Onstream Media Corporation Announces Live QuickTime Streaming Capabilities
Company Responds to Growing Demand for Apple based Products and Services
POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Jan. 10 -- Onstream Media Corporation ( OTC: ONSM - News), a leading online service provider of live and on-demand, digital media communications and applications, announced today the Company will now be offering live QuickTime encoding and streaming. While Windows Media and Real Media still remain the most common choices for corporate communications webcasting, more and more companies are requesting the addition of Live QuickTime streaming to better reach the Apple users in their audiences. Live QuickTime streaming is particularly popular in the education market, with a higher use of Apple computers in the classroom.
"Our educational clients, such as Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and The History Channel, require that their live broadcasts also be delivered in QuickTime for the classroom setting," remarked Randy Selman, CEO of Onstream Media. "But we are now also starting to see a marked increase in the number of corporate customers looking to better reach this audience segment. Just this past week, Onstream Media webcast two events from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) utilizing QuickTime encoding. In addition, as part of our mobile video initiative, we expect that our QuickTime streaming as well as our other supported streaming video formats should soon find their way onto the new mobile devices such as the Apple iPhone, Motorola Q and Cingular Blackjack."
The availability of Live QuickTime streaming as an integral feature of the company's VisualWebcaster(TM) platform represents yet another facet of Onstream Media's overall efforts to provide a broad array of tools and services that facilitate both the management and distribution of audio and video content via the Internet and mobile devices.
