    zu weihnachten noch ein kleines geschenk... nach midway games nun wieder ein kleiner funken, der ganz großes birgt...

    es ist On2 technology... die aktie stand mal bei über 40dollar... seit ein paar tagen läuft "ONT" wieder kräftig los.... ONT dürfte mindestens ein potenzial von 4,5 bis 5 dollar haben. dies soll keine kaufempfehlung sein, sondern lediglich ein informationsthread :D

    hier eine alte (1.12.2005) aber nicht weniger interessante news von On2 Technology:

    NEW YORK (AFX) -- On2 Technologies, Inc. shares rose 17 cents, or 23%, to 91 cents on Thursday after the company unveiled a deal to provide technology to E-Bay`s Skype service. The latest version of Skype 2.0 uses On2 technology to deliver video. The new Skype Video offering allows Skype users to see and send real time video as they communicate with friends, family and colleagues.

    On2: Browser-Plug-In erstellt Flash-8-Videos 19.12.2005, 17:27

    On2 will ein Browser-Plug-In auf den Markt bringen, mit dem Nutzer Videos auf ihrem PC in Flash 8 umwandeln und über einen zentralen Server verteilen können. Dabei richtet sich On2, deren Codec in Flash 8 zum Einsatz kommt, explizit an Endkunden, die ihre Videos mit wenigen Klicks ins Internet stellen wollen.

    Die Software will On2 als Browser-Plug-In für den Internet Explorer realisieren. Filme von einer Kamera oder Webcam bzw. Videos auf der Festplatte oder 3GP-Videos vom Handy sollen sich dann per Drag-and-Drop in Flash 8 umwandeln, auf dem Server ablegen und so leicht in ein Blog einbinden lassen.

    Eine erste Beta will On2 Anfang bis Mitte des ersten Quartals 2006 bereitstellen, die fertige Version soll dann auch in die On2 Flix Engine eingegliedert werden, die sich an Unternehmenskunden richtet.

    Dabei will On2 alle Browser unterstützen, die Microsofts ActiveX beherrschen. Man konzentriert sich also auf den Internet Explorer.

    Rosenberger,

    woher kommt die Kursfantasie für die Aktie? Welche Entwicklung der Firma ist so vielversprechend? Gibt es Informationen wieviel in diesem oder nächsten Jahr pro Aktie verdient werden soll die den Anstieg rechtfertigen?

    zum thema produkte, aggressives marketing, Q3 und Q4:

    We are very pleased with our third quarter results because they indicate quite clearly how effectively we are executing against our strategic plan", said Douglas A. McIntyre, President and Chief Executive Officer of On2. "The third quarter saw On2 move from being a company with no salable products to one that is aggressively marketing and successfully selling its high-quality products and services. As a result, we have continued to increase our revenues, we have reduced our expenses significantly by operating more efficiently, and, we have made meaningful alliances with important strategic partners. We expect to build on the momentum of the third quarter to grow our business, and we are optimistic about bringing in new customers -- and revenue increases -- in the fourth quarter." ;)

    All Eyes on XM
    By Rick Aristotle Munarriz (TMFBreakerRick)
    December 30, 2005

    Investors are watching for an announcement that XM Satellite Radio (Nasdaq: XMSR) has surpassed the 6 million subscriber mark -- days after Sirius (Nasdaq: SIRI) announced that it has 3 million listeners on board. After next week`s Consumer Electronics Show, however, "watching XM" may take on an entirely new meaning.

    At the show, XM will unveil a decked-out Lexus concept car with its XM Advanced Series set of features. Some seem awfully futuristic, like using the company`s personalized traffic updates to ferret out parking lot space availability, or voice command technology that provides the hands-free ability to find desired content. The application I`m most eager to check out, though, is XM`s ability to stream video content thanks to its partnership with On2 (AMEX: ONT).

    Streaming video over satellite radio is not a new concept. Nearly a year ago, Sirius announced that it will begin offering video content through a software partnership with Inside Value pick Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) as early as next summer.

    The quality of the video transmissions beyond cartoons, however, remains to be seen. Animated fare, though, would probably be just fine for satellite-radio streamers on the road who are seeking fresh content to entertain the restless kiddies in the back.

    That`s one thing that investors who may be bearish on satellite radio need to consider. A few decades ago, paying $20-$25 a month for cable television seemed preposterous when a pair of rabbit-ear antennas would pull in all the free major-network content. Then cable become an indispensable upgrade over the broadcast freebies. Then cable and satellite television providers began offering even more content and services, leading you to crack open that $95 DirecTV (NYSE: DTV) monthly bill.

    No, XM or Sirius will never be commanding $95 monthly ransoms. However, when XM initiated a 30% price hike that went into effect back in April, nobody backed away. In fact, three months later, XM had to raise its guidance for its year-end subscriber count. As many of next week`s features begin to roll out, XM will either be able to raise rates across the board or introduce premium offerings.

    This should work out well for XM subscribers. After a great run through 2003 and 2004, the shares have stalled in 2005. That allowed Rule Breakers subscribers to get in at a reasonable price after it was recommended two months ago, given the sector`s potential.

    The only thing investors would want to see more than a successful video rollout -- for now -- may be CEO Hugh Panero announcing that XM has hit the 6 million subscriber milestone that he projected would happen by the end of the year. Panero has erred on the conservative side in the past. With Howard Stern joining Sirius a week from Monday, the last thing XM needs is to relinquish its leading role in signing up new subscribers.

    We`re watching, XM. Now just give us something to look for.

    On2 and CTTnet Announce Milestones in VP7 Mobile Development for Chinese Markets and Demonstration of VP7-Enabled Cellphones at CES

    NEW YORK, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies, (Nachrichten) Inc. , and China Transport Telecommunications Broadband Network Service Co., Ltd. (CTTnet) announced that they have made significant progress in the development and deployment throughout China of a broad range of mobile streaming applications based on On2`s TrueMotion VP7 Technology. CTTnet has begun the process of having the VP7 mobile technology approved for use by Chinese mobile carriers, and initial response from the carriers has been positive. On2 will be demonstrating VP7 operating on a number of mobile platforms at CES.

    The parties also stated that the previously-announced agreement between On2 and Beijing Fastrend Technology Ltd. has been revised, with CTTnet replacing Fastrend as a party to the agreement.

On2 and CTTnet have begun the work necessary to commence a VP7 implementation on the Brew mobile within the first quarter of 2006 and have continued planning for future implementations on additional mobile operating systems.

In support of this initial focus on the burgeoning Chinese mobile phone market, On2 has granted CTTnet certain exclusive marketing rights relating to VP7 for mobile applications.

    "We are excited by the opportunities created by the CTTnet/On2 partnership. We expect that the implementation of VP7 in our mobile television technology will give our customers and us an unprecedented quality mobile streaming application experience while at the same time further enhancing our existing market leadership position," said Mr. Yang Chenggong, CTTnet`s chairman, president and chief executive officer.

    "On2 and CTTnet are among the true innovators driving new mobile trends throughout Asia, and ultimately the world. By effectively setting new directions in mobile communications, they should become the bellwether for the next big trend in mobile application development -- mobile video," said Douglas A. McIntyre, chairman, president and chief executive officer of On2 Technologies. "A critical component to enabling mobile video trends is image quality. The VP7 codec is optimized for pushing very high quality video content through mobile networks and our joint goal is that in 2006, millions of consumers across China will experience VP7 quality first-hand on their mobile devices," Mr. McIntyre added.

    This week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas On2 will be demonstrating various VP7-powered video smartphones and other mobile devices that have been developed through the initial On2/CTTnet collaboration. These demonstrations will take place in the On2 Technology Demo Suite at the MGM Grand and are by appointment only. Interested parties may schedule demos by contacting Daniel Scherer of On2 Technologies at 646-292-3533.

    On2 and CTTnet make progress in VP7 mobile development

    05/01/2006 by Parthajit

    On2 Technologies and China Transport Telecommunications Broadband Network (CTTnet) announced that they have made significant progress in the development and deployment of a range of mobile streaming applications , based on On2`s True Motion VP7 technology, throughout China.

    CTTnet has begun the process of having the VP7 mobile technology approved for use by Chinese mobile carriers, and initial response from the carriers has been positive. On2 will be demonstrating VP7 operating on a number of mobile platforms at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this month.

    The parties also stated that the previously announced agreement between On2 and Beijing Fastrend Technology has been revised, with CTTnet replacing Fastrend as a party to the agreement.

    On2 and CTTnet stated that they have achieved significant technical milestones in integrating VP7 on the Symbian and Smartphone mobile operating systems and PDA platforms and currently have VP7 operating on four Symbian models, more than ten Smartphone models and several PDA models.

    The VP7 Symbian player should be available for commercial release during the first quarter of 2006. On2 and CTTnet have begun the work necessary to commence a VP7 implementation on the Brew mobile within the first quarter of 2006 and have continued planning for future implementations on additional mobile operating systems.

    The parties will also actively market the integrated VP7 mobile video applications worldwide. In support of this initial focus on the burgeoning Chinese mobile phone market , On2 has granted CTTnet certain exclusive marketing rights related to VP7 for mobile applications.

    From a post from another board.... 1/10/2006 5:37:27 AM
    Posted By: fiddling_joe Msg# 182 of 183

    I rarely post on these boards, and I primarily peruse them to see if there are any useful tidbits or hints of information. However, I feel compelled to set a few things straight about On2 and its potential revenue streams. First of all, Adobe acquired Macromedia last year for one reason and one reason only: revenue enhancement. Despite the fact they were both primarily multimedia software providers, they were never actually in direct competition. They each had their own distinctive niches. Adobe’s primary moneymaker is Acrobat; whereas Flash is Macromedia’s bread and butter. What Adobe saw was the potential for incredible profits by incorporating Flash into Acrobat, and by Flash’s potential in handheld devices. When Adobe saw Macromedia inking deals with Nokia and Samsung to provide Flash in their cellular phones the deal was all but done. Now all the other phone and handheld manufacturers are clamoring to get on board. Over one billion cell phones ship annually. That means, if in the next year, if only half have Flash included, that’s still potentially 500 million phones Flash enabled. Adobe/Macromedia’s take of the pie??? 50 cents royalty per phone. Now then you ask, what does all this have to do with On2? If you care to remember, they went from an up-front fee to a back-end royalty agreement with their partners (read: Adobe/Macromedia). Not a bad business model when you are over half-way to having your product on over 600 million computers plus damn near that many handhelds world-wide. How much is On2 getting for VP6 powering Flash? Don’t know because of the NDA with Adobe/Macromedia, but you can bet it will be substantial. Now about all the Google talk. Google wasn’t ever going to pay its partners for usage of its software and components. Read the Google Video PR for confirmation, or study their business model. Where On2 will make money from Google is when they switch to Flash 8/8.5/9 (whichever!). At that point, Google will have to purchase On2’s SDK’s for site maintenance and there will be a substantial upfront fee plus the requisite ongoing usage fees. Sorry. I’m out of space, and I didn’t even have time to mention the guaranteed revenues from SKYPE, XM, AOL, CTTnet, Muvee, Tencent, and Leapster. Or the potential revenues from Google Talk. How about retail sales of Flix, the premier Flash developers kit (and the only one with two-pass encoding) to the two million plus web developer`s community. So sad to have run out of space with so much more to discuss…. BTW, I sincerely hope that if you are dumb enough to be shorting On2, please close your position at the end of each trading day. I’d hate to see you lose everything when the NDA’s are lifted, revenue estimates are revealed, and this triple gaps up one morning.

    Symbian sells `one phone per second`
    By Jo Best
    Special to CNET News.com

    Published: February 14, 2006, 2:48 PM PST
    TalkBack E-mail Print
    Symbian`s most recent quarterly results helped bring it to profitability for the first time--and it`s now selling more than one phone every second, the company said.

    The software company announced Tuesday that its operating system shipped on 10.9 million mobile devices in the fourth quarter of 2005, bringing the year`s total to more than 33 million phones--a year-over-year growth of 136 percent.

    With 60 million phones shipped cumulatively, the company said it now has between 60 percent and 70 percent of the smart phone market.

    Symbian said its revenue for the quarter reached 33.6 million pounds ($57.4 million) and the smart phone maker said it reached profitability for the first time in 2005.

    Symbian CEO Nigel Clifford reiterated the company`s intention to make its mark in the mass market. "We want to take our apps and software into what is currently called the feature phone market," he told delegates at the 3GSM World Congress, the wireless technology conference held this week in Barcelona, Spain.

    The company recently announced a change to its licensing structure, cutting initial costs in return for high volume sales.

    However, Clifford said the company was not forgetting its smart phone roots. "We are not saying smart phones are done. We`re off to do something else," he added.

    Zaudhaus Creates Breakthrough Interactive Museum Exhibit for International Museum of Women
    SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 15, 2006--On March 8, the International Museum of Women (www.imow.org) will launch Imagining Ourselves, an interactive multi-lingual gallery featuring over 300 interpretations from women answering the question, "What defines your generation?" The exhibit and technology platform, designed and developed by Zaudhaus Design Group (www.zaudhaus.com), is the first of many future exhibits the Museum plans to present utilizing this unique online exhibit platform to reach a global audience. The goal of the four-month exhibit is to unite and mobilize young women to make a difference, to increase the visibility of young women`s leadership, and to connect advocacy organizations with a wider public. The site showcases stories from the Imagining Ourselves book (released in conjunction with the exhibit) in an online forum where visitors can not only read (and view) the stories, but also contribute their own personal anecdotes, photos, and comments. This global exhibit encourages organizations and community groups around the world to create local gatherings and community events to celebrate this generation of young women, to experience the Imagining Ourselves project, to share their own personal stories, and to take action. Organizers can establish event announcements on the site and then return after the event and post photos and event summaries.


    What is an online global exhibit?

    In starting the project, Zaudhaus studied the characteristics of museum exhibits and explored ways to translate the experience online. In a physical museum, a typical visitor experiences exhibits in two different ways. First, she `browses` exhibits as she walks from point to point, gazing at different items in the museum space. When she notices something that catches her eye, she `engages` with the exhibit, noting the detail and contemplating the larger significance of the work. Zaudhaus mimicked this duality by creating both a `gallery` view of a story -- showcasing the high level summary of a story, as if from `afar` -- and a `detail` view -- where a visitor can delve deeper into a story and actually participate in discussion. "The exhibit is extremely engaging," says Amy Kopp, Zaudhaus Product Manager. "It was important to us to allow for many different vantage points and entries of engagement. The ability to add your story or comment allows you to be a part of this changing exhibit, and thus become an exhibitor yourself."

