279w ago - At last week's Screen Expo, Sony has presented the latest application of its digital software Ziris Canvas which incorporates the PS3.

Ziris can display content on HD screens using any layout size, shape and orientation and the spatial configuration can vary immensely.

To quote: The Cell Processor power within the PS3 gives Ziris Canvas stability and high image quality.

Josh Honda, digital signage solutions senior manager, Sony Professional, said: "The product is a great example of using a Sony consumer technology, PS3, in a serious business application, to create stable performance and outstanding computing power."

Whilst users are free to create their own layouts the system does come with pre-configured designs. Customers are also able to create targeted playlist schedules for playout using Ziris Create, enabling adaptation of content dependent on changing situations thus increasing relevancy to the audience.
