Has Pioneer exited the industrial DVD market?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Good morning,

I have an older Pioneer DVD-V7400 Industrial DVD player, at the office, that no longer works. I decided it was probably time to upgrade anyway, but still need the "industrial" capabilities. I see they have the V5000, V6000 and V8000 listed on their website (http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Professional/Pro-Video) but I can't seem to find them available for sale anywhere!

Anyone out there know if there are new ones coming out, or if I am just going to have to work with consumer crap and spend a fair amount on adapting HDMI to RGBHV?

Thanks,

Jeff

Having a hard time finding info on the Pioneer products. Could be the end of the line. Perhaps this would work:
TASCAM DV-D01U 1-rackspace DVD Player w/RS-232 Control Port
http://www.amazon.com/TASCAM-DV-D01U-1-rackspace-Player-Control/dp/B000TUEWC8

Do you really need a DVD player? Why not use a computer? More versatility with regard to content format and displaying other things.

It's possible the OP has some legacy hardware that needs an analog connection.
The tascam has the same output ports and is built like a tank.
Pioneer v7400
back panel:


Tascam dvdv01u
back panel:


He might have to pick up some adapters - the Pioneer had a BNC connection. RCA to BNC needed for the Tascam. Unknown what the other equipment is the DVD player is outputting to.

I would think you could still find at least one video card that outputs component video. Maybe not.

There are also operational concerns. Sometimes you need a simple "put the disk in and play" solution. Computer based DVD and BluRay players are difficult to make simple and reliable. Bootup time is another possible issue in a commercial setting.
