SkyStream's Video Headend Systems Selected by Eagle Broadband and GlobeCast to Power Their IPTVComplete Turnkey Video Solution for Broadband Providers

Companies to Demonstrate IPTVComplete(TM) Video Service Using Advanced SkyStream Headend Technology at SuperComm 2005

SkyStream, the leader in IP video delivery solutions, announced today that Eagle Broadband (AMEX:EAG - News) and GlobeCast have selected the company's Mediaplex-20(TM) and iPlex(TM) headend systems to power their IPTVComplete(TM) turnkey video solution that enables telephone companies, municipalities, real estate developers and other broadband providers to deliver high-quality video and entertainment services to subscribers.
The companies will conduct demonstrations of IPTVComplete by appointment June 7-9 at the SUPERCOMM conference and trade show in Chicago.

IPTVComplete is a turnkey, end-to-end video solution that provides the fastest, most cost-effective way for telephone companies, municipalities, real estate developers and other broadband providers to launch and deliver high quality, IPTV video services to their customers over fiber or DSL broadband networks anywhere in America. IPTVComplete provides a unique combination of video content, headend infrastructure, satellite distribution, set-top boxes and operations support that reduces the time, effort and costs for new and incumbent broadband providers looking to generate new revenue streams from offering more competitive entertainment services.

"IPTV will be a key focus at SUPERCOMM this year and GlobeCast and Eagle Broadband's turnkey solution has made it much easier for providers to rapidly launch and deliver high quality video services to their subscribers," said Andy Lovit, vice president of worldwide field operations, SkyStream. "As we will demonstrate at the show, the IPTVComplete system offers telcos and other broadband providers a very attractive, turnkey IPTV solution that provides an alternative to buying and building their own customized headend."

SkyStream's Mediaplex and iPlex systems are highly dense, advanced video headend systems with carrier class performance and reliability. Eagle and GlobeCast are using SkyStream's Mediaplex-20 to aggregate, encapsulate and multiplex IPTV video programming for delivery over satellite directly to IPTVComplete's SkyStream iPlex remote headend systems that provide on-premise content aggregation and encapsulation for IPTV program distribution over the broadband provider's last mile distribution network.

IPTVComplete is available now. Prospective customers, press and analysts interested in seeing a demonstration and learning more about SkyStream's headend and the IPTVComplete service are encouraged to contact SkyStream at info@skystream.com or 408-616-3394 or Eagle Broadband at iptvinfo@eaglebroadband.com or 281-838-6034 to set up an appointment at SUPERCOMM.
