Server 3, offers "Skip Protection," a collection of Apple-invented
technologies that ensures a higher quality experience for watching and

transmissions.

component download feature include:

* DDD, which takes existing video and encodes it in 3-D for viewing with
3-D glasses;
* Pulse 3D, which provides playback of low-bandwidth 3D interactive animations;
* BeHere, which delivers 360-degree streaming and on-demand video;
* Sealed Media, which allows content developers to "seal" their media and
set up digital rights
* management (DRM) solutions for streaming live or on-demand content;
* On2, which provides high-quality broadband video, encoding and playback; and
* iPIX, which makes virtual reality software that provides dynamic imaging
solutions for creating 360-degree spherical images and movies.
