Update on the AQCVid interface for QuickCam
For immediate press release:
Omnilink Corporation is pleased
and proud to announce their first foray into Amiga(tm) hardware
development with the AQCVid(tm). A unique hardware and software
solution which allows Amiga users to enjoy the benefits of the
popular PC QuickCam(tm).
For those of you who are not familiar with the hardware specifications
of the QuickCam, here are a few:
A more recent QuickCam model has been introduced, which has 640x480
as one of its resolutions, with 24bit colour. AQCVid support is
tentatively planned for this model, adding an even greater quality
to an already impressive roster of applications.
AQCVid is only for use with the PC/Windows version of the greyscale
This development will allow all Amiga users a new field of applications
for both amateur and professional use.
Here are some of the possible applications:
The AQCVid is designed to work with all ECS/AGA Amigas, and includes
CyberGraphX support. File formats currently include IFF, ANIM5,
and ANIM7. CDXL (animation w/sound) and JPEG is tentatively planned
for a future release.
Users also have the option of time lapse with exposure control.
Internet users have an overwrite previous file function, useful
for realtime 'net video updates.
An ARexx Commodity is also supplied to allow for control of the
QuickCam by other external applications.
16-bit audio sampling/playback support is also tentatively planned
for 16 bit Amiga audio expansion cards. Also planned is a ImageFX(tm)
module that will allow direct control of the QuickCam by ImageFX.
As new Amiga models come into being, Omnilink is committed to
maintain AQCVid compatibility with these hardware advancements.
We hope this will show the Amiga community and the personal computing
community of the world, Omnilink Corporation's dedication to the
best personal computer on the planet, the AMIGA.
