Microsoft has named Equilibrium a finalist for their Communications Sector Partner of the Year Award.

Equilibrium’s MediaRich for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server is a highly effective management and deployment tool for digital media that features a scalable, high-volume media distribution and repurposing engine.

With MediaRich for SharePoint, Microsoft SharePoint’s powerful capabilities are extended to include the automated visualization and dynamic processing of Office documents as well as image and video assets. This is a necessity to meet the pace of demands in the advertising, manufacturing, retailing, publishing, communications, entertainment and government market sectors.

EQ Network Private Beta Continues


At the recent National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas, Equilibrium introduced the new EQ Network™. The EQ Network enables content owners to quickly deploy a Media Delivery Bar™ on their site allowing viewers to effortlessly request personalized videos to be prepared and delivered via a breakthrough Ad-Per-View™ Software as a Service (SaaS). For the first time ever, content owners can also personalize video experiences to web, wireless and mobile devices on-the-fly, without any pre-processing.

Equilibrium’s Media Delivery Bar provides website video content owners with the tools to hyper-target advertisements to individuals based on voluntary demographic information they supply. The Media Deliver Bar can be installed on any web page that contains video content within minutes, without requiring additional infrastructure costs or changes for the content owner or advertiser. Simply install the bar, configure your account and let EQ’s massively scalable Ad-Per-View technology prepare and deliver your content while trafficking ads dynamically.

The EQ Network’s scalable Ad-Per-View technology automatically optimizes video content for billions of existing mobile devices, Internet video players and new ones as they become available.
