Apple releases QuickTime 6

After an extended public preview, Apple Computer Inc. Monday released QuickTime 6, the latest version of their popular digital media technology.

QuickTime 6 features a file format that is used as the foundation of MPEG-4, a streaming media technology that delivers higher quality content with more conservation of bandwidth.

The software also features AAC Audio, the "new standard in professional audio," according to Apple. The codec used by QuickTime for AAC utilizes signal processing technology developed by Dolby Labs, and brings variable bit rate encoding to QuickTime as well.

QuickTime 6 also sports skip protection for streaming media, an updated user interface, a new DVC Pro PAL video codec, support for Macromedia Flash 5, a new JPEG 2000 still image code for Mac OS X, enhanced AppleScript support, and many new developer APIs.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
