Dyyno Launches Live, Rich Media Platform That Enables Users to Instantly Share HD Video, Audio and Applications for 10 Times Less Cost

Cisco WebEx Users and Global Gaming Communities Among Early Adopters of Disruptive Software-as-a-Service Video Distribution System

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) - Dyyno, the Web platform for instant sharing of visual information, today announced the launch of the Dyyno™ rich media publishing and management platform that enables individuals, small and medium businesses (SMBs), communities, and enterprises to share video, audio and applications instantly with just one click of a button. Featuring a disruptive cost structure for high-quality video distribution and global scalability, Dyyno's software-as-a-service (SaaS) turnkey solution supports worldwide Web audiences serving thousands of concurrent streams for tens of thousands of concurrent viewers -- without any IT expertise or provisioning, and for at least 10 times less cost than traditional solutions.

Backed by a world-class technical team that includes key researchers from Stanford University Multimedia Labs who are experts in patent-pending video and networking technology, Dyyno has already proven its solution in the most demanding environments, including gaming portals and enterprise collaboration. Xfire, the live video game broadcasting portal, uses the Dyyno platform to broadcast more than 200,000 sessions per month (averaging 20 minutes per session) and has more than a million views monthly.

Besides Xfire, Dyyno has signed commercial deals with five other major gaming portals, including Outspark. Dyyno has also signed an agreement with Cisco-WebEx to integrate the Dyyno platform inside WebEx as an easy-to-install plug-in that can deliver a seamless, high-quality rich media and video experience during Web conferences.

"With Dyyno's disruptive cost structure for high-quality, reliable video distribution, we are enabling ubiquitous use of video for business and entertainment," said Raj Jaswa, CEO, president and chairman of Dyyno. "Unlike live broadcasting portals, which are plagued by expensive, IT-intensive client-server distribution models and don't offer the ability to brand or personalize the viewing experience, Dyyno provides a simple and affordable solution that allows anyone to share rich media instantly with an audience of 1, 10 or 10,000 viewers and to fully customize the experience for their community."

"Dyyno's breakthrough technology allows players across the Outspark virtual playground to broadcast their gaming sessions live to the world. It also allows users to watch friends and rivals play in real time, without disrupting their game experience," said Susan Choe, CEO at Outspark. "Within minutes, Outspark gamers can install Dyyno and, with one click of a hot key, broadcast and show off their skills to anyone online. This capability will accelerate the growth of our community, which is now approaching five million members."

Dyyno's Simple, Turnkey Solution: One Click to Broadcast, One Click to View

Individuals or small businesses that want to instantly broadcast live videos, camcorder streams, video games, Flash Media, spreadsheets, presentations, or any other rich media content that resides on their desktop can easily get set up with a Dyyno Personal Channel or Dyyno Business Channel within a matter of minutes. For larger communities that want to set up their own branded Dyyno Broadcast Station, deployments take only a few days. Enterprises that want to share rich media and videos at low cost and high quality can leverage Dyyno Video for WebEx, a plug-in that installs in minutes.

Once Dyyno is installed, users only need to "drag the 'd'" (the Dyyno icon) onto the desktop application or stream they wish to broadcast, and then click "share" to instantly share their visual experience with their community on a public or private basis. Dyyno viewers can become part of the community and instantly see everything the broadcaster chooses to share from his or her desktop by clicking on the Dyyno broadcaster's unique URL.

The Dyyno video-sharing platform is powered by Dyyno's Hybrid Reliable Streaming (HyReS™) technology, a proprietary, patent-pending, hybrid streaming solution that provides quality of service (QoS), targeted service-level agreement (SLA) levels, and high scalability at dramatically low cost and high efficiency. In addition to the broadcasting and viewing capabilities, the Dyyno SaaS platform supports other key capabilities including real-time stream management and directory services to generate live, branded community channel guides and channels from millions of distinct streams; three distribution modes: live mode, scheduled replay, and video on demand (VOD); usage reports and a services control center that give the customer a view of who is using the platform at any given time; and the ability to control the streams.

Dyyno Offerings for Business, Community and Personal Interests

The Dyyno platform serves businesses (both enterprises and SMBs), online communities (such as gaming, religious and education), and individuals who want or need to instantly share video, audio, text, and other rich media applications in a customizable, manageable way to engage and grow their audience or communities.

Unlike the rest of the industry, which charges for gigabytes of data transferred, Dyyno's pricing is based on concurrent viewers, which dovetails nicely with advertising models. Dyyno's simple and affordable product line consists of:

--  Dyyno Personal Channel - $10/month for 1 channel with 10 concurrent
    viewers, and no limit on quality, hours or number of sessions
    
--  Dyyno Business Channel - $100/month for 10 channels with up to 100
    concurrent viewers, in any combination
    
--  Dyyno Broadcast Station - $10,000 license fee for integration plus
    advertising sharing or bandwidth charge and an annual maintenance fee;
    special not-for-profit pricing for religious and educational organizations
    of $1,000/month for 100 channels with 1000 concurrent viewers, in any
    combination
    
--  Dyyno Video for WebEx - $100/month for WebEx Meeting Center,
    $200/month for WebEx Training Center, and $500/month for WebEx Event Center
