Interoute offers Apple’s QuickTime 7, announces global deployment of QuickTime Streaming Server

Interoute, owner and operator of the most advanced and densely connected voice and data network today announced full support for Apple’s QuickTime 7, including a global deployment of the QuickTime Streaming Server to enable the distribution of stunning, and highly scalable, digital content.

“We are delighted to offer QuickTime 7 to our customers,” said James Kinsella, Interoute’s Executive Chairman in the press release. “The overall quality of the new H.264/AVC Video in QuickTime 7 is tremendous and made this a very easy choice. We see a huge opportunity with QuickTime 7 providing the foundation for us to deliver standards-based MPEG-4 and 3G content to our customers.”

“With over a billion copies of QuickTime downloaded it’s clear that high quality, standards-based streaming is what companies want to offer their customers around the world,” said Frank Casanova, Apple’s senior director, Mac OS X Audio & Video in the press release. “We’re thrilled Interoute will utilize the superb H.264-enabled video capabilities of QuickTime 7 and the scalability of QuickTime Streaming Server to change the way users experience video on their computers and mobile phones.”

This month sees Interoute launch the latest version of their Media Manager platform. Media Manager 2.1 is an industrial strength media streaming and delivery platform for web, mobile and IPTV which uses QuickTime 7, QuickTime Streaming Server and the Xserve G5 server to reliably deliver large scale, high quality, content.

Interoute recently announced a doubling of business in the U.S. so far in 2005. Interoute is riding the wave of international expansion of U.S. based carriers, ISPs, resellers and enterprises as they expand into new markets, especially Europe, Eastern Europe and beyond. Evidence of this growth is the company’s recent cooperation and work with San Francisco-based Yipes Enterprise Services Inc., helping to bring scalable Ethernet service throughout Europe to Yipes’ customers, including top law firms, financial services giants and technology companies.

Interoute owns and operates Europe’s most advanced and densely connected voice and data network. It delivers intelligent, customer-controlled network services to a diverse range of businesses including carriers, mobile operators, service providers, enterprise customers and government departments. Unencumbered by debt, and with established operations throughout mainland Europe and North America, Interoute also owns and operates dense city networks throughout Europe’s major business centres.
