Minneapolis, MN--September 27, 1996--Visual Circuits Corp. (Minneapolis, MN) announced that it has commenced volume shipment of a MPEG add-in solution for PCs that enables playback of four simultaneous, independent MPEG streams.
4-ReelTime/P is the first four-channel MPEG-1 playback board for the PCI-Bus. The unique drivers also allow for operating multiple 4-ReelTime/P boards in the same system, thus enabling more than four simultaneous MPEG streams from one PC platform.
Broadcast quality composite and S-video outputs are provided on the 4-ReelTime/P, along with CD-quality stereo audio. The video outputs can be genlocked to an external source for use with mixing and overlay devices. MPEG audio/video demultiplexing is performed in the hardware for guaranteed synchronization with no increase in CPU overhead.
An MCI driver for Windows 3.1, Windows 95, and Windows NT is included for use in application development. The Windows Medial Player can be used directly with the card.
The 4-ReelTime/P is list priced at $1,395. Initial shipments of the 4-ReelTime/P began in June with volume being reached in September.
