My End Goal:  To finalize "content" for a panel/event..... What is the
impact of video on the future of the Internet?

Our speakers will be:  Photobucket, Yahoo, Google and one
other......(Truveo, iFilm)

Our Content Draft 1.0:
In just months, online video has exploded from curiosity to an
integral part of the Web.  Last month, Youtube, barely a year old,
attracted nearly 30 million unique US visitors, while Photobucket
served __ million.
While those numbers are relatively insignificant when compared with
network television viewership, widespread video sharing is just
getting started.
Marketers who had just started looking into podcasting now need to
consider online video as the newest marketing channel.
Most of the videos being shared online are not full-length features.
Rather, these clips fall into three broad categories:
?	Home grown & Amateur Clips
?	Montage Videos
?	Clips of TV Shows

So, the impact of video on the Internet is.....  

Question - To finish this content write-up.....What is/ will be the
impact of video on the Internet? (will it have the impact that search
engines had on Internet usage? Or is it jsut a gimmick?)

BBC unveils big online revamp

The broadcaster is lining up some major changes as it approaches "the
digital age," including the growth of user-generated content and an
emphasis on new distribution channels such as mobile phones and iPods.

Thompson also revealed that as part of the Creative Future strategy,
the BBC is less than five years away from allowing viewers to create
"drag and drop" personalized TV and radio stations.

The BBC's on-demand service, which allows viewers to download programs
broadcast within the last seven days, will be renamed BBC i-player. It
also will start to open up its archive and put it online.

YouTube: Too rough for advertisers?

Madison Avenue is keeping a close eye on what kind of advertising
model the top player in the burgeoning market will adopt. YouTube has
successfully attracted a large following by becoming the master of
ceremonies for an Internet variety show that offers a stage to
homemade-movie makers. To cash in, the company has set its sights
squarely on the $12.5 billion online advertising market.

User-generated video sites have two things going for them, said Gary
Stein, director of strategy at Ammo Marketing in San Francisco. First,
these sites are attracting a large and hotly sought-after audience:
males between the ages of 18 and 34.

The upload sites also are banking on video, which is a proven vehicle
for delivering ads and one that advertisers understand after a
decades-long relationship with TV.

The Web: Webcasting a 'viable' secondary market

Though IPTV -- Internet Protocol Television -- is definitely coming of
age, and the broadband audience may "soon" rival that of traditional
television, experts believe that there are some definite technical
limitations to the medium right now.

In addition to the technical and usability issues, the deal could also
harm the company's relationship with key partners. Researchers at
Strategy Analytics caution that webcasting will evolve into a
"valuable secondary platform" for Disney and other TV programmers, but
that consumers will continue to rely on cable and satellite service
providers as their primary source of programming.

Internet Video-Cable Threat?
Joseph Laszlo | April 14, 2006, 01:28 PM

Last time I blogged about this, the Internet video threat to
established video distribution channels was the hosting and delivery
of user-created video content. While YouTube provides naughty fun, I'm
still skeptical that it'll ever sub for cable TV

Now the story's shifted a bit. This week I had a conversation with
Maggie Reardon at CNET for her piece on how disintermediation efforts
by Disney, Viacom, and pretty much every other major media company
(delivering programs direct to viewers via the Net) threaten cable and
the nascent telco IPTV offerings.

StreamerNet(R) Launches Version 3.0 of Flagship Mobile Video
Producer(SM) for Simplified Audio/Video Streaming
April 26, 2006 (12:45 PM EST)

"The future of multimedia communication," added Atchison, "is moving
quickly toward models where individuals will primarily be streaming
content to micro-communities of content specific, highly interested
viewers. These are the areas in which StreamerNet has concentrated its
research, intellectual property and technology developments."

"Version 3.0 truly sets StreamerNet apart in the market, particularly
the option for the inexperienced business user to create easy product
video ads," stated David D. Hornbeck, owner of BoskoWood Unfinished
Furniture in Nags Head, NC. "We were looking for a comprehensive
streaming solution that would not only let us showcase our offerings
better on eBay but also enhance our traditional online marketing
through our Web site. StreamerNet technology has enhanced our customer
service tremendously."
