Its rich feature set allows complete configuration control over image zooms and rotations, and movie start and stop times. MediaShow Pro is a full windowed application best used in setups with 2 video outputs (e.g. a laptop hooked to an LCD projector with a fisheye lens or mirror-system.



MediaShow-Mirror

MediaShow-Mirror | MediaShow-Mirror-1024

Single display setups (e.g. laptops running a projector through video-mirroring) can use MediaShow-Mirror. This version has a 1400x60 pixel control window locked to the top of the display, moving it out of view for most dome projections, with the display window filling the remainder of the view. It has only limited access to playback presets and controls. MediaShow-Mirror-1024 is similar but only 1024 pixels wide for even smaller display setups.

Survey App and its companion Editor are great tools for museums to quickly create interactive kiosks to gather visitor responses or test basic knowledge.

Great for getting feedback as visitors leave an exhibit!
