Microsoft, Eloquent Partner on Digital Media Solution

Microsoft Corp. and Eloquent Inc., a provider of Web-based rich media business communications solutions, announced a strategic agreement to develop a comprehensive enterprise communications solution for the management and delivery of streaming media. This solution will help address the needs of enterprise customers to manage the large volume of streamed Windows Media content on their corporate networks.

Microsoft and Eloquent will collaborate to fully integrate Windows Media technology into the Eloquent Communications Server, a streaming content and enrichment system, to create a business communications solution for the enterprise. In addition, Eloquent will assist large companies with rich media communications by offering Windows Media content creation services. The Eloquent Communications Server combined with the Windows Media platform, will be a digital media communications solution promoted by Microsoft’s sales force.

The Eloquent Communications Server transforms Windows Media-based rich media content into content that can be searched and navigated so knowledge workers can access the specific information they need. The combined solution allows users to create enriched streaming content with presentation slides, product demonstrations, discussions, polls, documents, URLs, and other business objects. Enterprises will be able to create, find, secure, and manage streaming content for a broad range of applications. – Isaac Slepner
