BroadLogic Joins Forces With StarBurst Software To Guarantee Simultaneous Content Distribution For Broadband IP Networks

StarBurst OmniCast enables customers to distribute content to thousands of remote receivers at speeds in excess of 40 Mbps

MILPITAS, CA., Jan. 18, 2000—BroadLogic, Inc., a leading provider of broadband networking equipment, and StarBurst Software, the leader in developing e-business content distribution solutions, today announced an alliance that will facilitate the simultaneous distribution of large data, video and audio files and other content to multiple remote receivers across any broadband IP network. The integration of StarBurst's OmniCast™ software with BroadLogic Satellite Express™ 2030 PCI Satellite Receivers will provide corporations, satellite service providers and content providers with the high-speed content distribution they need to develop broadband-networked multimedia broadcast and interactive services.

Bundling StarBurst OmniCast with BroadLogic's Satellite Express will enable customers to simultaneously distribute IP data, video on demand (VOD), Web content, digital audio, multimedia and software at speeds in excess of 40 Mbps. By eliminating the need for multiple time-consuming, point-to-point transmission sessions, the combined solution will make it possible for enterprises, broadcasters, Internet Service Providers and .com portals to efficiently distribute content daily or weekly to thousands of distributed receivers without taxing their networks.

"In today's information-intense environment, reliably distributing content to corporate networks and PCs is business-critical," said Toby Farrand, president and chief executive officer of BroadLogic. "This agreement will give our customers a practical means of moving data of all kinds across broadband networks."

StarBurst OmniCast is a comprehensive content management and distribution system that provides guaranteed, one-to-many distribution of multi-platform content to remote sites. It is used by nearly 200,000 enterprise and Internet-based receiving devices around the world.

BroadLogic's Satellite Express 2030 is a satellite to PCI receiver designed for DVB compliant IP satellite networks. The 2030 is capable of delivering 60Mbps, or a full 54MHz transponder, to the PCI bus in a single stream (PID) or a variety of audio, video, and data streams simultaneously. This provides flexibility for networks delivering either large amounts of data (web replication) or several services on individually encrypted streams.

"Our alliance with BroadLogic provides customers with a complete end-to-end content distribution solution for broadband IP networks," said president and CEO of StarBurst Software, Harland LaVigne. "By bundling StarBurst OmniCast with Satellite Express, StarBurst will meet increased demand for reliable and efficient distribution of complex broadband information while offering customers the combined experience and strength of two industry-leading companies."
