SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 5, 2001-- PlayStream, a leading provider of automated online streaming media services, today announced an agreement with Destiny Media Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of easy-to-use tools and enabling technologies to distribute digital media via the Internet.
Under the terms of the agreement, PlayStream will provide its customers with access to Destiny Media Technologies' VideoClipstream™ and AudioClipstream™. Currently, PlayStream provides streaming media services for over 1,200 businesses and consumers worldwide.
``This partnership furthers PlayStream's mission to empower our customers with easy access to the best technologies for managing and deploying digital media over the Internet,'' states George Grubb, CEO for PlayStream. He further adds, ``with VideoClipstream™ and AudioClipstream™, PlayStream's customers will be able to stream audio and video over the Internet into the viewer's browser without requiring the viewer to have a media player installed.''
VideoClipstream™ and AudioClipstream™ use powerful, patent pending compression, decompression, and reproduction processes that take advantage of the Java platform to deliver high quality streaming audio and video of any length to over 90% of the internet viewing audience.. VideoClipstream™ and AudioClipstream™ use standard, widely available and implemented Internet serving and viewing hardware, software and protocols to present its ultra small Java applets. In addition, VideoClipstream™ and AudioClipstream™ utilize a quick and intuitive creation process that simplifies the task of implementing streaming media in a web page, email, banner advertisement, or Internet application.
Security is a priority with the new release of VideoClipstream™ 2.0, which is designed to assist in preventing the piracy of video streams. The VideoClipstream™ security features specifically prevent stolen content (downloaded .vcs files) to be streamed from other servers, as well as preventing the piracy of streaming content and bandwidth by sites who remotely refer to your content, and present it from within their own web pages.
