Qstream Taps VBrick to Stream Live Sporting Events Over the Internet to Fans Across Europe

The Unmatched Flexibility and Scalability of VBrick's VBoss Is Key to Expanding Audience Reach and Revenue

WALLINGFORD, CT--(Marketwire - November 4, 2009) - VBrick today announced that Dutch video production and distribution company Qstream has chosen VBrick's award-winning, end-to-end online streaming service, VBoss, to deliver professional quality live sports content to tens of thousands of European fans eager to watch on their computers or televisions. VBoss' turnkey online video distribution solution and virtually unlimited scalability has helped Qstream expand its customer reach beyond the Netherlands to all of Europe.

Qstream has been a top broadcaster of live sporting events since its founding in 2003. Owners of sporting and other live events engage Qstream to manage the live video/audio streaming and the platform, from which it will be viewed by consumers. With an online "pay-per-view" payment system integrated into VBoss, Qstream can offer its customers a complete, broadcast-ready experience. Already, Qstream is gearing up to air its next ultimate fighting event, scheduled for Nov. 29, 2009.

"We were pleased at how quickly we were up and running with VBoss," said Juraci van Mulier of Qstream. "Deploying the solution was as simple as plugging in the unit and logging into our VBoss account. From there we were immediately streaming content to customers and sharing the IP video stream with news outlets to maximize the audience reach and online ticket sales."

After realizing the numbers of viewers that watched the live event, van Mulier stated: "Local sports is no longer local, it's global!"

VBoss is a complete online streaming service that empowers anyone to deliver professional quality live and stored audio/video content to viewers via the public Internet. VBoss includes the award-winning VBrick Video Network Appliance, the VBoss Web-based media management portal, Internet streaming bandwidth, hosted online video storage, customizable video players, permission-based video syndication and complete remote management. Unlike other services, VBoss allows customers such as Qstream to broadcast from virtually anywhere, even from behind firewalls, while providing comprehensive and automatic configuration management.

"We're very excited to be the key technology partner powering Qstream's expansion as it provides high-quality sports content to viewers across Europe," said Paul Reeves, director of business development for VBrick in the United Kingdom. "We remain steadfastly committed to helping our global customers monetize their video content with the most innovative IP video streaming solutions available on the market."
