¨ Software connection scripts to allow connection of the video device to the IPOD.
¨ File conversion/compression software to take incoming files and convert them to various file types: no compression, mpeg2 compression, quicktime, audio only, and others
¨ Interface software for communication of IPOD with macintosh. Software will have simple features such as import video, import audio, export a/v etc. This software will also allow future updates to be pushed to the ipod for the connection device.
¨ Installation package for both the ipod script and the software on the host computer.
