Barco Media Server - Barco Certified Specialist - XHD Media Server and Graphical User Interface

The BMS powered by X-Agora is a suite of applications that allow you to go from designing your multimedia event to deploying it, within a single software environment. It is a multimedia production system for projects of all scales that provides a common pipeline for interaction design, content integration as well as “show time” playback. Most importantly, X-Agora allows you to go beyond traditional “playback” by making it possible to easily integrate sensors and interactive content into your multimedia event. External inputs of various kinds (sensors, touch-screens etc.) can be integrated into your X-Agora system for real-time interactive control of features such as particle systems, visual effects, custom scriptable logic, actuators etc.
