Highlights include:

• A new high-performance video-playback engine that plays back videos much faster than before, including 60fps video, and HD video on suitable hardware.

• Supported playback of H.264 (MPEG-4) video files. H.264 offers high visual quality at a smaller file size than MPEG-2 or WMV files.

• The new Broadcast Server module allows you to distribute content and plans to players using a multicast or package delivery network.

• Play and control external audio sources from the "Line Input" of your sound card.

• A PC's display can now be in spanning / stretched mode, which performs better and looks cleaner than using two independent displays.

• Support for text-entry field elements from the Buttons panel. This allows you to create interactive applications that take keyboard input.

• You can now specify a proxy server's URL, username, and password.

• Publishing individual files that are bigger than 4GB is now supported.

• Sub-playlists can be easily created by multi-selecting media items and clicking Create Sub-Playlist.

• Text elements using variables, and text crawls now support inline and adjacent style changes for font, color, italics, size, etc.

• You can now "synchronize players" instead of "generating plans"

These improvements are only some of the enhancements which continue to be released as InfoChannel 5 passes its 1 year anniversary.

If you are currently using Scala IC3, now is the time to consider upgrading to InfoChannel 5.
