OSCAR, direct-to-QuickTime

HaiVision Systems today announced that its OSCAR H.264 encoder now supports direct-to-QuickTime audio video streaming. The OSCAR is a compact H.264 MPEG-4 AVC encoder designed specifically for video streaming and IPTV applications that offers CIF, half resolution, and full resolution (SD or D1) encoding or decoding at up to 1.5Mbps. Users can direct the OSCAR to a QuickTime Streaming Server to accommodate a large number of unicast streams. Both the OSCAR encoder and decoder are already available, with the encoder priced at $3,700.

Supporting MPEG-4 AVC H.264 Baseline and enhanced profiles with fully controllable resolution, frame rate, and bit rate from 64Kbps to 1.5Mbps, the OSCAR is designed for tuning to nearly any bandwidth requirement. The device measures 0.92 x 5.85 x 8.0-inches with a locking power supply, and uses RTSP protocol to deliver multiple streams (10+) directly via multicast or unicast.

    Coming from testudo, a moron with nary a clue about anything, but solely having a monumental bone to pick with Apple, this means absolutely nothing.

    Furthermore, this is far from 'last minute' as we do not know when the team transfer took place, and I attribute this far more to aded features and refinements being added to both iPhone and OS X (as iPhone is running OS X, any enhancements will transfer to Leopard anyway).

    Sounds to me like a company that really intends to make a splash with the iPhone, and to do equally with Laopard in October.
