ICAST AND PICTURETEL FORM VIDEOCONFERENCING PARTNERSHIP

By CBR Staff Writer

Los Gatos, California based video broadcast company Icast Corp has partnered with videoconferencing outfit, PictureTel Corp, to integrate its Corporate/Campus Television (C:TV) multicast system into PictureTel’s interactive multipoint videoconferencing products. The move will enable users to have a combination of one-to-many IP broadcast technology with real-time interactivity. Icast’s C:TV multicast system is aimed at corporate and campus television networks. It has five different components: Icast Broadcaster, a software-only system for broadcasting live real- time video, voice and text streams on existing TCP/IP network; Icast Viewer & Guide, which provides a real time directory and display of real-time video, voice and text streams; Icast Meter for monitoring network bandwidth usage; Icast Relay, which allows access to voice, video and text programs over non-multicast- enabled networks and desktop PCs; and Icast Recorder for recording live streams broadcast on the network and stores them on a remote server for replay on demand or scheduled re- broadcasts.
