Undoubtedly the smallest digital signage player we’ve seen on the market – the size is 105(W) x 26(H) x 83(D) mm
. The Spinetix [pronounced as “spenetix” or something like that] player is one great little unit and we’re currently testing and reviewing the product so watch this space. Apparently the unit has lifetime warranty!!!

Here’s some pictures of the unit.
