Protux is being developed to be a complete Digital Media Production tool, or Digital Media Workstation. The focus is on GNU/Linux users, but it runs in any workstation with a Java >=1.5 VM installed, and even over the Web through a standard browser that supports Java. It aims to offer an integrated environment for audio, video, and MIDI production throught a innovative interface where the productivity is focused.
The Java Media Framework (JMF) is an API for incorporating audio, video, and other time-based media into Java applications and applets. It is an optional package that extends the multimedia capabilities on the Java2 platform. The Blackdown JMF is a Performace Pack which includes native code in order to provide faster processing and tighter integration with Linux than the all-Java version.
jMax is a visual programming environment for building interactive real-time musical and multimedia applications by allowing the user to interactively design dataflow circuits. The basic data types that can go through are integers, symbols, lists, etc. It is an event-driven system and has been used for MIDI processing. A second part of the system (DSP) allows a continuous signal to flow through a circuit, which is most useful for PCM sound (ie. microphone, sound files, etc.). The system is extensible by using shared libraries, you may add data processor types, data types, GUI elements, device types, and more. Data processors may also be designed as circuits and reused.
Oreka is an enterprise telephony recording and retrieval system with a Web-based user interface. It supports recording voice from VoIP SIP, Cisco Skinny (aka SCCP), raw RTP, and audio sound devices, and runs on multiple operating systems and database systems. It can record audio from most PBX and telephony systems, such as BroadWorks, Metaswitch, Asterisk, FreeSwitch, OpenSIPS, Avaya, Nortel, Mitel, Siemens, Cisco Call Manager, Cosmocom, NEC, etc. It is being used in call centers and contact centers for quality monitoring (QM) purposes.
