Can a touchscreen monitor (12-15") be set to control a DVD player? (more inside)

I'm setting up a video display as part of a museum exhibit. The display will have four videos from which the visitor can select. In the past, when I've done stuff like this, I've used an all-in-one unit with a touchscreen monitor and a computer. Since this project is a little simpler, and is just going to be playing a DVD (rather than, say, having pictures and text to view), I though it might be easier to just run a DVD player and have it connected to a standalone touchscreen monitor. My question is whether DVD players have an input that can perform similar functions to those performed by the remote, and if so, what form does this input take? Thanks.
