Online Video Platform Summit is Two Weeks Away, November 18-19 in San Jose

The Online Video Platform Summit has been many months in the making and is now less than two weeks away. As part of promoting the event I'm kicking off a series of posts highlighting all of the sessions, speakers and companies participating in this industry first conference. While I generally don't reprint press releases verbatim, I thought I'd start with this one that just hit the news wire.

I also have several videos and interviews I've transcribed with a number of online video leaders I'm hoping to publish in the next week, including Jeremy Allaire, CEO and Chairman of Brightcove, Ron Yekutiel, CEO and Chairman of Kaltura and Ben Weinberger, CEO of Digitalsmiths. Jeremy will be presenting the keynote on day one of the summit and both Ron and Ben are featured speakers. Stay tuned for more coverage of the event over the next few weeks.
