Coronaviruses (CoV) come from a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 that was not previously identified in humans. The strain of the virus we are seeing today called 2019 Novel Cornavirus (2019-nCoV) is highly contagious and easily transmitted between people and has become a global pandemic. To stop the spread of the noval corona virus around the globe and here in America employers, are urged to enable their employees to work from home and telecommute. Public gatherings and events such as concerts, church gatherings, and schools have been closed and officials say indefinite closures are a real possibility thus leading administration teams scrambling to start or enhance a virtual online streaming program.
Covid-19 is a highly infectious virus and is transmitted mainly from person to person

Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.
The CDC has provided a step by step resource on how to protect your self from the spread of the Covid-19 Corona Virus. Please visit their site for more information.
Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. Please consult with your health care provider about additional steps you may be able to take to protect yourself.

Today the live streaming of funerals and memorial service is becoming a popular service that mortuaries are now offering families. Live video streaming is a term used to depict the transmission of a real time event that is filmed and broadcast over the Internet (generally sound and video) in a ceaseless video feed like you would see on television. The term live streaming means the event is happening in real time so you can watch the event when it happens. Online memorial or funeral streaming service is the broadcast of a memorial service or burial service as it happens continuously.
Live video streaming funerals is a moderately new innovation presently being offered by various Funeral homes and memorial service suppliers which permits grievers who can’t go to a burial service a chance to watch the memorial service remotely from on online media capable device like a PC, Mobile Phone or Tablet.
Funeral streaming service is a relatively new space that is becoming popular with churches, mortuaries and burial service providers who supply live streaming capabilities for their customers that have video cameras mounted strategically within the chapel where the funeral service will take place. Different encoding software tied to the video cameras system is launched to begin a live streaming event or live streaming video feed at an appointed time. When that time arrives, the cameras will switch on automatically and transmit the funeral service live over the Internet, also the system may be able to do some recording it at the same time.
Usually the funeral provider will give mourners and family members access to the event’s recording for a period of time after the day of the live event. This gives extended family and those who are not able to view the service live a chance to watch the recorded version online at a more convenient time.
At the place of broadcast meaning the funeral home, church or burial site one must have bandwidth available via a wired connection or a wireless connection. The main concern is the up speed of the connection because this is going to dictate the quality of the live video stream or transmission. What this means is the quality of the video shown to the end user will be 100% dependent on the up speed and quality of the Internet connection. So lets just say you only had 1.5 megs “1500Kb” up on a wireless connection. What this means is your video feed to the streaming server could only be at the most 1000kb to 1200kb stream so you have a smooth encoding session to the streaming server and not produce a bunch of dropped packets and buffering. Buffering is the most common problem with streaming, which is where the program’s video packet delivery doesn’t fill up quickly enough, leading to a break in the stream or a reduction in quality. You wouldn’t want to saturate your up link speed for this reason so this means you most likely produce a smaller quality video feed like an HD720 feed versus a 1080P feed.
If you are a funeral home or church XYZ Stream Hosting can help get you started with live video streaming and the archiving of video of your memorial services, sermons and live events. XYZ Stream Hosting has provided live streaming services for over 12 years and can walk you through establishing a live video streaming environment for your facilities. XYZ Stream Hosting offers a complete solution for streaming live events from affordable broadcast server solutions, media and video storage capable websites that are the ideal application for any funeral home or church who wants to supply live funeral streaming services.

In this article we are going to discuss everything you need to know about stream hosting, which includes live audio and video streaming and video on demand. The first thing you need to understand is that streaming audio and video content requires distributing large file types real time that demand lots of resources to serve to your viewers or listeners. Traditionally appliance based servers or groups of servers are usually required to ensure that all of your content reaches your users in a timely fashion. These servers usually talk to each other in distributing the content to help regionalize content distribution so people in different parts of the world can receive your media in a timely fashion. In this article, we’ll guide you to the best options for delivering streaming content to your customers.
On a small very scale most of your bargain web hosting plans can accommodate the resources to make available a direct download mp3 or h264 video file for podcast for playback in HTML5. As your content library grows in size and the amount of programming starts to take on longer viewer or listening times you will soon realize that you will outgrow your hosting environment quite rapidly
If you are running a media intensive website you are going to want a dedicated stream hosting provider like XYZ Streaming Hosting that is designed for media sharing and online content distribution. It can become quite frustrating to your end-users to sit through a video that constantly stops and starts or takes forever to download. For live streaming environments for audio and video you want fluid distribution so listeners and viewers have the best experience accessing your content. How many of those visitors do you think would return to your site if your content kept dropping out and buffering? It takes time for you to develop that content you want to make sure it gets viewed, streamed and delivered to the person who requested it in a quick and timely manner. Right?
XYZ Stream Hosting alleviates those kinds of issues. XYZ Stream Hosting offers streaming plans that are made available via cloud distributed regionalized hosting, which takes much of the burden of streaming off the local computer, speeding things up and increasing the delivery fidelity and reliability.
Selecting the right stream hosting provider is vitally important. If your goal is to produce and provide streaming media content, your streaming servers needs to be constantly online. If media disappears halfway through streaming, it’s going to frustrate people, and users are unlikely to revisit the site.

