The job of this unit is to allow staff to upload, schedule and <br />play programs on BKAT and BKAT.Org. CASTUS is the only product that plays nearly all types of <br />video files. As new types of video files are introduced, the CASTUS can be easily updated to accept <br />them. The current playback system is outdated and will not play the latest types of video files, <br />forcing staff to spend valuable time converting files to make them compatible. <br /> <br />Additional features: Multi week scheduling, Two channel playback for cable tv and streaming. Web <br />based interface for remote access. Graphic overlays and crawling text for emergency and <br />promotional information. <br /> <br />ATTACHMENTS: 1) Castus Estimate; 2) Castus Fact Sheet; and 3) Sole Source Letter <br /> <br /> <br />FISCAL IMPACTS (Include Budgeted Amount): The purchase price of $40,964.50 is included in <br />the BKAT 2019 Capital Improvement budget.
