While we recognize that the MPAA does not endorse specific technologies, we are pleased that they have chosen to assess how our technology can benefit the film industry
Beverly Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) July 5, 2008
In order to clarify an earlier press release, DreamStream issued a statement explaining the Motion Picture Association of America's involvement in the presentation of DreamStream's media streaming technology to the major motion picture studios.
"DreamStream used unfortunate wording to describe our relationship with the MPAA," said Scott Diffenderfer, chief executive officer for DreamStream. "We did not wish to make any implications of endorsement of our technology by the MPAA and apologize for any confusion in this regard."
Dreamstream's original statement indicated that the MPAA approved the technology. However, Diffenderfer said that it was Dreamstream's intention to simply report that the MPAA had "completed an initial assessment of DreamStream's media streaming technology to be shared with the major motion picture studios."
In a statement issued on July 3, 2008, Krishnan Rajagopalan, vice president of digital media technology for the MPAA, emphasized the MPAA's official policy of not endorsing individual technologies or companies.
The purpose of the MPAA's initial assessment of DreamStream's media streaming technology is to provide the major motion picture studios with basic information so that further independent exploration may commence.
"While we recognize that the MPAA does not endorse specific technologies, we are pleased that they have chosen to assess how our technology can benefit the film industry," said Ulf Diebel, DreamStream's chief development officer. "The MPAA's commitment to securing the studios' interests is unsurpassed. Piracy is waging war against the entertainment industry, and the MPAA is relentless in defending the rights of content owners."
DreamStream's media streaming technology uses military-grade encryption to protect digital files from piracy. For more information on DreamStream visit http://www.dreamstream.info.
