Firefly digital signage player reviewed

Digitalproducer writes, "Firefly MZ ($1995) by Visual Circuits and Focus Enhancements is a Linux -based playback unit that’s used to feed content to digital signage in remote locations. Using its included Media Messenger software, you can create impressive AV presentations on your PC that let you mix text, mpeg video clips and stills for a CNN-like look. Then, you can distribute these graphics to the Firefly MZ via network, DVD or satellite. From a remote location, you can schedule various presentations to play at various times, giving you 24/7 control over your message."

They go on to do a nice review of the compact but limited Linux-based player. For a much more powerful solution, try FireCast digital signage software.
