LOS GATOS, Calif. – (October 24, 2000) — Streaming21, Inc.

The integrated system is engineered to address the distributed needs of telecommunications firms, service providers (ASPs, ISPs, BSPs, etc.), cable operators, and enterprises.
Since HP offers a broad spectrum of products and services that complement ours, it was natural for us to work together to provide a carrier-class end-to-end solution to the market, says Dr. David Du, CEO, Streaming21.
S21’s Media Server provides broadcast-quality solutions to enable media delivery services to millions of end-users in geographically dispersed environments.
