ViewCast Joins Silverlight Partner Initiative

Corporation, a global provider of streaming hardware and software solutions, has
joined the Microsoft Silverlight Partner Initiative to deliver the next
generation of .NET-based media over the Internet.
utilizing Windows Media/VC-1 format, the ViewCast Niagara SCX encoding platform
can deliver streaming video and audio content to users of Silverlight, a
cross-browser, cross-platform, and cross-device plug-in offering flexibility in
Windows, Macintosh, and Linux environments. ViewCast Osprey video capture
cards, including the latest PCI Express cards, also support encoding using
Microsoft Expression Encoder software, part of the Expression product
has been a key part of the Windows Media/VC-1 streaming architecture for many
years,” said Steve Sklepowich, Group Product Manager at Microsoft.
“And its Niagara encoders and Osprey
cards fulfill a critical role in the creation of quality media content for
delivery to Silverlight-powered user experiences. As a result, ViewCast is a
welcome addition to the Silverlight Partner Initiative.”
President and Chief Operating Officer Dave Stoner commented, “The
Silverlight enhancements are expected to not only broaden demand for ViewCast
streaming hardware and software, but also add value for current customers and
Silverlight-compatible Internet video is a natural evolution of our
long-standing VC-1 and Windows Media capabilities,” Stoner continued.
“With Windows Media/VC-1 capability, our powerful Niagara
encoders deliver high-quality, high-resolution live streaming plus the newest
rich-media capabilities that Silverlight offers. For customers using the
Expression family of tools to create rich Web applications, our Osprey cards
remain the hardware of choice for capturing media content from real-time
broadcast sources.”
flexible Niagara SCX and Niagara SCX Pro software enable users to set up and
control Niagara streaming encoders remotely,
throughout an enterprise or over the Internet. Niagara SCX Pro empowers users
to remotely and simultaneously encode multiple streams at multiple bit rates in
multiple resolutions and formats, including Microsoft Windows Media/VC-1,
MPEG-4, Adobe Flash Live and more. Using the Niagara SCX Web Services
interface, developers can integrate management and monitoring of all SCX-supported
encoding formats through a single, unified interface.
