Modular solution streamlines and automates complex video production processes, enhances collaboration and maximizes efficiencies across the enterprise

PLANO, Texas -- ViewCast Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: VCST), a developer of industry-leading hardware and software for the transformation, management and delivery of professional quality video over IP and mobile networks, today unveiled ViewCast Media Platform (VMp(TM)). VMp is a unified framework that helps organizations manage the full life cycle of their digital media content, including IP video. It supports online video publishing, live video streaming, video on-demand and digital asset management. The technology obtained through the acquisition of Ancept in 2009 provides the core functionality of VMp, including content acquisition, transformation, indexing, workflow and distribution.

ViewCast President and CEO Dave Stoner noted that organizations from all sectors, especially media & entertainment, education, retail/CPG, finance and government, are looking for new ways to leverage the power of digital media to attract new audiences, engage with customers, build brand equity, train and communicate more effectively with distributed workforces, in order to get products to market faster. ViewCast provides a single platform to address all of these requirements. Its unique approach unifies the capabilities of digital asset management (DAM) for production, video on demand (VOD) systems for training, enterprise video communication (EVC) systems for mass communication, on-line video publishing systems for outbound communications as well as live scheduling and event management.

"Digital media is transforming the way we communicate, educate, persuade and entertain," Stoner said. "VMp is the first unified solution to address the many cross-functional objectives that exist in today's enterprise. By combining ViewCast's industry-leading Osprey and Niagara IP video encoding solutions with the capabilities of VMp, we've created the most comprehensive solution available for driving value with digital media in today's IP-centric digital media marketplace."
