STARLIGHT MOVES VIDEO NETWORKING SOFTWARE TO HP-UX; HEWLETT-PACKARD TO BUNDLE IT WITH ALL SYSTEMS

By CBR Staff Writer

Starlight Networks Inc, Mountain View, California, has implemented its NetWare-based StarWorks digital video networking software under HP-UX. Hewlett-Packard Co will bundle Starlight’s software with all of its systems. Starlight has also developed a new version of its StarWare NetWare Loadable Module for NetWare networks, StarWare 2.0. StarWare 2.0 costs from $5,000 for 10 users to $35,000 for 100. It ships in December. A media server preconfigured with StarWare on Hewlett’s NetServer supporting 50 concurrent users and storing 20 hours of MPEG-1 video costs $28,000. StarWare 2.0, which supports the same clients and networking middleware as StarWorks, will enable users to start on StarWare on the NetServer and scale up to StarWorks for HP-UX. It will be available in 1996. Hewlett-Packard and Starlight will also develop a Unix-based client that formats video signals for screens. Both companies also plan to integrate Starlight’s video software with other Hewlett-Packard products, and to develop enterprise multimedia application products in performance support, video training and information-on-demand. StarWorks was also recently implemented on IBM Corp’s RS/6000.
