Houston-based multimedia producer and software developer Trans-Delta Interactive Systems is phasing out laser disks as a presentation tool. Instead, it’s moved to using the MPEG CMotion real-time digital audio-video compression system from Dallas-based Optibase Inc. Optibase PCMotion boards play back compressed MPEG digital video and audio files to NTSC or PAL output with synchronised stereo sound. Trans-Delta’s multimedia system is based on a software program it has developed called Random Access Video Environment, or RAVE, enabling users to interact with a touch screen in a video kiosk. Applications include the ability to create interactive advertisement kiosks at department stores, which would direct customers to the items they seek through a touch screen, and would also gather customer data and compile it for database marketing.
