NETWORK APPLIANCE JOINS ISMA TO ADVANCE OPEN STANDARDS FOR INTERNET STREAMING MEDIA.
Network Appliance will collaborate with other ISMA members, including industry experts in content management, distribution, infrastructure, and rich media creation, to promote open standards such as ISMA 1.0, a specification designed to accelerate adoption of IETF and MPEG-4 standards for Internet streaming.
"Since its inception, Network Appliance has championed open standards, giving customers interoperability with best of breed solutions," said Amit Pandey, senior director of marketing for the content delivery business unit, Network Appliance. "Network Appliance has furthered this commitment and added momentum to ISMA's progress by contributing its streaming and data management expertise to better enable global enterprises to deploy and benefit from powerful streaming applications."
"The open-standards approach of ISMA is intended to reduce costs for streaming media customers by allowing them to select solutions from multiple vendors and better tailor system purchases to fit their budgets and needs," said Tom Jacobs, president, ISMA. "ISMA values the industry leadership, expertise in open standards, and vision Network Appliance brings as a new member, and is confident the company will undoubtedly boost the development and adoption of ISMA specifications."
Network Appliance will launch its new membership by joining other ISMA participants at the alliance's first annual meeting on February 5 in New York to demonstrate interoperability among the ISMA member solutions. [sections]
