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?

Die letzten Quartalszahlen waren noch recht mau. Wenn man nur diese zu Grunde legt ist diese Aktie mit einer Mcap von 100 Mio völlig überteuert. Was ist also an dieser Story dran?

aber mal sehen, vielleicht schmiert das ding ja auch wieder ab. sicher ist heutzutage nichts :cool:

bitte komm mir nicht mit vergangenen zahlen oder fundamentals, die interessieren mich nämlich nur peripher. rein charttechnisch und anhand der aktienumsätze könnte das ding schon gefallen.
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.

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`

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.

Msg: 162385 of 162547

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.

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

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.

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 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.
