With No Hassles



Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from ViewCast Corporation

    DALLAS, April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Putting
 streaming video on a corporate Web site is now as easy as point-and-click with
 EZStream(SM), a complete streaming media service for businesses from ViewCast
 Online, a division of ViewCast Corporation (Nasdaq:   VCST), a leading provider
 of Internet and networked video solutions.
     EZStream will be demonstrated April 23-26 at NAB2001 in Las Vegas (Booth
 E2905 in the lower level of the Sands Exposition Hall), and will be available
 from the company's new video solutions portal www.viewcastonline.com on
 April 30.
     According to Jupiter Media Metrix, business use of streaming video is
 forecast to grow from $140 million to $2.8 billion by 2005.
     "The types of new tools, packaged products and end-to-end support offered
 by ViewCast Online are essential for businesses to take advantage of the
 benefits of Internet video and for the market to reach its potential," said
 John Caulfield, president of ViewCast Online Solutions.  "ViewCast Online
 makes Internet video easy for small to mid-size businesses that might not have
 the time, resources or necessary skill sets to incorporate this effective new
 communications medium into their web site."
     EZStream combines software and specially packaged services that enable
 businesses to capture, edit, encode, publish, host and deliver streaming
 video/rich media content on corporate Web sites.  With EZstream, communicating
 via video online is as easy as click, create and view.
     Prior to the introduction of EZStream, getting video on the Internet
 involved a multitude of separate steps -- everything from capturing, encoding,
 and editing video to setting up streaming servers, intricate Web site coding
 and negotiating for favorable bandwidth rates.  EZStream from ViewCast Online
 automates the entire process into a single, point-and-click procedure
 performed directly from the company's web site (www.viewcastonline.com).
     EZStream processes the video and publishes it to ViewCast Online's high-
 performance content delivery network.  The business need only paste a provided
 link onto its Web site for any visitor to view.  EZStream also enables
 businesses to click-and-create content from scratch and then publish their
 content.
     Managing accounts is equally simple.  Business clients can change or renew
 hosting rate plans, change account profiles and set up or change e-mail
 notification flags for traffic and usage metrics information and alerts.
     "Businesses have known ViewCast for streaming video expertise and
 streaming capture cards from Osprey Video," said Caulfield.  "Now businesses
 can come to ViewCast for a complete end-to-end streaming solution -- from
 hardware to software, and services."
     ViewCast products also appear in the Hitachi (Booth L6414), Microsoft
 (Booth I5921) and RealNetworks (Booth I6726) booths at NAB2001.  The company
 will be giving away popular Osprey-210 audio/video capture cards at all
 locations.  In addition, ViewCast will hold a drawing during the show for a
 Niagara Streaming System at the ViewCast booth.
