Edgartown, MA (PRWEB) April 2, 2007
Emergency Film Group -- a world-wide leader in video-based training for emergency responders -- has announced a partnership with Digital Rights Director to deliver Emergency Film Group's award-winning training programs online via streaming video. Online delivery of video files eliminates the costs and time of shipping, and gives the customer flexible options to download and view the programs.
Emergency Film Group, an award-winning leader in video and DVD-based training, has produced and distributed training films, videos and DVDs since 1987. Over 1,000,000 emergency personnel worldwide have been trained with these authoritative training tools which assist response organizations in saving lives, combating terrorism, fighting fires, mitigating disasters, managing hazardous incidents, and protecting the environment.
The company made the decision to provide the online streaming option after receiving a number of requests from customers. "This is very exciting, because before this, only organizations could afford to acquire this training," said Gordon Massingham, President of Emergency Film Group. "But now, because of this cutting edge technology, anyone can get very reasonably-priced access to these programs by exceptionally high quality downloads."
Customers on the Emergency Film Group web site, http://www.http://www.efilmgroup.com, are able to select 'Streaming Video' directly from each product page. That link directs the customer to a mirror site, http://www.emergencyfilmgroup.com which was configured by Digital Rights Director to provide the encoded training videos as a streaming product.
Digital Rights Director, http://www.digitalrightsdirector.com, offers a complete online media distribution platform for small to medium sized businesses that allows content owners to sell digital audio and video from their own e-commerce stores in a protected format that prevents digital piracy. "Digital Rights Director recognizes Emergency Film Group as the leader in emergency response training and we are honored that they have partnered with us to enhance the delivery options for their critical educational media," says Jonathan Castleman, President of Digital Rights Director.
Emergency Film Group programs are created with the assistance of a technical committee of subject matter experts who ensure they are accurate in every detail. Training topics include hazardous chemicals, incident management, evacuation, decontamination, weapons of mass destruction, clandestine drug labs, protective clothing, and many more timely issues of interest to emergency responders. These programs are purchased by organizations such as fire departments, law enforcement agencies, hospitals, emergency medical organizations, schools and universities, and emergency management agencies.