    As a global site, the International Museum of Women exhibit presented a variety of challenges to the Zaudhaus team -- from multiple language support to working with a wide range of platforms and browsers. From the start, the Museum and Zaudhaus wanted to ensure that a wide audience of `attendees` would be welcome at the exhibit. Zaudhaus used their considerable experience to make sure that all aspects of the site could be easily translated and `localized` in the system. The site supports English, Spanish, French, and Arabic, can manage up to 20% line length increases in translated text, and reverses the entire text flow to accommodate the Arabic right-to-left reading style. Additionally, after much experimentation and study, Zaudhaus designed the site to account for common international technology limitations -- from bandwidth issues to legacy software challenges. With the high density of information the exhibit needs to convey, the team had to work hard to standardize the `common bar` of usability for all represented nations, without compromising the design aesthetic.

    Technical Details

    The Zaudhaus team spent a significant amount of time exploring options for technical standards that would meet the specific needs of this site. While the team initially considered using open source technologies and Linux, budget constraints and the host of built in tools it provides made Microsoft`s .NET framework the most appropriate technology to build on. "We just got so many things that were all built in," said Jesper Schultz, Lead Engineer for Zaudhaus. The exhibit also employs ON2 Technologies Flash-encoding tools for converting submitted video and audio files to Flash8 Video.

    The `gallery` view (patent pending) outlined above was conceived as a unique dynamic aspect of the site that needed special consideration in order to code. Stories are managed through the system`s content management system. The gallery view is coded to `smartly` determine the most relevant information to show visitors based on a multitude of algorithms and sophisticated programming. Thus, making the gallery view a dynamic representation of a story vs. needing editors to hand-create each gallery view.

Not a bad business model when you are over half-way to having your product on over 600 million computers plus damn near that many handhelds world-wide. How much is On2 getting for VP6 powering Flash? Don’t know because of the NDA with Adobe/Macromedia, but you can bet it will be substantial. Now about all the Google talk. Google wasn’t ever going to pay its partners for usage of its software and components. Read the Google Video PR for confirmation, or study their business model. Where On2 will make money from Google is when they switch to Flash 8/8.5/9 (whichever!). At that point, Google will have to purchase On2’s SDK’s for site maintenance and there will be a substantial upfront fee plus the requisite ongoing usage fees. Sorry. I’m out of space, and I didn’t even have time to mention the guaranteed revenues from SKYPE, XM, AOL, CTTnet, Muvee, Tencent, and Leapster. Or the potential revenues from Google Talk. How about retail sales of Flix, the premier Flash developers kit (and the only one with two-pass encoding) to the two million plus web developer`s community. So sad to have run out of space with so much more to discuss…. BTW, I sincerely hope that if you are dumb enough to be shorting On2, please close your position at the end of each trading day. I’d hate to see you lose everything when the NDA’s are lifted, revenue estimates are revealed, and this triple gaps up one morning.

    On2 Technologies Announces Q1 2006 Results

    NEW YORK, May 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies, (Nachrichten) Inc. today announced its first quarter 2006 financial results. Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2006 was $1,217,000, a 245% increase from the three months ended March 31, 2005 revenue of $353,000 and a 21% increase from the three months ended December 31, 2005 revenue of $1,002,000.

    Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2006 were $2,366,000, a 63% increase from the three months ended March 31, 2005 operating expenses of $1,455,000 and a 13% increase from the three months ended December 31, 2005 operating expenses of $2,102,000. The increase in operating expenses quarter over quarter was primarily attributable to an increase in legal costs relating to the Company's previously-announced internal investigation. The Company's net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2006 was $1,179,000, as compared to a net loss of $1,302,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2005 and a net loss of $1,118,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2005.

    The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $3,287,000 as of March 31, 2006.

    "We are continuing to see a healthy contribution from follow-on revenues that flow from an existing arrangement," said James Meyer, On2's interim Chief Executive Officer. "Emblematic of that success is the continued growth of our online sales of Flix encoders and sales of Macromedia(R) Flash(R)-related software development kits (SDKs). We are particularly excited about our recently-announced software development kit for delivering live streaming video to the Flash Platform, which we have produced in partnership with Adobe. Another significant achievement in the first quarter was the public launch of TrueMobile Video, our new VP7-based mobile video streaming solution. These and other innovative and technically advanced video products reinforce the foundation for future follow-on revenues."

    On2 will host a live webcast and conference call regarding its first quarter 2006 financial results today (May 4) at 5:00 p.m. EDT.

    On2 Technologies Receives Patent for Video Optimization Technology

    NEW YORK, May 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies, (Nachrichten) Inc. announced today that it has been granted patent number 7,027,654 for advances first implemented in its TrueMotion VP6 and VP7 video compression technology. The patent was issued for an improved video compression system employing video decoding strategies that improve performance in constrained environments such as live video applications or in environments where CPU processing power is constrained.

    The patent covers two separate decoding techniques. Both techniques are applicable to a variety of video codecs, including On2's VPx series.

    The first -- which applies in particular to devices with vector processing capabilities such as Intel's MMX and XScale technologies and Motorola's AltiVec -- improves efficiency and hence decoding performance by reordering transform coefficients as they are decoded.

    The second strategy uses a family of separate but dependent post-processing filters to improve visual quality at low cost to CPU performance. Codec developers can employ this technique to achieve better visual quality on a device without greatly increasing its CPU requirements.

    "The coefficient transform patent grant is more evidence of On2's commitment to innovation," said Eric Ameres, On2's chief technical officer and executive vice president of engineering. "On2 employs the best minds in the video compression industry, and our entire management team is proud of their continued dedication to our customers and to maintaining On2 Video as the gold standard in our field."

    Internettelefonie bietet noch reichlich Potenzial

    Im Jahr 2007 erreichen die weltweiten Umsätze mit Voice-over-IP-Geräten laut Juniper Research mit mehr als 5,5 Milliarden Dollar ihren Höhepunkt – eine Ursache ist die noch immer hohe Nachfrage aus China. Anschließend prognostizieren die Analysten jedoch einen Abwärtstrend – bis 2010 werde das Marktvolumen auf drei Milliarden Dollar sinken.

    In Industrieländern ist Voice-over-IP bereits bei vielen Unternehmen etabliert – nun überlegen die IT-Verantwortlichen, wie sie mehr Nutzen aus den Investitionen ziehen können. „Sie erhoffen sich Einsparungen von einer einheitlichen Infrastruktur für Daten und Sprache sowie durch verbessertes Management“, sagt Thorsten Wichmann, Geschäftsführer von Berlecon Research. Bislang sei es kompliziert gewesen, effiziente Voice-over-IP-Infrastrukturen zu installieren. Nun seien Kinderkrankheiten wie fehlende Interoperabilität beseitigt, stabile herstellerneutrale Standards existieren.

    Vereinheitlichung hat begonnen
    Die Vereinheitlichung hat begonnen – bestätigt Michael Ganser, Geschäftsführer von Cisco Deutschland. Hintergrund: „Die Vielfalt der Infrastrukturen für Sprache, Daten und Übertragung von Bewegtbildern war ein Kostentreiber.“ Parallel würden die Chancen neuer Anwendungen erkannt: „Unternehmen beginnen den Business-Nutzen von Präsenzinformationen zu begreifen.“ Softwarelösungen etwa zeigen an, ob ein Kollege an einer Telefonkonferenz teilnimmt oder im Urlaub ist. Laut einer Umfrage von Berlecon haben jedoch erst 14 Prozent der Unternehmen entsprechende Anwendungen im Einsatz.

    Umbruch steht bevor
    Der Geschäftswelt steht in Sachen Voice over IP ein massiver Umbruch bevor, ist Cisco-Manager Ganser sicher. „Firmen in Deutschland wissen häufig noch gar nicht so recht, was mit Telefonie eigentlich möglich ist, da fehlt das Know-how.“ Das ändere sich derzeit. „Ich sehe in wenigen Ländern so viele Projekte wie in Deutschland.“ Bei der Videoübertragung etwa werde sich in den nächsten zwölf Monaten viel tun. Zu den Vorreitern gehört dabei der Dichtungshersteller Burgmann aus Wolfratshausen.

    Bei Burgmann kommunizieren Kollegen in Deutschland und Japan per Videokonferenz, die auf Internet-Technologie basiert. Wichtigste Motivation zur Einführung entsprechender Lösungen bei Burgmann war die Konsolidierung der IT-Plattformen. Dazu gehört auch die Zusammenfassung der Informationen über Mitarbeiter in einem einheitlichen Verzeichnis. Darin finden sich auch spezielle Fähigkeiten wie Produktkenntnisse oder Fremdsprachen. Auch Media Saturn hat seine Infrastruktur einheitlich auf den IP-Standard umgestellt. Das vereinfacht zudem das Unified Messaging: Alle Kommunikationskanäle werden von einer einheitlichen Plattform aus verwaltet.

    „Ein Vorteil ist, dass der Anwender seine Erreichbarkeit über unterschiedliche Dienste steigert“, so Firmensprecher Bernhard Taubenberger. Eingehende E-Mails, Faxe und Voice-Mails werden in einer Standardanwendung gesammelt und stehen dem Nutzer ortsunabhängig zur Verfügung. Zudem werden Kosten gespart, weil eingehende Nachrichten aus unterschiedlichen Quellen abgerufen werden. Im Ausland könnten Nachrichten der Mailbox von den Mitarbeitern günstig mit dem Notebook empfangen werden, so Taubenberger. „Das lässt sich per Internet-Zugang über das drahtlose lokale Netz im Hotel realisieren.“

    On2 Technologies Announces Q2 2006 Results

    NEW YORK, July 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies, (Nachrichten) Inc. today announced its second quarter 2006 financial results. Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2006 was $1,535,000, a 344% increase from the three months ended June 30, 2005 revenue of $346,000 and a 26% increase from the three months ended March 31, 2006 revenue of $1,217,000.

    Operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2006 were $3,082,000, a 118% increase from the three months ended June 30, 2005 operating expenses of $1,416,000 and a 30% increase from the three months ended March 31, 2006 operating expenses of $2,366,000. The increase in operating expenses quarter over quarter was primarily attributable to an increase in stock based compensation expense and recruiting and relocation expenses. Of the Q2 operating expenses, over 18% were legal expenses related to the company's internal investigation and recruiting/relocation expenses. The Company's net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2006 was $1,549,000, as compared to a net loss of $1,141,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2005 and a net loss of $1,179,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2006.

    As of June 30, 2006, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $2,776,000 and current assets of $3,886,000.

    "The second quarter marks the fourth quarter of sustained growth, with double digit or greater revenue growth in each of those quarters," said Bill Joll, On2's President and Chief Executive Officer. "At the same time as we have increased revenues, we have also succeeded in broadening our business into diverse geographies and customer segments. During the second quarter, we picked up 70 new customers of whom four were new major customers. Our increased customer and geographical diversity means that no major customer represented greater than 16% of our revenue and no one region contributed more than 40% of the total revenue. The segments we served included video entertainment sites, content hosting sites, embedded devices, and the mobile market, and we continued to have success with our regular business of our Flix(R) transcoding and encoding software for Adobe(R) Flash(R) and sales of Flash-related software development kits (SDKs). In another major achievement, in the quarter ended June 30, 2006, the company generated cash, excluding legal fees relating to the investigation, recruiting expenses, and Sarbanes- Oxley consulting costs. On2 is on a solid foundation for building future recurring revenue streams."

    On2 will host a live webcast and conference call regarding its second quarter 2006 financial results today (July 27) at 5:00 p.m. EDT.

    Skype-Gründer wollen Videos übers Internet vertreiben

    Skype-Gründer Zennström setzt nun auf Video und TV-Sendungen via






    Entwicklung einer Plattform» Unter dem Codename „The Venice Project“ wollen die beiden Skype- und Kazaa-Gründer eine Plattform entwickeln, die TV-Sendungen und Videos über das Internet verbreitet. Dabei soll es von Anfang an vollkommen legal zugehen.

    Wie aus US-Presseberichten hervorgeht, haben Niklas Zennström und Janus Friis in mehreren Städten der Welt Software-Entwickler für das neue Projekt engagiert, darunter auch in New York, London und Venedig. Die Plattform wird den Berichten zufolge zum Teil von Zennström selbst finanziert.

    Ob auch Ebay Geld für das Projekt ausgeben will, ist derzeit noch unklar. Zennström und Friis hatten vergangenes Jahr ihr Internettelephonie-Unternehmen Skype an das Autkionshaus verkauft, sind ihrem alten Unternehmen jedoch treu geblieben. Die Konzernmutter soll jedenfalls der Entwicklung von „The Venice Project“ zugestimmt haben.

    Von Anfang an dabei

    Über Internet-Tauschbörsen ist es schon lange möglich, sich aktuelle US-Serien wenige Stunden nach ihrer Ausstrahlung herunterzuladen. Urheberrechtlichen Probleme wie bei der Musiktauschbörse Kazaa, die ursprünglich auch von Zennström und Friis entwickelt wurde, will man bei dem neuen Projekt von Anfang an aus dem Weg gehen.

    Frühestens im Herbst werde es eine offizielle Ankündigung geben. Bereits jetzt würden Kontakte zu Fernsehsendern geknüpft und erste Gespräche geführt. Derzeit bietet fast jeder US-Sender Teile von Serien im Internet an. Bei iTunes sind gut 150 US-Serien zu finden.

    On2 Technologies Announces Release of On2 Flix Publisher 2.0
    THURSDAY, DECEMBER 07, 2006 7:47 AM
    - PR Newswire

    NEW YORK, Dec 07, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc., (ONT) , a leading developer of video compression software solutions, announced today that it has released On2 Flix(R) Publisher 2.0, a new Flash(R) video encoding solution for social networking, user-generated content (UGC) websites, enterprises, and news agencies.

    On2 Flix Publisher is a fully customizable software development kit. It can be branded by the website owner and integrated directly into their web pages, giving users a seamless branded experience in encoding, previewing and submitting videos.

