Advanced 2D & 3D display and media playback
A key feature of distributed Midas Viewpoint systems is the System Control Centre Interface (click to view) and the Control Module which enables an open-architecture information display system to operate across a large number of networked ePCs. In large-scale commercial or industrial applications, ePCs can be installed within Integrated Colour Monitors (ICM), allowing each ICM to display the same or varied information, switching between display formats at the click of a button or automated by a predetermined schedule. Midas Viewpoint also provides the functionality to automatically retrieve data from specialised data systems, such as airline, hotel and banking information services.
Midas Viewpoint allows users to determine their own criteria for display functionality. ePC media systems display Midas display forms, using freeform templates, supporting rich graphics and live-video, incorporating static and dynamic information automatically retrieved from Oracle, SQL Server or any other ODBC compatible database. This enables the ePC to display both real-time data and promotional information separately or mixed on the same screen. A display may include, for example, an airline logo to the top of the screen, with the middle screen area showing vertical scrolling text, listing the latest flights or even duty-free prices, and the lower screen region horizontally scrolling real-time messages entered locally from any PC, or linked to a remote data source.
Midas Viewpoint is an audio-visual information system, providing local speech and music output at all remote displays. AutoPA, the automated public address system is incorporated within Midas Viewpoint to provide a fully integrated information display and PA system.
