ImageCue Adds Audio Playback


ImageCue has just released the software update 1.0.1.8 for its popular compact media server.

 

This update allows the playback of media files with video and audio. Output is via HDMI. The software update is 100% backwards compatible with all ImageCue units in the field. 

“Since we launched ImageCue two years ago, we have had numerous requests for the ability to play video files with audio”, says Bill Hewlett, ImageCue LLC CEO. “This was a problem because playing back media files with video and audio streams can introduce a playback delay which didn’t achieve our primary goal of video on cue with close to zero latency.” To solve this problem, the ImageCue software engineers developed a single layer background pre-roll feature. While one video file is playing, another can be “pre-rolled” to its first frame in the background so that when play is selected the video and audio start with virtually no latency.
