[AG-TECH] Any more H.264 news?

I'd like to know more about this too. We've been using the beta H.264
VIC client for a while now and it would be nice to know what progress is
being made. The only thing I would say is that, well, the performance
hit is shockingly bad in the current H.264 VIC client. What interests me
much more is the MPEG-4 codec also offered. It has roughly a quarter of
the load of H.264 with very comparable quality. 


We don't currently substitute the VIC tool provided in AG3.1 for the
beta version, since it's beta and all. Instead we use the beta version
of VIC and MPEG-4 for meetings between our 2 sites when there are
problems with the bridges (we're limited to unicast at RAL). Since you
can launch VIC and RAT as unicast tools just pointing at the remote site
IP, it's something we run off a batch script.

Has there been any more progress with H.264 and AG 3.1? Also has anyone
seen the new Osprey 700 HD?
