Examples of breakthrough technologies invented by BitJazz and members of our technical staff include:
JavaMovie, one of the first streaming audio+video codecs for e-mail and web,
written entirely in portable Java 1, featuring antialiased blending, masking, and scaling,
with a featherweight (<17KB) decompressor that can be downloaded over a modem in 2.5 seconds,
and can display four times the resolution or frame rate of any comparable codec.
The Phonetic Engine, the first real-time continuous-speech speaker-independent speech recognizer,
which together with Kai-Fu Lee's syntactic processor won the DARPA Speech Understanding Competition.
Featuring a speaker-adaptive filterbank and pitch detector, a self-training rule system,
and neural networks optimized for sequential processors.
The Pyx+Pixie movie codec used for the blockbuster Toy Story CD-ROM games,
featuring the first full-screen (640x480 p/f) full-motion (15 f/s) full-color movie playback,
off double-speed CD-ROM,
still unmatched in quality and decompression speed.
A cross-platform real-time software 2D,3D renderer with texturing and transparency,
for Pacific Tech's interactive Graphing Calculator.
SheerVideo, a cross-platform lossless image and video codec,
the fastest video codec in the world,
and the only lossless codec supporting all popular film and video standards.
Synchromy, the world's only lossless color-conversion engine.
Other breakthrough technologies include
nondestructive quasilinear transforms (using novel nonarithmetic operations),
the fastest NURBS tesselator (using a breakthrough nonrecursive algorithm),
perfectly reversible linear and arbitrary nonlinear digital filters,
optimal damped sinusoidal signal determination (using a new direct analytical approach),
perfectly lossless color conversion,
the fastest quadric tesselator (using a breakthrough linear algorithm),
complex exponential splines,
an efficient longest substring algorithm,
neural networks optimized for sequential processors,
and many more.
