ITERATED FRACTALS, NOW WIDELY AVAILABLE, CHALLENGE MPEG2

By CBR Staff Writer

Iterated Systems Inc, the Atlanta, Georgia-based developer of fractal video and still image technology for digital media applications, says it will license its Clearly technology and Fractal Transform algorithms to third parties for embedded digitial video and multimedia applications. Iterated claims five patents for Fractal technology and others pending. It believes it has over 20 pieces of core technology suitable for personal computer, multimedia and consumer information appliance applications. The idea is to deliver high quality video images at faster than real-time data rates, says the company. Iterated’s Fractal compression techniques can create video sizes much smaller than the usual MPEG2 techniques at comparable, it says. Iterated is hoping that semiconductor companies and chip designers will be interested, and points to its existing relationship with Emc3 International Holding BV, the Amsterdam- based developer of the EDD, Electronic Digital Delivery system- on-a-chip. Emc3 is marketing EDD to video cassette recorder manufacturers and other consumer entertainment appliances, to enable appliances to download VHS and SVHS digital entertainment at smaller data rates than MPEG2. Iterated says it has a number of other projects, currently the subject of active negotiation.
