Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Visual Circuits, a U.S.-based designer and manufacturer of digital video systems, introduces Firefly -- the world's most compact and affordable multichannel video player for retailers, entertainment venues, education institutions and corporations -- at IBC 2000 in Amsterdam."

"Firefly, designed for ease-of-use, simple installation and unsupervised operation, plays back up to four channels of high-resolution video at a cost-per-channel that is unmatched in the audio-visual industry today (priced from $3,195 for a four-channel player). And, at about the height of a standard business card (1-3/4" H, 17" W and 19" D) Firefly is perfect for demanding video installations where space is at a premium...."

"Once Firefly is set-up, it requires minimal intervention. Users simply power-up and let the player do the rest. A display panel on the front of the player can be used to configure the system and create playlists. And because Firefly is based on the Linux operating system, it is extremely reliable and price competitive."
