You’ve arrived at the newest member of the GigaOM family, NewTeeVee.com. We aim to cover online video from end to end and front to back. We’ll point you to hot startups, hot videos, hot pipes — tracing the talent, money, code, and data across the network. We’ll combine the signature GigaOM skepticism with a healthy sense of wonder for all the cool stuff that’s going on out there. And lots and lots of pictures and video.

Regular voices from the OMpire (don’t tell him I said that) will be visiting, with pieces from Katie Fehrenbacher on mobile video and Om Malik on telecoms, television, and underlying technologies.

We’re bringing back funnyman Jackson West to write about P2P and TV, and adding IP communications, telecom, broadband, and VoIP expert Paul Kapustka (formerly of Advanced IP Pipeline and pulvermedia). You’ll also see posts from Russell Heimlich of DVGuru and Russell Shaw
of ZDNet and many other web publications.

It’s a big team, but I (Liz Gannes) will be focusing most of my efforts on wrangling and creating NewTeeVee content. You can hit me up with any tips, breaking news, pitches, or must-see videos by emailing tips@newteevee.com.

So please, make yourselves comfortable. We hope you stay tuned.

For those asking for actual video, I wanted to say a few words.

More video is definitely in the plans, and we’ll try to keep adding it every day. I’m a bit camera-shy myself, but I hear ya.

In the meantime, I’ve been thinking of the process of explaining video in the same way I would try to unpackage a geeky startup — using the accessibility of words to give prospective users/viewers an introductory idea of what’s going on. Of course, the actual product or video is the final destination for readers who become intrigued.

But yeah, more video, more video, more video.

Whoa!

Great minds think alike! However, I beat you by four days! Ha!

I have also been enamored by on-line video, so much, that I decided to make a blog about video too. However, my blog is videos I choose. I find the good stuff and wrap it up in a post that highlights 30 minutes of video I like.

Anyway, check it out. I think I have “good taste” and can pick entertaining videos. What do you think?

It sounds great, but I hope to see in future that there is criticism of that which is less than good. In the usual hysterical worship of “new” on the net people tend to forget that what is new is not necessarily good.

Welcome to lighting up the IP world of new communications media. I hope you will be a new radar for talent and have reporters unknown to help chart the new world.

Om, what are you trying to prove? >> Regular voices from the OMpire (don’t tell him I said that) will be visiting, with pieces from Katie Fehrenbacher on mobile video and Om Malik on telecoms, television, and underlying technologies.