    On2 Flix Publisher empowers users to automatically encode and publish videos to websites using only the web browser on their PCs with simple drag and drop operation. On2 Publisher encodes videos within the browser on a user's PC in On2 VP6 for Flash format, the compression format licensed by Adobe(R) from On2 as the video format for Adobe Flash Player 8.

    For website operators, On2 Flix Publisher enables significant cost savings within the video submission process. All videos are encoded to site-defined requirements and uploaded to the site servers, ready for immediate publishing.

    Using On2 Flix Publisher, sites are able to control their expenditures on video transcoding servers, upload bandwidth, and storage space, resulting in substantial cost savings, both in infrastructure and labor, which are among the largest operating cost elements for video websites. Users are able to preview the quality of their video playback prior to submission to the video website, in addition to minimizing expertise and time required for users to submit videos to such sites.

    "On2 Flix Publisher is a good example of how On2 is working behind the scenes in the revolution that is underway with UGC and social networking on the web," said to Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2. "Video sites have struggled to convert the videos they receive to Flash, dealing with multiple file formats, transcoding server costs, and wasted bandwidth as users upload poorly compressed files. On2 Flix Publisher provides an elegant solution and introduces efficiency into this costly process by removing transcoding servers altogether, employing the processing power of the user's desktop, and compressing into the superior VP6 for Flash format prior to upload, thus reducing upload bandwidth consumption. For users, the innovative approach we have devised for publishing video allows anyone to become a video publisher and grow the universe of video creation and consumption through fundamentally easier, faster and new ways of producing and publishing video."

    Flash has become the de facto standard video format on the web, with most UGC and social networking sites using Flash video almost exclusively. With the introduction of On2 VP6 for Flash 8 video, which renders video in higher quality at lower bandwidths than previous versions of Flash, such sites are moving to the new format through On2 Flix Publisher and On2's other Flix products. As the developer of On2 VP6, On2 is the largest provider of Flash 8 video encoding software and solutions.

    On2 has licensed On2 Flix Publisher to a number of organizations that remain to be announced. For more information about licensing On2 Flix Publisher, visit www.on2.com or write to sales@on2.com

    On2 Technologies to Showcase New Innovations in Mobile-Video at 3GSM World Congress

    TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Feb. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc., (AMEX: ONT), a leader in video compression software and solutions, announced today that it will showcase new innovations for driving popular User Generated Content and other Internet Flash video to mobile phones and other embedded video platforms at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, February 12-15, 2007. As part of its broad showcase, On2 will also feature solutions based on its award winning VP7 advanced video compression, including its TrueMobile(TM) system for highly efficient end-to-end mobile video and high-definition video playback on low-power devices.

    Flash video for Mobile: A ubiquitous Flash video experience will be demonstrated with Flash video playback on mobile handsets and embedded processors for set top boxes and other portable and mobile devices. Flash video based on On2's VP6 compression schemes licensed by Adobe for Flash Player 8 and later, is the predominant format for Internet video.

    "Flash Video is the fastest growing video format on the Internet and is poised to transform the user experience on mobile handsets and consumer devices," said Francisco Kattan, director for product marketing and developer relations, Mobile and Devices at Adobe. "We are working closely with On2 and other partners in the mobile market to bring highly optimized Flash Video solutions to such devices and are excited about On2's showcase at 3GSM offering an early glimpse of what lies ahead in 2007."

    Mobile video for 2.5G and beyond: On2's TrueMobile system promises mobile video for the largest number of handsets across the most networks, including 2.5G, 3G and 4G networks.

    Cisco schwimmt auf Video-Welle



    Starkes globales Wachstum» Der Bedarf an immer leistungsstärkeren Internet-Verbindungen treibt Umsatz und Gewinn beim weltgrößten Netzwerkausrüster Cisco Systems kräftig an.

    Der US-Konzern steigerte in dem am 27. Januar beendeten zweiten Geschäftsquartal den Umsatz um 27,3 Prozent auf 8,4 Milliarden Dollar und den Gewinn um 39,7 Prozent auf 1,9 Milliarden Dollar (1,5 Milliarden Euro). Das teilte das Unternehmen nach Börsenschluss gestern mit. Cisco profitiert unter anderem von der steigenden Nachfrage nach Computernetzen, die für Videoübertragungen geeignet sind.

    Cisco mit Sitz in San Jose (Kalifornien) stellt Router und Schaltgeräte für Internet-, Telekommunikations- und andere Firmen her, die das Rückgrat des Internets und der Computernetze von Firmen und anderer Großkunden bilden. Sie wollen mit Hochleistungsnetzen für den rasant steigenden Videoverkehr auf dem Internet und hausintern gerüstet sein.

    Hinzu kam der Kauf von Scientific-Atlanta für 6,9 Milliarden Dollar im vergangenen Jahr, eines der weltgrößten Anbieter von Kabelfernseh-Settop-Boxen. Cisco ist inzwischen auch im Geschäft mit drahtlosen Routern und anderen Geräten für hausinterne Netze von Konsumenten sehr aktiv.

    Der Cisco-Aktienkurs legte angesichts der guten Ergebnisse des globalen Branchenführers nachbörslich um 4,5 Prozent 28,51 Dollar zu. Die Cisco-Aktien liegen damit momentan um 66 Prozent über ihrem Zwölfmonatstief.

    Cisco legte im zweiten Quartal beim Umsatz in seinen traditionellen Geschäftsbereichen um 18 Prozent und bei Scientific-Atlanta um 21 Prozent zu, sagte Finanzchef Dennis Powell. Man habe die Umsatz-, operativen Gewinn- sowie die Erwartungen für den Gewinn je Aktie übertroffen.

    Der QuartalsGewinn pro Aktie legte auf 31 (Vorjahr: 22) Cent zu. Unter Ausklammerung von Sonderfaktoren verdiente Cisco 33 Cent je Aktie und hat damit die Wall-Street-Erwartungen von 31 Cent je Aktie deutlich übertroffen. Der Halbjahresumsatz legte auf 16,6 (Vorjahr: 13,2) Milliarden Dollar zu und der Halbjahresgewinn auf 3,5 (2,6) Milliarden Dollar oder 56 (42) Cent je Aktie.

    Adobe's Flash Video to Play on Mobile Phones, New Transcoding System to be Unveiled This Week at 3GSM in Barcelona

    The Flash video ecosystem has has become the most widely deployed platform for streaming video on the Web. Video sharing sites, news organizations, governments, institutions and many others use the platform. Most of Adobe's installed base, some 80 percent, are using Flash 8 and/or 9.

    Beginning this year, Flash 8 and 9 files will be transcoded for streaming video to mobile devices. News of this development will be announced next week at the 3GSM World Congress, the huge wireless industry trade show in Barcelona.

    The technology has been created by On2 Technologies, a video compression company based in the U.S. The company's video compression technology is licensed to Adobe for use in Flash 8 and 9. The video compression software is also sold directly to content developers and video sharing sites.

    The new system for wireless transcoding is called Flix Engine 3GPP. It will initially support the H.263 and AMR-NB 3GPP formats. On2 has the exclusive rights to transcode Flash files.

    Content developers and carriers will have the ability to transcode Flash files and make them available directly to wireless users.

    The system provides compression of video files, making them as much as one quarter of as big as similar size files. Making video files smaller is of crucial interest to wireless carriers, many who are daunted by the expected bandwidth demands of streaming video.

    Bill Joll, On2's CEO visited Beet.TV on Thursday to explain this and share a demo. Bill and his crew are now in Spain.

    (Note: YouTube uses Flash 7 and news of Verizon's distribution of some YouTube clips to mobile devices is unrelated to this development.) :eek::eek:

    On2 Technologies Unveils Solution for Delivering Web Video Content to 3GPP Mobile Devices at 3GSM World Congress
    MONDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2007 8:00 AM - PR Newswire

Among the desirable features is the ability to convert On2 VP6 files used in Flash video, and dominant in video portals and user generated content, to 3GPP formats.

    Flix Engine 3GPP builds on the heritage of On2's Flix Engine 8 as the premier Flash video creation platform based on On2 VP6 codec licensed by Adobe for Flash Player 8. The Flix Engine 3GPP's added capabilities gives video portals, user generated content sites, and service providers the ability to simultaneously create Flash video and 3GPP files for serving mobile and non-mobile users with the leading format for each service.

    "For the first time, web content can easily be made available for mobile services," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2 Technologies. "On2 VP6 based Flash video has taken the Internet world by storm with the creation of tremendous amounts of new content, but that content was not available on mobile devices until now. The new Flix Engine 3GPP changes that."

    On2 Flix Engine is the leading server-based encoding platform for Adobe's Flash Player 8 and used by media companies, service providers and enterprises as a primary Flash video encoding solution. Flix Engine 3GPP will initially support H.263 and AMR-NB 3GPP formats.

    On2 Technologies Receives Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2007 8:00 AM
    - PR Newswire

    TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Feb 27, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc. (ONT) , a leader in video compression software and solutions, announced today that it is the recipient of the 2006 Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award in the field of advanced video compression, in recognition of its TrueMotion VP7 video codec.

    Frost & Sullivan selected On2 TrueMotion VP7 on the criteria of new research resulting in innovations that have or are expected to bring significant contributions to the industry in terms of adoption, change, and competitive posture, based on an independent analysis of compression technologies for 2006.

    "VP7 continues On2's tradition of providing the best codec available at the time for target applications, and represents the pioneering work On2 conducts in the field of video compression," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2. "Building on the success of earlier VP6 as the de facto Internet video standard with Adobe(R) Flash(R) video, VP7 was designed for bandwidth sensitive applications and real time video solutions, such as mobile video, high definition, and video conferencing. VP7 is already the codec for market leading applications in these segments and its adoption continues to proliferate."

    Since its introduction, On2 VP7 has been adopted by such well known communications services as Skype video calling and AOL's video Instant Messaging, accounting for over 200M deployments, and growing.
    Frost & Sullivan's analysts interviewed hundreds of companies and conducted extensive primary and secondary research to determine those most worthy of recognition. The judging criteria included pace of research, the potential impact of the innovation on an industry, and breadth of intellectual property related to the innovation, such as patents.

    "On2's VP7 codec insists on seamless video streaming without affecting the video quality, catering not only to broadband users but also dial-up users. Mobile video applications are highly benefited as the codec enables superior compression suitable for on-demand and live video feeds," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Narendran Vaideeswaran.

    TrueMotion VP7 is the next generation video compression technology to On2's VP6 codec, currently licensed to Adobe and the video for Adobe Flash Player 8, the predominant video format for Internet video and user generated content sites. Both codecs compress large video content into small files with virtually no loss in quality, allowing quality video to be delivered to devices with limited bandwidth connectivity. One of the unique features of VP7 is the ability to control the minimum and maximum rate at which video data is streamed.

    ThinkEquity Positive on On2 Technologies (ONT)
    2007-01-17
    09:33:29 by StreetInsider.com
    CONTRIBUTOR http://notablecalls.blogspot.com/

    ThinkEquity is positive on On2 Technologies (AMEX: ONT) saying the shares have retreated roughly 20% after a solid run up into the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). However, they believe 2007 is shaping up to be different than previous years, when ONT stock has fallen and remained out of favor (post-CES) in accordance with static financial results. Based on conversations with several industry contacts at CES, the firm believes that On2's sales pipeline is building better than their previously expected, giving them confidence to raise both their estimates and price target, as well as move up their breakeven estimate to 1Q'07. Firm reiterates On2 as their top pick for 2007.

    According to checks, they believe that On2's pipeline is shaping up to outperform expectations. More promising, in firm's view, is that the company is also seeing an uptick relative to its average licensing deal, which they believe ranges from $60,000 to $100,000. This, coupled with a shift to a growing number of royalty or residual-based transaction structures, gives them increased confidence in the company's ability to outperform estimates.

    Price tgt is raised to $1.70 from $1.40.

    Kulabyte and On2 Technologies Announce Licensing of On2 VP6 for Adobe(R) Flash(R) Video for Kulabyte(TM) Professional Encoding Solution Suite
    TUESDAY, APRIL 03, 2007 8:00 AM
    - PR Newswire


    TARRYTOWN, N.Y. and SAN MARCOS, Texas, April 3, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc., (ONT) , the leading provider of video compression software and solutions, and Kulabyte, a leading provider of advanced audio and video processing technologies, announced today a licensing agreement for On2 VP6 compression schemes for Live and On Demand encoding, used by Adobe(R) Flash(R) Player 8 and 9, to Kulabyte for its Professional Encoding Suite. The new solution will be unveiled at the upcoming NAB convention held in Las Vegas from April 16-19, 2007.

    Under this agreement, On2 VP6 compression schemes will be supported in Kulabyte Professional Encoding Suite, giving customers the ability to achieve significantly faster encoding speeds for the popular Flash video format, which is rapidly becoming the dominant format for video on the web and the format of choice among user generated content sites and social networking sites.

    The Kulabyte Professional Encoding Suite is a patent-pending multi-core encoding system that achieves significantly faster encoding speeds and higher quality video than standard encoding solutions, giving programmers the ability to produce content in desired formats with greater efficiency and economies of scale. In a typical video production workflow, compressing video for the desired distribution platform is the bottleneck to presenting users with content in a timely way. The advantages of faster encoding are particularly desirable for time sensitive content such as news, sports and live broadcasting.

    "Faster encoding times have been a constant request from customers, particularly as the amount of content being created for Flash Player 8 is exploding with the majority of Internet video and social networking sites adopting VP6 based Flash video as the chosen format," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2. "While VP6 in itself is one of the most efficient formats, Kulabyte has changed the paradigm for what can be achieved with multi-core hardware platforms to significantly overcome challenges that traditional encoding hardware could not."

    Kulabyte's Professional Encoding Suite provides multi-core processing enhancements to the video encoding process. Kulabyte-enabled Flash video is encoded in standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) formats at up to 16 times faster encoding speeds than standard industry encoders. Kulabyte Professional's speed increases proportionately as processor cores are added, ensuring virtually limitless attainable encoding speeds.

    "As both content producers and IPTV networks demand greater bandwidth efficiencies, and as the lines between Internet and professional-grade video blur, our customers see a need for enhancing industry-standard video software and hardware solutions with KulaByte technology and On2 codecs," said Chris Gottschalk, President and CTO of Kulabyte . "The On2 VP6 codec is nearly universal in its availability, and now it will perform faster to meet the increasing demands of media companies, programmers and social networking sites."

