PUMit System Advantages • UbicMedia™ is part of a new generation of companies that believe that content needs to be able to move within the internet freely. Large media hubs concentrating terabytes of content in one spot don’t make sense in today’s economy for many reasons: Too costly to operate • Too costly to maintain • Ads are their properties and are independent of content!! • Secure Streaming of high quality contents are probably economically not viable • Legal problems linked to the ownership of content published online, are more and more crucial • Negative ecological impact • Bandwidth is constantly insufficient by definition • More and more security risks through browser plugins • Hi def and added value content are degraded to “fit the pipe” • No hub will contain as much content as a distributed network
The PUMit system brings a unique solution to all those problematic issues
PUMit System THANK YOU! …ANY QUESTIONS?
