Author: JT Smith

Anonymous Reader writes "A research lab at Cornell University has
released a next
generation real-time video codec (CU30) and accompying Video conferencing program for Linux (qVIX).
The codec is a better than realtime/no latency, full frame rate (30 FPS), high quality, low
bandwidth algorithm designed for bandwidths of DSL and higher. While the algorithm is patented,
the University has granted a free (speech) patent-use to everybody so long as the implementations of the
patents are GPL'ed. qVIX/CU30 was demonstrated
several months ago in a live techTV interview which can be found
here or
here. (120megs)"
