iStreamPlanet Announces Support for Microsoft Silverlight 4

On the Heels of Releasing Its Video Workflow Automation Platform, iStreamPlanet Is Building on That With the Silverlight 4 Offline Content Protection, Multicast Support, Webcam and Mobile Device Support

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 04/13/10 -- iStreamPlanet, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and provider of digital media strategy, services and software applications, announced today that it will fully integrate Microsoft Silverlight 4 into its Video Workflow Automation Platform along with updating its applications that its customers have come to rely upon. Customers using iStreamPlanet's Video Workflow Automation Platform could already automatically schedule, provision and publish content once and deliver anywhere. With the addition of Silverlight 4 built into the Video Workflow Automation Platform, publishers can also create one application that is optimized for the highest quality viewing in all major browsers on Mac, Windows, and Linux client operating systems as well as on a growing range of devices including Windows ® Phone 7, Symbian and Moblin.

"With the recent release of our Video Workflow Automation Platform which we developed and used for the highly successful web broadcast of the Olympics for NBC, CTV and NRK, we are excited to once again offer our customers the very best possible tools for end-to-end live and on-demand media delivery," said Randy Levine, SVP of Digital Partnerships at iStreamPlanet. "The technology enhancements in Silverlight 4 enable us to continue to innovate while we develop products and services that bring our customers a higher level of efficiency, cost savings and further expand the ability to protect their content both online and offline."

Additionally, thanks to Silverlight 4, customers of iStream Presenter will now be able to take advantage of its support for Webcam and microphones which will allow for more interactivity and collaboration and make a very robust product even easier to use and more functional. The enterprise customer, who is most likely to use iStream Presenter, will also benefit from Silverlight 4 support for multicast. Customers in the enterprise will be able to lower the cost of streaming broadcast events such as company meetings, announcements and training, while interoperating seamlessly with existing Windows Media Server streaming infrastructure.

"Microsoft is pleased Silverlight partner iStreamPlanet has invested early in supporting Silverlight and the next-generation application development platform into its Video Workflow Automation Platform," said Brian Goldfarb, director of the developer platform group at Microsoft Corp. "Products like the Video Workflow Automation Platform help developers use their existing skills to create unique experiences that run across many and varied devices."
