Rich Media Studio combines video and xGA/DVI capture into one video stream to deliver dynamic presentations to Intranet and Internet audiences
NAB 2009, LAS VEGAS – April 20, 2009- VBrick Systems, Inc., the world leader in
Enterprise IP Video solutions, today announced the availability of VBrick’s Rich Media
Studio, a video and data capture appliance that combines video and xGA/DVI capture
into one video stream. Launched at NAB 2009, VBrick’s Rich Media Studio allows
organizations to easily deliver live rich media presentations over IP networks and
record content for on-demand viewing. The integrated stream can be distributed to
tens of thousands of viewers without having an adverse impact on the network.
“Many VBrick customers require the ability to integrate desktop graphics with their video.
The Rich Media Studio will enable them to easily create presentations with convenient
audio and video mixers, pre-configured templates and touch screen commands,”
said John Shaw, VBrick’s Executive Vice President. “The Rich Media Studio combines
the video and xGA/DVI output into one stream, which makes the solution much more
scalable and manageable. Customers are freed from managing tens to hundreds to
thousands of .jpg images that are often created by competing solutions.”
In a typical user environment, video and content are delivered as separate files and
placed into a web application. When multiple viewers attempt to access the information,
it often results in the network becoming bogged down. However, when information is
sent over one video stream, VBrick’s Reflector technology allows it to be distributed
in a scalable manner.
Ideal applications for VBrick’s Rich Media Studio include executive video broadcasts
and webinars, streaming of university lectures and distance learning, and other distributed
The Rich Media Studio is a simple, plug and play appliance that works seamlessly with
VBrick’s EtherneTV ecosystem. Presentations created with the Rich Media Studio are
captured in their native resolution and can be delivered to multiple endpoints – PCs, Macs,
VBrick Set Top Boxes (for display on plasmas and LCDs), and even to mobile devices via
picture-in-picture functionality. Users also have the convenience of being able to switch
between multiple audio and video inputs, such as cameras, xGA/DVI from computers,
document cameras or DVDs, to create dynamic presentations. Once the presentations
have been created, they can be easily viewed on the EtherneTV system, or published
to the Internet via VBrick’s managed IP Video service.
The Rich Media Studio will be available for shipping in May. To learn more about VBrick,
