MediaShow interface


MediaShow is a software application that uses a button-box interface to trigger the display of various media file types in a display window. It was developed for portable planetariums but has a large feature-set and can be used in a variety of settings. It comes in 3 versions:

  • MediaShow Pro - full windowed application best used in setups with 2 video outputs, with access to all media presets and playback controls
  • MediaShow-Mirror - 1600px strip control window locked to the display top for use with single display and mirror projection setups, limited access to playback presets and controls
  • MediaShow-Mirror-1024 - similar to Mirror but only 1024px wide for smaller display setups

MediaShow is available to purchase and as a FREE 30-day demo download.

MediaShow is the ONLY planetarium software that allows closed-captioning on demand!
