21st Century Media Inc. Delivers 'cast:stream' for Mac OS X

(January 08, 2002)
21st Century Media Inc., today announced cast:stream for Mac OS X, its flagship presentation delivery application suite. cast:stream delivers dynamic on-line presentations to both Mac and Windows users by synchronizing live streaming broadcasts with any of the 80 rich media types supported by QuickTime 5. Users can easily create cast:stream media in applications such as Microsoft PowerPoint, Adobe Photoshop, and Macromedia Flash. cast:stream's stand-alone application uses intelligent caching and synchronization technology to overcome many of the compatibility and scalability problems encountered by some browser-based systems.

"cast:stream redefines the way presentations are delivered over the Internet," said Jim Baker, CEO of 21st Century Media. "With its intelligent caching and synchronization, combined with the power of QuickTime, cast:stream for Mac OS X gets beyond simple streaming broadcasts, creating broadcasts that come alive with beautiful graphics, animation and QuickTime VR. Now, anyone can easily create powerful interactive presentations, and users get a consistent, high-quality, cross-platform experience from modem to broadband."

"Mac OS X gives developers access to QuickTime's complete multimedia architecture including Cubic VR, RTP/RTSP video streaming and MPEG support," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "cast:stream is a great example of how the power and flexibility of Mac OS X and QuickTime can be leveraged to bring about a tremendous solution for communication and education."

The cast:stream suite consists of player, server and moderator applications that run natively on Mac OS X as well as Mac OS 9. cast:stream also supports Windows 98, 2000, NT, and XP. Targeted to enterprise customers, cast:stream is designed for e-learning solutions in Education, as well as Business solutions such as on-line training and corporate communications.

cast:stream is immediately available from 21st Century Media and through a network of authorized value added resellers. Visit us at MacTech Central at Macworld Conference & Expo, January 7-11, 2002 in San Francisco, California.
