Introduction

The TB40 is a new generation of multimedia player created by NovaStar for full-color LED displays. This multimedia player integrates playback and sending capabilities, allowing users to publish content and control LED displays with a computer, mobile phone, or tablet. Working with our superior cloud-based publishing and monitoring platforms, the TB40 enables users to manage LED displays from an Internet-connected device anywhere, anytime.

Support for multi-screen synchronous playback and synchronous and asynchronous modes makes this multimedia player a perfect fit for a wide range of applications.

Thanks to its reliability, ease of use, and intelligent control, the TB40 becomes a winning choice for commercial LED displays and smart city applications such as fixed displays, lamp-post displays, chain store displays, advertisement players, mirror displays, retail store displays, door head displays, shelf displays, and much more.

Features

Output

  • Loading capacity up to 1,300,000 pixels
    Maximum width: 4096 pixels
    Maximum height: 4096 pixels
  • 2x Gigabit Ethernet ports
    All these four ports serve as primary by default.
    Users can also set two as primary and the other
    two as a backup.
  • 1x Stereo audio connector
    The audio sample rate of the internal source is
    fixed at 48 kHz. The audio sample rate of the
    external source supports 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, or
    48 kHz. If NovaStar’s multifunction card is used
    for audio output, audio with a sample rate of 48
    kHz is required.
  • 1x HDMI 1.4 connector
    Maximum output: 1080p@60Hz, support for
    HDMI loop

Input

  • 1x HDMI 1.4 connector
    In synchronous mode, video sources input from this connector can be scaled to fit the entire screen automatically.
  • 2x sensor connectors
    The audio sample rate of the internal source is
    fixed at 48 kHz. The audio sample rate of the

Control

  • 1x USB 3.0 (Type A) port
    Allows for USB playback and firmware upgrade
    over USB.
  • 1x USB (Type B) port
    Connects to the control computer for content
    publishing and screen control.
  • 1x Gigabit Ethernet port
    Connects to the control computer, a LAN or
    public network for content publishing and screen
    control.

Performance

  • Powerful processing capacity
    Quad-core ARM A55 processor @1.8 GHz
    − Support for H.264/H.265 4K@60Hz video
    decoding
    − 1 GB of onboard RAM
    − 16 GB of internal storage
  • Flawless playback
    2x 4K, 6x 1080p, 10x 720p, or 20x 360p video
    playback

Functionality

  • All-round control plans
    − Enables users to publish content and control screens from a computer, mobile phone, or tablet
    − Allows users to publish content and control
    screens from anywhere, anytime.
    − Allows users to monitor screens from
    anywhere, anytime.
  • Switching between Wi-Fi AP and Wi-Fi STA
    − In Wi-Fi AP mode, the user terminal connects to the built-in Wi-Fi hotspot of the TB40. The default SSID is “AP+Last 8 digits of SN” and the default password is “12345678”.
    − In Wi-Fi STA mode, the user terminal and
    the TB40 are connected to the Wi-Fi hotspot of a router.
  • Synchronous and asynchronous modes
    − In asynchronous mode, the internal video source works. 
    − In Wi-Fi STA mode, the user terminal and
    the TB40 are connected to the Wi-Fi hotspot of a router.
  • In synchronous mode, the video source
    input from the HDMI connector works.
  • Synchronous playback across multiple screens
    NTP time synchronization
    − GPS time synchronization (The specified
    4G module must be installed.)
    − RF time synchronization (The specified RF
    module must be installed.)
  • Support for 4G modules
    The TB40 ships without a 4G module. Users
    have to purchase 4G modules separately if
    needed.
    Network connection priority: Wired network > WiFi network > 4G network
    When multiple types of networks are available,
    the TB40 will choose a signal automatically
    according to the priority.
