Laser-Pacific Media Corp.
have entered into an agreement to jointly develop a system for transmitting digitized and encrypted motion picture and TV production dailies over the Internet. The Digital Dailies System will operate without the support of private network fiber or the use of costly “last mile” technology, the companies claim.

The system will be compatible with both Mac and Windows computers. It will also purportedly allow producers, directors, and other creative and executive participants in the production process to view footage for approval and comment immediately after the film is transferred to telecine.
The Digital Dailies System will use Epsylon’s recently developed, proprietary video player. The Epsylon Video Player is designed to display entertainment content, such as motion pictures on-demand, to individual consumers. The system uses the player’s motion wavelet codec to reduce artifacts and deliver full screen and full motion images at low bit rates, according to Epsylon Video President and CEO Robert Spiott. While initial use of the technology will be exclusive to Laser-Pacific in North America, future generations of the system will be “widely available,” he said.
In 2001 Laser-Pacific Media was awarded a Scientific and Technological Emmy for its contributions to the creation of the 24P High Definition technology that has become standard throughout the industry. It was the fifth such award for the company.
