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.”

For those of us that have been practicing SOA for over a decade, it's surprising that there's so much interest in microservices. In fairness microservices don't look like the vendor play that was early SOA in the early noughties. But experienced SOA practitioners everywhere will be wondering if microservices is actually a good thing. You see microservices is basically an SOA pattern that inherits all the well-known SOA principles and adds characteristics that address the use of SOA for distribut...
Microservice architectures are the new hotness, even though they aren't really all that different (in principle) from the paradigm described by SOA (which is dead, or not dead, depending on whom you ask). One of the things this decompositional approach to application architecture does is encourage developers and operations (some might even say DevOps) to re-evaluate scaling strategies. In particular, the notion is forwarded that an application should be built to scale and then infrastructure sho...

Our guest on the podcast this week is Jason Bloomberg, President at Intellyx. When we build services we want them to be lightweight, stateless and scalable while doing one thing really well. In today's cloud world, we're revisiting what to takes to make a good service in the first place. Listen in to learn why following "the book" doesn't necessarily mean that you're solving key business problems.
Microservices are the result of decomposing applications. That may sound a lot like SOA, but SOA was based on an object-oriented (noun) premise; that is, services were built around an object - like a customer - with all the necessary operations (functions) that go along with it. SOA was also founded on a variety of standards (most of them coming out of OASIS) like SOAP, WSDL, XML and UDDI. Microservices have no standards (at least none deriving from a standards body or organization) and can be b...
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...
SYS-CON Events announced today the DevOps Foundation Certification Course, being held June ?, 2015, in conjunction with DevOps Summit and 16th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. This sixteen (16) hour course provides an introduction to DevOps – the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals. Improved workflows will res...
Microservices, for the uninitiated, are essentially the decomposition of applications into multiple services. This decomposition is often based on functional lines, with related functions being grouped together into a service. While this may sound a like SOA, it really isn't, especially given that SOA was an object-centered methodology that focused on creating services around "nouns" like customer and product. Microservices, while certainly capable of being noun-based, are just as likely to be v...
An explosive combination of technology trends will be where ‘microservices’ and the IoT Internet of Things intersect, a concept we can describe by comparing it with a previous theme, the ‘X Internet.' The idea of using small self-contained application components has been popular since XML Web services began and a distributed computing future of smart fridges and kettles was imagined long back in the early Internet years.
Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
SOA Software has changed its name to Akana.
