Onstream Media Corporation ( OTC: ONSM), a leading online service provider of live and on-demand internet video, corporate web communications and content management applications, today announced the official launch of its high quality, live mobile video streaming service enabled for iPhone and BlackBerry users.
The new mobile video streaming service was developed with Onstream Media's leading Digital Media Services Platform (DMSP) technology which services clients in the Global 2000, Media and Entertainment, and Business-to-Business community. The service is device agnostic, enabling adaptive and segmented streaming to popular mobile devices using Akamai's Content Delivery Network.

The service enables subscribers to receive live and/or on-demand mobile wireless-based video including concerts and other live entertainment on their mobile "smartphones" including Blackberries and iPhones. Ocean20 recently webcast the rock band Creed live and will soon provide live mobile wireless streaming for additional rock groups, directly to these smart phones.