    Kulabyte offers 2-pass variable bit rate (VBR) encoding in both live and/or on-demand broadcasting, which enables media companies to realize superior picture quality, faster encoding speeds and optimized bandwidth utilization. The Kulabyte Professional encoding solution with On2 VP6 will be available in the 2nd quarter of 2007.

    The Kulabyte Professional Encoding Suite with On2 VP6 will be unveiled at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention in Las Vegas, April 16 at the Kulabyte booth #SL13713, in the lower level of the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

    ThinkEquity is positive on On2 Tech (ONT)
    2007-04-03 09:01:18 by StreetInsider.com
    From Notable Calls

    ThinkEquity is positive on On2 Tech (AMEX: ONT) saying their channel checks over the last six weeks instill greater confidence that On2 could outperform firm's 1Q revenue estimate, which they have revised up from $2.36M to $2.45M. Specifically, takeaways are that On2's existing customer base is seeing better than expected growth in their respective businesses which should translate into higher levels of royalty-based revenue. Firm also believes average deal sizes continued to improve in 1Q. Increased confidence in 1Q trends leads them to believe On2 can achieve non-GAAP profitability this quarter, and as such, causes them to raise price target from $1.70 to $2.10.

    Firm reiterates ONT as their top pick. ONT shares currently trade at 26.7x 2008 Non-GAAP diluted EPS estimate of $0.06, relative to its peer group at 24x-35x, and projected 3-year EPS growth of 35%. With a relatively fixed cost structure and growing level of highly profitable, recurring revenue, and most recent checks that indicate On2 should outperform firm's estimates and achieve profitability in 1Q, they have adjusted their forward P/E multiple on ONT from 28x to 35x.

    Notablecalls: Expect to see some buy interest in ONT.

    Why is On2 Technologies so Hot?
    March 04th, 2007 by Francis Potter
    Adobe Flash | YouTube | On2 | Brightcove

    I seem to be the only blogger writing about On2 Technologies regularly. That’s because I see On2 as uniquely placed to make a killing in today’s explosive global obsession with online video. Here’s why: Videos encoded with On2’s VP6 codec look stunningly terrific and travel light. The decoder is inside nearly every browser on the planet, since it lives in Flash Player. And On2 maintains complete control over the encoding software. Read my complete overview after the jump.

    First, let’s look at how videos encoded in VP6 look terrific relative to the older Sorenson Sparc codec, which also appears in Flash Player. As a quick test, I compared the same frame from the Spider-Man 3 Trailer on YouTube (which uses Sparc) …



    … with the same clip on Brightcove (which uses VP6) …



    Notice how the VP6 image is crisper and cleaner. It’s easy to see the difference on flat surfaces such as Spider-Man’s right eye. With VP6, it really seems you’re looking at a real object; the Sparc version is fuzzy and unclear.

    Of course, this is not a scientific comparison: we don’t know what encoding settings are used, or the source of the original clip for each case. Nor have we analyzed the way each encoder handles motion between frames; video encoding is much more complex than simply encoding a stream of images. Plus, I made JPEGs for the blog, which adds its own encoding. And, of course, in a more sophisticated analysis (one that takes, say, a week instead of 10 minutes), we would look at file sizes too, to see how they each optimize bandwidth.

    Want to know how it works? Go ahead and read the patent — it’s full of cryptic phrases that only a specialized mathematician would understand:

    An improved video decompression process comprising the steps of: filling substantially all of a video fiarne’s coefficient buffers with 0’s before starting coefficient decoding; extracting a coefficient of a transform for a token from a bitstream in zig zag order; placing coefficient values which are non-zero into a ordered coefficient buffer for case of use in an inverse transform, the order of the non-zero coefficient values dependent upon a type of processor that will be reconstructing the video frame.

    Try whipping that up in Python or Ruby.

    That’s just the technical side. What makes VP6 — and On2 Technologies — important from a business standpoint is the Macromedia (now Adobe) deal to put VP6 inside Flash Player. The move ensured the decoder would appear in virtually every browser on the planet (technically only 94.2% of the planet’s browsers, but that’s still a lot of decoders).

    Of course, Quicktime Player and Windows Media Player are nearly ubiquitous too. But Flash Player is a much more compelling tool for content providers because it enables them to build their own players. Consider this. If you run a web site, and you choose to host a video in Quicktime format, your users have to see the Quicktime logo — not your logo — while they wait for the video to start. They have to use the Quicktime player controls, which are nice controls, but they are the same on every site. It’s great for Apple, Inc., and anyone without access to a specialized encoder, but otherwise very, very dull.



    With Flash Player, content providers can design their own logo and controls, enhancing their brand. And they can add other features to the player, such as menus and data displays that overlay the video, social networking and sharing controls, or interactive advertising. Check out the way Brightcove partially overlays their menu of social networking options (left).

    Flash Player provides a better overall web-based video experience than the other players. But that’s not enough to make it the global winner it is today. The key is the player’s size. Throughout Flash Player’s life, Macromedia maintained a fanatical dedication to keeping the code as small as possible. Even on slow connections, it downloads quickly. And when a Flash movie appears in a web page, it starts playing instantly. Those “loading” screens you see are for loading the content, not the player.

    (As an aside, there is a school of thought that the main reason Adobe acquired Macromedia was to have the same team clean up Adobe Reader to load as fast as Flash Player.)

    One way Macromedia kept the player so small is by severely limiting what it can do — especially in the area of decoding media. Quicktime Player and Windows Media Player support dozens of codecs. But in Flash Player, dynamically loaded images must be JPG or PNG. Audio must be MP3. And video must be Sparc or VP6.

    So when On2 convinced Macromedia to put VP6 into Flash Player, they plugged into the dream distribution channel — an exclusive, limited method to get their decoder into the world’s browsers quickly and easily, and in a way that content providers love to utilize.

    But — and this is key — Flash Player only includes the decoder.



    To actually make a VP6-encoded video, you need On2 licensed software. It’s patented software. On2 maintains a crack legal team to defend the patent. And the encoder can cost hundreds of dollars (for a desktop version) to almost $4,000 per server. So On2 has something akin to a monopoly in a very rapidly growing sphere. Furthermore, they aren’t resting on their laurels. They are developing new codecs (including VP7, which is already out) and getting their decoder into more places (such as phones) all the time.

    I’m not an encoding specialist, nor am I a Wall Street whiz. But I am a technology guy, and I know something hot when I see it. So I maintain that the long-term victory from the current hysteria around online video is not going to end up with YouTube, or even with Adobe. They both have big costs, and monetization challenges. On2 will win either way.

    On2 Technologies Selects Widevine for VP6 for Flash(R) Video Copy Protection Capabilities
    THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2007 8:00 AM
    - PR Newswire


    TARRYTOWN, N.Y. and SEATTLE, April 12, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc. (ONT) , a leader in video-compression software and solutions, and Widevine(R) Technologies, Inc., the world's leading provider of downloadable content protection, forensic watermarking and digital copy protection solutions, are partnering to secure On2's popular VP6 used in Adobe(R) Flash(R) Player 8 and 9.

    For the first time VP6 for Flash video will have integrated DRM capabilities for content owners and service providers to secure the distribution and consumption of content delivered to PCs and other consumer devices. On2's VP6 for Flash is the dominant video format used by leading Internet video sites, user generated content sites, and social networking sites, such as ABC, CBS, ESPN, Fox, and MTV. Applying Widevine's DRM to VP6 will further enable adoption of VP6 for Flash.

    "VP6 helped create the benchmark for Internet video quality and ease of use which resulted in mass adoption of Internet video services such as user generated content and social networking sites," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2 Technologies. "With Widevine's content protection, it is the first time that security capabilities approved by major motion picture studios and television broadcasters are part of the VP6 for Flash solution. This will change the face of the video industry as premium content owners and broadcasters align with the copyright protection capabilities offered with VP6."

    On2 will also resell Widevine's DRM solutions to its customers with tight integration for On2's VP7 product line in use by leading video service providers including Skype, AOL, and Move Networks, in addition to VP6. The joint solution will be implemented in On2's Flix(R) for Flash encoding and publishing product line, starting with flagship Flix Engine and Flix Engine Live.

    "Content owner requirements for copyright protection are only part of the reason driving the need for content security. The launch of On2's VP6 product line for Flash with Widevine's security offers the entire Internet entertainment industry a solution that enables operators to securely deliver content with a single content protection solution that maintains advertising integrity and consumption verification -- key factors in maintaining and expanding CPM based advertising revenue," according to Brian Baker, Widevine's CEO. "Widevine and On2 continue to enable consumer flexibility while protecting the revenues of content owners."

    The joint solution will be demonstrated in Booth C1855 at the upcoming National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas, April 16-19, 2007.

    Executives from On2 and Widevine will be available to meet with press and customers.

    5 Top Micro-Cap Stocks
    By Brian D. Pacampara
    April 12, 2007

    Hey there, Fools. We're back again to help you identify some of the most attractive micro-cap stocks worthy of your investment dollars. Just as a reminder, we do this because:

    1. Underfollowed micro-cap companies offer great returns -- and sometimes even the best returns.

    2. Wall Street is covering fewer stocks than ever before, and that makes now a great time to start looking for tiny treasures.

    3. Micro-cap stocks can burn you if you don't do your homework, so we try to shed more light on the asset class for you.

    Microscopic surgery
    This column uses our Motley Fool CAPS community-intelligence database to turn up promising stocks. The system asks amateur and professional investors alike to rate stocks either "outperform" or "underperform." In turn, each investor is rated, as is each stock.

    The end result is that while only huge companies like Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) have more than 15 or 20 analysts following them, CAPS harnesses the ideas of thousands to get at the long tail of the stock market with the same depth of coverage.

    Drumroll, please ...
    So without further ado, here are five CAPS stocks sporting five stars, the highest rating possible, that have market caps between $100 million and $200 million and that three or fewer professional analysts are covering.

    As always, don't view these stocks as hearty formal recommendations, but rather as appetizing starters for further analysis. Agreed?

    Now that we have that settled, On2 Technologies and SORL Auto Parts might just be two small wonders worthy of your Foolish due diligence.

    Onto bigger and better things
    When companies lay claim to having the "next big thing," a Foolish dose of skepticism always comes in handy. However, On2 Technologies, winner of the 2006 Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation, may actually have something to hang its hat on.

    According to many, On2's TrueMotion codec allows services to deliver streaming video with unmatched image quality. I'm no tech guru, but when names such as Adobe (Nasdaq: ADBE), Electronic Arts, Skype, and even XM Satellite Radio are wholeheartedly adopting a company's technology, the stock is definitely worth a second (or even fifth) look.

    On2 has yet to turn a profit, but the stock has more than doubled in the past year -- fueled primarily by 200% revenue growth. In addition, On2 was recently recommended by Merriman Curhan Ford -- one of CAPS' and Wall Street's best.

    CAPS All-Star upanddown100 also thinks On2's on to something:

    On2 makes the best codec for the ubiquitous FLASH video and sells encoding platforms for social networking sites and individual developers. ... The revenue model here is "back-end loaded" (in other words royalties, royalties, and more royalties) so once On2 hits critical mass in the mass media -- the profitability of the company will go through the proverbial roof.

    Adobe Media Player: Adobes erster Desktop-Media-Player noch in diesem Jahr



    Dem Flash-Video-Boom sei Dank, wird Adobe noch in diesem Jahr mit dem Adobe Media Player eine Applikation ausliefern, die auf das Betrachten dieser Videos spezialisiert ist.
    Zufall? Microsoft kündigte auf der National Association of Broadcasters Trade Show in Las Vegas mit Microsoft Silverlight einen neuen Konkurrenten zu Adobe Flash an [1] . Und Adobe nutzte just die selbe Veranstaltung um zu verkünden, dass es seinen ersten Desktop Media Player entwickelt, der noch in diesem Jahr erscheinen soll.

    Adobe ist bereits äußerst erfolgreich auf dem boomenden Online-Video-Markt, dank seines Flash-Players, den nahezu jeder Browser-Anwender installiert hat. Mit dem Adobe Media Player will Adobe noch einen Schritt weiter gehen: Künftig sollen Anwender die Videos direkt in der neuen Applikation betrachten können, auch wenn keine Internet-Verbindung besteht, sie also das Video vorher heruntergeladen haben. Die Anbieter der Videos können dem eigentlichen Video noch eine Werbung hinzufügen, bevor der Anwender das Video herunterlädt.
    Bisher ist bekannt, dass der Adobe Media Player nur Flash-Videos wiedergeben wird. Unklar bleibt, ob dieser Player auch in der Lage sein wird, andere Multimedia-Inhalte abzuspielen und damit in Konkurrenz zu Windows Media Player, Itunes, Quicktime & Co. tritt. Die enorme Beliebtheit von Flash-Videos könnte dem Adobe Media Player Pluspunkte bei den Anwendern bringen.

    Zu den Funktionen des Adobe Media Players soll auch die Vollbild-Wiedergabe von Videos gehören. Außerdem sollen die Betrachter von Videos diese bewerten können. Über eine Favoriten-Funktion soll der Player in der Lage sein, automatisch Videos aus dem Netz zu saugen, die der Anwender mag. Die Anbieter von Videos werden festlegen können, ob Anwender die Videos herunterladen dürfen und sie auch mit einem Kopierschutz versehen können.

    Die finale Version soll noch in diesem Jahr erscheinen. Vorher wird Adobe noch eine Beta-Version zum Download anbieten. Für die Entwicklung des Players kommt Adobes neue, plattformübergreifende Apollo Application Runtime [2] zum Einsatz.

    Skype's founders' next target: TV

    Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis plan to one-up YouTube by streaming legal video onto your TV.

    Fortune's Mark Halper reports.
    By Mark Halper, Fortune contributor
    April 20 2007: 9:58 AM EDT

    (Fortune Magazine) -- Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis aren't used to competition like this. The maverick duo that rocked the telecom and music industries with their Internet startups Skype and Kazaa are now trying to shake up the TV world with their latest Web company, Joost. This time there's a different landscape out there.

