Lincoln, Neb.-based Nanonation has announced Nanopoint E3, the newest version of its software for deploying digital video presentations on kiosks and other displays. It’s an enterprise-class client/server solution that Nanonation said is aimed at Apple’s new Mac mini, which sports a diminutive form factor well-suited for displays. Expected to ship Jan. 22, Nanopoint E3 will be combined with the Mac mini in a turnkey solution — the software can take digital media and manipulate it on-the-fly, using RSS news feeds or other dynamic content to create presentations based on real-time data, such as sales numbers or even changes in the weather.
Nanonation also pointed to the upcoming releases of Mac OS X v10.4 “Tiger” and QuickTime 7 as key to getting the most out of the Nanopoint E3 solution. QuickTime 7’s H.264/AVC (Advanced Video Coding), Core Image and Core Video technologies will be instrumental in enabling businesses to produce video playback at smaller file sizes, with support for high-definition video and images, according to the company.
