Microspot Hydra enables users to create a multimonitor synchronized slide show, according to the developer. Each monitor can display a different picture and switch to the next sequence of pictures at synchronized time intervals. The system uses one Mac with up to 10 monitors running from it.
Microspot is pitching Hydra to retailers and other companies looking for an eye-catching alternative to conventional show window merchandise displays. The company said it’s ideal for real estate agencies, travel agents, jewelers, and more.
Hydra includes not only the display system but a photo-editing program, 2D drawing tools used for drawing diagrams and displaying them, and a storage program that can catalog the contents of the Hydra system.
Microspot Hydra includes the computer, eight monitors, peripherals and software and starts at £2,500. Microspot is actively looking for Apple resellers interested in taking the system on for distribution internationally, as well.