    Joost provides free software that turns PCs and Internet-equipped TV sets into screens that can fetch any video to which Joost has acquired the rights. Joost streams videos to end users who watch for free but can't save the content. It plans to make money by selling advertising when it launches commercially in June, sharing revenue with content providers. "We want to liberate people from having to wait for a TV show to start at eight o'clock," says Zennstrom, who founded the Luxembourg company with Friis last year as the Venice Project and changed the name to Joost in January.

    But haven't we heard about the death of traditional TV before? Now that more than 300 million people around the world have broadband lines to support video, the competition is fierce. From startups to big telecom companies to broadcasters, it seems everyone is trying to change the way we watch TV and films.

    Take Silvio Scaglia, whose Milan company Fastweb was an early pioneer of broadband-delivered TV and video. Scaglia has just launched his latest venture, Babelgum, based in Dublin, which has the same business model as Joost's. Scaglia has put about $13 million of his own money into Babelgum, and he's not about to cede the market to a couple of guys known for VoIP and music sharing. "We're in this for the long run," says Scaglia.

    Then there's BitTorrent, the San Francisco downloading service that, after making a name for itself by providing pirated videos, has gone legit, signing distribution deals with at least 40 content providers, including Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., and MGM (Charts, Fortune 500). BitTorrent co-founder and president Ashwin Navin says his market for selling downloadable, storable video is different from Joost's free, streamed, ad-supported content. But, he points out, "Joost has to be concerned over why it's a better experience than YouTube, which has comprehensive content and will be improving its quality over time."

    Zennstrom's answer: Joost's video quality and rights protection far outshine anything YouTube and its imitators offer. That's because Joost uses a peer-to-peer distribution technology, not unlike the one behind Skype, that enables it to deliver full-screen, high-quality video compared with the low resolution on YouTube. And with YouTube parent Google (Charts, Fortune 500) being sued by Viacom (Charts) for $1 billion for posting unauthorized video, Zennstrom is preaching the legitimate acquisition of content. "If you don't have content," he says, "it's not going anywhere."

    Joost CEO Frederick de Wahl says the company will have acquired rights to 10,000 to 20,000 hours of programming by the time it goes live. In February, Joost picked up MTV and other content from Viacom, adding it to a list that already includes National Geographic and "Big Brother" creator Endemol.

    "Joost, unlike YouTube, understands copyright," says Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman. He also praised Joost for allowing Viacom to sell its own ads and to link viewers back to Viacom's Web sites. But lest Joost get too confident, Viacom has also struck similar deals with other companies, such as BitTorrent. And other traditional media companies, including NBC and News Corp. (Charts), are making their own Internet moves.

    The ultimate test will be whether Joost signs up advertisers. Zennstrom, who is an active board member, says Joost already has commitments from, among others, Philips, T-Mobile, Perrier, Unilever, Wrigley, L'Oréal and IBM. "We don't have any problems getting meetings with the top people in these companies," says Zennstrom. That's what comes of having staked out a reputation as a successful radical who is ready to apply a more mainstream business model. Now, may the best maverick win.

    On2 Technologies Announces Q1 2007 Financial Results
    Thursday May 3, 4:05 pm ET
    Company achieves operational profitability with record quarterly revenue of $2.8M representing 33% growth over the previous quarter ended December 31, 2006

    TARRYTOWN, N.Y., May 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc. (Amex: ONT - News), a leader in video compression software and solutions, today announced its first quarter 2007 financial results.

    Revenue increased 131% to $2,815,000 for the three months ended March 31 2007 as compared with $1,217,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2006. Revenue increased 33% for the three months ended March 31, 2007 from revenue of $2,117,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2006.

    Operating expenses increased 11% to $2,619,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2007 as compared with $2,366,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2006, an increase of 8% as compared to operating expenses of $2,424,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2006. The increase in operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2007 as compared with the three months ended March 31, 2006 is attributed to an increase in cost of revenue, research and development, sales and marketing expenses and equity based compensation, partially offset by a decrease in general and administrative expenses. The increase in operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2007 as compared with the three months ended December 31, 2006 is attributed to an increase in cost of revenue, research and development and sales and marketing expenses.

    Income from operations was $196,000 as compared with a loss from operations of $(1,149,000) for the three months ended March 31, 2007 and 2006, respectively.

    Net loss was $721,000 as compared with $1,179,000 for the three months ending March 31, 2007 and 2006, respectively. Included in the net loss of $721,000 is $914,000 in other expense for the change in the estimated fair value of a derivative liability associated with warrants issued in connection with the Company's August 2006 private placement of common stock.

    The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $5,281,000 at March 31, 2007 as compared with $4,961,000 at December 31, 2006, an increase of 6%.

    "The first quarter of 2007 marks our seventh straight quarter of sustained growth, with double-digit or greater revenue growth in each of those quarters. Additionally, Q1 2007 is the first quarter in which we have achieved operational profitability," said Bill Joll, president and chief executive officer of On2. "This is a direct result and affirmation of decisions we previously made to lay a foundation for future revenue from royalty-bearing and other recurring revenue transactions. In addition, we achieved 100% growth in Flix® Engine sales in Q1 2007 over Q4 2006, as a result of improved sales performance and increasing demand for VP6-based Adobe® Flash® video. Web sales of our Flix desktop products is also on a healthy trajectory, and we are adding new marketing initiatives behind this channel. Our latest generation codec, VP7, is continuing to gain traction as well. We secured a significant deal for our TrueMobile(TM) mobile video system using VP7, which provided an unexpected boost to an already exceptional quarter."

    On2 will host a live webcast and conference call to review its first quarter 2007 financial results.

    Kulabyte(TM) Announces HD Encoding Solution for On2 Technologies VP6(TM)
    MONDAY, MAY 14, 2007 8:30 AM
    - BusinessWire

    ONT
    2.92 +0.34

    NEW YORK, May 14, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Kulabyte(TM), a leading provider of advanced audio and video processing technologies, today announced a breakthrough solution for high-definition (HD) video encoding that enables faster HD encoding with significantly higher quality levels. Kulabyte's TimeSlice(TM) technology, incorporated into the popular On2 VP6(TM) for Adobe(R) Flash(R) Player content, will enable the growing numbers of HD producers - including daily newscasters, satellite entertainment companies, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) programmers, and streaming video services - to more efficiently complete production of HD files for delivery over a variety of networks while maintaining near source quality levels.

    The announcement marks a significant advancement in the efficiency of HD encoding for Flash Player video content, the most widely-installed Internet video. Kulabyte will demonstrate the solution during Streaming Media East, May 15-16 (Booth #323 at the Hilton New York conference center).

    The announcement is the latest in a series of licensing deals that Kulabyte has made with On2 Technologies, Inc., (ONT) , the leading provider of video compression software and solutions , including the licensing of On2 VP6 to Kulabyte for professional server-based encoding and a Kulabyte-enhanced personal and professional grade desktop encoding and publishing solutions that are marketed toward consumer and user-generated content producers. The Kulabyte Professional VP6 Encoder will begin shipping to customers in June.

    "The HD production market is growing, as demand for higher-quality visual content is growing, and Kulabyte TimeSlice technology for Flash Player-ready encoding addresses the largest potential video market segment at a time when networks are bandwidth-constrained," said Gerry Kaufhold, principal analyst with In-Stat. "A cost-effective solution that enables faster HD encoding while maintaining native quality is well-timed, particularly as the U.S. digital television market prepares for a full-scale transition to all-digital broadcasts."

    At last months' National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas, Kulabyte demonstrated professional Flash1080 progressive encoding on a single server that was performed at 42.2 frames per second (fps), which is significantly faster than real-time.

    Kulabyte's patent-pending multi-core encoding technology achieves significantly faster encoding speeds and higher quality video than standard encoding allows. The advantages of faster encoding derived from Kulabyte's technology are particularly desirable for time-sensitive content such as news, sports and live broadcasting.

    "While On2's TrueMotion(R) compression schemes, including On2 VP6 for Flash Player harness the quality of the original source material while achieving high compression rates, faster encoding times is always a desired goal - particularly as high definition video becomes more pervasive," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2. "With KulaByte's Timeslice technology, faster than real time HD encoding puts that discussion to bed. On2 and KulaByte together deliver wins along all three vectors that matter - quality, time and cost."

    Kulabyte's TimeSlice technology delivers faster than real-time encoding, noticeably improved picture quality and significant bandwidth savings. Digital media creators can encode, and distribute digital content at speeds more than 12 times faster than standard industry platforms at comparable prices. The suite of Kulabyte-enabled consumer desktop VP6 products scheduled to be released in the 3rd quarter of this year.

    "Our HD customers - whether broadcast news organizations, cable programmers, or satellite services - are desperately seeking solutions that address their constrained resources. We can provide the quality levels that they seek without compromising their operational efficiencies," said Chris Gottschalk, chief technology officer of Kulabyte. "Together with On2, we are breaking new ground in the delivery of a solution for the widest possible segment of HD producers."

    On2 VP6 for Flash is becoming the dominant format for Internet video, licensed by Adobe (ADBE) for Adobe(R) Flash(R) Player 8 and 9. On2 provides the broadest range of encoding and publishing tools of any format within its Flix(R) branded products, increasingly aiding the adoption of VP6 based Flash Player video.

    "In today's online video production environment, a rapid encoding process is critical for time-to-market, and Kulabyte addresses this need for a wide cross-section of our customer set," said Chris Hock, group product manager, Flash Media Server, for Dynamic Media at Adobe. "By accelerating the encoding process for creating FLV files, the Kulabyte Professional Encoding Suite enables a faster workflow for customers."

    About Kulabyte

    Kulabyte LLC. is a leading developer of advanced video processing technologies. Based in San Marcos, Texas, Kula Media Group's engineering and management team is focused on delivering the fastest video encoding solution in the industry, while also achieving the highest video quality available.

    On2 Technologies Inc. Soars Late in the Day
    On2 Technologies Inc. (AMEX: ONT) is soaring late in the trading session, higher now by $.51, or 16.45%, to $3.61 on heavy volume of 13.1 million shares. The stock normally trades just 3.6 million shares. With smaller cap names, volume moves the price substantially in one way or another, and in this case, it appears the stock is moving as a result of some 13F filings reported with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday. Those filings disclosed positions funds and institutional investors bought and sold during the first quarter. Numerous institutions initiated new positions in On2 Technologies including American Century which established a 3.3 million share position, along with Perkins Capital to the tune of 1.07 million shares and GSA Capital Partners which purchased .72 million shares, with other institutions adding to their positions. It is unusual to see ownership for a small name and that is why there is a lot of demand for shares, not just today but over the past few days that has enabled such upside movement.

    On2 Technologies Announces Acquisition of Hantro Products, a Leader in Embedded Video TechnologyMonday May 21, 5:04 pm ET :eek::D:eek:


    TARRYTOWN, N.Y. and OULU, Finland, May 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc. (Amex: ONT - News), a leader in video compression software and solutions, announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Finland-based Hantro Products Oy, a market-leading provider of video technology for mobile devices. The acquisition is intended to accelerate the deployment of On2's technology on semiconductor chipsets that power mobile and embedded devices and to further On2's strategy for establishing a leadership position in the distribution and consumption of video on all three major device platforms used by consumers: PCs, mobile/portable devices and television.
    Hantro provides optimized video compression implementations for mobile, digital consumer-electronics and IPTV devices. The company's customers include Nokia, Freescale, LSI, Vimicro, Sanyo and over 20 other leading global device and semiconductor manufacturers. Hantro's technology has been implemented on more than 200 million devices to date and in mobile phones produced by 5 of the top 6 handset manufacturers. Hantro is recognized as the market leader in wireless video intellectual property as measured in revenue, number of shipped devices, and number of customers.

    Under the terms of the agreement, On2 will acquire Hantro in a share exchange directly with the holders of all of Hantro's equity securities for a combination of cash and shares of On2's common stock, par value $.01 per share. Immediately after the closing, the Hantro stockholders would own approximately 12% of the combined company on a pro forma basis, based on On2's closing share price of $3.38 on May 18, 2007, and Hantro would become a wholly-owned subsidiary of On2.

    The cash component of the acquisition price is approximately $6,800,000. If the volume-weighted average price for shares of On2 for the 10 trading days prior to closing is between $1.50 and $2.50 per share, the total value of the shares to be issued at the closing will equal $45,000,000 less the cash component. If the 10-day volume-weighted average share price prior to closing is $1.50 or less, the Company will pay the cash component and issue approximately 25,440,000 shares. If the 10-day volume-weighted average share price prior to closing is $2.50 per share or more, the Company will pay the cash component and issue approximately 15,300,000 shares. The number of On2 shares to be issued at closing is subject to adjustment, based on Hantro's stockholders' equity as of the date of the closing. Based on On2's closing share price of $3.38 on May 18, 2007, the total value of the acquisition at closing, before any adjustments, would be approximately $58,400,000. After giving effect to contingent consideration of up to an additional 12.5 million On2 shares based on the level of 2007 revenues from Hantro's business lines, ownership of the combined company by Hantro's shareholders could be a maximum of approximately 19% on a pro forma basis. Hantro's balance sheet as of March 31, 2007 includes approximately $4,900,000 of debt owed to Finnish financial institutions and governmental agencies. Hantro expects to generate revenues of between Euro6,000,000 and Euro9,000,000 (approximately $8,100,000 and $12,200,000) on an annualized basis for 2007, determined according to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. On2 is currently unable to provide GAAP estimates on future earnings. On2 nevertheless anticipates that the transaction will produce break-even to slightly accretive results in 2008 on a non-GAAP basis.

    "We have long set the standard for excellence in video with our codec technology. By gaining access to Hantro's technology and expertise in chip implementation, we expect to be able to extend our reach on devices," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2.

    "We are looking forward to giving our current customers access to On2's best-of-breed technology and to making the On2 TrueMotion® codecs available for the first time at the hardware level," said Eero Kaikkonen, president and CEO of Hantro. "In the device industry, ease of implementation, low power consumption, high performance and low bill of materials are important factors when evaluating technology. By combining Hantro's longstanding expertise in low power consumption hardware video designs with On2's cutting-edge video technology, we expect On2's TrueMotion® codecs will become an easy choice for embedded and mobile manufactures and service providers. By adding On2's codecs to Hantro's current offerings, we will lead the industry in highly optimized, scalable and economically viable solutions for cross-platform applications that are shaping the future of video."

