Partnership upgrades encoding quality, addresses multi-site delivery with DVR functionality and simultaneous browser & mobile streaming.

Kulabyte (http://www.kulabyte.com), a leading developer of cutting-edge high-definition (HD) live video encoding and streaming solutions, and 316 Networks (http://solutions.316networks.com), the leading provider of multisite, browser, and mobile online video technology for churches and ministries, have entered into an exclusive agreement to market and implement Kulabyte’s XStreamLive encoding software to the faith community. Through this partnership, the two companies form an alliance to deliver the best-of-class high definition live encoding solution for ministries worldwide.

Branded as WorldCast XStream, the new offering expands the capabilities of 316 Networks’ WorldCast encoding hardware to include Kulabyte’s XStreamLive software pre-installed. The software includes an easy to use interface with many advanced features for managing dynamic streaming events. In addition, 316 Networks and Kulabyte will launch a new DVR service for multisite and delayed broadcasting scenarios. When combined with VX Media Suite, 316 Networks’ online video platform, ministries will have a complete end-to-end solution for live delivery to multiple locations, browsers, and mobile devices.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Kulabyte to create this incredible combination of technologies to deliver the ideal end-to-end solution for live broadcasting. This has been in the works for a long time, and we’re glad to have come to this day. Ministries will now be able to cost-effectively execute on their multisite and online strategies,” stated Chance Mason, President of Global Faith Initiatives for 316 Networks.

”We are thrilled to be bringing together the best live video streaming technology with the best end-to-end media platform in the faith community," said Peter Forman, Chairman and CEO of Kulabyte. “We’re excited to be a part of such a powerful, complete and cost-effective set of solutions.”
