The Open Real-Time Ethernet (ORTE) is an implementation of the Real-Time Publish-Subscribe (RTPS) communication protocol. RTPS is a new application layer protocol targeted to real-time communication areas, and is built on the top of standard UDP stack. Since there are many TCP/IP stack implementations under many operating systems, and RTPS does not have any other special hardware or software requirements, it should be easily ported to many target platforms. Because it uses only UDP, it retains control of timing and reliability.
Flickernoise is a user-friendly VJ application optimized for the Milkymist One and the Milkymist SoC. It renders hardware-accelerated visual effects comparable (and, to some extent, compatible) with those of MilkDrop 1.x, the popular audio visualization plug-in for Winamp. Flickernoise allows the creation of visual patches and their connection with all the interfaces that the Milkymist One provides, thanks to an easy-to-use graphical user interface. The visuals can react to sound and MIDI events. A camera can be connected to create live phantasmagoric images of yourself.