    As a result of the On2 acquisition, the combined company will have a comprehensive portfolio of highly optimized VP6 and VP7 codecs and standards- based video compression technologies. The combined company will continue to support Hantro's customers with Hantro's market leading multi-format hardware video IP products offering the widest range of options for semiconductor companies developing multimedia chipsets. The combined company will offer a full range of products and capabilities for video applications ranging from very low data rates to high-definition video across web, embedded devices, consumer devices and mobile/Wi-fi applications.

    On2 seeks to broaden usage of its video technology with acquisition
    Tuesday May 22, 3:09 pm ET

    On2 Technologies Inc., which makes video compression software, is buying a Finnish company which provides video technology for mobile devices.
    If the deal is approved, Hantro Products Oy will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of On2 (AMEX: ONT - News), which is headquartered in Tarrytown, but has its research and development team in Clifton Park.

    Under the deal, Hantro shareholders would own about 12 percent of the combined company on a pro forma basis, based on On2's closing share price of $3.38 on May 18. On2 will pay $6.8 million, in addition to the stock swap. The number of shares that On2 will issue, and the percentage of the company that Hantro shareholders will own, will vary depending on On2's stock price at closing, and the Hantro shareholders' equity.

    Based on the May 18 stock price, the value of the deal would be $58.4 million. The acquisition, which is subject to On2's shareholder approval, is expected to close before mid-August 2007.

    On2 said it expected the acquisition to accelerate the deployment of its software on semiconductor chipsets for mobile devices, as Hantro has customers that include Nokia, Freescale, LSI, Vimicro, Sanyo and other semiconductor manufacturers.

    The move is part of a larger strategy to target the three major platforms, which include personal computers and television, in addition to mobile devices.

    On2 Technologies, the listed, New York-based video compression software developer, is a potential takeout target for larger software companies, according to a source familiar with the firm and an insider.

    Adobe, the listed California-based software company, and AOL the listed Virginia-based internet company, Skype Technologies, the UK-based company owned by California-based eBay, could all take out On2, a source familiar with the company said.

    An Adobe takeover of On2 has been speculation for some time, the insider said. “We do from time to time hear from third parties that a company is interested in On2,” the insider added.

    On2 has USD 60m in stock it will use for investing and acquiring, the insider said prior to the company’s 21 May announcement that it bought Finland-based Hantro Products Oy, a market-leading provider of video technology for mobile devices. The Hantro acquisition was USD 6m in cash, and approximately USD 40m in stock, based on the volume-weighted average price of On2 shares for the 10 trading days prior to closing.

    On2 has a market cap of approximately USD 362m.

    Re: On2 'By the Numbers', 2007 Q1 Update
    I wanted to make a few comments on the highlights.......

    1) The quarterly revenue growth is very impressive. The 33% QoQ growth in Q1 was the highest since Q4 '05 and average growth over the trailing 4 Q's is 23.5%.....Using the 23.5% growth projection for 2007 would yield revenues of $16M. Assuming Hantro brings $10M, the new On2 should see $26M in revenue for 2007.
    Keep in mind that On2's revs today are primarily driven through the 'sales / licensing / royalties' from encoding tools and solutions. As the TrueMobile and VP7 STB deals deploy, the revenue dynamic only gets better!

    2) The 'recurring' and 'royalty' revenue components are growing more quickly as there are more and larger growing customers contributing. The 'Recurring Revenue' (Licensing, Engineering and Royalties) from existing customers should hit $1M for Q2. In my eyes, this is the beauty in the On2 business model. There will come a time not to distant future when the 'recurring' component will pay for operations and the rest pure profit!

    3) Flix 'Engine' sales doubled over last quarter. This demonstrates the overwhelming acceptance of On2's tools in the marketplace and will also add to revenue growth as these deals are usually tied to a 'recurring' component!

    4) The number of new customers signed remains very impressive. In the last 5 Q's, since the company started reporting this breakout, On2 has signed 402 new customers. The customer list grew again last Q to 116 new accounts. In every business day last Q, Joll signed an average 1.8 contracts!

    5) On2 has been reporting 'major's' now for 4 Q's and over the past year there are 30 of them! Only a few of these have been formally announced and I've snooped out quite a few.....but needless to say, they represent some of the biggest names in the business.

    6) The company's efforts to increase sales resources and span the globe is already showing benefit. Global sales were quite balanced and Q1 showed the sales improvements from Asia and Europe. Q1 revenues from Asia were already half of 2006 and Q1 revenues from Europe almost tripled 2006!

    A few members that have joined the forum lately have stated that they don't really know the tech or the business model but do understand fundamentals. Well imo, the fundamentals now speak for themselves......On2 is 'fundamentally' a very fast growing world-class video technology that is about to take quite a few by surprise!!!

    SAN FRANCISCO, June 10 (Reuters) - Adobe Systems Inc. (ADBE.O: Quote, Profile , Research) is releasing new design tools that further blur the divide between software that runs offline on computer desktops and programs that work on the Web, the company said on Sunday.

    Adobe, a leading independent maker of software programming tools, is allowing the newest generation of Internet software, nicknamed "Web 2.0," to run both online, in Web browsers, and offline, on desktop computers, without rewriting the code.

    On Monday, the company is introducing a public test version of its software, code-named Apollo, that helps programmers to write advanced programs called Rich Internet Applications (RIA) for desktop computers, even when not connected to the Web.

    "Apollo is for when developers want to take online applications and make them work offline on a computer," Michele Turner, Adobe's vice president of platforms, said in a phone interview. "We don't think the browser is going to go away."

    Consumers stand to benefit from a more flexible generation of Web software that works both online and offline and comes from a wide range of independent software makers.

    Especially data-intensive or multimedia applications stand to benefit in situations where local wireless connections fail, for example, Turner said. These capabilities allow programmers to create simple-to-use "drag-and-drop" software that runs both online and offline.

    Among the early customers is online auction giant eBay Inc. (EBAY.O: Quote, Profile , Research), which plans to announce this week at a conference in Boston that it is using the Apollo programming language to create notification services for its sellers to manage auctions outside of an Internet browser. Sellers also can upload photos or pricing data without constantly being connected to the Web.

    Tech execs see convergence lifting broadband demand

    By Ritsuko Ando
    Reuters
    Thursday, June 21, 2007; 3:57 AM



    CHICAGO (Reuters) - Top telecommunications executives attending an industry conference this week forecast wireless, video and Internet services would increasingly converge, bolstering demand for Internet network capacity.

    Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO.O) Chief Executive John Chambers, speaking at the NXTcomm communications conference in Chicago, said demand for bandwidth would likely grow 300 percent to 500 percent each year in the next several years, a trend that will likely lift Cisco's sales of routers.

    "The transition is going to happen much quicker than people anticipate," Chambers told reporters.

    One of Cisco's clients, top U.S. telephone company AT&T Inc. (T.N), unveiled at NXTcomm a video-sharing service for its next-generation wireless customers.

    The service, called Video Share, allows users to send live videos to each other during phone conversations. A man at a baseball game, for example, can send live footage to a friend he is talking to on his mobile phone.

    AT&T said the service, initially limited to a small market, was a step toward converging video and phone communications.

    "Today, video share is a one-to-one mobile service, but you should expect this to quickly reach the other two screens, and that's the PC and the television," AT&T Chief Executive Randall Stephenson said.

    Analysts have said Apple Inc.'s (AAPL.O) iPhone, which combines a cell phone with a music and video player, will fuel the launch of more all-in-one tech gadgets from competing consumer electronic makers.

    Stephenson said AT&T's exclusive deal with Apple could help boost its market share.

    Of the one million people who have shown an early interest in the iPhone, which should go on sale on June 29, about 40 percent were not yet AT&T's wireless customers, he said.

    Geldanlage-Report-Kolumne: On2 Tech - Der neue US-Web 2.0-Star!?
    Mittwoch 6. Juni 2007, 09:06 Uhr

    Mit neuer Videokompressions-Technologie will On2 das Internet revolutionieren

    On2 Technologies (Frankfurt: 931091 - Nachrichten) ist aktuell der Hot Stock überhaupt in den USA. Die Aktie hat sich in den letzten 52 Wochen versiebenfacht. Das Unternehmen entwickelt eine Video-Kompressions-Technologie mit der Videos in geschlossene Netzwerke übermittelt werden können, beispielsweise auf Set-Top-Boxen, PCs und Handys. Die Qualitätder übermittelten Bilder soll dabei auch bei beschränkter Bandbreite exzellent sein.

    Mit der Übernahme der finnischen Hantro Products soll nun die Verwendung der Software auf Halbleiter-Chips für mobile Geräte beschleunigt werden. Zu den Kunden von Hantro zählen unter anderem Nokia (Xetra: 870737 - Nachrichten) und Sanyo.

    Mit einer Börsenbewertung von 282 Millionen Euro bei einem erwarteten Umsatz in 2007 von umgerechnet unter zehn Millionen Euro scheint die Aktie auf den ersten Blick astronomisch teuer. Doch die jüngst angekündigte Kapitalerhöhung im Umfang von über 60 Millionen Euro zeigt das Interesse institutioneller Investoren. Bereits heuer soll die Verlustzone verlassen werden.

    Unser Fazit:

    Wenn sich die Technologie durchsetzt winkt ein Milliarden-Markt. Die perfekte Aktie für Glücksritter, die nach der neuen Google (NASDAQ: GOOG - Nachrichten) suchen. Stopp nicht vergessen!

    On2 Technologies Announces New Flix(R) Engine with TrueCore(TM) Technology for Multi-Core Processors
    MONDAY, JULY 16, 2007 8:30 AM
    - PR Newswire


    TARRYTOWN, N.Y., July 16, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc., (ONT) , a leader in video compression software and solutions, announced today that it has released a new version of its flagship Flix Engine video encoding software designed for servers with multi-core processors. Through On2's new TrueCore technology, Flix Engine can use multiple processor cores to encode video in parallel, resulting in substantially faster video transcoding speed with a single Flix Engine. With TrueCore technology, a 720P high- definition video file can be encoded at 1.4 times faster than real-time on a processor with eight cores.

    The new Flix Engine offers two modes of operation for different video encoding applications. The default mode is targeted at user-generated content (UGC) sites, and other high-volume applications for smaller video files. In this mode, Flix Engine simultaneously encodes multiple videos by automatically spawning a new encoder process on each available core or processor. An eight- core processor can therefore encode eight video files simultaneously.

    For high-resolution content, Flix Engine uses the TrueCore technology to encode different sections of a video file simultaneously across multiple processor cores. As a result, large files, such as high-definition video (HD), are encoded significantly faster, and can be encoded faster than real time with suitable number of cores utilized.

    "Faster encoding has been a high customer priority, especially as VP6- based Flash based video programming is used at higher, even broadcast quality resolutions," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2. "With the increasing availability of multi-core processors in affordable off-the-shelf hardware, our TrueCore technology gives users the ability to fully leverage the benefits of such processors. Our flagship product, the Flix Engine, is the perfect platform to introduce truly affordable and fast encoding with this breakthrough technology."

    In either mode, Flix Engine with TrueCore provides marked improvements with each additional processor core. For instance, a four-core instance can encode a video file approximately three times faster than a single-core implementation of Flix Engine, and an eight-core instance can encode a video file approximately five times faster.

    "We are pleased to see On2 further innovate their line of video encoding software," said Chris Hock, group product manager, Flash Media Server, for Dynamic Media at Adobe. "Flash technologies have set the benchmark for web video, and faster encoding with On2's TrueCore technology further pushes the boundaries for how Flash based video can be applied to both high volume and high resolution video applications."

    Flix Engine with TrueCore is offered at the same licensing terms as the current Flix Engine for up to four-core utilization. Thereafter, each additional four cores accrue additional Flix Engine licensing fees. Existing Flix Engine licensees who have current support contracts can upgrade to Flix Engine with four-core TrueCore technology at no additional cost by contacting On2 at sales@on2.com, or through their sales representatives.

    Flix Engine with TrueCore is available immediately in both Linux and Windows versions.

    ruhig blut! je niedriger derzeit der aktienkurs von ONT, desto günstiger wird die übernahme von HANTRO.


    Under the terms of the agreement, On2 will acquire Hantro in a share exchange directly with the holders of all of Hantro's equity securities for a combination of cash and shares of On2's common stock, par value $.01 per share. Immediately after the closing, the Hantro stockholders would own approximately 12% of the combined company on a pro forma basis, based on On2's closing share price of $3.38 on May 18, 2007, and Hantro would become a wholly-owned subsidiary of On2.

    The cash component of the acquisition price is approximately $6,800,000. If the volume-weighted average price for shares of On2 for the 10 trading days prior to closing is between $1.50 and $2.50 per share, the total value of the shares to be issued at the closing will equal $45,000,000 less the cash component. If the 10-day volume-weighted average share price prior to closing is $1.50 or less, the Company will pay the cash component and issue approximately 25,440,000 shares. If the 10-day volume-weighted average share price prior to closing is $2.50 per share or more, the Company will pay the cash component and issue approximately 15,300,000 shares. The number of On2 shares to be issued at closing is subject to adjustment, based on Hantro's stockholders' equity as of the date of the closing. Based on On2's closing share price of $3.38 on May 18, 2007, the total value of the acquisition at closing, before any adjustments, would be approximately $58,400,000. After giving effect to contingent consideration of up to an additional 12.5 million On2 shares based on the level of 2007 revenues from Hantro's business lines, ownership of the combined company by Hantro's shareholders could be a maximum of approximately 19% on a pro forma basis. Hantro's balance sheet as of March 31, 2007 includes approximately $4,900,000 of debt owed to Finnish financial institutions and governmental agencies. Hantro expects to generate revenues of between Euro6,000,000 and Euro9,000,000 (approximately $8,100,000 and $12,200,000) on an annualized basis for 2007, determined according to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. On2 is currently unable to provide GAAP estimates on future earnings. On2 nevertheless anticipates that the transaction will produce break-even to slightly accretive results in 2008 on a non-GAAP basis.

