About Our Speakers

All LCD video brochures include a 30mm, 8ohm - 1.5 - 2 WATT speaker. Volume is controlled by up and down buttons (if present). Overall volume capabilities are somewhat determined by the level at which the audio is recorded.

Video Specifications

When creating your video, be sure to output the audio in mono (not stereo). Some sequencers have compatibility issues with our on-board graphics processor.

For best results, do not output a higher resolution than the native LCD's resolution . For example, our 7" video brochures work well with an output of 800 x 480, 16:9 aspect ratio (see above) with an H.264 output format.

Video playback is controlled by naming the video files in an alphanumeric fashion. For example, "apple.mp4" will play before "oranges.mp4" and "1.mp4" will play before "2.mp4".

MediaWrite's standard non-customized button functionality uses multiple files in order to seek previous and next video files within the "video" folder.

Video Loading

MediaWrite video brochures come with their own USB charging and loading cable. You can use the included cable to load your video on to your video brochure (similar to a thumb drive).

For mail house services and large runs, MediaWrite can pre-load the video for you. Contact us to learn more.

Splash Screen

All MediaWrite, LLC video brochures have a MediaWrite splash screen indicating the video is loading. Without this page, your brochure's LCD would appear blank for 1-2 seconds while the video loads. You can download the splash page or request *no splash page at all.

*No splash or custom splash pages have an additional cost.

Video/*Slide-show Functionality

Video file support includes; .MP4 and .MOV files. Video and image files play in alphabetic order, so "a.mp4" will play before "b.mp4" and "1.jpg" will display before "2.jpg". Playback is determined by the presence of a "video folder" in the root directory with an .mp4, .mov or .avi file extension. The presence of a video file activates the normal video operation mode, absence activates slide-show mode if at least one .jpg is present in the pictures/photos directory (if factory configured).

Slide Show Mode

MediaWrite™ LCD video brochures also support slide show modes (slide show must be specified when ordered). The presence of a video folder with a supported file - means the video brochure plays the video(s) and disregards any images in the photo/picture folders. If your unit(s) has a "photo/picture" folder present, then it supports the slide show mode.

Video brochures should display images at either 16:9 ratio (if possible without distortion) or be scaled down proportionally to fit.

Images in the photo folder will play for 3 approximately seconds each and will auto-size to fill the screen. In sideshow mode, each image should display for 2.5 to 3 seconds before automatically going to the next image. Transition is a simple fade or wipe and can not be altered.

Supported audio formats for slide show mode are MP3 or .WAV and will play if a file with those extensions are present in the music directory.

Note: MediaWrite video brochures are configured for slide-show functionality only upon request when ordered.

Button Functionality

Our video brochures can be ordered with or without buttons. Because of their simple open & play - on/off operation, you may find that your application does not require them.

In addition, we can customize the button print for your LCD video brochures. Your video brochures come standard with 5 buttons (see functionality below). The print, or the print and buttons can be added to, modified or eliminated completely without affecting functionality.

Button Functions for Video:

  1. PREV/REW video (previous video, REW if held)
  2. NEXT/FF video (next video, FF if held)
  3. PLAY/PAUSE (video)
  4. VOLUME DOWN (video)
  5. VOLUME UP (video)

Button Functions for Slide-show (must be requested):

  1. PREV Image
  2. NEXT Image
  3. PLAY/PAUSE (slide-show)
  4. VOLUME DOWN (audio)
  5. VOLUME UP (audio)

Note: MediaWrite default buttons are configured as above using standard VCR type icons (not required).

About U.S. Made Brochures

MediaWrite™ Video Brochures are printed, die-cut and assembled right here in the U.S.A. This enables us to ship custom print video brochures within 72 hours (restrictions apply) and fulfill very short run orders that would otherwise be cost prohibitive.

MediaWrite's U.S. 16pt and 24pt papers are printed using a VuTek GS 3750 printer or other digital printer. Our U.S. made brochures offer heavier clay-coated paper featuring a visibly superior white brightness than what is offered offshore.

Some video brochures models may not be available within 72 hours (call for details).

Note: Large runs of 250+ video brochures are normally manufactured offshore due to our offshore factory's production capabilities.

Shipping & Storage

Video Brochure Shipping

Due to an embedded magnetic switch that allows the video brochure to automatically play when opened, video brochures must be alternated when stacked to "keep them quiet" during shipping and storage. Orientating video brochures in the exact same direction may cause interruptions in the magnetic field that shuts off each video brochure, "fooling" the video brochure in to thinking its cover is opened. This in turn drains the battery.

Note: If further clarification or translation pertaining to packaging and shipping is required, please contact MediaWrite, LLC.

Shipping Guidelines

All MediaWrite video brochures are shipped using corrugated boxes with 1/4" to 1/2" foam padding to protect the video brochures, LCDs and other components from damage.

To protect your video brochures when individually shipped, place them in a Jiffy Rigi™ mailer or minimally a bubble wrap pouch. MediaWrite, LLC and its resellers/customers may leave the inner bubble wrap untaped until the video is loaded for final delivery.

Brochures are not to be shipped with more than 50 units per shipping container. When shipping more than 25 brochures per container, use a minimum double-wall, 200lbs corrugated shipping container. Video brochure edges must be protected in their boxes using a 1/8" - 1/2" protective foam.

Kiosk Mode (Available 2016)

Your video brochure will go into Kiosk mode when left opened while the USB cable is inserted, otherwise if you do not open the video brochure when inserting the cable, it goes into charge mode (without playing).

*Some features listed above are not available on all models.
