We have managed to successfully capture DV from a camcorder onto an Alpha host over IEEE 1394, thus overcoming a number of basic hurdles to the success of this project. Nevertheless, there are a number of tasks that must be accomplished before it is possible to declare victory, including:
  • Development of stable codecs from DV to the compressed format of choice
  • Porting of the Darwin Streaming Server to Alpha Linux
  • Refinement of the camera control facilities
  • Publicizing this work to the OSS community
  • Finding a suitable Quicktime client for Alpha Linux
  • Testing with different camcorders, Alpha hosts, and client types

If you would like to contribute to any of these tasks, please go to our ATSG SourceForge site, set up a userid, and ask to be added as a member, or contact Peter Soderquist by e-mail.
