iTVCon - Starts Next Monday! Check Out the Full Speaker Lineup

Internet Video Conference Keynote: "Big Media and the Internet Effect" by Akamai's Tim Napoleon

Your video on the Internet: just how realistic is it? What about the major networks, how are they navigating the unknown waters of online video distribution? Is making HD Video for the Web a reality? How can companies monetize their Internet video audiences?

These are just a handful of the hundreds of key questions being addressed by the speaker faculty in just over two weeks' time at iTVCon - Internet Video Conference & Expo..

Obviosuly "Internet video" can refer to streaming video from realtime broadcasts, streaming archival material or downloading video files for watching later, all of which are viewed on the computer. Does it also refer to watching movies and other TV programs on a regular TV set that are coming from the Internet rather than over the air or from cable and satellite companies?

Do the major broadcasters really see Internet video as "TV on the Web"?

vid$$guy 10/26/07 12:33:50 AM EDT

Mark Cuban recently wrote: Riddle me this: If the Internet is the ultimate DVR for video, will advertisers put comparable pricing parameters on internet video that they are trying to put on TV DVR commercial viewing ?

If they do, and only pay for videos viewed within 3 days of the video being posted, won't that put a huge crimp in the internet video business?

Advertisers have growing leverage. It will be interesting to see how they use it.
