RealNetworks Releases Industry Standard SMIL Source Code To Helix Community

Bookmark and Share

OSCON, Portland, OR - July 7, 2003 — RealNetworks, Inc., a global leader in network-delivered digital media, today added to the Helix Community, the source code for Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL, pronounced 'smile'), the standard for synchronized display of digital presentations. With the source code of SMIL 2.0 and the Helix DNA Client, Helix community developers can support display of complex presentations in their products. The Helix DNA Client is already in use by major middleware and consumer electronics companies to enable Internet media on consumer electronics devices such as DVD players, set top boxes, PDAs, and mobile devices.

RealNetworks is a contributor to both the SMIL 1.0 and 2.0 specifications and is proud that SMIL 2.0 is both a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Recommendation, the highest level of authorized standard, and a key component of the 3rd Generation Partnership Product (3GPP) specification for mobile multimedia. Supported in industry leading media players, such as RealOne Player, SMIL is typically used for multimedia presentations that integrate streaming audio and video with images, text or any other media type.

"Desktop, mobile and consumer electronics developers need easy access to an industry standard presentation language along with a reference implementation to jump-start development of their audio/video-enabled products," said Nagesh Pabbisetty, vice president, Helix Products and Solutions, RealNetworks, Inc. "We are pleased to contribute our world class implementation of SMIL into the Helix community to assist Helix DNA developers in leveraging the most comprehensive and open multi-format platform for digital media."

"As a visual authoring program for Web designers, Adobe GoLive users rely on industry standards like SMIL to create unique experiences on the Web," said Mark Asher, group product manager for GoLive at Adobe. "RealNetworks' efforts to empower device manufacturers with this advanced technology will ultimately enable GoLive users to develop world class presentations."

"SMIL is the W3C Recommendation for multimedia that allows authors to create XML-based interactive multimedia presentations," said Philipp Hoschka, Deputy Director for the W3C. "We are pleased to see SMIL support expanded into the Helix Community, making the power and flexibility of SMIL available to more developers and more users, and encouraging the even broader adoption of an open multimedia format."

Developers interested in offering content providers the ability to display their content on devices, such as set top boxes, mobile and handheld devices, can implement the Helix DNA Client with SMIL functionality. This simplifies both the product development process and the creation of content - as SMIL enables content owners to create complex media presentations without using scripting languages. RealNetworks' cross-platform SMIL source code (Windows, Mac and Linux available today) is available under a no-cost open source or a royalty-based commercial license to the registered developers of the Helix community at www.helixcommunity.org.
