    DVD Player Trigger addition

    We are adding several different video based scares into our haunt this year and we are needing to make a DVD player activate on a motion or IR. We have one that we obtained by buying a package deal but now we need to make a couple more. Anyone have any plans on how to do this with an inexpensive DVD or DVP. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Actually the first ones to have a triggeedr DVD player was Fright Nights ghosts Busts.

    The best way to go is with digital.....the bright sign that is used by Pale Night on thier Zombie Attack.

    All DVD players will eventually fail. Especially the way haunts use them. If you have the money get digital repeaters. They will be worth the piece of mind as well as the flexibility of effects and programming they offer.

    Another option...

    We offer a triggerable digital video player with 7 triggers on it. Also plays MP3.

    Seems like I've seen Hauntedprops.com as having good repor, but not sure. They've got them on sale for $129. Cheapest I've found.

    Dvd

    I bought 2 of these from Hi-Rez. I got them right away and I am sure they will work fine.

    I know this is kind of an old thread, but I found these dvd players and they seem to be the cheapest.

    Does anyone have any opinions on this vendor?

    Thanks,

    I'd recommend BrightSign's units: http://www.brightsign.biz/products/hd410.php

    I also found these dvd players: http://www.division-6.com/products/d...gger-input.php

    The nice thing, besides the trigger input is that the units have no screensaver and no (play/pause) messages that appear as the unit is used.

    Thanks all for the info and advice. I just want everyone to know that I used a SONY DVD player as Sysasi suggested and a few item from radio shack and they work great.

    Thanks,

    I have also converted to ViewStream and BrightSign units. That said, I have 3 DVD players already converted with play and stop jacks. You can connect step mat's, hand triggers, controllers, relays, etc to them. Basically any contact closure. 2 were never used, 1 has a season of use on it. I could likely be persuaded to let them go pretty cheap.

    I use Viewstream 300 units for triggered video. They have worked great for us.
