Projects / IvySync


IvySync provides synced playback of multiple videos on multiple screens. In the video art field, there are many artworks which require synchronized and parallel playback of audio/video materials. This software provides such functionality for IvyTV supported hardware decoders, with sync precision to the frame, a user friendly configuration interface, network sync of multiple machines, time scheduling of different playlists, and the ability to be controlled remotely via XMLRPC.
