Launch: Europe.Streamingmedia.com Tuesday 10 July 2001 PDF Print London, UK (July 09, 2001) – Streamingmedia.com announces the launch of the European website. Streamingmedia.com (US) has been the #1 web-based resource for streaming media insiders (and those who wish to break into the business) for the last three years. Due to the increase in European streaming activity, a European focused site has been spun off to cater for the needs of this diverse demographic. The portal is to provide both relevant and targeted editorial content for the b2b arena, and a community-building focal point for this fledgling industry. “The future of the streaming media industry in Europe has never been so positive,” said Ghanum Taylor, VP Europe, Streaming Media, “we see Europe as a leader and innovator for our industry. So it only makes sense for us to service it in the most complete way possible.” Taylor’s comments are backed up by research showing 50% of the companies in the FTSE 100 now employing webcasting, 80% of this is streaming investor relations. This compares to 30% of the Fortune 100 companies using video webcasting, according to UK-based Simplywebcast. Europe Streaming Media, built out of the successful US parent site (www.streamingmedia.com) will follow the high standards set in editorial integrity and quality of service. The site and weekly newsletter will comprehensively cover the European streaming landscape, from end user to service provider. Providing a mixture of daily news, features and market analysis there will finally be a voice for a hitherto unserviced section of the new media spectrum. The diversity seen across European jurisdictions has produced a multitude of variations in business practices. Europe Streaming Media will define and create a local industry community to reflect this diversity and variety. Europe.streamingmedia.com offers: · Up-to-the-minute news tracking this fast-paced industry. · The only European streaming email newsletter covering the space with approximately 10,000 subscribers. · Objective and in-depth reviews of the products and services. · Active global discussion lists. · A European specific Industry Directory – where streaming companies can market their products and services to thousands of daily readers. · A European specific Streaming Media Jobs Board. Europe.streamingmedia.com will add a crucial arm to streaming media’s diversified media tripod. Our tripod approach will bring together the best of the streaming media Europe convention, our online commitment and our soon to be European print offering. “We are committing ourselves to the industry and business users alike, so they can have education and information across as many mediums as they so desire,” continued Taylor, “ we want this industry to grow and we want everyone to exploit all the avenues that streaming media can offer”.
