Apple - Mac: Apple's Video Vault

It looks pretty obvious Apple would like iTunes to be a repository for more than just music -- try music videos and maybe (conjecture, here) someday even movies. It's already proven that the model can work, and iTunes is popular and subsequently very well-known.

What H.264 (AVC) will really do for us
I started writing this article all because of one particular video I watched on Apple’s website. It wasn’t one of those fancy HD trailers but rather a CNBC video about OS X Tiger. What impressed me about this was the fact that it was an online, streaming video at 640x480.

For those of you unfamiliar with just how special that is, the Internet norm to date has been usually been around 320x240 at a god awfully low bitrate, somewhere around the 300kbps. This CNBC excerpt was 640x480 at an impressive (for online) 650kbps.

Google Preps Video Distribution Service
While online music stores begin to gain acceptance among the recording industry and consumers alike, Google is looking to a future beyond just audio. The company is preparing a video distribution platform that provides a complete ecosystem of services for content producers, publishers and end-users.

Google began testing its prototype video search engine in January, which scours the closed captioning text of television shows from a variety of channels. Users can view still images from a segment, but due to unsettled licensing issues, cannot see video clips nor read full transcripts.

Discs Are So Dead 
A few years ago, the future of high-capacity discs would have been guaranteed nonetheless, thanks to high-definition television. Digitizing hi-def video, after all, produces a ton of data, which is tough to move around on networks.

That's where compression and bandwidth come in. Both Apple and Microsoft are developing new codecs, compression-decompression algorithms that squeeze hi-def video and then unpack it for viewing

Apple - Mac: A quick look at Apple's QuickTime
I've taken the past few months to research some new technologies and work on implementations with the goal of sharing what I've learned.

This month's topic is QuickTime. I've chosen it because a new version is expected with the much-anticipated release of Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger), and because there are so many facets to this technology that are not widely understood.

Apple - Mac: Apple working on a Hi-Def video network?
Apple's interest in satellite HD content delivery has become more than obvious. Just a note to Phil Schiller and company: your (potential) competitors are taking notice!

Just because Apple rebuffed Sirius is by no means an indication that Apple isn't interested in satellite content delivery. Apple just doesn't want to piggback on someone else's network -- they're interested in building their own on existing satellites and potentially launching more than one of their own in the next few years as well.
