Ogg Vorbis offers first handheld player

The Ogg Vorbis project, which aims to create a fully open, license-free alternative to the MP3 audio format, has released the first Ogg player for a handheld device. TheKompany, which makes Linux desktop tools and developer applications, released tkcPlayer for Sharp's Linux-based Zaurus handheld computer, which began shipping in the United States last week. TkcPlayer also handles MP3 files and includes features such as filtering by song attributes and playlist management. TheKompany says the Ogg files compress to 10 percent smaller than MP3 files, with 50 percent better quality on average, and consume a third less power on the Zaurus during playback. Ogg Vorbis is an open-source project aimed at creating an audio compression-decompression format free of patents and license fees. MP3 has become the de facto standard for trading audio files over the Internet because of the small size and high quality of its files, but the format is controlled by the Fraunhofer Group and other members of the MPEG Consortium. Software and makers must pay Fraunhofer royalties for each encoder distributed. Matthew Broersma reported from London. To read the full story, visit ZDNet UK.

New Vorbis version released

The open-source programmers behind Ogg Vorbis, a project to create a completely royalty-free music technology to compete with the MP3 format, have released another test version of their software. As "Release Candidate 2," this version of the technology is likely to be the last test version before Vorbis comes out with an official 1.0 release. That's a critical step for the developers, as major companies are loathe to use a technology before it has reached a first full release. Ogg Vorbis has been out in progressively more advanced forms for more than a year.

On2 cuts 40 percent of staff

Video-compression provider On2 Technologies says it has slashed its staff by 40 percent, citing financial woes. On2 said last week's layoffs were made because of a likely reduction in the amount of the financing the company could receive under its equity line of credit as a result of a weakness in the company's stock price. On2 said it had $1.2 million in first-quarter revenue. Its $700,000 monthly operating costs, excluding depreciation and amortization, will be reduced to $400,000 as a result of the layoffs. On2 said most positions were cut in support, business development and marketing. The company has 30 remaining employees. Last month, New York-based On2 unveiled plans to blend its video codec with Ogg Vorbis, a royalty-free alternative to the MP3 format. The company has also released updated versions of its technology VP4 and VP5, which On2 licenses and still remains to be a source for its revenue.
