has announced its new QT Streaming Server site called
1010holdings provides services to Internet based business models. By providing a one host solution of services their client partners can focus on developing their business model, Jim Greer of 1010Holdings told MacCentral.
By implementing reliable, proven software into the “Applecast Delivery System” on Mac OS X Servers located around the globe, Applecast is able to stream digital video and audio files, data, graphics and offer Video On Demand (VOD) services, Greer said. The Applecast Delivery System will also offer “LiveInvite” Webcasting for meetings, new product rollouts, online education and a host of other applications where reliable streaming media is the solution, he added.
The purpose of Applecast.com is to provide a reliable, affordable method of delivery of high-quality streaming media to 1010Holding clients, Greer said. As customers, 1010Holdings is targeting independent filmmakers as well as the large production houses with their ability to store and deliver film clips using Apple’s QuickTime technology.
“No longer will you have long frustrating searches for that just right shot,” Greer said. “Just enter a few key word search terms and look at a low-res sample movie until you find that shot you need. As a client you then download that clip in full D1 quality to your Final Cut Pro editing system or any other QuickTime-based system.”
Applecast also provides live streaming video for business clients who may want to broadcast board meetings, introduce new products, hold sales meetings or training sessions to their remote associates. QuickTime Streaming technology provides 1010Holdings the tools needed to quickly and efficiently deliver streaming media on demand, Greer said.
“We use Macs for stability and reliability,” Greer said. “Plus, QuickTime offers cross-platform usability while still providing the highest quality. Our first Mac OS X server was up and running in less than 30 minutes after a quick plug-in installation. There’s no frustration or guesswork with Apple technology; it just works. Our chief tech who is a network person in his other full time job says Mac OS X is like good eye drops, because he can see so clearly now.”
