Destiny Media Technologies Announces Partnership with Servecast Online Broadcasting Clipstream Distributor Lands Major European Partnership
Dec 5, 2001 Vancouver, BC - Destiny Media Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: DSNY) is pleased to announce that UK distributor, Digistream has established a major Clipstream partnership in Europe with Servecast Online Broadcasting (http://www.servecast.com).
Servecast is Europe's leading business-to-business provider of outsourced internet broadcasting services. Their high-capacity, high-speed network is dedicated to delivering the best quality video and audio.
Online video and audio is already an established business tool in the US. However, until now, no company has invested in a pan-European infrastructure sufficient to stream effectively. Servecast is pioneering the European load-balanced, edge delivery, data broadcast network.
The deal gives Servecast broader access to the burgeoning market for rich media content distribution and streaming. Blue chip Clipstream™ users include Heritage Canada, Klipmart, Telus, the Globe and Mail and the Weather Channel.
Bob Jull, Chairman of Servecast, said: "Clipstream is head and shoulders above the competition. It is already in mainstream use on the US, and this deal will deliver the same benefits to European clients that their US counterparts have been enjoying for some time."
"This agreement confirms Servecast as a leader and innovator in its market. We will continue to identify and adopt the best technologies from around the world to complement our own."
Simon Powell, Chief Executive Officer of DigiStream comments on the relationship "Servecast is widely acknowledged as a leader in its sector, and its endorsement is yet another step in confirming Clipstream as the pre-eminent Java-based streaming solution."
