Internet Broadcast Corp (IBC), is an online broadcast news network using proprietary technology to repackage timely video news aggregated from global news broadcasters and users who submit their own content. IBC provides a global platform for broadcasters and advertisers around the world, providing users with on-demand, translated and archived video news, free of charge.
To accommodate differing global client environments and to ensure maximum broadcast quality, IBC had NTG build a robust and high quality Flash video player.
“Tens of thousands of students depend on our seminar system to attend their online classes everyday. With NTG’s help we were to stress test, implement and improve the performance of our latest generation platform in a matter of weeks instead of months.
The quality of NTG’s work, as well as their professionalism, is unmatched and, as an added bonus, their recommendations helped us to dramatically increase the number of concurrent users in our system, without purchasing additional hardware, providing us with immediate payback on their services.”
- Jorge Camargo, Product Manager, Kaplan University
NTG’s expertise with Flash Media Server application and deployment architecture, were strategically used by Kaplan University to roll out Kaplan’s online seminar system.
Lyondell is a global chemical company with over $16B in assets. During the summer of 2007, Lyondell looked to NTG to help them implement a Flash Media Server-based training system. This internal system would be used to train Lyondell personnel on the proper safety procedures required by their business.
Over the course of a 3 week engagement, NTG helped Lyondell explore the applicability of FMS towards their goals and then built a fully functional FMS video player for their environment.

MTV is the ubiquitous cable television network based in New York City. Since 1981, the station has been broadcasting a variety of music, pop culture and reality TV shows aimed at adolescents and young adults.

“When the New England Journal of Medicine decided to create video articles on our Web site for the first time, we needed to find a team with a proven track record for developing streaming video applications. We found that expertise at the New Toronto Group. NTG recognized that it was critical for us to get this right. They helped us articulate our functional requirements and the application they helped us build has been exceptionally well received.”
- Jean Nugent, Manager, Electronic Initiatives, New England Journal of Medicine
New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) chose NTG to help them add video content to their on-line offerings for the first time. In particular, NEJM had concerns about ensuring that subscribers in 152 countries had equal access to online video content.
NTG helped NEJM define their requirements. Then NTG built sophisticated, custom Flash video players. NTG helped NEJM establish encoding and administrative practices and helped NEJM stream their video via Akamai’s Content Delivery Network.
Ryerson University needed to provide online orientation to their first year students.
NTG was chosen to help identify the requirements and then build the Flash Media Server-based application that included video streaming and online chat.
NTG was approached by Adobe Systems and Spike TV to design and develop an application that would allow participants to log onto a virtual “green room” where they could chat via text and interact with one another.
The application was written by NTG in less than two weeks using Adobe’s Flash Media Server technology. The event was then simulcast live from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and via the Web on Spike TV.com.
