Sunnyvale, CA, June 2011 --- NCast, an innovative leader in presentation capture and IP streaming, is proud to announce the unveiling of the world's first open-standard presentation content management system.
NCast's Presentation Production Server is the first content streaming product that is truly open-standard, completely changing the rules of modern video, audio and graphics presentation.
NCast's Presentation Production Server offers a completely open-standard architecture, allowing for easy custom modifications, collaboration with industry partners and enhancements by third parties. Feature-rich and robust, the Presentation Production Server is fully compatible with industry-wide learning management systems (LMS) like Sakai and Blackboard.
The Presentation Production Server is available in two different configurations. It can be utilized as a virtual, web-based, cloud hosted Service or, for users who wish to host their own content, the product may be purchased as a hardware server. Both options offer high-definition, H.264 compliant video, superior audio quality, and seamless integration with industry class management tools and workflows.
A Presentation Portal for administrators and end-users is included with the Server. Unlike other video portals, it supports both video and graphics presentations, making it ideal for content delivery. An advanced Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system extracts text from all sources, even graphics, creating a comprehensive, searchable index. Closed Captioning support is integrated for the hearing impaired.

The Cloud Edition of the Presentation Production Server is a service and integrated platform, perfect for educational institutions and other organizations wishing to begin presenting their content without investing significant overhead into equipment or support staff. Fully integrated with Amazon's EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) service, PPS provides a true turnkey, cloud-based solution, eliminating issues of storage space, broadcast bandwidth, energy costs, and dedicated IT staff.
The Presentation Production Server seamlessly integrates with NCast encoders to provide the highest level of video and audio quality. NCast encoders feature dual capture, high-definition inputs, full-frame rate recording, and a variety of powerful monitoring tools to deliver constant, automated feedback during use.
Both products are available through authorized NCast Resellers. Visit www.ncast.com for more information. And visit NCast at booth #1482 at the InfoComm Convention in Orlando, June 15-17, 2011.
