Multimedia, AV Dirac is an advanced royalty-free video compression format designed for a wide range of uses, from delivering low-resolution web content to broadcasting HD and beyond, to near-lossless studio editing. The v1.0.0 version was released yesterday, and the new VLC version supports playback of .ts/.drc Dirac files.

"What are the experiences with Dirac Pro and VC-2?

Ask British people who watched the Olympics 2008. Dirac Pro was used to transmit HDTV signals from Beijing to the BBC.

Since I didn't read any disparaging remarks over BBC Beijing coverage I should assume that it's a success? I don't value that much.
