Sure, I have used them.

The Philips ISP3004 is a solid stae MPEG video player. The video can be
encodes as MPEG 1 or 2 and downloaded via a PC to a PCMCIA card. Depending
on the bit rate, you use approx. 35MB/Min, so a 520MB card will hold about
15 minutes of video with synchronised audio. The video can be brocken into
any number of clips which are indipendantly addressable to play, loop etc -
you can therefore create sequence orders in realtime interactivly.

Control is via a 9 pin RS232 serial input. Output is via Y/C or CVBS composite
