FOCUS Enhancements, which recently acquired Visual Circuits, introduced the Visual Circuits Mantis MG media player at last monthâ€™s Digital Retailing Expo in San Francisco.
The device provides scheduled, live or interactive playback of content in most media formats. It supports up to four high-definition or eight standard-definition independent outpus from a single rack-mount system. The deviceâ€™s modular expansion chassis starts with two output channels and expands both number and type of media outputs as requirements change and grow.
The centralized architecture supports multiple â€śbig boxâ€ť media applications, including satellite and terrestrial multicasts, with 32-bit accelerated graphics output. The Media gateway features include content caching, media management and playback, network monitoring and control and third-party device control.
