Plyxim, LLC. announced Tuesday the release of Exibia 1.4, the company's broadcast scheduling application for Mac OS X. The program allows clients in a multi-user, multi-platform environment to upload and schedule QuickTime-compatible videos to a centrally located server.
The Exibia Server, connected to a cable television (CATV) system for broadcast, handles the scheduling and playback of video content. Users of any platform can easily upload and schedule videos for playback using their web browser, including iPhone or iPod touch.
The new version introduces the following fixes and changes:
- Introduces the "Play Now" feature that allows users to begin playing a video immediately, schedule-permitting.
- Introduces the Exibia Administrator login that allows an administrator to log in and delete uploaded content and remove videos from the schedule regardless of who scheduled or uploaded the content.
- Allows scheduling videos to the minute instead of only offering time slots in five-minute intervals.
- Resolves an issue with the Exibia Web Client and logging in from different time zones.
Exibia Server requires a G4, G5 or Intel-based Mac and Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later to install and run. The Exibia Server program retails for $499 per license which allows Exibia Server to run on a single Macintosh computer with unlimited Exibia Client and Exibia Web Client use.
Exibia v1.4 is available today and a time-limited, fully-functional demo is available for download from the company's website.
