From Internet Wire: Multicast Technologies, Inc., announced today that the company is releasing the Internet's first
multicast audio player, The MCT Player. The MCT Player is available to the public starting today, November 29, 2000, as a FREE downloadable file on the
company's audio station, www.On-The-I.com . The MCT Player is the first to deliver CD quality sound and the first to track multicast traffic. The MCT Player
also features Staggered Erasure Protection, a patent pending technology developed by Multicast Technologies that corrects for missing data, which
otherwise causes drop-outs in sound.
The MCT Player is being released under an open-source license, which will enable other programmers to contribute
improvements to subsequent player updates.
