Yes, 30 mins of video is no problem to the signage player. The quality and performance of your player will depend on you signage players computer specs.

Our entry level mediabox plays HD videos with no problems.

Our system is hardware independent. This means you can use any compatible PC you want.
We recommend you use our mediaBOX which is available here:

But of course you are free to use any Windows or Mac powered device.
As for hardware specifications, it all depends on what you will be running. But for good performance with Videos and SWF animation, we recommend an Intel powered 2.6GHz Dual Core2 or better with 2GB of memory and at least 40GB storage.

And our system also supports Android Tablets/Devices and soon iOS and SmartTVs.

MediaSignage officially supports all of the Flash Media Formats which include:

Video Formats: Flash video FLV (H.263), MPEG-4 (H.264) ,MOV, M4A, MP4V, 3GP, 3G2, AAC (HE, LC), SWF

We HIGLY recommend you use FLV (Flash Video) with H.264 encoding as it supports
hardware acceleration and will run on the GPU (not CPU) and give the best performance

Animation: SWF
Flash CS can produce SWFs. SWF are vector based and are rendered on the CPU and
so they are highly CPU intensive, especially when ran in high resolution (large screen division).

However, you should note, due to the hundreds of different encoders available today, it is possible that some of your files may not run properly in your signage presentation.

That is why we highly recommend you use a Freeware utility like Super to convert your media files to standard format including FLV, PNG or SWF. This will eliminate any encoder /decoder issues you may experience. You can read our conversion format document here:
