DEMO 08 Day One Roundup


Though it feels like DEMO just had a conference, this week the high-powered launchpad is back, showcasing another 77 products. Can’t be there in person? Check out the live video stream of the event and read our roundup of online video news and launches from the first day. Among the unveilings so far:

Squidcast, a P2P service that allows you to share high-definition video and other content over the web for free.

Asankya‘s Hypermesh technology, which is also angling for the HD content delivery market, but instead optimizes traffic over existing Internet protocols to reduce buffering, pixelation and lengthy download issues.

Eyealike, which uses visual-based search to reduce copyright theft.

Movial has unveiled its Social Communicator, a software application that allows people to share content like video with mobile devices, PCs and set-top boxes.

Visible Measures launched its VisibleSuite, which helps publishers and advertisers measure how audiences find, view, interact and share videos. And another video analytics company, TubeMogul, also launched paid video publishers’ tools at the conference (our extended coverage). Update: full story here.

BitGravity announced a Flash-based service to enable high-resolution live broadcasting of content for allegedly half the current price.

All this stuff too stodgy and, well, not cool enough for you? Then you’ll dig, which lets you pay for video guitar tutorials from your favorite guitar gods, like Rush’s Alex Lifeson, or Graham Nash.
