Movie files can now be played on an external display via the Voyager and PocketTV
ATLANTA, GA, March 26, 2002 — Colorgraphic Communications, a specialist in the development of unique display technologies, has partnered with yet another application developer to expand the utility of its popular Voyager VGA video adapter. Through a joint development program launched with MpegTV, users can now direct MPEG Video playback to a secondary screen by selecting the Voyager VGA option from within PocketTV. Users can then connect their Voyager-enabled Pocket PC or Win CE device to a standard monitor or television.
“It has always been important to Colorgraphic to embrace and support the development community for Pocket PC and Windows CE,” remarks Brian Lemaster, Director of Sales for Colorgraphic. “Our new relationship with PocketTV further expands the capabilities of users by allowing video content to be shown externally. Presenters no longer have to be content to show static PowerPoint slides or application screens to their audiences.”
Tristan Savatier, from MpegTV comments, “PocketTV can now output Fullscreen video directly to the Voyager VGA card, allowing users to watch video using an external monitor or display device like VR (Virtual Reality) glasses connected to their Pocket PC. PocketTV is an MPEG Movie Player, free for personal use on Pocket PC and available from http://www.pockettv.com.”
The Voyager ships with Shadow, its video control software. Shadow allows the user to control various aspects of the video output signal, such as resolution, refresh rate and color depth. Moreover, Shadow is compatible with most flat panel displays that rotate 90 degrees into portrait mode. An SDK is available to developers who wish to integrate full screen video output into their 3rd party applications.
Colorgraphic is headquartered in Atlanta, GA with a European subsidiary located in the UK. Colorgraphic products are available internationally through its network of distributors and resellers.
