Chyron Corp., a provider of high-end broadcast technology, plans to launch CoreStream, a new streaming media solution, company reps said today at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) trade show in Las Vegas.
CoreStream is the first-ever streaming media deployment system to incorporate the strengths of multiple provider networks through a “sophisticated implementation” of performance-based network selection and seamless fail-over capability, according to Chyron CEO Roger Henderson. Coupled with “robust” information gathering and reporting, CoreStream ensures content can be delivered and managed according to the highest possible professional standards, “even on the Internet,” he added.
CoreStream supports such media formats as QuickTime, Real Player, and Windows Media. It’s compatible with the Mac and PC platforms, as well as both Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers.
“Chyron recognized a need for a new breed of internet-oriented content delivery tools,” Henderson said in a statement. “Our clients are professionals. They need the assurance that their content reliably reaches their audience, and that their media is delivered at the highest available level of quality.”
Based on patent pending technology, CoreStream chooses the best server for any given audience member from a pool of hosting providers, guaranteeing that each audience member is “accessing the highest quality stream,” he said.
