ONSTREAM MEDIA UPGRADES ITS DIGITAL MEDIA SERVICES PLATFORM WITH ADVANCED WEB FEATURES
POMPANO BEACH, FL – December 20, 2006 – Onstream Media Corporation (OTC: ONSM), a leading online service provider of live and on-demand, digital media communications and applications, today announced new Web 2.0 features, automation and video search capabilities will be available on its Digital Media Services Platform (DMSP) during the first quarter of 2007.
The enhancements enable Onstream Media to easily interface its new Web 2.0 technology with popular applications such as social networks, video classified advertising and video oriented portals. In addition, the automation upgrades will provide “one click” publishing capabilities, allowing the company’s DMSP users to instantly publish a video in multiple formats to the Internet. Onstream Media’s updated video processing technology will also enable its customers to convert speech within videos to text, which greatly improves the accuracy of video search by users.
Unlike many of the “video on the web” companies, Onstream Media continues to deploy its development efforts towards the inevitable integration of the Internet and television by providing tools and services to the professional video content industry, including broadcasters and publishers, as well as websites that contain user-generated content. As a result, many major media and entertainment companies are already using Onstream Media’s DMSP to provide their audiences with fast, convenient access to search videos of all types, including news, weather, sports, movie trailers, music and more.
“With the ever-increasing amount of digital information being created and shared through multiple mediums, more and more companies are utilizing Onstream Media’s video search, indexing, encoding and ad insertion capabilities to more effectively monetize their content and increase viewer stickiness,” said Randy Selman, president and chief executive officer of Onstream Media. “We continue to anticipate market and company needs and provide our clients with the most efficient Digital Media Services Platform to host, manage, distribute and monetize video over the Internet.”
