1 The Difference is in the Delivery Highly-Efficient, Cost-effective, Broadcast over the Internet

2 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Dedicated to Broadcasters ?Founded by former broadcasters, technologists and entrepreneurs ?Dedicated to making profitable Internet broadcast business models ?Created the extra tools require to make broadcasters successful

3 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 The Difference is in the Delivery Abacast patented technology greatly improves the delivery of one-to-many real-time streaming media.

4 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Is your streaming network Abacast Enabled? An Abacast Enabled stream allows you to serve … higher quality media to more users with less hassle for less money! QualityUsers Cost $

5 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Client-Server Application adsp:// Media Server Media Player Plain Streaming Abacast Enabled Streaming Encoder

6 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Client Download Process ?Fast and Easy Download and Installation (~900KBytes) ?Customizable to Broadcaster ?White label ready ?Multilanguage Support ?API for Custom Applications

7 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Proven Network Technology ?Six (6) years in operation ?38,461,126 plug-in downloads (as of September 1st, 2006) ?Better than expected network efficiency ?~10 million end-user hours per month ?~3.6 million uniques per month ?Webcast Metrics Top Stations ?Windows Media Guide Featured Stations

8 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Unicast Streaming $$$

9 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 How Abacast Works $

10 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 How Abacast Works ?Abacast server acquires source stream

11 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 How Abacast Works ?The first user connects to the Abacast server

12 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 How Abacast Works ?Abacast server monitors clients and scores the quality of their connection and their ability to distribute stream to other users in real-time

13 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 How Abacast Works $ ?New clients connect to Abacast server and are directed to a viable distributing client, if possible

14 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 How Abacast Works $ ?If no distributing clients are available then new client becomes directly connected (L1)

15 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 How Abacast Works $ ?Optimization routine runs continuously on Abacast server looking to move directly connected (L1) clients to viable distributing clients based on scores

16 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 How Abacast Works $ ?If distributing client disconnects then all receiving clients are moved to a new distributing client as necessary without interruption of service

17 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 SplitStreaming - Grid Delivery ?allows clients to distribute and receive both full and partial streams to better utilize available upstream bandwidth ab cd bcd a abcd cd ab abcd abc d abcd abc d

18 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 NATs and Firewalls ?Abacast works with several firewalls and has enhanced capabilities to allow clients to stream from one NAT to another ab cd a abcd cd ab abcd abc d abcd abc d NAT

19 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Reduction in Bandwidth Example Streaming Network Efficiency Total Audience 1882 Total Audience X 48Kbps = 88.2Mbps 102 Direct Connected X 48Kbps = 4.8Mbps Bandwidth Saved = 83.4Mbps

20 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Abacast Compared to Peer-to-Peer ?Not like classic peer-to-peer ?Each user is in constant contact with the server for real-time QoS monitoring ?Real-time redirection (no stale peer lists) ?Users do not know anything about each other ?Users do not store anything for each other ?Users are only distribute signal when actively connected ?If the user needs their upstream bandwidth they always have priority over Abacast distribution of the stream

21 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Abacast Compared to Unicast ?Similarities: 8Full DRM Compatibility 8Media Formats: ?Server plug-in architecture allows for quick adaptation for any format - Windows Media, MP3, aacPlus, MPEG 2, MPEG 4, … 8Encoding 8Media Players: ?Client plug-in architecture allows for quick adaptation to any player - Windows Media, Real, Winamp, Custom with API 8End-User Operations 8Browser Independent

22 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Abacast Compared to Unicast ?Important Differences: Efficiency: 98% to 52% reduction in bandwidth 8Scalability 8Reduced Infrastructure Deployment 8Stability, Adaptability 8Quality of Service Monitoring all the way to end-user

23 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Quality of Service - Better Stream Connection ?Abacast technology has proven higher quality stream connections than standard unicast stream technology. ?In side-by-side comparisons Abacast Enabled streams had fewer breaks, skips, or buffers than standard unicast streaming technology. ?The result is that listeners and viewers stay connected to your streams longer and have better streaming experiences with fewer interruptions.

24 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 No need for Multicast 8Extremely Efficient (single stream serves each group/location) 8No expensive equipment 8Significantly less IT staff time 8More efficient than hardware Multicast 8Drastically less expensive 8and unlike traditional hardware multicasting, it really works! Abacast provides all the benefits of Multicast without any of the setup time, hassle, or expense.

25 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Full Service Offering ?Lowest Cost, Highest Quality Live Streaming ?Complete, Real-time Statistics including Cume, AQH, Peak, Average Duration, Uniques, Sessions, and more… ?Full End-user Support & Extensive Knowledge Base ?24 by 7 Premier Customer Support ?Ad/Content Injection variable length, unique buffering system, affidavit reports, several trigger types… ?Digital Right Management ?Automatic Encoder Pager Alert System ?Hosted Services and Technology Only

26 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Full Service Offering ?Subscription Systems ?Podcasting ?Cellular Streaming ?On-Demand Streaming ?Automatic Archiving ?Web/Player Design ?Audio Processing Cards ?Virtual Video Drivers ?Encoding Software

27 Patent No. 6,970,937 B1 Network Statistics Real-time Peak & Duration, also Cume, AQH,…
