IRVINE, Calif. and NEW YORK, Jan 17, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- VitalStream, the world leader in video streaming, and On2 Technologies, Inc. (ONT), the premiere developer of Flash 8 video encoding tools, are bringing the 2006 Sundance Online Film Festival to the Internet in high-quality, Flash 8 video.

DEEPBLU Studios, the creative group behind the world-renowned showcase for independent filmmakers, is leveraging VitalStream's powerful content delivery network (CDN) optimized for Flash 8 video delivery and On2 Technologies' Flash 8 video encoding tools to enhance the official Web site for the event, On2's product, On2 Flix Pro, enables creation and delivery of Flash 8 video content for a high-quality, seamless online experience for attendees.

"Movie-goers want to be immersed in the films they see in a theater without thinking about how the film will be projected or delivered," said Amye Osti, creative director of DEEPBLU Studios. "Flash 8 video enables us to create the same experience for visitors to the Sundance Online Film Festival, offering high quality, evocative videos for a true Sundance experience."

]Earlier this year, VitalStream and On2 Technologies partnered to create a single-source solution to create and deliver pristine quality digital media content with Macromedia Flash 8 video, which is quickly emerging as the highest-quality format for streaming over IP. DEEPBLU will use On2 Flix Pro to create the video content, and VitalStream's CDN to deliver high-quality Flash 8 video to the hundreds of thousands of people who will visit the 2006 Sundance Online Film Festival.

"Research shows more people are going online to view events like the Sundance Film Festival, supporting a need for advanced content delivery services," said Jack Waterman, chief executive officer of VitalStream. "VitalStream's leading video streaming services, supported by Flash 8 and combined with On2's video encoding, improve entertainment to attract and engage online audiences."

"The Sundance Online Film Festival is the latest in the list of highly visible entities who are realizing the endless creative possibilities with Flash 8 video," said Eric Ameres, chief technical officer and executive vice president of software development for On2 Technologies. "On2 Flix Pro is rapidly becoming the tool-of-choice for Flash developers and digital media designers, and coupled with powerful content distribution networks from VitalStream, we're making Flash 8 video an increasingly viable, hotly desired medium for creating and delivering content."
