Intel, CBS, and Transpond commissioned Velope to create a high definition full motion demonstration piece for the Yahoo Widget Engine available on various Intel based connected media devices. This demo was presented in the context of Intel’s 3100/4100 “Canmore” device capabilities.
Velope chose Flash as the interactive multimedia authoring tool given that it could support both high quality, high bitrate, high definition video and large uncompressed graphics assets and still retain smooth user interface
transitions and responsiveness.
The challenges of this project were sourcing, compressing, and playing back non-interlaced 1920×1080 video.
Kudos to Intel who shipped us a prototype core I7 box to aid in video compression and allowed us to test our work on the device on which it would be demoed.
