camE is a Webcam grabber designed for video4linux devices. It is based on the xawtv webcam app, but extended to use imlib2 for applying antialised, blended truetype fonts to the image before upload. A large number of new options have been added including scp support (in addition to ftp), image archiving, and much more. It runs as a daemon and needs no X connection to operate.
Hasciicam makes it possible to have live ASCII video on the Web. It captures video from a TV card and renders it into ASCII, formatting the output into an HTML page with a refresh tag or in a live ASCII window or in a simple text file as well, giving anyone that has a bttv card, a Linux box, and a cheap modem line the ability to show a live asciivideo feed that can be browsable without any need for a plugin, Java, etc.
RAT is an RTP audio conferencing and streaming application that allows users to particpate in point-to-point and multi-point audio conferences over the Internet. Developing features include multiple sampling rates, mono/stereo, loss concealment, and IPv4/IPv6 support, and both versions feature encryption and run on a range of platforms.
SILC (Secure Internet Live Conferencing) is a protocol which provides secure conferencing services in the Internet. It can be used to send any kind of messages, in addition to normal text messages. This includes multimedia messages like images, video, and audio stream. All messages in the SILC network are encrypted and authenticated, and messages can also be digitally signed. SILC protocol supports AES, SHA-1, PKCS#1, PKCS#3, X.509, OpenPGP, and is being developed in the IETF. The software is delivered as SILC Client for end users, SILC Server for system administrators, and SILC Toolkit for application developers.
The Two Dimensional Spatialization of Sound package takes a single monaural sound signal and processes it to create a binaural signal that places the source of the sound at a selectable arbitrary place around the listener. The package makes use of a set of HRTF Measurements of a KEMAR Dummy-Head Model created by Bill Gardner and Keith Martin of the MIT Media Lab. The sound spatialization software is ANSI C, and can be ported to any platform which will support the sound I/O requirements. The package also includes an FFT written in well-structured C.
WWWcam is for grabbing, archiving, and Web publishing pictures from a video-device-based Webcam. With the CPiA webcam driver it supports even USB and parallel port webcams. Beside normal functions like connecting wwwcam directly with a browser and automatic picture reload from your Website, it has many special functions. It can write an adjustable title with timestamp in the picture, and it can perform automatic brightness correction. It can also compare the taken picture with last one and decide whether or not to save the picture for archiving. It tells you if there was activity in the camera's field of view. Finally, it does FTP upload and limits the number of pictures in a directory.
DVTS (Digital Video Transport System) sends and receives DV data using the Internet. It consists of dvsend and dvrecv - dvsend receives DV data via IEEE1394, and sends it to dvrecv using IP, while dvrecv receives DV/RTP packets, and sends DV data using an IEEE1394 interface. Using DVTS, high quality realtime video meeting can be achieved. It consumes about 8-35 Mbps of network bandwidth. Supported platforms are FreeBSD4.x, MacOSX, and Linux.
Ekiga (formely known as GnomeMeeting) is a soft phone, video conferencing, and instant messenger application for use over the Internet. It supports HD sound quality and video up to DVD size and quality. It is interoperable with many other standards compliant software, hardware, and service providers as it uses both of the major telephony standards, SIP and H.323.
The Interverse is the evolution and combination of the Web, chat, instant messaging (IM), and voice communication. It is not just a graphical user interface (GUI), but an immersive user interface (IUI). The Interverse is a virtual universe running on top of the Internet. It uses the Crystal Space 3D engine to render the user's view of the world.
