Streamlogics Enhances Reliability of Live Webcasts

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 17, 2006) -

Newly launched Level 4 Redundancy system improves reliability of webcast events

Streamlogics, a leading provider of webcasting applications and services, today announced the release of its Level 4 redundancy system for live audio and video webcasts. Level 4 seamlessly integrates redundancy and failover systems within hardware, network and application-based systems required for live webcasts, significantly increasing service reliability in comparison to industry standards.

Streamlogics webcasts a wide range of mission critical events, including earnings announcements, press releases, educational seminars, town hall meetings, and product launches. Level 4 now provides Streamlogics' customers with increased reliability and peace of mind.

Level 4 is comprised of the following components:

1) Encoder Redundancy: All event streams include a backup stream encoded on separate hardware, providing protection against hardware or software failures at the encoder level. All primary streams are monitored using automated and manual processes that can identify a failure instantly and force viewers to migrate to the backup stream.

2) Signal Egress Redundancy: Streamlogics' event encoder bays are connected the content delivery network (CDN) via two separate and unique network connections, providing failover redundancy in the event of a failure on the primary network connection. Network connections are monitored using both automated software and manual processes. Once a signal egress signal has been identified, viewers will be instantaneously forced to the backup stream.

3) CDN Stream Redundancy: All streams are available from a primary and backup CDN. Each CDN is physically located in geographically distributed regions throughout North America. Streams are monitored using automated and manual processes that can identify a failure instantly and force viewers to migrate to the backup stream.

4) Platform Redundancy: Streamlogics protects against application-layer failures with an emergency platform control system. This system enables Streamlogics to force any change made in the infrastructure to all live viewers. Emergency platform controls are the failsafe component of the L4 system, allowing Streamlogics to automatically connect all viewers immediately to backup systems without audience intervention.

"Streamlogics has accumulated a wealth of knowledge from provisioning thousands of webcasts since 1999" said Dave Gascoine, Streamlogics' Vice President of Operations. "Level 4 was created by applying our experience to offer what we believe is the most reliable solution in the market today".
