ViewCast Corp., a manufacturer of products that capture, encode, and stream live and on-demand digital media content over the Internet and mobile networks, signed an agreement to join the Polycom ARENA partner program. Polycom, a producer of unified collaboration communication systems, began the ARENA program to allow software application providers, hardware device manufacturers, and conferencing solution providers to integrate their products with Polycom's unified collaboration platform to create new applications.
As a result, ViewCast integrated its Niagara Pro rack-mount streaming encoder systems and the Niagara GoStream portable systems with Polycom's platform to allow advanced streaming capabilities. The integration provides concurrent streaming and archiving in multiple formats such as Windows Media, Flash, Mpeg-4/H.264, or Real Media; and user controls for branding, resolution customization, and simultaneous multiple sessions on a single ViewCast encoder.
"Customers in the enterprise, government, and educational markets worldwide are investing in solutions that improve productivity, accelerate decision making, and lower costs, and through our involvement in the Polycom ARENA program, we are delivering integrated solutions that address these customer needs," said Gary Klembara, ViewCast senior vice president of sales. "The ARENA partnership with Polycom augments our ability to serve new and existing enterprise customers and substantially extends our marketing reach and sales potential through the Polycom global distribution network."
