Pixago Introduces Online Streaming Management Thursday 15 February 2001 PDF Print Free trial of online streaming management software goes live today Today Pixago, the digital streaming and distribution specialist, invites companies to test their online media management software, Light Broadcast Desk. Pixago expects that the trial will demonstrate how easy it is to manage distribution and tracking of company videos online. People trying out the software will also be able to put a media clip online for free. Following the success of Pixago's recent free video digitisation offer, which commenced 15 January and targets production houses, Light Broadcast Desk, is on the web for everyone to try at www.pixago.com. All companies with an Internet presence are encouraged to register for free to use the application. This offer allows companies to upload one clip to the Internet and manage the distribution and tracking of the audio and video. There are sample images available on the site should there be a lack of digitised media from the registered user. Pixago will also send users an encoded file for them to upload if they have none of their own. Light Broadcast Desk will enable users to distribute their clips, at no cost, for thirty days with any company video of their choice. For example, a company could have the chairman's speech online free for 30 days! The full version of Broadcast Desk is a unique software application designed to manage the distribution of web enabled clips. Companies can select distribution avenues and pay-per-view options. The control over various streaming options remains with the video owner. Pixago believe that their methods are far simpler than existing routes to web-streaming. The company is also confident that their service will shorten approval processes and change the way that video production houses distribute content. Richard Bennett, CEO at Pixago says: "Pixago's streaming services are the best available. As well as being simple to use they give you a high degree of control over your media - including being able to track who is accessing it. If anyone wants to see just how easy it is, they can come to the Pixago website and try it, right now, for free." Anyone wishing to take advantage of the no-obligation, free trial of Broadcast Desk should visit http://www.pixago.com About Pixago Pixago is a digital archive and media distribution house aiming to help companies realise the potential for using digital media and making the most of media assets they already possess. Simply put, Pixago creates digital media archives from companies existing audio and video assets. The contents of these archives can be streamed from Pixago's industrial-strength servers across any current or future platform, such as broadband Internet, third generation (3G) mobile networks and interactive television. Pixago has structured its service to be as inclusive as possible, enabling companies and organisations of every size to take advantage of the medium. The nature of its service also makes it very easy for companies to control the distribution and the tracking of their digital media, whether as an internal resource available over the Internet or a new revenue stream. For many companies, the cost and complexity involved in digitising, encoding and managing media assets are major barriers to streaming digital media on their websites and extranet systems. Pixago's service side-steps these infrastructure issues by hosting the digital content on its media servers, allowing media clips to be streamed directly to the end-user's system. These appear to the user as if they were directly accessed from the original website.
