I belive there is more than one Sorenson codec - many sources talk about "Sorenson 2", "Sorenson 3" and so forth. A list of codecs and what they are based on would be much welcomed :-)
Sorenson the Name
Is "Sorenson" a personal name? I went to the company site, could not find a reference. --Migs 07:25, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
- The CEO is "James Lee Sorenson", so I think that answers that. --Kiand 11:09, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
- Thanks, I don't believe I missed that! --Migs 17:24, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
hello, I've seen that there was a redirection from Sorenson_Spark to Sorenson_codec. The Sorenson_codec page contains information about Sorenson Video Quantizer codec, which is not really related to Sorenson spark. I mean except the first part of its name. I think it's a bit confusing. Sorenson spark is a codec which is very close to H.263, Sorenson Video Quantizer 1 (SVQ1) is a codec of its own which can hardly be compared to any other codec and Sorenson Video Quantizer 3 (SVQ3) is a codec which can be compared to H.264.

- As Apple began to move away from proprietary codecs with its embrace of MPEG-4,
MPEG-4 is no less proprietary (dozens of companies claim patent rights in it). I'm not sure what the appropriate description here is -- "non-International-Standard"? 121a0012 (talk) 03:39, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
If a relevant article is not likely to be listed in the foreseeable future, the link should be removed.
