Data Transfer

Overview

Our technology is called ROCKIT. ROCKIT will revolutionize and support the trend of digitizing the delivery of complex applications such as video games, complex 3D visualization tools, CAD/CAM applications and much more. Instead of waiting as long as several hours for a full download plus installation time, users of our technology are able to start applications in full quality without any latency after only a small fraction of the total download.

Examples

The following table illustrates the test results obtained by ROCKIT when applying our technology in various large applications, such as blockbuster video games.

How it works

The technology’s monitor analyzes the original application and delivers an optimized data package. This optimization yields significantly smaller delays between download and launch in comparison to conventional compression algorithms. After downloading just a few percent of the application it can be launched in full quality and is capable of interacting locally with a native user experience. This procedure does not require access to the the application’s source code.
