Edgestreme Systems Introduces Streaming Media Server

New Avid subsidiary Edgestreme Systems (www.edgestreme.com) announced its first product, the Edgestreme Cluster, a turnkey streaming media server.

Edgestreme's servers have already been deployed by NextVenue and by Streaming Media Corp., a new streaming services company.

The servers have plug-and-play ability with a management interface for access to all servers on a network. "Existing Internet server architectures, no matter how they are `enhanced,' were not architected to meet the demands of high-bandwidth content," said Mike Rockwell, general manager of Edgestreme Systems. "Our Edgestreme Cluster offers high performance in a small footprint that allows companies to get up-and-streaming quickly."

The Edgestreme Cluster is shipping now with an entry-level system (providing 270 Mbps bandwidth and 80 gigabytes of mirrored storage) starting at $87,000 USMSRP.

It supports Windows NT and Windows Media but not Real. Real 7 support is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2000.
