DiStream Dives Below 1 Mbps


DiStream Inc. announced its “Movie xStream” streaming-video-on-demand service Wednesday.

The vendor claimed that Movie xStream is the first streaming-VOD service to deliver high-resolution video at a bit rate of less than 1 megabit per second.

“Movie xStream is the first to stay within the 1-mbps barrier while retaining high-quality full-screen video at high resolutions," DiStream CEO Royal J. O'Brien said in a prepared statement. “All you need is a broadband connection and a Movie xStream account to enjoy films and video right now."
