Media World powers up to web speed

Solution allows high-quality, real-time video to stream over standard phone line

SYDNEY — Local film and TV production house, Media World, has licensed cutting-edge video compression technology that will eradicate the need for high-speed Internet connections to distribute films for video on demand.

Media World Broadcasting unveiled its plan to enter the broadcast biz and showcased the Adam’s Platform technology, developed by 25-year-old Adam Clark, for an exclusive group of reporters and analysts Wednesday. Adam’s Platform is a streaming solution designed to enable high-quality, full-screen, real-time video streaming of compressed footage stored on remote hardware over a standard telephone line.

The live demonstration, held at Sydney’s Hard Rock Cafe, failed twice before video clips stored on a computer in Melbourne were successfully accessed by the demonstration Mac G4. Picture quality, as shown on a TV screen attached to the Mac, appeared to suffer less than a 3% transmission loss.

Clark demonstrated the platform’s ability to allow users to stop, reverse and restart the footage quickly. No download time required because the platform does not save footage at the receiving end.

Clark developed the compression technology while trying to find a way to stop images being delivered to shopping mall screens being disrupted.

Media World topper John Tatoulis, producer of upcoming Roadshow pic “Let’s Get Skase” and helmer of “The Silver Brumby” starring a young Russell Crowe, is CEO of Media World Broadcasting.

Board chairman is corporate advisor Michael Ramsden and members include former Village Cinemas CEO John Anderson; former ScreenWest chief executive Debra Allanson; former exec veep of worldwide television for MGM Jeff Holmes; lawyer Bill Marshall of Marshalls and Dent lawyers; and Clark.
