Black Box™ - Multi-Triggering HD Media Player
We've made our great HD Media Player EVEN BETTER!!!

Introducing the new 2019 model of the Black Box™ Multi-Triggering HD Media Player. Now you can use any of our "triggering" Halloween visual FX products WITHOUT the need of a DVD, or Blu-Ray / DVD-Player. You can now run these products in 100% digital format.

The new 2019 model boast several all-new and very important features and upgrades (full list below) that now make our HD Media Player even easier to use and added functions to improve the performance overall.


1.) Button Interrupt: Previously, when the media player was triggered (button pressed), the corresponding triggered video would play. If you pressed the button again during that video playing, the video would restart over again. We have changed this feature. Now, if a button is pressed, the corresponding triggered video will play, and if you press the same button again, the player will now ignore the "same" button being pressed. You can only re-trigger the same video once the player has returned to the main looping video again via the same button. That being said, you can interrupt the current triggered video during playback by pressing ANY of the other 9 buttons. So if you trigger a video, and it starts playing the corresponding video, if you press the same button, the player will ignore the input and continue playing the same video until it is done. If you press a different button, the player will jump to the new input buttons video.

The great news is that this now eliminates the need for an external timer / circuit board to ignore the same input. The player now has this all built-in.

2.) Trigger Input Devices: Hi-Rez Designs now offers 2 additional ways you can trigger a video with this player. You now have 3 choices! 1. Standard Button input (2 buttons included - more can be added below), 2. Pre-Wired Motion Sensor input, 3. Pre-Wired Retro-Reflective Beam Sensor input.

Using the pulldown menu below, you can now add a Pre-Wired Motion Sensor with 10' connection cable and power supply or a Pre-Wired Retro-Reflective Beam Sensor with 10' connection cable and power supply to your order, making it super-simple to add these high-quality sensors to your setup.

*** Please note: The Hi-Rez Designs - Pre-Wired Motion Sensor and Retro-Reflective Beam Sensor are the only 'approved' additional input devices for the Black Box™ Multi-Triggering HD Media Player.

3.) Player is now set to default 3.5mm mini audio jack output: In many cases, you want to connect external speakers to the HD Media Player to get much "bigger" sound instead of the standard TV speakers via the HDMI cable going directly to the TV. The player is now set to the default of sending the audio of your video out the 3.5mm mini audio jack output jack on the back of the player. This also comes in handy if you are also using the Hi-Rez Relay Decoder with the player. If you WANT to change the sound output to go out the HDMI cable to the TV, simply change the 'Settings' in the players 'Setup Menu' to HDMI Output.


1.) Upgraded firmware / software to a "folder structure" system - folders 1 - 10. (see #2 for more information)

2.) You can trigger MULTIPLE videos now. Add up to 10 different videos to your SD card or USB stick +1 (or several) main looping video(s) that will play while the unit is "not triggered". This looping video(s) will play continuously until 1 of the 10 trigger buttons is pressed. The player will then go to the folder corresponding with the button pressed (i.e.: Button 2 is pressed, player will go to folder named "2") and then play all the videos back to back that are in that single folder. If there is only 1 video in that corresponding folder, the player will just play the 1 video, then return to the main looping video. If that corresponding folder has multiple videos, it will play them all, then return to the looping video.

3.) The Black Box™ now comes in a black aluminum case with side mounting holes so you can "mount" this player wherever you want.

4.) The Black Box™ now comes with an optical audio out for using a fiber optic cable to connect to an amplifier that decodes AC3 and DTS Surround Sound formats.

5.) The Black Box™ now comes with an additional mini STEREO jack output that you can use a standard mini STEREO plug to connect to an amplifier or speaker system.

6.) Many MAC users were experiencing the problem that “invisible” junk system files were being copied from their computer to the SD card or USB stick that that Black Box™ Media Player was showing on the input device that were unable to play. These were files that started with a “.” that a MAC computer uses for desktop icons and system files, but the Black Box™ would see them as un-playable media files.

The previous solution was to put the SD card or USB stick into a PC computer and deleting all the un-necessary files that started with a “.” and then re-insert the card or stick into the media player.

We have now added the capability to DELETE these files right in the Black Box™ Media Player itself by using the OSD button on the remote while viewing you file list. You can now select unwanted files and DELETE them easily.

Additionally, we have also built in the feature to COPY or MOVE files from a SD card to USB stick or visa-versa within the media player as well. So if you want to use an SD card with the media player, but only have a USB port in your computer, you can put your media files on an USB stick, insert it into the Black Box™ Media Player AND insert an SD card into the player, you can copy the files from the USB stick to the SD card within the Player.

If you want / need an HD media player that simply loops video(s) continuously and do not need "TRIGGERABLE / PROGRAMMABLE" functions, please click here: The Black Box: Looping Full HD Media Player Repeater.

Unlike "other" media players currently on the market, this media player DOES NOT have a black screen (no image) appear on the screen when the video has ended, looping or being triggered. Our player holds the last frame of the playing video on the screen for approximately .2 seconds (1/10 second) before it begins playing the video again or starts a triggered video.

OPTIONAL: 2GB SD Media Cards for storing your video playback files can be found here. 2GB SD Card sold separately.
