Dec. 2012
TMM, Inc. announces TRUDEF™ .FVF ('Fractal Video File') and .FIF ('Fractal Intra Frame') File Extensions.
Nov. 2012
TMM, Inc. announces completion of TRUDEF™ fractal Video Microsoft Media Foundation 2012 Library.
Jul. 2012
TMM, Inc. announces it has made significant strides in updating the TRUDEF codec. The programming work has focused on updating and enhancing the Company's proprietary VDK 1.0 to 1.4 codec that Iterated Systems Inc. transferred to the Company in 1993. The Company enlarges the development team to speed up the progress towards a commercial product.
Feb. 2012
TMM, Inc. announces that Dr. Alan Sloan has joined the Company's newly formed Advisory Board. In 1987, Dr. Sloan co-founded Iterated Systems, Inc. ("Iterated") with Dr. Barnsley to create a business to develop and market fractal image compression technology.
Nov. 2011
Shareholders vote to install a new management team. Gerard Cavanaugh is elected President CEO. Michael Kozole is elected Secretary Treasurer.
2007
Total Multimedia Inc. carried out further development of its original SoftVideo fractal codec and announced a revised version now called TRUDEF™ high definition fractal video.
1998
On June 30, 1998, Total Multimedia Inc. emerges from bankruptcy as TMM, Inc. retaining worldwide rights to fractal software development for video compression.
1994
Microsoft Corporation’s Multimedia Publishing Group uses Fractal Compression to incorporate over 10,000 digital images in their Encarta multimedia encyclopedia.

Total Multimedia Inc. licensed SoftVideo to Spectrum Holobyte for use in its CD-ROM games including Falcon Gold and Star Trek: The Next Generation A Final Unity.

PC Magazine concludes that, "The advantages of fractal compression are unmatched". BYTE comments, "for multimedia or other image delivery applications, Fractals is clearly a fantastic choice". SoftVideo and ClearVideo also known as RealVideo (Fractal) were early fractal video compression products.
1993
After an exhaustive review of compression technologies, fractal technology was selected as the archived medium for the priceless works on the Sistine Chapel. Only Fractals provided the image fidelity required for scholarly examination and the periodic restoration of the works of artists like Michelangelo.
1992
A major breakthrough for Iterated Systems was the automatic fractal transform process which eliminated the need for human intervention during compression as was the case in early experimentation with fractal compression technology. Barnsley's graduate student Arnaud Jacquin implements the first automated fractal algorithm.

Total Multimedia Inc. and Iterated Systems Inc. collaborated to bring fractal compression to video. The companies enter into a License Agreement whereby Total Multimedia Inc. holds the exclusive worldwide master license for fractal video compression and decompression algorithms. Development resulted in SoftVideo.

Iterated Systems Inc. signed a license agreement with Total Multimedia Inc. where Total Multimedia Inc. was delivered and accepted and paid in full for source code versions of VDK 1.0 to VDK 1.4 fractal video compression and are wholly owned property of Total Multimedia Inc.

Total Multimedia Inc. and Iterated Systems Inc. jointly introduces Poem and TMMI Producer fractal-based video compression software and tools.
1991
MTT Visions merges with Randy Jackson Entertainment Corp. and changes its name to Total Multimedia Inc. TMMI’s products include a complete suite of video editing and authoring tools for the digital video and multimedia computing markets, commonly referred to as the "interactive Multimedia Market".
1990
MTT Visions was founded by Phillip Taylor Kramer as a California Corporation. The Company develops, integrates, licenses and distributes video compression and decompression (codec) software for CD-ROM Publishers and Multimedia Developers.
1987
Michael Barnsley and Alan Sloan form Iterated Systems Inc. Michael Barnsley leads development of fractal compression, and holds several patents on the technology.
