It took longer than expected, but now you can try the new version 0.3.1, with some bug fix and EXPERIMENTAL support for cryptography. It is only available for Windows 64 bit, at the moment, and other platforms will be added periodically.

People

The main author of the program is Giuseppe Baruffa, assistant professor at the Department of Electronic and Information Engineering of the University of Perugia, and member of the Digital Signal Processing laboratory. It took several time to write the base library, the command line tool, and the graphical interface.

Acknowledgements

First of all, Pietro Clarici, theatre owner of Supercinema and Politeama Clarici, Foligno, without whom I could have not tested and projected the GBytes of data produced by this software.

Then, Wolfgang Woehl, Filmmuseum Munich, who suggested some neat improvements on the interface and on sane default behavior.

Knut Erik Evensen has tested the Mac OS X port and helped to fill the bundle application with all correct shared libraries. He also tested the QuickTime version with Apple Prores clips.

Antonin Descampe, Université catholique de Louvain, has reported a bug in Mac OS X interface.

Bill Elswik and Michael Karagosian for providing access to MPEG Interoperability Initiative documents.

Kommer Kleijn has fixed some errors and misconceptions written into this manual.

David Ballard tested the program on an extremely multithreaded machine, with 12 cores (24 threads).

And a special thank goes to the boss and the people of the DSP Laboratory: Fabrizio, Paolo, and Barbara.
