I *highly* recommend contacting Randy @ Illusionator. He doesn't have the player on his website (IIRC, he only recently started selling them ala-carte), but he sells a standalone player that I've been EXTREMELY happy with.
I have Ghost Bust's setup in our 2 (parallel) first rooms. The room is fully automated and I was having issues with other brand of video players. Since the APC16+ controller runs the room, it just needs to send a pulse to the video player. Unfortunately the other video players I've tried were "lazy", meaning they might play right away or they might play a second or even 3 after the trigger was sent. Since the room is programmed around the video, this really screwed up sync between everything.
Randy sells a player that is on par with price cost as the others I had tried ($300 if memory serves me), has multiple triggers (with a really nice self adhesive membrane switch included), uses standard CF cards, and they play exactly when you tell them to. Randy was a pleasure to work with as well.
That being said, it looks like Gilderfluke has released some new players since I last looked into them. At the time when I bought these, Gilderfluke's cheapest gear was nearly twice the cost of Randy's unit, that has since changed. I would definitely give Bill a call to discuss the Gilderfluke gear, they manufacture extremely high quality kit.
