Privately held personal video computing company, LA Vision, is adopting Milpitas, California-based C-Cube Microsystems Inc’s VideoRISC encoder for use in its Dazzle video computing adapter. The joining together of the two technologies will enable users to actually do things with the media images they capture within their applications, instead of simply storing them, say the two. The Dazzle adapter snaps on to a computer’s external parallel port so that users can capture and record high-quality video or still images from an analog video source, such as video recorder, digital camera, or studio-based video and audio equipment. Images can then be placed into Windows 95-compatible business and entertainment applications. The images can be installed within the applications without having to install an add-in card. By incorporating C-Cube’s VideoRISC encoder, the Dazzle product should be able to encode video and audio material into MPEG file format in real time. Media recorded using Dazzle can be played back on any personal computer equipped with Microsoft Corp’s DirectShow software or Apple Computer Inc’s Quicktime 2.0.
