Streaming Media East 2008 - Lifecasting: The New Broadcasting Platform

I wanted to highlight a few more videos before moving on from Streaming Media East. This was one of the panel discussions I did watch briefy as live broadcast as several of the panelists streamed it live. I previously blogged about it here and it includes videos by Steve Garfield using Qik and Sarah (Meyers) Austin using Flixwagon.


From Streaming Media East final program:


Lifecasting: The New Broadcasting Platform



How did lifecasting videos get so hot? In the early days of television, live was the second choice, because of potential pitfalls, cost of production, and a host of other problems. And yet, in the world of internet video, lifecasting—using internet video to share moments of our lives or to broadcast personal events and happenings—is the new hot thing. With platforms like Kyte.tv, Zannel, Mogulus, Stickcam, and many others now available, lots of new options and opportunities exist. Come see some of the hot and upcoming mobile lifecasting options in action and learn if lifecasting will become just a fad or the next big thing.
