Penguin Playoffs Awards
We think that as time goes on, more and more transactions will be conducted electronically. For this basic reason, we have awarded Global Media Corp. (http://www.globalmediacorp.com/) our award for Best Overall Solution.
Global Media focuses on e-commerce tools for entertainment companies. They have built a network for the transmission of live audio and video over the Internet; their ready-made infrastructure is based on Linux.
The quality of Web content depends upon the quality of the stream for both audio and video, and we feel Global Media's private frame-relay network will result in a far better experience than what we have received in the past. The broadcast-encoding boxes all run a customized distribution of Linux. Global Media has teamed with RealNetworks where content is concerned.
As the producers of a product with the potential of impinging on all our lives, Global Media has earned the Best Overall award.
