Xiran Receives AIM Recognition for STM-1000 Streaming Media Server

4/15/2003 - Xiran, a division of SimpleTech focused on developing content delivery acceleration solutions, announced that it was awarded one of the first NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Awards for Innovation in Media (AIM), an annual technology awards program launched for the first time at NAB2003. As one of the five companies receiving the highest number of attendee votes in the Content Delivery category, Xiran received AIM recognition for its STM-1000 streaming media server on Wednesday, April 9 at the NAB Technology Luncheon held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"The NAB extends its sincere congratulations to the 2003 AIM winners," said NAB President and CEO Edward O. Fritts. "The NAB Exhibition is the leading source of new product announcements in the global broadcast technology marketplace. Given that hundreds of new products are launched at NAB each year, this recognition is truly an honor. We're thankful for all of the attendees who took the time to recognize the companies who are setting the pace in electronic media technology."

The top five products within each of the Content Creation, Content Management, and Content Delivery categories received recognition with a 2003 AIM. Three of these products will receive additional recognition when a judging panel composed of key industry editors reviews the AIM-winning technologies to select an overall winner within each product category. The 2003 Editors' Choice Award winners will be announced on Thursday, April 17.

"This award celebrates ground-breaking products that display a significant level of achievement by exceeding expectations for boosting efficiency, increasing user flexibility and creativity, and lowering cost. To me, this spells DirectPath," said Tom Beaver, General Manager and Senior Vice President of Xiran.

The DirectPath STM-1000 features the lowest cost per delivered stream for broadband content delivery applications. Available for use as origin servers that operate as a central network hub for content delivery, or as content delivery gateways to manage content delivery at the edge of the network, the STM-1000 incorporates Xiran's DirectPath content delivery acceleration technology to increase throughput by up to 10X for delivering rich media streams while reducing the cost of ownership for streaming platforms by more than 75 percent.
