The consumer generated media session was pretty interesting today. The speaker list included:
- Robert Levitan, CEO, Pando
- Itzak Cohen, CEO, ClipSync
- Chris O’Brien, CEO and co-founder, Motionbox
- Ted Murphy, CEO, PayPerPost
- Mark Brenner, CEO, vidavee
Pando offers a hybrid p2p distribution system, could be interesting, don’t know too much about it. They are offering licensing and distribution using a torrent like system to reduce costs.
ClipSync is something of a hybrid social video site that is centered around watching videos together. Sort of taking the physical interaction of a blockbuster night out of it, and making it distributed. I’m not convinced, but maybe I just have better things to do with my time than sit in front of my computer while my friends sit in front of theirs and watch a video together.
Motionbox is another clever online video editing tool. Eyespot is something like it that was out about a year ago.
Payperpost – Do I really need to explain this one? I’m curious as to what the long term strategy is with this one. They are a Florida startup too, so that makes me even more curious.
Vidavee – Another white label tool for publishing video content (similar products from videoegg and brightcove abound)
So whats the verdict? All in all it was an interesting topic, I had it running in the background so I can’t give too much of an opinion just yet on some of these products, but I wasn’t wowed by anything I hadn’t seen elsewhere before. Payperpost’s strategy could be the most far reaching of any of these companies.
