Video and rich media are fast becoming (and I would argue already are) a fundamental part of any online strategy for both startups and established New Media companies. That's the central theme of our upcoming FREE webinar, titled "Jumpstarting Online Video for Startups & New Media Companies," this week, on Thursday December 1st, from 10-11am PST.
Two major players in the online video space, Kaltura and Akamai (more about them below), will share some of the rich and broad strategies and solutions available for companies that hope to build new video applications and/or integrate video management & delivery into existing offerings.
