I put this comment (see below) on Mike Arrington’s post about the video startups that never launch. Mike refers to CBS and other main media players. Watch out for the new media companies – the corporation.
There will be many new entrants in the video space that never make it. My company PodTech.net (www.PodTech.net) has been playing with video for sometime and our advertisers look at PodTech as the YouTube for corporate.
My prediction is that the definition of media company now includes corporations who need their new YouTube (like a Ch 9 that Scoble did at Microsoft). Ther was a story last week from ad age that talked about how P&G and Unilever have over 9 million uniques a month. In the new net model they are media companies now. Hint of things to come from PodTech.
