The race for the eyeball time

April 21, 2007 at 7:41 am Leave a comment

Some people thought that Internet video is already matured after Google bought YouTube. The opposite is true. Internet video is in an early phase in it’s life cycle. As matter of fact Internet video portals are in direct competition with TV. An Internet video portal has to be seen in the context of the convergence of Internet, TV and telecommunication. The race for the eyeball time has just begun and I am excited to participate in it.

That’s the reason why I invested in VideoTube. VideoTube is positioned as an independent Internet video portal, which has a constant growing user base as well as a proven and solid technology. The founders Rudi Singer and Christof Baumgärtner are real Internet video and IP-TV veterans. They developed the first IP video technology 10 years ago and supported various companies with their Internet video.

Due to the fact that all other German Internet video portals are not independent from media companies or TV stations I am more than convinced that VideoTube will keep its positioning. Because of the independent situation VideoTube is a perfect partner for co-operations with various TV-channels and media companies.
