ViewCast and Enseo Team on Digital Signage Demos at InfoCommTurnkey solutions for government and education applications (June 08, 2005)
ViewCast Corporation and Enseo Inc. will be joining forces at InfoComm 2005 to showcase turnkey solutions for digital signage applications for government and education implementations. The integration of ViewCast's Interactive Video Network (IVN) with an MPEG decoder card from Enseo, to be demonstrated at InfoComm in booth 2285, results in a flexible video communications system that enables progressive applications such as remote arraignment and virtual fieldtrips.
"We're truly excited about working more closely with ViewCast in providing an integrated encoding/decoding end-to-end solution to the market," said Vanessa Ogle, CEO of Enseo. "With the vast capabilities of ViewCast's IVN and our sophisticated MPEG decoding, together we can create intelligent, graphically rich applications for the digital signage industry."
The ViewCast IVN is a visual communication tool that provides complete control, distribution, and management of virtually any video resource. Developed as an open-architecture video switching and distribution system, IVN enables the optimization of video delivery and management across the LAN, WAN, and Internet. The addition of the Enseo Alchemy Gfx digital media engine enables IVN to provide four channels of simultaneous MPEG-2 decoding and a 2D graphics engine for graphics mixing. The Enseo solution supports transparent graphics, overlays, scrolling text, and animated graphics. The combination of ViewCast IVN and the Enseo Alchemy Gfx card makes a compelling video distribution and digital signage platform, one that will be showcased at InfoComm 2005 in Las Vegas.
For the InfoComm 2005 expo, ViewCast is targeting the key markets of government and education with its IVN demonstration. In the government application, ViewCast will highlight how IVN can streamline the arraignment proceedings in a judicial environment. In this video arraignment scenario, the IVN allows a judge to preside over citywide proceedings from a single location, while having the ability to introduce attorneys and other video content into the video call. The inclusion of the Enseo product allows the judge to increase his or her productivity by viewing a "video docket" or scheduling resource that reflects the status of courtrooms and cases that are ready for arraignment proceedings.
The second demonstration that showcases IVN is based in the education environment. In this scenario, IVN is utilized as a visual communications tool that allows teachers to hold classroom-based virtual fieldtrips, an experience where students explore any remote location and have the opportunity to speak with important subject-matter experts who have the knowledge to enrich the learning process. Additionally, the inclusion of the Enseo product enables IVN to go beyond classroom video distribution and security and to deliver digital signage content that highlights the school's events calendar or offers video-based class registration information.
"It's great to be highlighting these two forward-thinking applications to the attendees of InfoComm," said CEO George Platt of ViewCast. "We found Enseo's MPEG-2 decoder cards to be a perfect fit with our IVN, and look forward to working with them on future implementations."
