WireSpring Technologies' FireCast
Last month, WireSpring Technologies unveiled its new FireCast media appliance for dynamic digital signage applications. The media appliance features high-quality video output over VGA, S-video and composite signals, and is optimized for signage applications using high-resolution plasma screens, LCD displays and computer monitors.
The media player is optimized for the company’s specialized platform for digital signs and kiosks. The appliance delivers full-motion video in MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, RealVideo or QuickTime, plus animation and still images in Macromedia Flash, GIF, JPEG and PNG formats. Internet connectivity is provided by an integrated Ethernet port, optional dial-up modem or wireless adapter, allowing entire networks of media appliances to be monitored and managed remotely.
It also supports a variety of mounting options, including attaching to the back of plasma and LCD displays. The product’s early adopters are sporting good stores in southern California.
