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.”

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
