Video Platform That Enables Instant User Sharing Impresses Editors Evaluating Social Networking Products

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - November 24, 2009) - Dyyno, the Web platform for instant sharing of visual information, today announced it has been named a finalist for the 2009 Emerging Technology Awards from the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal. Dyyno was chosen as a finalist in the Social Networking category after a comprehensive evaluation of local companies and technologies by the publication's editors. The Business Journal will announce the winner at an event on December 3rd at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View.

Publicly launched just this past August, Dyyno's rich media solution and management platform enables individuals, enterprises and communities to share video, audio and applications instantly with just one click of a button. Powered by patent-pending Hybrid Reliable Streaming (HyReS™) technology, Dyyno supports thousands of concurrent streams and tens of thousands of concurrent viewers. Dyyno solutions easily deploy without IT expertise or provisioning, and because of its unique peer-to-peer model, Dyyno offers an extremely disruptive cost structure at least 10 times less than traditional high-quality video distribution solutions.

"We're honored to have been recognized by the editors at the Silicon Valley Business Journal as a top social networking platform," said Raj Jaswa, CEO, president and chairman of Dyyno. "With our Dyyno Personal and Business Channels, individuals and businesses can easily share meetings, presentations, events or video webcasts instantly through a personalized web address. Webcasters can chat with their viewers live, post updates to their social networks like Facebook and Twitter, and record the webcasts for future replay. Our goal is to enable ubiquitous usage of video, and this acknowledgement by such a well-respected publication helps validate what we're doing."

The Emerging Technology Awards are now in their fourth year. To choose finalists for the award, the Business Journal takes nominations from outside sources and also does its own research to find what it considers to be ground-breaking and potentially disruptive technology. Criteria includes the potential viability of the companies, the newness and usefulness of the technology, and the "wow" factor that clearly sets a company and its solutions apart from the crowd.

Dyyno's executive team, including CEO Raj Jaswa, will attend the awards dinner on December 3rd, and will demonstrate its breakthrough video distribution platform for attendees at the event.
