Or should that be "The revolution
will not be Televised"?
I am excited to announce the first Revolution coding sprint for the
new digital television era! I've just put up a wiki page for those
of you from the Rev community interested in the project:
A small group of us are going into the mountains of Austria to
prototype and specify a Revolution based framework for digital
television production. We will also specify and build a first
prototype of a cross-platform Rev based app which takes RSS feeds
from podcasts and video blogs (vlogs) in order to play full screen
H264 encoded video over the internet (DTV Player).
It will be hopefully the first of several similar sprints taking
place over the next 3 months resulting an open source distribution
for TV workflow based on Revolution and a variety of open source
backend services which we are calling - ccProducer.
The aim is to have this finished together with the DTV Player by the
end of November this year. Should be a good test of Rev's rapid
application development. For anyone interested in this project you
can check out the new Trac and subversion based development wiki:
The video blogging system is to be based on WordPress and can be
found on the same server at:
Warning - it's a new server and not everything is installed properly
yet - we are working on subversion as we speak!
