You and your guests are invited to join the Richmond/Delta Branch for an informative presentation on "High Definition, Private and Secure Video Streaming at Low Band Width" presented by Mr. Peter Koat.

In this presentation, Mr. Koat will share his thought process on his development of a system that allows for the private and secure delivery of high-definition video over the internet. Since the ISO conference in Seoul, Korea in 1997, the digital video space has travelled down one particular path. Peter envisioned a better way to deliver video to the masses and has since strived and succeeded in delivering a product that allows a prospective broadcaster to do just that.
In particular, the presentation will go over:
  • Applications of the encloudHD system.
  • How Libré’s encloudHD system is able to provide a seamless viewer experience to the end-user in HD with existing pipeline constraints.
  • The ability of the system to deliver video to the end-user in a manner that is both private and secure. This of course is highly sought after in both the medical and entertainment environs.
Following the presentation will be a Q and A session on applications and design.

With a Bachelor of Science (major in Computer Science and minor in Commerce) from the University of British Columbia and a Diploma of Computer Science from Simon Fraser University, Mr. Koat brings valuable academic and practical experience to the technical development and utility enhancement of Libré. Mr. Koat started as the Algorithm Engineer/Project Lead in a compression firm’s Research Department in 1998. After serving in that firm as the Research and Development Operations Manager, Mr. Koat moved on to Director of Product Design until 2005. Since 2005 he has served as a consultant and advisor to many IT and technology firms where his technical and product development experience has been required. A key contributor to several patents on data compression and related topics, Mr. Koat authored and co-contributed various modules supporting other entities’ technologies.


Libré Communications Inc. is a Vancouver, BC based innovative company engaged in research, development and commercialization of a unique Linux-based video capture and distribution system called “encloudHD”.
The Libré System is a truly unique web-streaming system that digitally captures High Definition (HD) video in real time and simultaneously allows for the live playback to an unlimited number of users worldwide. The system provides key performance statistics, including easy-to-use scheduling, invitation and viewer analytics.
The company has a unique business model that involves three levels of revenue generation, appropriately called Level One – Equipment Sales of encloudHD, Level Two - Broadcasting Services revenues, and Level Three – Technology Licensing, Advertising and Third Party Sales.
The Company has several competitive advantages over comparative companies in the same industry. The management team at Libré combines a wealth of experience in the area of product design and manufacturing within the streaming media industry, as well as significant experience in its initial markets within the medical, entertainment and education industries. The Libré founders include an outstanding engineering team with decades of experience in the areas of hardware and software design that will ensure Libré’s market and product leadership in this field. The Libré encloudHD System is market ready, having been extensively tested over the past seven years to meet and exceed the needs of the medical and educational industries. The Libré system has enhanced product functionality over its competition, while remaining much easier to operate and use. This testing has resulted in a robust and technically competent system that can easily be used by both the highly educated medical professional and the average entertainment industry user alike.

The system is currently in use at major medical institutions in the United States. For example, the Libré system is being used to broadcast from both UCLA’s Ronald Reagan and Harbor Center campuses as well as Torrance Memorial hospital in Torrance, California and is also in use at the California Pacific Medical Medical Center in San Francisco.
