T.A.G. Production Tools Will Make You SMIL

At the Fall Internet Show this week in New York, Digital Renaissance debuted the T.A.G. Production Suite, its comprehensive suite of tools used to create streaming media applications.

The suite includes one of the first tools designed specifically for working with RealNetworks RealSystem G2.

The T.A.G. Productions Suite includes all the tools neccessary to create streaming multimedia applications, including the T.A.G. Editor 2.0, the T.A.G. SMIL Editor and the T.A.G. Batch Encoder.

In addition, the T.A.G. Editor 2.0 enables developers to synchronize audio, video and text within a presentation along with the URLflips, hotspots, captions, marquees, teleprompters, tickers, etc. This release includes support for RealText, RealPix, RealVideo, RealAudio and of course, SMIL.

The T.A.G. SMIL Editor was designed to enable developers to continue using both a traditional text-based editor and a visual content editor. The T.A.G. SMIL Editor also has new features for checking SMIL syntax, as well as the ability to preview previously created content.

The T.A.G. Batch Encoder is used to automatically batch convert non-streaming files, including AVI, WAV and MOV files, to RealSystem G2 Surestream or NetShow 3.0 streaming files, saving the developer much time and effort.

The Suite is currently in beta release and is available now from Digital Reanaissance, with a final release scheduled for November of
