Exibia: video scheduling

Plyxim today announced its video scheduling software for Mac OS X. The Exibia software 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 closed-circuit television system for broadcast, handles the scheduling and playback of the video content. Users of any platform can easily upload and schedule videos for playback using their web browser. Exibia Server is a Universal Binary that will work with any Mac running Mac OS X 10.4.2 or greater ands with an available video output. A G4-, G5- or Intel-processor is recommended. Pricing is $500 per Exibia Server License, which allows Exibia Server to run on a single Mac with unlimited Exibia Client and Exibia Web Client use. It is available beginning today.

Users on any platform can upload their video to the Exibia Server using the Exibia Web Client. Once the video has been uploaded, the user requests a date and time to schedule it for playback. If the time is available, the video is then scheduled for playback or users can browse the schedule for available times.

The software offers iCal and Web Integration by providing users with RSS feeds, iCal Calendar subscriptions (using industry-standard .ics calendar files) and a web interface to view and schedule content to be broadcast. Exibia can also allow users to preview the content of scheduled videos before they are broadcast.

In addition, Exibia provides easy integration with existing LDAP infrastructure, providing security for users and administrators as well as utilizes the existing closed-circuit television systems found in many schools and public buildings to allow users to broadcast their content.

The software supports Mac OS X's QuickTime media layer for compatilbe videos such as videos, mp3s, podcasts and videocasts. In addition, users can leverage third-party plug-ins such as flip4mac, Perian and DivX to schedule and broadcast content other types of DRM-Free content, such as Windows Media.
