Play Incorporated was founded in 1994 by computer and video industry pioneers with the goal of melding high-end video and graphics capabilities to personal computers for distribution over the Internet. Among its award winning products are Snappy Video Snapshot, Trinity, which revolutionized TV production and graphics throughout the world and GlobeCaster, the world's first Internet TV station-in-a-box. Unfortunately, the company went out of business around 2000, and their products became orphaned. This is my attempt at supporting the wonderful and cutting-edge products once provided by Play Inc.
