A product designed by MagicBox
, Inc. for digital signage. Basically, all it is is a PC running BeOs
continuously running a slide show that you design on your Windows-based PC
. The slide show is made using proprietary
software and can't be converted from common presentation software such as Power Point
. The show is then published to the box over modem, serial cable, network, or removable media.
It comes in a 2U case with a hard drive, CD-ROM and zip drives. It outputs video to VGA, S-Video
, RCA, and Composite. The Aavelin has the ability to control VCR's and DVD players. Unfortunately, the bugs have not yet been worked out of the controlling program.