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, February 24, 2015 — The in-store radio architecture is typically a patchwork of systems and components from different sources to deliver music and advertising to businesses, with challenging scenarios for licensing music and audio content. The formation of StoreStreams aims to simplify the launch and management of a multi-site in-store radio system, cleanly integrating IT network infrastructure with audio players—and providing the content, licensing and user interface to ensure a unified and profitable service.
StoreStreams brings together the music catalog and network intelligence of XYZ Stream Hosting, a specialist in live, multiplatform content delivery; with end point hardware supplied through LineQ, a distributor specializing in networked AV equipment. LineQ will supply Ecler Sound amplifiers, Cornered Sound loudspeakers and media players from Barix, an IP audio pioneer with hundreds of thousands of hardware players in deployment worldwide. Furthermore, the service operates on a contract-free, month-to-month basis for maximum operational flexibility.
The StoreStreams service will focus specifically on streaming content to network operators and retail businesses that want a wide selection of music channels, without the headaches of procuring and licensing content. A clean and intuitive interface will allow curators and program managers to build playlists and manage content with ease. Included within the management application is the ability to structure and schedule ad placement, station ID’s and promotional material. For resellers and integrators, the complete integrated package minimizes components and eliminates installation headaches, further accelerating deployments.
Perhaps above all, the reliability of the cloud-based, redundant streaming architecture will ensure a live, branded streaming service with high availability for networks of any scale—ensuring a dynamic, high-quality and uninterrupted in-store radio experience.
“Utilizing 21 data centers, StoreStreams serves retail businesses nationwide with hyper-regionalized content and customized services directly from the data center closest to each business location,” said Charles Odom, vice president of marketing, StoreStreams. “And through our multichannel music library and licensing agreements, our customers will have access to the most up-to-date content with full legality.”
Will Schmidt, vice president of sales for LineQ, adds that packaging the content and licensing into an integrated solution with streaming, content management, and end point tools also makes StoreStreams an ideal platform for content curators. By including content and licensing, curators can manage audio programming for retail businesses without getting involved in the legal aspects of the in-store media business.
“By aligning everything under one management system and offering comfortable month-to-month contracts, StoreStreams and LineQ have a recipe for anyone to succeed at in-store radio,” said Schmidt, adding that the entire solution is engineered to deliver an absorbing retail customer experience. “The placement of the servers and optimization of end points for consistency in live streaming is all designed to provide superior performance. This is a service that is built to satisfy customers for the long haul.”
LineQ is currently offering six months of free service with the purchase of an endpoint device, such as the Barix Exstreamer—the device that receives, decodes and plays out audio content inside stores. The complete solution will be available by end of February.
StoreStreams is the turnkey in-store audio solution that integrates seamlessly within retail environments, providing access to a wide-ranging music catalog that complements the atmosphere of any business. Founded by musicians and music lovers, StoreStreams creates customized, branded radio channels that remove the elevator music stigma, and is driven by technology that ensures the highest quality sound. StoreStreams also ensures the highest possible uptime for live streaming services without interruption through its regionalized, redundant server environments, offering reliable and scalable services for both the single retail storefront and large business networks with thousands of locations.

HOPKINTON, Mass., July 18, 2011
EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) today announced that PEER 1 Hosting, one of the top hosting providers in the world with 12,000 customers, has deployed EMC® Atmos™ globally distributed cloud storage as the foundation of its CloudOne Storage, a self-service, metered storage solution. Powered by EMC Atmos, which provides powerful and efficient management of globally distributed cloud storage and big data environments, PEER 1’s CloudOne storage provides customers with a highly flexible, cost-efficient and reliable storage-as-a-service solution for content and data storage, backup and archiving, off-loading of large media objects and virtually any other data requirement.
Dax Moreno, General Manager of ServerBeach, PEER 1 Hosting’s dedicated server division, said, “We did an exhaustive evaluation of eight cloud providers, but EMC was the only one that offered a completely integrated software and hardware cloud storage solution. We were also impressed with EMC’s big R&D investments in cloud. We avoided having to start from scratch and build our own solution or buy pieces from different vendors. So we were able to go to market much faster by deploying EMC Atmos’ robust and proven cloud storage.”
With headquarters in Vancouver and 17 data centers worldwide, PEER 1 Hosting’s deployment of EMC Atmos has provided them with the ability to scale to unlimited capacities. The solution incorporates key features of EMC Atmos software, including GeoProtect for advanced data protection, Atmos Web Service APIs for integrating customers’ Internet-based applications with CloudOne Storage, and multi-tenancy to enable PEER 1 Hosting to securely and efficiently serve multiple applications from a single cloud infrastructure.
John Hamner, Product Manager, PEER 1 Hosting said, “Atmos has a lot of built-in flexibility because we can easily set different policies to match the different cost and availability requirements of our cloud storage customers. We want to make sure that CloudOne Storage provides not just raw storage but also the high availability our customers demand. Additionally, with Atmos’ GeoProtect, we get sophisticated data protection that is designed specifically for cloud environments.”
One of PEER 1 Hosting’s objectives is to make sign up and access to CloudOne easy. “Our go-to-market strategy is to make CloudOne Storage just three clicks away from any customer that wants it,” stated Hamner. “EMC Atmos helped us reach that goal and in addition, using the new Atmos APIs, we are able to customize the fit for our customer’s offerings and tap into a number of different markets such as streaming media or desktop backups.”
One such customer is XYZMP3.com, which distributes digital music and video to consumers through a variety of devices such as game systems, digital video recorders, smart phones and PCs.
Roland DeLeon, CEO of XYZMP3.com, explained, “By leveraging the Atmos API, we have our digital media streaming application tightly integrated with CloudOne Storage. This has really accelerated our go-to-market strategy because artists, producers and media outlets can use our offering to more rapidly distribute their creative music and video content across a wide variety of channels.”
“Instead of simply storing our customers’ data,” Moreno adds, “we’re able to cache the popular content on servers, use site accelerators to distribute it a lot quicker, and provide faster page loads and response times. As higher-quality video and music becomes more pervasive on the Web, our cloud storage offering is expanding its role as a huge market enabler for our customers.”
EMC Corporation is a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver IT as a service. Fundamental to this transformation is cloud computing. Through innovative products and services, EMC accelerates the journey to cloud computing, helping IT departments to store, manage, protect and analyze their most valuable asset — information — in a more agile, trusted and cost-efficient way.

