On2 Technologies announced today the launch of the new
VP3.com Web site. The site has been launched in preparations of next month’s release of source code related to VP3, a video compression algorithm that works with QuickTime.
Visitors to the site can view a draft of the license and download the code for either Mac or Windows version of QuickTime. Users will also be able to post their own enhancements to the source code and participate in discussions on a forum hosted by the site. The source code for VP3.2 itself is expected to be released on Thursday, September 6, 2001.
On2 Technologies licenses its video codes for use in set-top boxes, gaming devices and wireless applications. The company is headquartered in New York City and has offices in Albany, London, and Seoul.
