POMPANO BEACH, FL – May 10, 2007 – Onstream Media Corporation ( OTC: ONSM), a leading online service provider of live and on-demand, digital media communications and applications, announced today that as a result of its recent four year California Multiple Award Schedule (CMAS) contract, it has been awarded contracts by the State’s Resources Agency and the State's Board of Equalization to provide turnkey media creation, encoding, webcasting and archiving services for each of those agencies.
The State of California Resources Agency (CRA), which is engaged in restoring, protecting and managing the State's natural, historical and cultural resources, selected Onstream Media to produce and stream live and archived video and audio webcasts of meeting and workshop proceedings over a 20-month period for its Delta Vision Blue Ribbon Task Force, Delta Vision Stakeholder Coordination Group, California Bay-Delta Authority and Bay-Delta Public Advisory Committee, as well as other public meetings as necessary.
The State of California Board of Equalization (BOE), which focuses on tax parity oversight, ensuring that county property tax assessment practices are equal and uniform throughout the State, awarded Onstream Media a service contract to provide full turnkey audio webcasts of Board and other meetings over a 15-month period. The meetings will be broadcast from the BOE's Sacramento Headquarters, as well as its offices in Culver City.
Randy Selman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Onstream Media, stated, "These two prestigious contracts, which have a total revenue value of approximately $500,000, are a direct result of both Onstream’s status as a qualified CMAS vendor and the proven ability of our full featured webcast delivery platform to reliably provide a comprehensive set of services applicable to the BOE and CRA’s requirements. We look forward to continuing to expand our relationship with the State of California and are actively pursuing additional contractual relationships with other state agencies.”
