ZyGoDigital, a San Diego-based developer that provides live video streaming and compression technologies to the defense and security industries, announced recently that
is now available. The new version of ZyGoDigital’s multi-stream video broadcast application, which is used by the Ballistic Missile Defense Program, is compatible with QuickTime 6.4/6.5 and runs in either Mac OS X v10.2 “Jaguar” or v10.3 “Panther.”
Enhancements in the new release include: a “New” command that creates another instance of the broadcast session, allowing you to start multiple sessions at the same time; the ability to save instances; a “Preview” command that allows you to view the video input before you compress it; an “Export” command that creates an .sdp file for your QuickTime or Darwin Streaming Server; a scheduler function; and more.
You can continue to create video clips with the “Save to File” dialog, and version 2.0 automatically exports meta data and video files to ZyGoDigital’s ZyGoOASIS management tool. The company notes that ZyGoCaster works with any video or audio codec, but you’ll get your best results when using it with their QuickTime 6 downloadable component, ZyGoVideo. And with ZyGoDigital’s ZyGoMediaShow application, you can display multiple ZyGoVideo streams on a tiled screen display to create a “video wall,” complete with the ability to surf the different streams and select one for enlarged display.
ZyGoCaster 2.0 licenses run US$1,000 per computer. Contact the company for more information about volume license discounts.
