Hi,

And did you remember their price ?

I just remember thinking “It’s expensive”

Another incentive to go to WWDC.

The (money) problem comes when you live overseas...

I believe this intentional. That way people don't start just buying the
DVD's instead of going to WWDC.

This is somewhat off-topic, but noticing the traffic about the video
encoding of WWDC sessions, we thought we'd weigh in. 21st Century Media
provides streaming media services to Apple, and this is our third year
producing the WWDC event. We encode three QuickTime streams for the ADC-TV
web site (for 56, 100 and 300kbps connections) and one for the DVD-ROM set
(at 800kbps).

In previous years, we have used an encoding farm of about 20 G4 machines
running individual copies of Cleaner 5. This year, we are using a central
database-driven encoding system that can be 'driven' from one web-based
interface. We built a mobile system, and had it on-site in San Jose last
week at WWDC.

And now, more on-topic, Apple is also using our cast:stream software to
present some of the sessions, with slides synchronized to streaming video.
The cast:stream system has been developed in REALbasic.

If anyone has any questions pertaining to the WWDC event, feel free to email
me privately.

-Chris

Hey, that's cool! Next year we need to see if we can get a small
"Made With REALbasic" logo to appear in the corner of the screen. ;)

There's a fellow in comp.lang.basic.realbasic claiming that RB isn't
powerful enough for commercial apps. Assuming you didn't give Apple
the use of your software out of the goodness of your heart, perhaps
you can go give him a real-world example.

Cheers,

You've got to be kidding...right? How could anyone claim that at this point?
