PRINCETON, N.J. -- March 27, 2013 -- Triveni Digital today announced its collaboration with Xstream to bring video streaming services to the North American broadcast market. The two companies plan to work together to create custom tools and applications particularly suited for use by local broadcasters who want to enhance the options for consumers to access and view their content through Internet streaming.

Triveni Digital indicated that the tools and technologies offered by Xstream are a perfect fit for its broader architectural initiative aimed at enhancing the services offered by local broadcasters.

"We believe that streaming of video content is an important method of distribution for local broadcasters, but these content providers can better exploit their infrastructure and content advantages to create a superior offering. Rather than reinvent the wheel for core video streaming tools and services, we have elected to work with a leader in the category and to extend their technologies into the broadcast environment. We think this joint effort allows us to bring the optimal solution to the broadcast market," said Mark Simpson, president and CEO of Triveni Digital.

The collaboration brings tools that can be deployed immediately by broadcasters for enhanced revenues, and planned extensions that will take advantage of other key initiatives that Triveni will be announcing, including the Open MediaHub, GuideBuilder(R) Plus, and the Avisor" local news viewing system.
