>Subject: WSIRC 2.0 Video pre-release (WDEUDORA2)
>
>Hello,
>
>This is the WDEUDORA2 mailing list of WSIRC registered users. If you get
>duplicate email on this subject please send me email to correct it.
>
>This is a pre-release update that WSIRC 2.0 Video is about to be released.
>Registered users of WSIRC 1.x versions are provided a free upgrade.
>
>The next release of WSIRC will consist of 2 EXE's, WSIRCR.EXE will as always
>provide the TEXT only version of WSIRC, WSIRCV.EXE will provide DCC VIDEO.
>
>The reason for two EXE's is that DCC VIDEO requires an Intel Smart Video
>Recorder Pro video capture board (at about US$ 449.-) and Video for Windows
>software. You can use any capture board that supports Intel's Indeo video
>compression format, Intel's board provides on board i 960 RISC hardware
>compression for higher throughput. For those users that do not have a video
>capture board WSIRCR.EXE is still provided for their use.
>
>WSIRC 2.0 Video is the next version of WSIRC. It now provides DCC VIDEO that
>will allow two users to Video Conference, audio is supported in half duplex
>mode, i.e. speakerphone style, one party speaks the other party listens. It
>provides multiple DCC VIDEO windows at once, although it would be practical
>to have only one at a time unless you are connected via a high-speed
connection.
>
>DCC Video on an ISDN dial-up PPP connection provides up to 3 frames per
>second throughput, on T1 up to 30fps, on modem line up to 1 frame every 3
>seconds. Audio is sent at 1300 bps and should be acceptable over modem lines.
>
>Audio is half-duplex due to Windows wave device driver specification
>limitation. Additional frame difference video compression will be added to
>increase video throughput up to an estimated 5 frames per second on modem
>lines and up to an estimated 15 frames per second on ISDN lines. Users on T1
>lines can go full throttle as always.
>
>There will be companion products to WSIRC 2.0 Video, WSIRC 2.0 Video Pro
>will provide Video Conferencing using IRC servers, i.e.
>multi-cast/multi-station video conferencing. This will require high
>bandwidth connections, 56K, ISDN or T1 are preferred.
>
>A WSIRC 2.0 Video Answering Machine software based on WSIRC 2.0 Video will
>also be made available soon. This will allow users that have dedicated
>connections to effectively have a Video Phone available to take video calls
>whenever they aren't available to answer their video calls.
>
>Special thanks to a few handful of people that were generous enough to
>encourage, assist and accomodate me to further develop WSIRC.
>
>Cheers, Caesar.
