QuickMotion Offers Native QuickTime Support for OS/2.
QuickMotion installs as an OS/2 multimedia plug-in component and has a suggested retail price of $49.95.
"We heard OS/2 users crying out for native QuickTime support," said Tom Harding, president of Practice Corp., "and it turns out the two technologies are very well-suited to each other." To create QuickMotion, Practice teamed up with Portele Systemsoftware of Germany. Both companies have previously delivered OS/2 multimedia components as shareware. QuickMotion instantly enables existing OS/2 multimedia applications to play QuickTime movies. "It's not a trick, it's OS/2," said Andreas Portele, founder of the latter firm.
QuickMotion's native playback technology greatly improves the quality of sound and video when compared to Windows movie players running under OS/2 -- the only shipping QuickTime solution previously available to OS/2 users.
QuickMotion requires, at a minimum, a PC running OS/2 Warp 3.0 with a 486 processor, 8MB RAM, VGA, and a CD-ROM drive. It will work with any OS/2-compatible sound card, although a sound card is not required.
QuickMotion is suggested retail priced at US $49.95, and is available immediately through OS/2 specialty mail-order house Indelible Blue 800/776-8284. Practice Corp. is located at 1030 E. El Camino Real No. 513, Sunnyvale, CA 94087. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit their web site at http://www.practice.xo.com. -0-
