BRIGHTCOVE LAUNCHES INTO IPTV SPACE
HatTip to Mitch Ratcliffe. Jeremy Allaire is starting up a IPTV startup, Brightcove:
The theme of the "democratization of media" is one that goes all the way back to my origin interests in the Internet, and to some of the important ideas that framed and drove ColdFusion, and Allaire's other software franchises. We're onto the next phase of experiences on the Internet, and the much richer and expressive medium of video.
Funny timing since my column at AlwaysOn this week (thursday... almost every thursday, so check it out! please :) focuses on RSS, but touches upon the intersection of RSS and IPTV. I'm still not sold that IPTV will make a signficant dent in the U.S. television market, but globally I can see it become an industry that commands attention.
Anyway, check out Brightcove. Neatly designed site too, but no direct links to their press releases.
