an international auction house in Dallas, Texas, will use video compression tools from for live sales over the Web.

Heritage will deploy a Spinnaker Professional Streaming Appliance from Inelt. The application is designed to deliver high-quality, compressed video over the Internet with little latency.

By using Inlet, Heritage said it will be able to provide information simultaneously to bidders in various locations.

"Inlet Technologies gives us the ability to extend our audience by offering a solution that just about every potential online auction-goer can access with their existing computer using software they likely already have installed,” said Brian Carpenter, who is director of information technology for Heritage.

“We tested many other solutions before choosing Inlet’s Spinnaker. It delivered the best low-latency performance, better even than products marketed as ‘low latency,’ was easily configurable, and the Spinnaker was less expensive, too,” he added.

Earlier this month, Inlet wrapped up a previously disclosed Series C funding round with $10 million.

Inlet disclosed in December that it had raised $3 million as part of the new round.

The privately backed firm said the new funds would be used to increase the size of its management, sales and engineering teams and also to expand its presence in Europe and Asia.

Capitol Broadcasting Co., the parent of Local Tech Wire, is among Inlet’s investors.