WXLV 90.3FM, the radio station of Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC), achieved the first-ever transmission to all video-enabled dissimilar mobile devices of President Obama’s visit on December 4th, 2009. In order to facilitate this, Harry Snodgrass, program director for WXLV enlisted the service of XYZMP3.com. The resulting convergence of media was facilitated by XYZMP3’s groundbreaking Digital Media Distribution Platform.
XYZMP3 and WXLV are excited to have set the precedent and demonstrated the cutting edge in media delivery. The XYZ Platform acts as a digital-asset content management system and delivery network; including the ability to collect subscription or pay-per-view monies from consumers to delivering royalty payments and backend payment fulfillment to sellers. In addition, the platform allows for “end user specific” advertising opportunities as well as interactive advertising; allowing for direct sales of products to the end user through their preferred media device.
The devices chosen for our wildly successful experiment were those with the widest consumer bases and the best built-in support for streaming video and audio, other than the traditional web streaming methods. XYZMP3 developed the applications and provided the delivery network and management system to stream to all the non-traditional devices as well as part of the main streaming feeds. WXLV’s website had over 400,000 hits during the broadcast.
The final number of viewers for each device is as follows:
iPhone video – over 130,000
Wii and PS3 video – 25,000
PSP and iPhone audio only – 30,000
Traditional Flash Streaming Video – 12,000
Traditional Streaming audio – 200,000
This effort was achieved with generous donations of time and support from the staff of XYZMP3, as well as the tiny LCCC Information Technology team and volunteers and students at WXLV. Time limitations of less then one week made this a monumental task, but due to the many hours put in by XYZMP3 and WXLV, the event was wildly successful.
As far as our research has indicated, no one else has ever broadcast a live event, especially one as momentous as a Presidential speech, to all of these devices simultaneously. The overwhelming positive response confirms the public demand for expansion of traditional media to incorporate this type of technology. WXLV, LCCC, and XYZMP3 are proud to have led the charge of broadcasting all types of radio, news, and other programming on all types of multimedia devices. WXLV and LCCC consider our new partner for this event, XYZMP3, the leader in this field. Through the vision of both the college’s team leader Harry Snodgrass and XYZMP3’s CEO Roland De Leon, this event and marriage of technology became a reality.
The large viewership was achieved by showing the functional IPhone stream to many of the press in attendance at the event. Their comments in social networking venues, blogs, Twitter and phone calls to others helped in spreading the word about our unprecedented accessibility. Also, XYZMP3, sent out a press release to 250 clients and bloggers. Due to the viral nature of the Internet, this created a tidal wave of viewers for the launch of President Obama’s White House to Main Street Tour.
WXLV is the radio station of LCCC. Through the leadership of its program director Harry Snodgrass, WXLV has embraced the “Free Form” model of radio, allowing on air talent comprised of both students and community volunteers, to play the music they enjoy and can educate the public about. WXLV utilizes the appointment listening model, which allows listeners to hear the music they enjoy at the same time each week through local FM radio and streaming audio. WXLV and LCCC hope to continue expanding accessibility of broadcast media to local, national, and worldwide venues. According to Harry Snodgrass, “through convergence, which includes radio, multimedia and all other forms of broadcasting, it is our vision to take radio to the next level of interactivity and distribution, and become a leader in this new technology landscape.” WXLV and Harry Snodgrass can be reached at 610-799-1145 and at email@example.com.
