My birthday

Hi folks,

It is time to see how many people actually check out this blog ;-) .
Well... It is my birthday, let see if I will get any respond here or over e-mail ;-) .

This year the gifts however will be for you. I have added a number of tutorials for VideoLab, AudioLab and SignalLab -, and I am working on more tutorials both for Visual Studio (C#, VB.NET, J#, C++/CLI) and RAD Studio (Delphi and C++ Builder).

The Scope component is also getting a major overhaul. Some down-sampling has been added and the component can now work very fast with more than 1 million samples. More down-sampling will be added and we expect further speed improvements. There are also number of other features added, including rectangular zones for marking and axis interactions. We are also working on adding more axis to the scope, and associating the channels with them.

The libraries are also getting more demos added. With all of this and a lot of fixes and improvements across the libraries, we hope that the next release will be even more fun to use. Our current plan is to have release around the end of January, but it may depend of how the testing will go. As usual we will not release until we are 100% satisfied with the quality.

On the go

Hi folks,
I will be visiting China for the next 25 days, and will be back on July 10. I expect to have reasonable connectivity during that time, and will try to handle any customer requests, as well as will dispatch some issues to people working for me, however some delays may be encountered. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

Version 3.0 is finally available!

We finally released the 3.0 version of all the libraries.
This is by far the biggest release we have ever done. All the libraries have grown, with the VisionLab more than tripling in functionality. There is a new threading model, new improved buffering, new video formats, AudioLab supports multichannel (More than 2 channels) audio, and many more new features.
For first time all the libraries are also available for .NET 2.0 as Betas.
All the libraries also support Delphi 2007.
I hope you will enjoy!
Please stay tuned for more...

An OpenWire overhaul

The OpenWire core has gone in a major overhaul in the last 2 weeks. The original code was written years ago and has gone trough incremental changes since then. It finally become apparent that the implementation needs to be improved in order the library to continue to succeed. As result of the overhaul the loading time of large projects has decreased 10 fold :-) The code is also more readable and expandable than it was before. The new version also allow specifying the order in which the Sink pins will receive the data. We are also considering other changes in the coming days. The new version seems very stable, but we will continue stress testing in the next few days before we release a new Beta .
Stay tuned for more updates!