    HIGH DEFINITION INTERNET STREAMING VIDEO
    Although downloading of full-quality high definition video files has been technically possible for some
    time, various issues, including rights management, codec availability, and the length of time needed
    to download large files, have discouraged broadcasters from distributing full-length programs over
    the Internet using this technology. For nearly a decade, various streaming technologies have been
    used for Internet video delivery but quality has usually compared poorly to conventional broadcast
    distribution. In recent years, improvements in coding and streaming technologies, coupled with
    broadband data connections to the home, have resulted in better quality for Internet video. Broadcast
    networks and some local stations have taken advantage of this and many full-length shows, as well
    as short-form material, are now available on line. The following Web sites provide video streaming for
    programs from the major commercial networks, based on advertiser-supported business models:
    ABC.com http://abc.go.com/, CBS Innertube http://www.cbs.com/innertube/, Fox On Demand
    http://www.myspace.com/fox, NBC Video http://www.nbc.com/video/rewind/.
    Until recently, such streaming services have not supported high definition video and quality has still
    been very variable. In some cases, programs can be viewed only in a small on-screen window.
    On July 24, ABC became the first network to launch Internet streaming of full-length programming in
    high definition,
    with a player providing full-screen 16:9 images at significantly higher quality than
    previously available. The service was launched in beta form, with episodes of Desperate Housewives,
    Grey’s Anatomy, Lost, and Ugly Betty, with more programs to follow in the new season later in the
    year. The ABC HD service is available free of charge to consumers at:
    http://dynamic.abc.go.com/streaming/landing.

    Video for the HD streaming service is coded at the regular ABC 720p HD resolution of 1280 x 720, 60
    frames per second, and is believed to use a bit rate in the 2 Mbps range. A bitrate meter is provided
    below the picture and shows 850 kbps at the time the image above was captured; the rate varied
    widely throughout the program, with a maximum indicated of about 2 Mbps. As monitored at the NAB
    offices, the quality was remarkably good although various artifacts were apparent at random
    intervals, including visible reductions in image resolution. While not equal to the best quality available
    from over-the-air distribution, this new streaming format being used by ABC is an indication of a
    major improvement in the video experience that can now be delivered over the Internet.
    The HD Media Player used by ABC is part of the Move Media System from Move Networks, Inc., using
    the TrueMotion VP7 software codec developed by On2 Technologies.
    HD program selection uses an
    Adobe Flash user-interface and the player reverts to Flash for commercial breaks in HD programming.
    ABC currently uses Adobe Flash Player 9 for its SD video streaming, using the On2 VP6 codec.

    On2 Technologies Announces Support for Akamai's Video Distribution Platform for Adobe(R) Flash(R) Video

    Wednesday August 22, 8:45 am ET

    Flix(R) Publisher browser-based encoding and publishing solution can be integrated with Akamai's globally-distributed delivery and acceleration platform for streamlining websites' video publishing and delivery workflow


    TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Aug. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc. (Amex: ONT - News), a leader in video compression software and solutions, today announced that its On2 Flix Publisher can now be easily integrated with Akamai Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: AKAM - News), the leading global service provider for accelerating content and applications online. This integration capability enables joint customers to easily encode and publish Adobe Flash video to their web destinations.
    ADVERTISEMENT


    On2 Flix Publisher is a browser-based encoding and publishing solution designed to convert nearly any digital video content into Flash video, simply by dragging and dropping the media onto a special webpage object. Publisher has controls for editing and previewing the video, uploading to a remote data store, and streaming to a Flash Media Server. It delivers substantial savings in server resources and bandwidth because it encodes on the user's desktop, and only well-compressed Flash video traverses the network. Support for the Akamai platform allows for an increase in User Generated Content system scalability while at the same time it decreases computing power needs and alleviates queueing.

    "Flix Publisher is a trailblazing product that allows anyone to become a video publisher," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2. "By integrating Flix Publisher with the technologies brought to the table by Akamai, we have taken the simplicity paradigm one step further. Now, in addition to easily deployed Flash video creation that 'just works,' Publisher customers can use Akamai's rock-solid network and account management tools as a pre-built backend, greatly simplifying site deployment. Anyone can easily and very affordably set up a user generated content site, social networking site, or live video website."

    "Web video publishers are recognizing that On2 VP6(TM) Flash video is a leader in quality and flexibility when distributing their video to millions of users around the world," said Bill Wheaton, Vice President of Digital Media at Akamai. "Akamai's globally distributed platform provides the high-availability infrastructure that video distribution demands. Making On2's Flix Publisher available to our customers gives them a powerful tool for joining the social media revolution, and levels the playing field for large and small publishers alike to take advantage of the tremendous demand for Flash video."

    The combined use of Flix Publisher and Akamai's technology offers a standard integration with flexible configuration options. Publisher integrates cleanly with Akamai's services.

    Flix Publisher, with support for the Akamai platform is already commercially available, as a result of successful trials over the last few months. Contact On2 at sales@on2.com for complete details.

    interview von 3/2007:

    quelle: http://www.videomaker.com/blog/date/2007/03

    Behind the online video encoding curtain of sites such as Brightcove or IFILM, lies a technology that makes online video sharing a reality. It’s On2 Technologies video compression tools that make it all possible. Today, in a brief chat with On2’s Bill Joll, CEO, we learned about the company’s success and the future of video compression technologies.

    On the tail of the company’s fourth quarter revenue report, Joll was happy to announce revenue was up 200% compared to the previous year. We have to assume this large success is due in part because of you. “You” as in the new age of video producers who are using online video service providers to host and share your content, many of which that are licensing On2’s VP6 and VP7 codec. Every day, there are more of you and there are more online video communities who need to be able to compress your video. That’s where On2 Technologies has excelled this past year, including their business model that is following Adobe Macromedia Flash wherever they go.

    In a competitive field of technologies, Joll tells us that the benefit of their VP6 and VP7 codec is that it’s quality at lower bit rates (the type you’d find on video sharing sites) is significantly better than the typical H.264, MPEG4, and Windows Media codecs. Furthermore, their clients also save quite a bit in costs, as On2 Technologies license fees are limited to encoding process. This means that sites like Brightcove can find a business model that works not only for them, but the independent producers who want to use their service. As we see it, this technology is helping forge the way for IPTV solutions.

    On the horizon for On2 Technologies is more development in the HD market. As HDTV sales increase, the need to deliver HD video through high-speed Internet connections will also increase. Pushing HD video to consumers at home will take significant leadership in compression technology. That’s something we expect Joll and On2 Technologies to deliver. The big question is when.

    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

    Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
    As previously reported on the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 22, 2007, as amended in the Current Report on Form 8-K/A filed July 16, 2007, on May 21, 2007, On2 Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") entered into a share exchange agreement (the "Share Exchange Agreement") with Nexit Ventures Oy, as the authorized representative of the holders of all outstanding equity securities (including outstanding share options) of Hantro Products Oy, a corporation organized under the laws of Finland ("Hantro"). The Company is filing this amendment to its Current Report on Form 8-K for purposes of disclosing certain Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Consolidated Financial Statements and Consolidated Financial Statements of Hantro Products Oy, as set forth in Item 9.01 below.

    Upon completion of the share exchange, Hantro and its subsidiary will become wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company. The Company anticipates that the closing of the share exchange will be in September 2007, and it is subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval by the Company's stockholders, the completion of one or more equity offerings by the Company to raise a minimum of $20,000,000 of additional equity capital and the election of one person nominated by a principal Hantro securityholder to the Company's board of directors.

    The Company has filed with the SEC a preliminary proxy statement and accompanying proxy card to be used to solicit votes for the proposed share exchange at the 2007 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of the Company, which is tentatively scheduled for September 24, 2007. The Company urges its stockholders to read the proxy statement in its entirety, including the Share Exchange Agreement. The proxy statement is available at no charge at the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov.

    Copies of the definitive proxy statement and a notice of the 2007 Annual Meeting will be distributed to stockholders of record on July 30, 2007 in connection with the 2007 Annual Meeting.

    aus einem US-brokerboard... hier wird deutlich, wie sich der H.264 standard zu den VP8 und 9 abhebt und welches potenzial vor der tür steht. wir brauchen nur geduld!

    +++++++++++++++++++

    If you want just VP6/7/8 you go to On2, that is true.
    If you want HD quality H.264, VP6/7/8 you go to On2
    Not wanting both H.264 and VP6/7/8 is not entirely true and honestly I don't know who would as this video market develops. Our tool and engine revenues are going to skyrocket and our royalty revenues will follow them.

    The broadcast community & content developers will want to make their assets available in ALL of the formats accessible on any device any time and anywhere. The only place you can go for this will be On2 who not only provides exceptional quality with proprietary technology, they now support the H.264 and soon to be VC-1. That is a GREAT position to be in.

    When we did the deal with Adobe, this was at a minimum the expected outcome and what was expected to become solid ground to build the future of the comany off of. Flash Player 8&9 is the undeniable front runner when it comes to quality and ubiquity on the web...thanks to On2 VP6 and this will only get better as Adobe licenses VP7 or more likely VP8. You have to remember that H.264 is not for devices, VP7 produces comparable quality at lower bit rates and we have yet to see the advancements that have been made with VP8 but we know that it is 1080p. Consider how the internet is going to play into home entertainment and how and where it is delivered. If you look forward, it only makes sense to have H.264 and VP6/7/8 for On2 as well as Adobe and the likes of Vividas, Move, etc...

    On the device side of the equation, On2/Hantro will be the only place you can go for all of the soultions in low power bandwidth constrained environements like devices and the only place you can go for quality over copper delivery systems. That is a GREAT position to be in.

    Big money is going to be made here, that is why our institutional number keep climbing and I keep buying. When the Hantro deal closes, that number will be over 35%, maybe even close to 50%. The games that are being played here now are for that reason.

    ON2s Bill JOll sagte in einem interview: "On2 will be positioned as a single source for all the leading advanced video compression schemes."

    "One factor that generally goes unrecognized in the market is that the H.264 standard specifies playback or decoding specifications only," said Paul Wilkins, co-CTO and SVP of research and development at On2. "By applying our years of encoding expertise to standards based encoding we aim to stand out in our implementations of these technologies."

    "While On2?s TrueMotion codecs continue to be the torch-bearer in the industry for advances in video compression, our codec expertise applied to H.264 and other standards-based technologies bodes well for customers who want the best implementation of these standards," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2 Technologies. "We are listening to our customers, and at the same time preserving the investment they have made in our products. In addition, by supporting standards based formats we are expanding the opportunities for On2 and addressing a broader market with our video solutions."

    On2 will be positioned as a single source for all the leading advanced video compression schemes.

    http://www.on2.com/completepr/?id=411


    "Since Flash Player 8, the On2 VP6 codec has helped our customers deliver high quality, on-demand and live video through the Flash Player," said Kevin Towes, technical product manager for Flash Media Server at Adobe. "On2?s continuing support for H.264 will help our customers leverage a standardized video codec to deliver rich video experiences with Flash Player compatible video, Flex and Adobe AIR."

    http://www.on2.com/completepr/?id=414


    Mark Randall, chief strategist in the Dynamic Media organization at Adobe Systems, was obviously excited about the pre-announcement conference call to announce the inclusion of H.264 playback in a new version of the Flash player, code-named "Moviestar."

    "I'm excited about this announcement," said Randall. "I've spent my career trying to continuously put better quality pixels on computer screens and this announcement could have more impact than all my previous work combined."

    Adobe's Flash 8 Video, powered by the On2 VP6 codec, is a very good codec, and Adobe has a license option on On2's newer codec, VP7, which is arguably better than H.264 in that it provides equal quality with lower processing requirements

    On2 and CTTnet Announce Milestones in VP7 Mobile Development for Chinese Markets and Demonstration of VP7-Enabled Cellphones at CES


    CTTnet Embraces On2's VP7 Video Compression Technology for Mobile Phone,
    Mobile Device Applications

    NEW YORK, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc.
    (Amex: ONT), and China Transport Telecommunications Broadband Network Service
    Co., Ltd. (CTTnet) announced that they have made significant progress in the
    development and deployment throughout China of a broad range of mobile
    streaming applications based on On2's TrueMotion VP7 Technology. CTTnet has
    begun the process of having the VP7 mobile technology approved for use by
    Chinese mobile carriers, and initial response from the carriers has been
    positive. On2 will be demonstrating VP7 operating on a number of mobile
    platforms at CES.
    The parties also stated that the previously-announced agreement between
    On2 and Beijing Fastrend Technology Ltd. has been revised, with CTTnet
    replacing Fastrend as a party to the agreement. On2 and CTTnet stated that
    they have achieved significant technical milestones in integrating VP7 on the
    Symbian(TM) and Smartphone mobile operating systems and PDA platforms and
    currently have VP7 operating on four Symbian, and more than ten Smartphone
    models and several PDA models. On2 will have these Symbian and Smartphone
    handsets and PDAs available for demonstration at CES. The VP7 Symbian player
    should be available for commercial release during the first quarter of 2006.
    On2 and CTTnet have begun the work necessary to commence a VP7 implementation
    on the Brew mobile within the first quarter of 2006 and have continued
    planning for future implementations on additional mobile operating systems.
    The parties will also actively market the integrated VP7 mobile video
    applications worldwide. In support of this initial focus on the burgeoning
    Chinese mobile phone market, On2 has granted CTTnet certain exclusive
    marketing rights relating to VP7 for mobile applications.
    "We are excited by the opportunities created by the CTTnet/On2
    partnership. We expect that the implementation of VP7 in our mobile television
    technology will give our customers and us an unprecedented quality mobile
    streaming application experience while at the same time further enhancing our
    existing market leadership position," said Mr. Yang Chenggong, CTTnet's
    chairman, president and chief executive officer.
    "On2 and CTTnet are among the true innovators driving new mobile trends
    throughout Asia, and ultimately the world. By effectively setting new
    directions in mobile communications, they should become the bellwether for the
    next big trend in mobile application development -- mobile video," said
    Douglas A. McIntyre, chairman, president and chief executive officer of On2
    Technologies. "A critical component to enabling mobile video trends is image
    quality. The VP7 codec is optimized for pushing very high quality video
    content through mobile networks and our joint goal is that in 2006, millions
    of consumers across China will experience VP7 quality first-hand on their
    mobile devices," Mr. McIntyre added.
    This week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas On2 will be
    demonstrating various VP7-powered video smartphones and other mobile devices
    that have been developed through the initial On2/CTTnet collaboration. These
    demonstrations will take place in the On2 Technology Demo Suite at the MGM
    Grand and are by appointment only. Interested parties may schedule demos by
    contacting Daniel Scherer of On2 Technologies at 646-292-3533.

