BaoShinn Signs Distribution Agreement with SendtoNews™

BaoShinn Corporation (“BaoShinn” or the “Company”, OTCQB: BHNN), is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Syndicore Asia Limited (“SAL”), has entered into a revised Distribution Agreement For Media (the “Agreement”) with SendtoNews Video Incorporated (“STN”).

On December 15, 2013 SAL was granted the exclusive Asia Pacific (the “Territory”) license to use, modify, edit, reproduce, distribute, feed, communicate, display and transmit STN’s content (the “Content”). This includes all sports video content that is available for distribution in the region through STN’s feeds of its global rights portfolio. SendtoNews would also provide on-going assistance to SAL with regard to technical, administrative and service-oriented issues relating to the delivery, utilization, transmission, storage and maintenance of the Content. For more information about SendtoNews and their content, please visit their website at www.sendtonews.com.The Asia Pacific region includes 60 different Territories, with some of the major countries being Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan and India. As of June 2013, China alone had 591 million internet users and over 1.1 billion phone subscriptions, including over 300 million 3G users, (Source: China Internet Network Information Center). China is also the number one location in the world to host major sporting events, having retained number one position in Sportcal's Global Sports Nations Index for 2013.

Subsequent to the Agreement, the parties entered into a revised Distribution Agreement on January 20, 2014 whereby STN has agreed to provide SAL transferrable rights for the use, reproduction, storage, display, and transmission of certain content subject to pre-approval in writing from STN. In addition, the revised Distribution Agreement includes changes to the revenue sharing terms, and adds a share of advertising revenue directly resulting from aggregated content by SAL within the Territory.

According to Cisco Systems, roughly 86 per cent of all Internet traffic will be video by 2016, and a healthy proportion of that will be sports video. SAL will strive to become a leading digital content provider for the Asia Pacific region, capitalizing on an explosively growing market with local, regional and national content, including domestic Asian and foreign sports content.

Further, the company wishes to announce the launch of their new website at www.syndicoreasia.com.

“We are very excited about signing this Agreement with SendtoNews, as it gives us a great opportunity to leverage off SendtoNews’ tremendous relationships and distribution partnerships with access to major sporting syndication content for distribution across Asia” said Sean Webster, CEO of BaoShinn. He added “we also hope to obtain and create content from Asia to provide both domestic and international markets previously unavailable digital sporting content, and we believe SendtoNews’ global video rights portfolio for online distribution has great potential to carry an immediate and large number of viewers.”

SendtoNews’ CEO Greg Bobolo commented “SendtoNews is pleased to start this relationship with Syndicore Asia Ltd. We look forward to the potential opportunities presented by expanding in Asia with a local presence, especially given the enormous size of the markets there and their appetite for digital sports media content.”

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketi...

It has never been a better time to be a developer! Thanks to cloud computing, deploying our applications is much easier than it used to be. How we deploy our apps continues to evolve thanks to cloud hosting, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and now Function-as-a-Service. FaaS is the concept of serverless computing via serverless architectures. Software developers can leverage this to deploy an individual "function", action, or piece of business logic. They are expected to start within milliseconds...

We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices - not doing so will be a path to eventual ...
This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges. In the age of DevOps and the decentralization of IT, it’s easy to over-provision resources, forget that instances are running, or unintentionally expose vulnerabilities.
There are two main reasons for infrastructure automation. First, system administrators, IT professionals and DevOps engineers need to automate as many routine tasks as possible. That’s why we build tools at Stackify to help developers automate processes like application performance management, error monitoring, and log management; automation means you have more time for mission-critical tasks. Second, automation makes the management of complex, diverse environments possible and allows rapid scal...

The first step to solving a problem is recognizing that it actually exists. And whether you've realized it or not, cloud services are a problem for your IT department. Even if you feel like you have a solid grasp of cloud technology and the nuances of making a cloud purchase, business leaders don't share the same confidence. Nearly 80% feel that IT lacks the skills necessary to help with cloud purchases-and they're looking to cloud brokers for help instead. It's time to admit we have a cloud s...
According to a recent Gartner study, by 2020, it will be unlikelythat any enterprise will have a “no cloud” policy, and hybrid will be the most common use of the cloud. While the benefits of leveraging public cloud infrastructures are well understood, the desire to keep critical workloads and data on-premise in the private data center still remains. For enterprises, the hybrid cloud provides a best of both worlds solution. However, the leading factor that determines the preference to the hybrid ...
In this modern world of IT, you've probably got some new colleagues in your life-namely, the cloud and SaaS providers who now hold your infrastructure in their hands. These business relationships-yes, they're technology-based, but cloud and SaaS are business models-will become as important to your IT team and your company as the hardware and software you used to install. Once you've adopted SaaS, or inherited SaaS, it's on you to avoid price hikes, licensing issues and app or provider sprawl....
A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general. Although few people are familiar with Microservers today, their impact will be felt very soon. This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
