Answers incoming video Codec calls; plays an outgoing message;records an incoming message until the caller hangs up the Codec. Can be used with one or two VCRs (one for outgoing, one for incoming, or one for both).
This is unique.
Uses D-Boxes (see below) for VCR control. Written in C. Demonstrated on PC-DOS (but locks the whole machine up), and Sun UNIX using the our Codec server. It can co-exist with on a Sun.
Experimental (but pretty simple) software.
