    The growing online video ecosystem: Featuring VideoEgg, Dabble, CastTV, POSTRoller, Revision3

    Close to 300 video hosting, sharing and editing sites have been counted to date, serving hundreds of millions, if not billions, of videos a day. Video creation is also growing exponentially, and the availability of decent video recording capabilities in cell phones will only accelerate it. It therefore made to us to organize a session on the developing online video ecosystem, ranging from editing, hosting, advertising to search and aggregation. And to make the picture complete, we have also invited the video content production side of things. We expect, and actually wanted, that we’ll discuss topics broader than search per se - but as we’ll establish it, search and discovery mechanisms are fundamental enablers in the world of videos.

    To MC the event, we have also decided to innovate: we will have two moderators, who – amongst so many things – produce the “Om & Niall Podsessions” podcast. Om as in Om Malik and Niall as in Niall Kennedy, who are both actors and commentators of the evolving development of online media. Their recent podcast on the topic of video led to their leading this session.

    Will be joining us on October 10th for that session:

    Video Editing and Hosting: VideoEgg – Matt Sanchez
    Video Search: CastTV – Alex Vikati
    Video Bookmarking: Dabble – Mary Hodder
    Video Advertising Network: POSTRoller – Tod Sacerdoti
    Video Content Production: Revision3 – To be confirmed

    The event will take place at the Conference Center of the Microsoft Silicon Valley Campus (Building 1, 1065 La Avenida St., Mountain View) which has a capacity of 270 attendees. Note that we will only be able to accept sign-ups at the door based on the remaining capacity. This will also help us figuring out required food and beverages.
