– April 11, 2008 - VBrick Systems, Inc., the industry leader in online networked video, today announced that its longstanding partnership with PowerStream, a leading streaming media solutions provider, now includes VBoss, VBrick’s simple end-to-end solution that empowers anyone to offer live video content to a worldwide audience over the internet.
Through VBoss, VBrick is introducing a complete online Video Streaming as a Service (VSasS) product offering that can dramatically increase viewer participation of an event by streaming content when it delivers the most impact - LIVE! PowerStream is providing the VBoss service with an infrastructure to provide flawless delivery, even with complex, synchronized multimedia presentations. “Providing turn key solutions to VBrick customers has been a tradition at PowerStream for the past seven years,” explains Paul Kromrei, PowerStream’s co-founder and CTO. “VBrick and PowerStream have always had the same goals: to simplify the broadcast process. With VBoss, VBrick has provided the industry with a great tool to achieve just that.”
VBoss will offer organizations and content owners a one-stop-shop to manage the entire video broadcasting process from live source capture to final delivery to viewers in real-time. “PowerStream has been a great VBrick partner since 2001” said Rich Mavrogeanes, VBrick Founder, CTO and acting VBoss General Manager. “PowerStream was the first to support MPEG-4. Many of our customers use PowerStream today, especially for multimedia presentations, and we are excited to be offering the service directly to their customers via the new VBoss service.”
VBoss enables organizations to maintain business control while creating engaging Internet TV programming. End-users are given their own VBoss account and designated media management capabilities that allow them to have the power of channel brand ownership and content creation. By adding other systems elements to the video appliance, such as network storage and reflectors for bandwidth amplification, VBrick can provide a complete system.
