Raystream™ Inc. Announces Free Trial of HD Video Compression Tool for Businesses, Compliance with GNU LGPL

DALLAS–Raystream Inc. (OTCBB: RAYS) announced that a free trial of its HD video compression service will be available to any business offering HD video content online beginning Friday, December 16, 2011.

Raystream’s proprietary video compression technology drastically decreases the file size of HD videos — up to 90 percent, with an average of approximately 70 percent — with no loss in the quality or crystal clarity for which HD video is known. For raw HD video files, such as those still in capture devices or stored on DVDs or Blu-ray discs, Raystream’s rate of compression is even more dramatic; in fact, it is up to ten times greater. By reducing the file sizes to such a staggering degree, Raystream provides huge bandwidth savings to HD video content providers, while creating a far superior online viewing experience for the consumer – bringing an end to buffering and stopping of the video during play.

This disruptive innovation from Raystream can be used by businesses for streaming previously recorded HD video files, as well as for live streaming of HD video in real time – and even for full HD 3D video.

In addition, Raystream announced an independent international property rights management law firm conducted a thorough investigation of Raystream’s algorithm and has issued an opinion letter verifying that all aspects of Raystream’s software and technology are in complete compliance with the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) held by the Free Software Foundation.

Raystream’s compression algorithm is built on the x264 encoder licensed by CoreCodec, making it compliant with the worldwide standard format for video output. This allows for seamless integration of compressed videos into existing environments, and for standard video player support.
