Zeros & Ones Technologies Achieves Seven Full Length Movies on One DVD(September 28, 2001)
This increases the total to seven full-length movies on one DVD.
The increase in efficiency further demonstrates the power of the Company's revolutionary new high-quality digital video compression engine, "MC-10," which currently is achieving ratios between three to ten times compression with the same or superior levels of image quality to MPEG2.
MC-10 combines over 100 individual processes, ranging from high-definition image quality enhancements at the sub-pixel level during pre-compression stages, to pixel-by-pixel motion tracking and processing in the compression stages.
"Development actively continues on our MC-10 engine and we are working hard to achieve each phased milestone of this important project," said Robert J. Holtz, Chairman & CEO, "As each phase and sub-phase is completed and the internal processes are further integrated, we expect to see additional improvements in compression performance thereby further widening our lead to the marketplace."
In addition to the new multi-movie DVD show-of-force, the Company is preparing a comparative analysis using 8 seconds of video: uncompressed, compressed using a conventional method, and compressed with MC-10. The analysis will showcase what the Company believes to be a substantial advantage in image quality when using MC-10.
MC-10 is so radically different in its approach to compression that it can successfully compress scenes, such as backlit hair or fields of tall grass, that inherently don't compress well using conventionally available methods such as MPEG and MPEG2. In addition, MC-10 completely eliminates the possibility of "banding," a common problem associated with compression especially in the high-end digital visual effects industry.
The market for digital video compression is huge, encompassing DVDs, personal video recorders (such as Microsoft Ultimate TV and TiVO), satellite TV, digital motion picture transmission to theaters, high-quality video conferencing, digital video phones, wireless, and other broadband applications.
The Company is in active talks with, and continues to seek, strategic technology and investment partners to advance the development and commercialization of MC-10.
