Onstream Media Launches Streaming PublisherT
Full Service Web Publishing Solution Enables Content Owners to Easily Manage Audio, Video and Multi-Media Assets
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – March 18, 2009 – Onstream Media Corporation ( OTC: ONSM), an online service provider of live and on-demand internet video, today announced the launch of Streaming PublisherT - an all-in-one, web-based publishing solution that enables business users to easily upload, manage, transcode, syndicate and report on multiple rich media assets. Streaming Publisher is the latest upgrade to Onstream's Digital Media Services Platform (DMSP).
With the rapid proliferation of video, audio and other multi-media assets over the Internet, corporations, publishers, media companies, digital agencies, search engine marketers and content developers are finding it more difficult to locate, manage and monetize their ever-increasing base of digital media. Furthermore, search engines have implemented a shift in their rankings methodology, whereby web sites having rich media content are being targeted to receive a growing portion of all directed search engine traffic. Streaming Publisher resolves these issues by enabling business users to aggregate, automate, and greatly simplify workflows, resulting in greater productivity and profitability potential as well as allowing more time for content creation and monetization as opposed to cost-consuming administrative tasks.
"Streaming Publisher takes the traditional disparate and time-consuming patch-work out of maximizing your various digital media assets by centralizing and automating the functions into one highly-intuitive and easy-to-use tool," stated Randy Selman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Onstream Media Corporation. "At a time when budgets are being constrained, businesses are looking for bundled solutions like this that reduce over-lapping technology costs and streamline workflows - from creation and distribution to management and reporting."
Streaming Publisher is designed from top to bottom with advanced, automated and user-friendly features that make rich media management as easy as possible, including the ability to:
- Publish and manage rich media assets, which can be uploaded in seconds in a familiar Windows Outlook-like environment with automatically generated meta data created for each item;
- Transcode media from one format to another. Until now it has been very difficult to create high quality videos in one format and convert them into another. Streaming Publisher solves this problem, converting video into M4V-iPhone, M4v-iPod, MPEG, Real Media, WAV, WMV and others;
- Create video RSS feeds in seconds and share them with subscribers or publish them online;
- Develop a highly customized Flash player that enables viewers to watch a video through their standard browser;
- Generate graphical reports using the built-in Report Wizard. Available as pre-set templates or customizable on the fly, these reports can be downloaded to Excel, printed out or saved;
- Locate media assets through advanced search capabilities, which enables users to search across a number of different variables to find the assets you need;
- Stream over Akamai's global distribution platform to ensure you deliver TV-quality images and preserve brand integrity with a consistent superior online experience. Users will experience the fastest and richest web viewing experience possible;
- Create roles and assign permissions to view media assets and restrict or allow individual operations.
Users of Onstream Media's Store and Stream version of the DMSP may easily upgrade to the Streaming Publisher version for a higher monthly fee.
