Eighteen months ago, the online video platform space was largely dominated by only a handful of providers in the industry. But today, with over two dozen companies now providing services to the market, the online video platform space is hotter than ever. We've seen Brightcove become profitable, Ooyala able to raise money in a bad economy, KIT digital making acquisitions and offerings like those from Kaltura based on open-source technology, coming to the market. The online video platform space is changing, services are evolving and more importantly, the business is maturing.
This was the main reason why StreamingMedia.com decided earlier in the year to dedicate two whole days to the subject and launch the Online Video Platform Summit at the Streaming Media West show in November. The entire event has been organized to show content owners how to use video management platforms, the value they provide and demonstrate successful real-world use cases. The event also brings together nearly every vendor in the online video platform space and gives attendees the ability to see many of these platforms in action. You can see the agenda here.
We are very pleased to announce, and would like to thank, the following companies who are involved in the show as sponsors, speakers or presenters: Adap.tv, Adobe, Akamai, Artivision, Brightcove, Datpresenter, Delve, Digitalsmiths, Endavo, EveryZing, Fliqz, Kaltura, KickApps, KIT digital, Kyte, LongTail Video, Multicast, Ooyala, Origin Digital, Reality Digital, Sorenson Media, Truveo, TubeMogul, Twistage, Veeple, Visible Measures, VMIX, voped and YuMe.
The summit has been designed to help organizations of all types, not just those for whom video is their core business. Come join video publishers of all types and sizes as well as the industry and see first-hand how these platforms work, what they cost and the impact they can have on your business.
As a thank you to my blog readers, I'm offering everyone the ability to register before October 30th for only $495, using my personal discount code of DRF1, which is $200 off the price to attend.
