Research analyst says new version of Video Furnace IP video distribution system delivers significant enhancements(December 18, 2008)
DMN Newswire--2008-12-18-- LAKE FOREST, Ill. ? Dec. 16, 2008 ? Interactive Media Strategies, a top enterprise communications research and consulting firm, recently published a First Look Product Spotlight report on Video Furnace, Inc. (www.videofurnace.com), a leading provider of enterprise-class IP video solutions, and Version 4.3, the latest release of its IP video distribution solution. Version 4.3 provides network administrators with unprecedented management capabilities, giving them complete command and control over every aspect of how IP video is used on their networks.
The First Look paper, written by Steve Vonder Haar, research director, explores highlights of the new release and its implications for both Video Furnace and the IP video industry at large. Vonder Haar believes that Version 4.3 delivers significant performance enhancements and broadens Video Furnace's horizons "by enabling its systems to work with open-standard content encoded with systems developed by other vendors." He also concludes that with Version 4.3, Video Furnace "clearly signals an intention to more aggressively evolve into a vendor that generates its value from supplying content management solutions that are increasingly capable of inter-operating with systems and video publishing platforms developed by other vendors."
