FOR ITS DAISY ONLINE PLAYER

The PLEXTALK PTX1 PRO gets a new name: PLEXTALK Linio.

Brussels, May 16th 2012 — PLEXTALK, the assistive technology business unit of its parent company SHINANO KENSHI is announcing the PLEXTALK Linio as its DAISY online player to use streaming and download services from the libraries. Linio is a word in Esperanto meaning “online” and therefore alludes to the specific capabilities of this DAISY player.

Features of the PLEXTALK Linio

  1. The PLEXTALK Linio can connect to DAISY Online Delivery Protocol servers (DODP). An increasing number of libraries in Europe offer DODP services to their members.
  2. The PLEXTALK Linio establishes the connection to the bookshelf of a library through the Internet, either Wired or Wireless. Once configured, it will be the default connection.
  3. The PLEXTALK Linio is equipped with PlexVoice. This new technology offers a strong sound quality improvement in case of playback in lower or higher speed.
  4. The PLEXTALK Linio offers a search function on the DODP server (if equipped for it) and can download or stream books.
  5. Next to the DODP services, the PLEXTALK Linio is compatible with previous delivery systems such as CD, SD-card and reads also books from USB flash drives.
