streaming media devices, today announced a partnership with
Celestin Group, LLC (CG) to support its business development
efforts in the corporate communications and reseller channel
markets. Ituner sought the sales and marketing support services
provided by CG in preparation for its Q4 2002 roll-out of its
next-generation MediaBox suite of streaming content encoders,
decoders, and server technologies.

"Ituner perceives a strong potential to
grow market share and expand our profitability by collaborating
with Celestin Group," comments Andrei Bulucea, Ituner's chief
executive officer. "CG's strong ties and understanding of the
channel combined with Ituner's unique and high-quality product
lines makes for a powerful recipe to expand our business and
better serve the growing demand for streaming multimedia".
"Serious Internet broadcasters have come
to realize that software-based streaming simply can't deliver
the quality and reliability that businesses need to communicate
to their stakeholders," observes Toussaint Celestin, CG's chief
consultant officer. "Ituner's format independent hardware
solutions clearly stand out from the average marketplace
offerings and we're excited about the growth opportunities that
will arise from this type of product superiority."
Ituner's streaming technologies are format
independent, supporting all major streaming solutions including
RealNetworks, WMA, MP3, Vorbis, MPEG4, and QTSS. The company's
flagship product, MediaBox, provides streaming media server
encoding and decoding for live and on-demand audio and video.
Ituner also hosts a global broadband network comprised of
multiple distribution hubs along with a comprehensive
international radio and TV station portal, Worldband.com.
Ituner Networks Corporation provides turnkey streaming solutions
for companies that want to broadcast to large audiences over the
Internet. Ituner is the maker of the MediaBox, the award winning
multi-format streaming server capable of multicast or unicast
streaming of high quality video and audio through broadband
networks at various stream rates in multiple formats.

implementation and use of splitting and buffering technologies,
gathering live signals from multiple sources across the world.
