DigiMeld Launches Online Video Portal for Independent Content Providers Using Its Grid-Streaming PlatformDigiMeld.tv Designed for High-Quality Publishing and Delivery of Live and On-Demand Channels for Independent Video (September 22, 2008)
DMN Newswire--2008-9-22--DigiMeld, a provider of software solutions for streaming and live Internet broadcasting, today announced that it has launched DigiMeld TV, an online video portal for independent and commercial video producers to self-publish live or on-demand streaming channels delivered in high quality using DigiMeld SuperStreamSM, the Company's Grid-streaming technology. DigiMeld will demonstrate the DigiMeld TV portal at the Streaming Media West conference in San Jose, September 23-25, in Booth #410 of the McEnery Convention Center.
The DigiMeld TV portal creates narrowcast video channels that are approved and licensed through DigiMeld, and are branded by publishers or aggregators. Using DigiMelds grid streaming solution, film festivals or niche broadcasters could transmit real-time events to thousands of Internet viewers. DigiMeld TV provides ad insertion and branding opportunities and provides viewer forums, as well as visitor and viewer statistics.
"The independent producer now has more power to cultivate viewer interest online than ever before, and DigiMeld TV is another tool that they can use to efficiently capture an audience and engage in real-time dialogues with viewers," said Alex Mashinsky, CEO of DigiMeld. "The broadcaster and advertiser need new ways to leverage their investments in Internet video, and we have created a portal that uses our grid streaming solution to enable a true broadcast-quality, mass-event distribution."
DigiMeld TV is offering one-year licensing agreements for narrowcasters, enabling them to stream to hundreds of thousands of viewers concurrently. Content providers can sign up at the DigiMeld TV portal at www.digimeld.tv to submit proposals.
After approving submitted proposals, DigiMeld delivers publishing accounts and publishing software to content providers, who can then publish their content (live channels or on-demand videos) to the DigiMeld TV platform. Other delivery tools or features are also available upon request.
The DigiMeld TV portal can:
- generate a user-controlled playlist for self-publishing of linear video channels
- store and deliver on-demand videos
- deliver real-time viewer statistics and demographics
- create geographically targeted broadcasts
- provide flexible ad-insertion modules such as pre-roll, mid-roll, scrolling text and picture-in-picture
- support payment-based business models such as channel subscription and pay-per-view
- provide viewer interactive features such as live chat while watching and community/forum
- provide search engine optimization to promote publishers' content on the web
DigiMeld SuperStream leverages a technique that enables DigiMeld viewers in the DigiMeld grid streaming network to simultaneously retrieve, view, and share streaming video data with other viewers, inside a safe, encrypted virtual network. DigiMeld SuperStream underwent a successful live, 100,000-viewer trial with no down time. DigiMeld also conducted several live, high-quality broadcast-quality streaming trials with NASA Television in the past year.
DigiMeld Inc., based in mid-town Manhattan, provides broadcasters, networks, and business enterprises with a high-quality, affordable way to stream live, linear video channels, and 24/7 over the Internet. For more information, please visit the company web site at www.digimeld.com.
