DALLAS (May 8, 2001) ViewCast Corporation, a leading provider
of Internet and networked video solutions, today introduced a new business concept
a video solutions portal that allows businesses to add streaming video to corporate
Web sites with point-and-click ease. The portal, www.viewcastonline.com, offers
a variety of new tools, packaged products and end-to-end support which enable
even small-to-medium-size businesses to take advantage of the power of Internet
Prior to ViewCast Online, putting video on the Internet involved numerous steps,
technical and otherwise video capture and encoding, setting up delivery servers,
negotiating bandwidth with content deliver networks, configuring servers and
complicated Web site coding, to name a few. ViewCast’s video solutions portal
automates these steps into one simple online process. With ViewCast Online, if
a business has a Web site, Internet access and an e-mail address, it can take
advantage of streaming video.
The company is currently offering two distinct packages at its video solutions
EZStream, which combines software and specially packaged services that enable
businesses with content to capture, edit, encode, publish, host and deliver streaming
video/rich media content on corporate Web sites.
StreamStory, which enables a business to have its corporate message professionally
produced and made available on its Web site in one easy, low-cost step.
Both services take advantage of ViewCast Online’s high-performance content delivery
network. ViewCast Online offers a variety of competitively priced hosting rate
plans for streaming content. Managing accounts is equally simple. Business clients
can change or renew hosting rate plans, change account profiles and set up or
change e-mail notification flags for traffic and usage metrics information and
Further enhancements and offerings are planned for the future.
