernet
connection and that you have correctly 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.
To validate that you have successfully connected to the HTTP server, you should see the
following screen:

HOW TO CONFIGURE AN HMP100 UNIT TO
CONNECT TO A DHCP NETWORK?
This tutorial explains how to manually configure an HMP100 unit to connect to a specific
network using DHCP for the attribution of network addresses. Note that this procedure
assumes that you can access the HTTP server of the HMP100 unit through the Ethernet
interface.
Requirements:
One HMP100 unit.
A PC from which it is possible to access the HTTP server of the HMP100 unit.
Guide:
1) Access the HTTP server of your HMP100 unit.
•
•
If you have just received an HMP100 unit see the Get Connected guide to learn
how to connect to its HTTP server
If the network configuration of your HMP100 unit has already been modified follow
the suggestions in Access HTTP server.
2) Select the Network configuration page on the left menu under Basic. (see screenshot
below)
•
•
Under Current settings you can read the current network configuration of the
HMP100 unit. In particular you can read the current IP address, the Host name
and the MAC address.
Under Change settings you can configure the network settings of the HMP100
unit.
3) Configure the HMP100 to use DHCP.
•
Set the DHCP radio button instead of Static one.
5) Validate the changes.
•
•
Validate the new network configuration with the Update button.
The changes will be valid once the HMP100 unit has rebooted. If you want to
immediately reboot the unit, check the Reboot now check box before pressing the
Update button.
6) Re-connect to your HMP100.
•
•
28
If your DHCP server is configured to register new computer to the DNS you can
access your HMP100 using the following address http://spx-hmp<serial_number>.
Otherwise you need to find the IP address assigned to your HMP100. This can be
done using the "discover device" feature of the HMD for instance.
HHMP100 User Manual V1.2
Troubleshooting
Once the device has rebooted, you can check the new configuration by accessing the
HTTP server. Note that you need to use the new IP address of the device name this time.
If you are not able to connect to your HMP100 unit after modifying the IP configuration,
please read the following suggestions before contacting the SpinetiX support team.
1) Check the LED on you HMP100 unit.
If the led is blinking once per second in orange colour and the red led is bright on then
your HMP100 unit has been configured to activate DHCP but no DHCP server has been
detected on your network. Make sure your DHCP server is working correctly.
If the green led is blinking fast (several times per second) then your HMP100 unit is in
recovery mode. In this case, unplug and power up again the HMP100 unit. Wait about 1
minute to complete the booting procedure and check the led again. If the HMP100 unit
remains in recovery mode then contact support.
2) You don't have a DHCP server
In the case where your HMP100 unit has been configured to use DHCP but the DHCP
server cannot be contacted by the unit, you need to reinitialize the unit to its factory
default (See Reset to Factory default) and restart the configuration procedure.
