Desktop Video AGOCG Report
The two major contenders in the field of low level DTV control are Apple's QuickTime and Microsoft's Video for Windows. QuickTime has been around for nearly two years and has evolved to version 1.6 on the Macintosh.
Apple have also produced a QuickTime Player for Windows which will allow Windows users to play back QuickTime movies created on either platform. In addition Apple have licensed QuickTime to some UNIX manufacturers in order to establish it as a true cross-platform standard. Video for Windows grew out of Microsoft's Multimedia Extensions made up of the Media Player and Sound Recorder, both of which have now been included with Windows 3.1.
Software used in videotelephony will be considered, including commercially available systems such as CLI's Cameo Personal Video System as well as an examination of the implications for future videotelephony displays inferred from the ISSUE project prototypes.
