Called VDOLive 2.0, this new product suite includes an advanced version of VDOnet's video technology and offers a broad array of features for broadcasters and media, multimedia Web developers, and corporations that want to use video to enhance the effectiveness of their Internet or Intranet communications.

"The number of visitors to our site jumped from 50,000 to 500,000 in the first month after we installed VDOLive," said Drew Cummings, president of Cummings Multimedia Entertainment, who recently launched the Internet's first digital video entertainment network with the one-hour dramatic television movie Casino (

"We've always understood that video is the most powerful way to communicate on the Net," said Asaf Mohr, VDOnet's president and CEO. "But we have been very pleased to learn from our customers the dramatic impact that video is having on their sites."

It is being viewed today by more than 1.5 million Web users.

Preview Vacations ( uses VDOLive to showcase videos of travel destinations on its award-winning travel site: "VDOLive is an excellent way to reach our multimedia savvy customers," said Chris Howard, senior producer, Interactive Media, Preview Vacations.

PBS ONLINE ( uses VDOLive to provide Web visitors full length public television programs, college telecourses, and video clips in PBS's new online store, shopPBS. "We've been absolutely delighted with the response VDOLive has brought to PBS ONLINE," said John Hollar, executive vice president of PBS Learning Ventures.

"Every week, tens of thousands of Web surfers enjoy more time perusing our site's 25,000 pages because of the rich features VDOLive offers. We see this technology as an important part of our future." Today, many other kinds of video on the Net are made possible by VDOLive, including advertising and promotion, corporate product information and other corporate communications (both internally through Intranet use and externally by using the Internet), many forms of entertainment and information, and a variety of others including business and personal video communications.
