San Diego, CA - September, 23 2002
ZyGoDigital announced today that ViaSat has begun demonstrations of their Link-16 Multi-functional Information Distribution System (MIDS) terminals
using streaming video compressed with ZyGoVideo™ Pro. ZyGoVideo was chosen for these demonstrations because the codec produces excellent quality video, highlighting the 300kbps data rate of the Link-16 Enhanced Throughput (ET) communications channels. Both pre-compressed and live streaming videos were demonstrated to the Undersecretary of Defense.
ZyGoVideo Pro, a QuickTime 5 Downloadable Component, is being used to compress the video in real time in conjunction with ZyGoCaster™. ZyGoCaster is ZyGoDigital's new broadcasting application for compressing and streaming multiple QuickTime videos from a single compression station. ZyGoCaster and ZyGoVideo are being used to stream multiple videos from the South Pacific to the United States over a T1 link on the Anti-Ballistic Missile Test Program. ZyGoCaster streams ZyGoVideo Pro videos under both Mac OS 9 and QuickTime 5, as well as Mac OS/X, and QuickTime 6.
ZyGoVideo Pro is offered for sale on the ZyGoVideo web site. Visit them at their web site http://www.zygodigital.com, ZyGoCaster is available for custom projects now and is planned for an upcoming product release.
