(July 23, 2001)
ViewCast Corporation announced today the availability of its new NiagaraMAX, a portable, streaming video encoding system housed in a rugged aluminum executive briefcase that fits in an airline overhead bin.

"ViewCast's portable NiagaraMAX allows businesses to create streaming content anywhere in the world," said George Platt, ViewCast President and Chief Executive Officer. "The NiagaraMAX packages the features of ViewCast's new Niagara streaming systems -- which enable businesses to quickly, easily and affordably take immediate advantage of the efficiencies of streaming communications -- in a handsome and rugged portable package. The advantages are obvious -- as the NiagaraMAX can go to where the content is."


The NiagaraMAX is part of ViewCast's family of Niagara Streaming Systems packaged encoding solutions designed to meet the needs of video professionals, service bureaus and corporations. This compact portable system collapses into a sleek, ruggedized, briefcase-size aluminum case so it can be easily transported to offsite locations for remote streaming flexibility.

The NiagaraMAX is ideal for:

-- Live entertainment
-- Webcasting service providers.

The NiagaraMAX features:
-- High performance system with dual Pentium III 1 GHz processors

provides viewable area of a 19" CRT
-- A full array of video and audio inputs, including Composite,
S-Video, DV, and SDI with embedded audio, balanced and
unbalanced stereo and AES/EBU digital audio inputs.
-- 40x CD-RW
-- Full size keyboard with Logitech mouse
-- Weight of only 32 pounds for easy transporting
-- 19"x 14"x 7.5" dimensions when closed so the system can fit
easily into an airplane overhead storage bin

The NiagaraMAX also incorporates exclusive features available only on ViewCast Niagara Streaming Systems such as SimulStream which allows simultaneous multiple bit rate streaming in Real and Windows formats using only one streaming capture card; and Niagara SCX (Stream Control eXtension) which enables remote monitoring and control of multiple or distributed streaming encoders via a unified RealProducer and Microsoft Windows Media interface.

All Niagara Streaming Systems are fully integrated turnkey solutions that come in industry-standard 1U, 2U, and unique portable systems like the NiagaraMAX for live and on-demand webcasting production.
