The racerocks.com project would not be possible without the technology available from APPLE.

From the beginning, in January 2000, it was clear that we would have to purchase and run Sorenson Broadcaster on Apple (iMacs ), Streaming the video on Apple G4s running QuickTime Streaming Server. The First G4 500 tower computer to enter Canada arrived in February, 2000. At our opening, this Server was able to effectively deliver live content to the web.

webcast In June 2000, Apple first became a sponsor when APPLE CANADA recognized the significance of our project and loaned us a new Powerbook G3 500 for the two weeks of mobile webcasts in June 2000.

As a result of that initial support, Apple Canada sent us the same computer for our project in July 2000. At the New York MacWorld Conference in July, our presentation of a live underwater webcast from Race Rocks prompted an offer from The APPLE LEARNING INTERCHANGE for a partnership. The result was that the QuickTime live video streams are now being hosted by the Apple Learning Interchange over the Akamai Internet distribution network. We are extremely grateful to APPLE for this generous on-going support. Two video streams have been operating since the summer of 2000 on the AKAMAI network.

In October, 2000, APPLE hosted us for a presentation of the live Underwater QuickTime stream at the QuickTime Live Convention in California.

In March of 2001, APPLE Canada came to
our assistance again with the generous
donation of a G4 Titanium PowerBook.
We used this for our mobile webcasts and
for the creation of new archived video
clips using the iMovie
software.
In April of 2001, a set of three AirPort cards was provided by the Apple Learning Institute in order to make all the cameras webcast wirelessly from the island.
In June of 2002, The APPLE LEARNING INTERCHANGE OPENED THE NEW GALLERY OF FEATURED EXHIBITS .

Race Rocks has been included on the ALI website as one of their exhibits.
