Sandia National Laboratories Adopts ViewCast Media Extensions to Enable Digital Asset Management Capabilities on IBM FileNet P8

PLANO, Texas, May 24, 2011 – ViewCast Corporation (OTCBB: VCST), a developer of industry-leading solutions for the transformation, management and delivery of digital media over enterprise, broadband, and mobile networks, today announced that Sandia National Laboratories has selected ViewCast Media Extensions (VME) software and services to support the company’s enterprise-class repository of digital media assets that reside on FileNet® P8, IBM®’s next-generation enterprise content management platform. VME enables FileNet users to easily mouse-over thumbnails to preview images, video and multi-page documents; convert video files; and export/import preservation metadata to/from a range of file formats like PDF documents, image files, sound files, Microsoft office documents, and more. As a result, Sandia’s FileNet users can now quickly and easily find, view and manage their digital assets without the need to download files, install plug-ins or third-party applications, or leave the FileNet P8 environment.

“The combination of VME and FileNet is ideally suited to address Sandia’s digital asset management requirements,? said Dave Stoner, ViewCast President and CEO. “While FileNet’s strengths focus on content, business process, and records management, VME delivers scalable digital media management capabilities that automate otherwise complex media activities and ultimately minimizes operating costs.?

ViewCast Media Extensions (VME) enables users to:

View thumbnails and previews of images and documents
• Mouse-over thumbnails to preview images, video and multi-page documents (recognizes more than 100 image formats)
