NaviSite Will Provide Streaming for Digital Distribution and Music

NaviSite Inc. will provide streaming media services at the first European-based Digital Distribution and Music Industry (DDMI) conference. The two-day international event will address the implications of digital distribution, MP3 and the Internet on the music industry.

NaviSite will provide production, encoding and on-demand delivery services for the conference. Included will be panel sessions presented by more than 70 speakers from companies such as LiquidAudio, CDNOW Inc., and Listen.com, that will discuss everything from business strategies to music communities.

The conference's primary focus is harnessing Internet technologies for profit and savings, along with existing barriers and future developments. In addition to providing managed streaming media services, NaviSite's director of business development for the Streaming Media Division, Randy Levine, will participate in the New Media Players panel. The session will explore the pressure on TV, radio and music publications to jump onto the Internet and become content providers of the future.

"As a leading force in the managed streaming media services market, we are now taking our services a step further by extending them to the international market," Levine said. "DDMI is the perfect venue for doing this because it brings together some of the biggest digital distribution and music industry players in the world."
