Prodigy MSN Selects VitalStream to Deliver Video to Latin America's Online Community.

Gathers Valuable Data with VitalStream's Unique Reporting Tools to Best Serve Its Global Audience

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- VitalStream, Inc. (NASDAQ:VSTH), a leader in online content delivery and monetization, announced it has signed a contract to provide streaming media services to Prodigy MSN, a joint venture between Microsoft Mexico and Telmex.

Selected especially for the proven scalability of its high-bandwidth media delivery network and comprehensive reporting tools, VitalStream enables fast downloads of Prodigy MSN's (http://prodigy.msn.com) online, Spanish-language video and news content.

Prodigy MSN is Latin America's leading provider of email (Prodigy/MSN Hotmail), instant messaging (Windows Live Messenger en Prodigy/MSN) and blogging services (Windows Live Spaces en Prodigy/MSN).

VitalStream's MediaConsole[R], its workflow management toolset, integrates with all streaming formats. A 'media manager' feature offers real-time reporting tools that enable the service provider to track and analyze data on its videos, including precisely which users are accessing content and the duration of their viewing sessions. This data illustrates where an audience is concentrated and provides insight into visitors' viewing habits to give Prodigy MSN better intelligence on how to best deliver and monetize the audio and video it delivers.

To accelerate Prodigy MSN's application development, VitalStream will provide its library of streaming software and tools, empowering the site's developers to quickly and easily implement their online media streaming projects.

"With our user-base growing aggressively, we see online video as the best way to attract visitors and keep them on our Web pages," said Miguel Alegre, Prodigy MSN's editor-in-chief. "VitalStream has a proven track record in providing excellent customer care. The company impressed us with its reliable, secure streaming services, enabling Prodigy/MSN to deliver and monetize rich, attractive, interesting media content to the 20 million Internet users in Mexico."

"As a leading service provider, Prodigy MSN is the ideal candidate for high-quality content delivery and we're thrilled to be selected as its streaming media provider," said Jack Waterman, VitalStream's CEO. "Over 90 percent of Prodigy MSN's audience is outside of the United States, which is testament to the fact that VitalStream is a top-choice content delivery network for organizations looking to successfully serve global audiences with online, on-demand content."
