    SHARNFORD, England and PLANO, Texas, July 15 /EMWNews-FirstCall/ --

Web TV-viewers in North America were able to watch live on June 21st as

Amir Khan defended his Commonwealth lightweight title against Michael Gomez

in the United Kingdom. Using advanced digital video encoding products from

manufacturer ViewCast(R) Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: VCST), Garland

Partners Limited (GPL) assisted client Ether Digital in the live video

streaming of this encounter via the Internet, as Khan -- despite the

Olympic silver-medalist being left bloodied by Gomez -- successfully

defended his title.



    "This was a very successful pilot trial covering a thrilling event,"

stated Malcolm Harland, Director of GPL. "Our technical support team worked

closely with Ether Digital's engineers throughout the 8-hour event to

ensure successful and continuous Web TV coverage for viewers in the United

States and Mexico," continued Harland.



    London-based Ether Digital, who's "Miomni" technology enables companies

to communicate and amplify core marketing messages through their own

dedicated global IPTV channels, plans to roll out full production services

for streaming live sports events this year as an addition to their already

popular Web TV services.



    "We're extremely pleased with this pilot test," said Mike Venner, CEO

of Ether Digital. "The technical support of our encoding partner, GPL, was

key to ensuring we would be able to launch this service to our customers

this year. We invested in the ViewCast Niagara(R)Pro platform after a

detailed market evaluation, and this pilot solidified our commitment to

using ViewCast solutions as we make more such events possible in the

future."



    Live Web TV coverage of this boxing event was made possible through

GPL's provision of Niagara streaming encoders manufactured by ViewCast. "We

are pleased that Ether Digital selected the ViewCast Niagara platform as

their Web TV broadcast solution," said Gary J. Klembara, Senior Vice

President of Sales for ViewCast. Klembara continued, "Utilizing our

industry leading technologies, GPL and Ether Digital were highly successful

in meeting their video content delivery requirements, and have developed a

solid and sustainable method for future IP-based video delivery."
