Server 3, offers "Skip Protection," a collection of Apple-invented
technologies that ensures a higher quality experience for watching and
listening to Internet streams. "Skip Protection" protects against media

transmissions.

to deliver the latest in Internet content to millions of surfers around the
world," said Philip Schiller, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Product

* easy developer support for delivering new user interfaces, or "skins"*;
* an improved digital video codec for improved iMovie playback performance;and

applications such as Apple's Final Cut Pro.

Leading web developers whose technologies take advantage of the new
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.
