RALEIGH, NC – January 13, 2010 – Inlet Technologies, the leader in innovative solutions for digital media preparation, announced today that AEG Digital Media has selected Inlet’s SpinnakerTM technology to power high-quality streaming of premium media and entertainment events from around the world.

Inlet’s SpinnakerTM family of live streaming solutions delivers broadcast-quality streams over the Internet to multiple screens and devices.

Spinnaker creates a more interactive and personal online video experience for consumers, backed by exceptional video quality with DVR-like capabilities, multiple camera angles, embedded captions and URLs, and no stuttering, buffering, or other interruptions.
With Spinnaker as a critical element of their technology infrastructure, AEG Digital Media has already facilitated and managed some of the largest online live events of the previous year, including: 2010 People’s Choice Awards; the first Hollywood Bowl show broadcast live on the Internet, the Los Angeles Philharmonic “¡Bienvenido Gustavo!� concert; Farm Aid 2009; Cirque Du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte’s One Drop Foundation Poetic Social Mission event, featuring a live stream from the International Space Station; MTV Latin VMAs; and Alicia Keys’ recent full-length concert on Google’s YouTube live music channel.
“The level of quality produced with Inlet’s Spinnaker supporting our technology backbone has helped accelerate our discussions with major broadcasters and premium content sites interested in replicating the same success and quality we’ve achieved with other events,� said John Petrocelli, vice president of business development and sales, AEG Digital Media.

“Our success working with AEG Digital Media provides a great opportunity to expand our expertise specifically in the entertainment-related market,� said Michael Barros, senior vice president of worldwide sales for Inlet Technologies. “The experts at AEG have been perfecting their digital processes for almost ten years now. The ease with which they were able to seamlessly integrate Spinnaker into their workflow is a testament to how simple and functional the product is to work with.�

With plans to deploy Spinnaker units to stream from the red carpet and behind the scenes at upcoming award shows and other events such as the TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference, as well as streaming content to other devices such as the Apple® iPhone™ and iPod® Touch®, AEG Digital Media is well-positioned to deliver the highest quality content the industry has seen in ten years of live streaming. “We look forward to continue working with Inlet to bring premium media and entertainment events to the global market while ensuring the best quality of experience for viewers,� said Petrocelli.
