Movie Changer has been designed so as to allow virtually any method of control. It has a normal computer keyboard and mouse interface, a method of interfacing with an IR remote and control through both serial ports and TCP and UDP sockets using a simple yet powerful command language. This means that the Mac can be used as a stand-alone video media player, or integrated with a sophisticated control system such as AMX.
Multiple Macs running Media Changer can be networked, allowing movies to be stored once but played anywhere. The Movie Changers communicate seamlessly in a peer-to-peer environment. The control language allows any of the Movie Changers on the network to be controlled through a single interface.
