Founded in 1993, Digital Video Communications (DVC) designs, develops and manufactures product for applications in Digital Video.
From the office in Woburn, Massachusetts, DVC develops solutions for specific markets. Working with customers for unique applications, DVC's design engineering takes a concept from block diagram to finished product, which is fully tested in house before shipment. Embedded software, where applicable, would be developed, tested and loaded. DVC also provides technical support for the life of the product for hardware and software.
The company's roots can be found in a
previous start-up company, Fluent Machines, (Founded 1989) which
provided digital video solutions to integrators for a variety of
applications. The software development part of Fluent Machines was
sold to Novell in 1993, and DVC was formed from the hardware
In 1995 DVC developed their first product for
Cable Television <more> and following
many more product introductions now has more than 7500 Multichannel
decoder/switches installed throughout the world, as well as more
cable TV products in development.
In 1999 DVC moved into the field of Digital
Signage with a custom hardware development for a challenging
environment - highly compact with wireless networking, no fan and no
moving parts. Software and hardware development for this business
continues, to support ongoing expansion and market development, and
includes software for multiple platforms to provide clean smooth
stable animations with multiple screen areas.
In 2002 DVC began its own Digital Signage
software application, WebSign <more>
and has deployments all over the USA. WebSign is an extremly
powerful, flexible and customizable solution.
In looking for new opportunities, DVC is considering many aspects of technology where our experience in digital video products can be applied. This would of course include the fields we have been successful in -- namely Digital Signage and Cable Advertising, but could stretch to Security systems, Broadcast TV test or production equipment.
