Jan 14, 2005


Onstream Media Corporation, a business services provider of video and rich media communication, webcasting, and DAM services formerly known as Visual Data Corporation, and North Plains Systems Corp., (NPS), a provider of DAM solutions, has announced that Onstream Media Corporation will license NPS's TeleScope Application Platform and when integrated will provide a suite of hosted DAM services.

Onstream Media will integrate North Plains' TeleScope Application Platform into its digital asset management services platform used by motion picture studios, broadcast and post-production facilities, media and entertainment, financial services, government, healthcare, and education to better manage their digital rich media. The solution is designed to enable users to encode, log, index, store, collaborate, transcode, retrieve, and distribute rich media libraries of nearly unlimited size via an IP-based global network. It will be suitable for individual creators, workgroups, and enterprise class organizations and is available on a monthly subscription basis. Companies will have the option of deploying TeleScope Enterprise as a hosted service to manage their media archives, video libraries, and eLearning initiatives on a local, national, or global basis.

Onstream Media has contracted with Science Applications International Corporation ("SAIC"), an IT security firm, to provide security, availability, and reliability to the Onstream Media Network. Security offerings will include advanced user authentication, permissible user controls, digital rights management, firewalls, VPNs, intrusion detection, and network monitoring to support the most demanding customer requirements. The agreement also enables North Plains to offer the Onstream Media ASP service to its existing clients.
