The 'Glitch Switch' is a unique playback system specifically designed for vintage CRT televisions and monitors that provides a creative way to display your content.

The glitch switch can play 12 videos simultaneosly and switch those videos between 16 different outputs. Each time the system 'switches' the video feed there is a 'glitch' in the signal that causes the screen to roll or jump for a single frame giving a retro feel to the display.

The glitch switch can also take in an addition 8 external feeds from other media players or even live video feeds and switch between them as well as the internal 12 videos.

Here's a video of the Glitch Switch in operation :

The Glitch Switch is ideal for events and in retail situations where the system needs to be unstaffed. You can simply switch it on at the beginning of the day and it will boot up and start playing the video sequence within seconds.

Sequences can be programmed by pure enrergy staff to your specifications and loaded into the system ready for deployment.

An example program could look like :

Play Video1 to ALL 16 Outputs
Wait 5 Seconds
Play Video2 to Outputs 1 to 8
Play Video3 to Outputs 9 to 16
Wait 5 Seconds
Play Video4 to Output 1
Play Video5 to Output 2
Play Video6 to Output 3
Play Video7 to Output 4
Wait 2 Seconds

In the above example Video1 could be the brand logo for instance and other videos could be short clips of product, maybe one clip showing static and so on ..

The glitch switch uses very little power at only 0.4A.