    On2 Tech: Der neue US-Web 2.0-Star!?
    Armin Brack - 06.06.2007

    Mit neuer Videokompressions-Technologie will On2 das Internet revolutionieren

    On2 Technologies ist aktuell der Hot Stock überhaupt in den USA. Die Aktie hat sich in den letzten 52 Wochen versiebenfacht. Das Unternehmen entwickelt eine Video-
    Kompressions-Technologie mit der Videos in geschlossene Netzwerke übermittelt werden können, beispielsweise auf Set-Top-Boxen, PCs und Handys. Die Qualität der übermittelten Bilder soll dabei auch bei beschränkter Bandbreite exzellent sein.

    Ein Deal sorgt für Furore

    Mit der Übernahme der finnischen Hantro Products soll nun die Verwendung der
    Software auf Halbleiter-Chips für mobile Geräte beschleunigt werden. Zu den
    Kunden von Hantro zählen unter anderem Nokia und Sanyo.

    Mit einer Börsenbewertung von 282 Millionen Euro bei einem erwarteten Umsatz in 2007 von umgerechnet unter zehn Millionen Euro scheint die Aktie auf den ersten Blick astronomisch teuer. Doch die jüngst angekündigte Kapitalerhöhung im Umfang von über 60 Millionen Euro zeigt das Interesse institutioneller Investoren. Bereits heuer soll die Verlustzone verlassen werden.

    Unser Fazit:

    Wenn sich die Technologie durchsetzt winkt ein Milliarden-Markt. Die perfekte Aktie für Glücksritter, die nach der neuen Google suchen. Stopp nicht vergessen!

    On2 Technologies' Annual Stockholders' Meeting Adjourned Until October 10, 2007
    Monday September 24, 1:54 pm ET


    TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc., (Amex: ONT - News), announced today that it adjourned its Annual Stockholders' Meeting immediately after it was convened in order to allow additional time for its stockholders to consider the proposals submitted to them for a vote.
    The Annual Stockholders' Meeting will be reconvened on October 10, 2007, at 9:00 a.m. at the offices of McGuireWoods LLP, 1345 Avenue of the Americas, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10105. The items of business to be considered at the reconvened Annual Stockholder Meeting are described in the proxy statement dated August 30, 2007. The record date for the Annual Stockholders' Meeting remains July 30, 2007.

    The meeting was called for the purpose of considering the following proposals:


    (1) to amend the Company's bylaws to increase the number of members of
    its Board of Directors (Proposal #1);

    (2) to elect a Board of Directors of the Company (Proposal #2);

    (3) to approve an amendment to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation
    to increase the number of authorized shares of the Company's common
    stock (Proposal #3);

    (4) to approve the issuance of shares of the Company's common stock to be
    exchanged for all of the issued and outstanding equity securities of
    Hantro Products Oy, so that Hantro will become a wholly-owned
    subsidiary of the Company (Proposal #4);

    (5) to authorize the Board of Directors to amend the Company's
    Certificate of Incorporation to effect a reverse stock split of its
    outstanding common stock at a ratio of one-for-five (Proposal #5);

    (6) to approve an amendment to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation
    to decrease the number of authorized shares of the Company's common
    stock to 55,000,000 conditioned on the approval and implementation of

    As of immediately prior to the scheduled Annual Stockholders Meeting, based on the percentage of those stockholders who submitted proxies, all proposals had received a majority of affirmative votes. The affirmative votes received on each proposal are sufficient to approve all proposals except Proposal #3, which requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the total shares outstanding as of the record date. Although a majority of the shares voted so far on Proposal #3 have been cast in favor of the proposal, the Company has not yet received sufficient votes on that proposal for its approval. Specifically, based on the preliminary tally of the votes received, the votes received on the following proposals were as follows:

    On2 Technologies and RipCode Deliver Advanced 2-Pass Appliance-based Encoding
    Tuesday October 30, 8:00 am ET
    RipCode's new high-capacity video transcoding appliance supports multi-platform content creation and cross-platform services for On2 TrueMotion(TM) VP6(TM).


    TARRYTOWN, N.Y. and DALLAS, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies Inc. (Amex: ONT - News), a leader in video compression software and solutions, and RipCode, Inc. announced today that RipCode has integrated the On2 VP6 codec, which is used in Adobe® Flash® Player 8 and 9, for the industry's first hardware accelerated 2-pass encoding appliance for VP6 recently launched by RipCode.
    ADVERTISEMENT


    On2 VP6 based Flash video is among the most widely used formats for Internet video. As a result of this agreement, On2 VP6 based services will be able to deliver dynamic transcoding for video on demand, enabling broadcasters, syndicators, or user generated video sites to eliminate storage of multiple file formats and deliver files from their entire video library for any application.

    "In keeping with our vision to provide 'any video, anywhere', our partnership with RipCode is a definitive step towards furthering this strategy," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2. "RipCode's on-demand transcoding appliance is particularly important as VP6 based Flash video is rapidly extending its dominant position in web video to support mobile and device based playback. RipCode's hardware accelerated 2-pass encoding for VP6 is a compact and robust transcoding solution, which allows media companies and service providers even more flexibility in delivering VP6 for Flash video content to any size screen."

    The advanced 2-pass, single rack unit RipCode appliance replaces between 10-20 general purpose servers. In addition to delivering significantly higher encoding capacity than legacy software solutions, RipCode's consolidated, high concurrency, On Demand Transcoding(SM) allows simultaneous creation of content for delivery across multiple service platforms such as mobile, broadcast and Internet, and different device platforms such as PCs, mobile phones, and portable devices such as iPod®.

    "On2 VP6 for Flash video is a widely accepted format within our customer base," said Brendon Mill, CEO of RipCode. "Therefore, we've developed our transcoding appliance to provide consolidated, high concurrency 2-pass processing to rapidly and efficiently create VP6 content, while also reducing our customers' hardware, storage and energy use."

    RipCode and On2 are also collaborating on future product deliverables with additional announcements planned for 2008. Along with the licensing of VP6 in October of 2006, RipCode also licensed On2's advanced TrueMotion VP7(TM) technology. On2's VP7 technology is designed to encode quicker, decode in fewer cycles, and with less decoding complexity than other compression schemes, making the VP7 codec the ideal choice for high volume applications and low cost mass-market consumer devices.

    Rocket Stocks For The Week Of December 3rd - December 7th

    Another stock I like this week is On2 Technologies (ONT). This small technology company is down almost 80% for the year hurt by increased expenses and poor management. Recently however, they just signed a collaboration agreement with Texas Instruments. This is a major agreement for ONT as it shows that management is finally making some progress forward. My guess is that the street has yet to see this agreement which could send shares much higher.

    ARM and On2 Technologies Demonstrate the First High-Performance Video CODECs Optimized With ARM NEON Technology
    MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2008 3:00 AM
    - PR Newswire




    CAMBRIDGE, England and TARRYTOWN, New York, February 11, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- On2, a leader in video codec technologies (http://www.on2.com) and ARM (UK:ARM) (ARMHY) , today announced at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, that On2 has used ARM(R) NEON(TM) technology to optimize the performance of several of its popular video software codecs. By employing the SIMD media processing extensions to the ARM Cortex(TM)-A series of processors, On2 has been able to significantly reduce the clock cycles needed and increase the playback performance of the most popular video formats used in mobile devices. Compared to existing software decoders on today's leading mobile handsets, new products based on the NEON technology-optimized On2 codecs will benefit from longer battery life along with support for higher resolutions and frame rates, bringing accessibility to a broader range of high-quality video content through the web.

    By using the ARM RealView(R) Development Suite 3.1 Professional tools with cycle-accurate models, On2 was able to optimize its codecs for NEON technology before development boards were available. Mobile device and handset OEMs are now equipped with the technology to enable a truly compelling mobile Internet video experience on devices using the ARM Cortex-A series of processors.

    The use of simulation models also enables On2, a member of the ARM Connected Community, to deliver time-to-market benefits for OEMs and chip vendors by providing them with NEON technology-optimized software codecs while chip solutions with NEON technology are still in the design phase.

    "On2 is committed to providing the most optimal video solutions possible. We identified NEON as widely adopted technology that is powering multimedia capabilities on the next generation of high-performance mobile handsets," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2. "Building on our extensive knowledge of video codecs, and using cycle-accurate models of the ARM Cortex-A8 processor and the vectorizing compiler from ARM, On2 will extend its market leadership in mobile video by providing multiple software codecs across the multiple silicon platforms that have included NEON technology."

    "The use of codecs that have been optimized for the NEON extensions will enable the consumer to have an improved battery life and better visual quality," said Rob Coombs, global director for mobile solutions marketing at ARM. "On2's range of codecs that can now take advantage of NEON technology includes the popular VP6 codec used in Flash(R) Video on websites such as Facebook."

    The extensive use of ARM models also significantly reduced On2's required development time. In a few months, the company was able to raise the benchmark for several of its software video codecs. Using NEON technology-optimized code, the Hantro 6100 H.264, Hantro 8100 Sorenson Spark and On2's proprietary TrueMotion VP6 are able to decode video in less than half the clock cycles when compared to previous-generation implementations.

    About NEON Technology

    NEON technology is a set of 128-bit SIMD (single instruction, multiple data) media processing extensions that provides standardized acceleration for next-generation media and signal processing applications. It features a comprehensive instruction set, separate register file and independent execution hardware. NEON technology supports 8-, 16-, 32- and 64-bit integer, and single precision floating-point, SIMD operations for handling audio/video processing as well as graphics and gaming processing. The RealView Development Suite Professional contains the state-of-the-art vectorizing NEON compiler that generates NEON instructions from standard C or C++. This can increase the performance of applications by 400 percent..

    The RealView Development Suite 3.1 Professional also contains instruction-accurate Real Time System Models of the Cortex-A8 processor and its NEON extensions, which enable application developers to create and test applications, running in real time, before silicon vendors have provided the hardware. This means that OEMs can introduce mobile devices to the market complete with a full suite of rich applications.

    Infineon Technologies Chooses On2 for Video Codecs
    MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2008 8:00 AM
    - PR Newswire



    TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Feb 11, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- On2 Technologies, Inc. (ONT) , a leader in video compression technologies, announced today that Infineon Technologies AG (FSE/ NYSE: IFX) has signed a multiple use license agreement for integrating the On2's latest Hantro video accelerators. Configurable to support popular standard and proprietary video formats in resolutions from QCIF up to 720p High Definition, the encoder and the decoder RTL designs will be integrated to several Infineon baseband chipsets targeted for high volume mobile handsets.

    Under the terms of the agreement On2 will provide Infineon with several configurations of the codec solution; the format and resolution support are specified during the system integration phase of the chip projects thus providing Infineon with maximum flexibility to ensure they achieve an optimum combination of silicon area utilization and functionality for their target markets.

    "Infineon have shipped more than a billion wireless chipsets and is expected to gain significant market share in 2G and 3G markets," says Bill Joll, President and CEO of On2. "This kind of success is testament to their consistent ability to competitively deliver leading edge products of the highest quality. We are extremely proud to be chosen as the video technology provider for their next generation chipsets."

    By using On2(TM) RTL designs, Infineon is able to offload the complex calculations needed for video compression and decompression from the chip's processor core. This makes full motion video record and playback possible, without having high CPU load for video processing. In addition, the solution is extremely power efficient which means that consumers with handsets built on the Infineon chipset can enjoy longer video capture and playback time on a single charge.

    "High quality video capability is virtually a pre-requisite for all feature-phone handsets, and integrating support into the baseband chipset is the best way to marry the performance consumers expect with the price they are willing to pay," said Clemens Jargon, Infineon's Vice President and General Manager of the Feature Phone Business Unit. "With the On2's video accelerators, we are able to provide device manufacturers with highly competitive leading edge solutions for entry level through to high-end multimedia handset designs."

    Infineon is using the On2 video accelerators in the 3G and higher end 2.5G variants of their 65nm baseband family. First products of this family are sampling now. Infineon has been shipping its communication ICs for more than 15 years to all major companies in the mobile phone segment, including Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and LG.

    On2 Extends Its Relationship with Skype in New Strategic Agreement
    Monday November 17, 8:00 am ET

    CLIFTON PARK, N.Y., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On2 Technologies (Amex: ONT - News), a leader in video compression solutions, today announced that it has signed a new agreement with Skype(TM), the world's leading online communications company, to extend Skype's relationship licensing On2's video codec technology.

    Millions of people every day use Skype software to communicate with others through free voice and video calls. On2's technology provides encoding, scaling, pre-processing and post-processing of video on Skype. On2 supported the launch of video on Skype in 2005 with the integration of the On2® VP7(TM) codec with Skype 2.0 for Windows. Since that time, Skype launched High Quality Video in October 2007, calling on the On2 codec, allowing users with as little as 0.5mbps available bandwidth to enjoy full screen video calls at VGA resolution. The On2 codec is also used in the recently announced Asus(TM) AiGuru SV1 Skype Certified Videophone. The new agreement is intended to pave the way for the On2 codec to migrate along with the Skype service to a diverse array of new devices such as the AiGuru SV1 Videophone.

    "On2 and Skype hold the same vision for video communications and through our close cooperation we have overcome the barriers keeping video calling out of reach for many," said Matt Frost, Interim CEO and Chief Operating Officer of On2 Technologies. "In the future, you can expect to see even better video quality requiring even less bandwidth, and this will help to make video calling even more commonplace."

    The superior compression performance of the On2 codec makes High Quality Skype video calls possible even over data rate connections as low as 300kbps. Among the numerous quality-enhancing innovations in On2 video codecs is Golden Frames, which enables a sharp background image to be maintained with minimal data when the subject in the foreground is continually moving. This feature is also extremely beneficial for packet-loss recovery. On2 video codecs also require far less CPU power for full duplex live video than other compression formats, enabling Skype users with older and less powerful PC systems to enjoy high quality video calls, and allowing stand-alone devices like the AiGuru SV1 videophone to be produced cost effectively, using less expensive processor technology.

    "Bringing a great video calling experience to the average consumer is one of Skype's key priorities, and we see On2 as a key partner in helping us deliver this," said Manrique Brenes, Skype's Director of Business Development and Product Management for Consumer Electronics. "Using On2's codecs along with extensive software development and optimization work by engineering teams at Skype, we are able to help consumers overcome bandwidth constraints and deliver best-in-class free video calling for consumers."
