When it comes to media playback, most professional solutions available today are either laptop-based, or media-server based. This often comes with a slew of reliability issues and a steep learning curve. The Theatrixx xPressCue is a hardware device designed to address the playback needs of the video, lighting and audio professionals.

Designed and manufactured by Theatrixx, xPressCue has a large 1TB onboard flash-based storage capacity. It can recognize and play most known video, audio and image files with a minimal loading delay. The device is equipped with the necessary hardware and software to make switching between two clips instant and seamless.

Failure is not an option in the pro-AV industry and so every precaution is taken on the hardware and software side to guarantee a continued smooth operation. The device is also housed in a durable rackmount 1U enclosure, equipped with professional, locking connectors including True1 Power, XLR audio, and 12G-SDI video.

The xPressCue can be controlled in several ways, including its on-board OLED display and encoder wheel, web-based interface, DMX and more. External devices such as the Elgato Stream Deck XL are supported natively, giving 32 immediate access buttons for clips, cue lists, and playback controls
