POPcast to Integrate Services into InfoSpace's Broadband PlatformVideo Services Tap the Power of Broadband Connections (October 04, 2001)
POPcast plans to integrate its automated video services with InfoSpace's broadband PC platform by the end of the year and offer to broadband DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) and cable modem service providers.
POPcast will integrate three primary broadband-enabling technologies, which are subscription and/or usage-based, and integrated into InfoSpace's broadband platform:
-- VideoMail: Web-based application that allows users to create video within a Web environment. It allows users to record, play back and send media via e-mail, MSN Messenger or POPcast's Web-based video management environment. The application sends video content as e-mail via a media server so viewers can access it with a URL, rather than a file attachment.
-- VideoCreate: Standalone easy-to-use application that allows users to capture video and import other media types such as audio, text, music and graphics to create personalized videos. Users upload video to the network or store video locally (project files), and have the ability to invite viewers to watch video content via e-mail or the Web.
-- VideoLive: Standalone application that allows users to stream media live from PC-to-PC or wireless devices, such as PDAs. Users can broadcast peer-to-peer or expand viewer capacity by automatically reserving and purchasing Bandwidth-On-Demands through the application or Web environment. Users can also schedule a pay-per-view event by charging their viewers a "ticket" price to access their stream.
