SMIL Technology Demonstrators
This page provides links to a set of applications demonstrators that use various implementations of SMIL technology. These implementation are not based on the Ambulant player, but the results of using these tools can be rendered in Ambulant and other SMIL 3.0 players.
These are all unsupported demonstrators and are provided to help illustrate the power of SMIL.
Because of production constraints, not all of the technology demonstrators listed below will be available when AMBULANT 2.0 is released, but we expect to have all versions available by mid-December 2008. (Links to currently non-active functionality are set in red.)

The technology demonstrators are for execution in a browser window using a local Javascript engine and Ambulant server-side technology. The demos allow SMIL presentations to be exported. The may then be used with any SMIL 3.0 compliant player. We know that they work with Ambulant 2.0. Use the links below to obtain a copy of the AMBULANT player.
