Tightrope Media Systems Announces Carousel 6.2 With International Weather, Micro Player Licenses And Enhanced Video Mode

Tightrope Media Systems has released Carousel 6.2, a major upgrade of the company's extremely popular, web-centric digital signage solution. Carousel 6.2 includes several major additions to existing features as well as a few brand new offerings built on the new code in 6.2.

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, March 17, 2011 - Dynamic weather has always been a major feature in Carousel and with Carousel 6.2, Tightrope is introducing International Weather, providing licensed weather content for customers across the globe. Carousel now makes use of browser enabled location services to automatically locate a customer's position. This new feature supports international postal codes and will automatically choose Celsius or Fahrenheit temperatures based on the customer's location.

Tightrope is also now including an AverMedia video input card that provides both High Definition and Standard Definition external video input to a Carousel player using HDMI, component or composite video inputs. And, now, each and every Carousel 310 model Server, Solo, or Player, is pre-installed with a video input card. According to Tightrope Co-Founder Andrew Starks, the AverMedia video input card is a fantastic solution for bars, restaurants, or any public location. "Carousel 6.2 will position the external video input into any zone in the channel, or if a customer wishes, to a full screen. Because this solution supports full 1080p HD, it is perfect for use in restaurants and bars paired with a live sports broadcast in a typical 'L' formatted display", he said. "This external video input device complements Carousel's support of streaming video, and of video file playout perfectly", he added.

Carousel 6.2 also introduces a low cost "Micro Player" license for simple digital signage applications such as room signs. The Micro Player software was built for Linux based machines and contains a simplified version of the Carousel Display Engine. Future plans call for the release of a hardware and software package called the Snap Player (monitor, CPU and Micro License all in one), utilizing the new Micro Player license and software.

Carousel 6.2 also includes a new graphics mode recommended for systems that primarily utilize video and Flash on their Carousel screens. It has been designed to allocate more graphics resources to multimedia processes for applications that are video and Flash intensive. The graphics mode also features a new "swoop up" crawl.
