Greenville, S.C. - A multimedia system designed for training and user-authentication systems is built around a flat-panel display.
The DisplayPac-Multi from Computer Dynamics Inc. is powered by a single-board computer equipped with an 850-MHz Pentium III and up to 1 Gbyte of SDRAM. It offers a suite of I/O, video/audio playback, and capture and archiving features, along with a 20.1-inch 1,280 x 1,024-pixel thin-film transistor LCD with resistive touchscreen overlay. The system is housed in a compact plastic enclosure that can be mounted on the arm.
Two hardware MPEG encoder circuits allow the capture and compression of dual audio/video streams from an integrated camera and microphone. Playback of stored MPEG streams (from an internal 20-Gbyte SCSI hard drive or a network) is accomplished through a hardware MPEG decoder, and allows applications requiring animation.
The compact SVHS camera is mounted behind a lens in the top of the unit. The system features auto backlight control and light-compensation mode. The microphone uses an anti-echo circuit to provide audio-recording time sequenced with the video capture. A 16-bit Sound Blaster Pro-compatible audio controller with 7.5-watt/channel amplifier and two magnetically shielded 30-W speakers are included.
The system measures 21 x 21 x 5 inches and is priced at $14,995, with delivery from stock to 30 days.
