SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14 /CNW/ -- Mogulus, a New York-based internet
startup, unveiled a groundbreaking live streaming platform today that enables
anyone with a computer, a web-cam and a high speed connection to broadcast
like a multi-million dollar television station.
"To make compelling live user generated content, you need powerful
production tools. With Mogulus, producers can now collaborate in real time and
make high quality live television shows on the internet," said Max Haot,
Founder/CEO of Mogulus.
Om Malik, editor-in-chief of GigaOM and organizer of NewTeeVee Live, said
"Mogulus is a great partner for broadcasting live TV on the Web." In addition
to being a featured platform at NewTeeVee Live, Mogulus will be streaming the
event live at www.live.newteevee.com.
Mogulus, in private beta for the past four months, is one of the most
popular live streaming applications in Internet history. More than 17,000
producers with beta access created more than 18,000 live 24/7 channels and
streamed more than 12 million unique viewer minutes a month, according to
Mogulus (www.mogulus.com) enables producers to:
(*) Run scheduled 24/7 broadcasting playlists, where everyone watching sees
the same content and can chat about it, while the "channel owner" has
full control -- they can interrupt and go live at any time
(*) Incorporate broadcast graphics (ticker, bug, bumpers, ...) into your
channel, just like the major television networks
(*) Collaborate in real time with multiple producers, and control the same
channel at the same time from anywhere in the world with your team.
(*) Mix between multiple live cameras located anywhere in the world and
upload or import videos from the web with a simple drag and drop
All of these capabilities are in the Mogulus Studio application (Adobe
Flash). The Mogulus Player is a widget, which producers can embed and
distribute on any websites on the internet, including Facebook.
Unlike Joost, Brightcove, BlipTV and other online video sites, Mogulus is
betting on the "linear TV model," where consumers on the internet tune in and
surf live or scheduled channels just like they do in their living room with
"While video on demand satisfies our entertainment snacking, sometimes we
just want to tune in to a channel, be entertained, and not make choices about
the next thing to watch -- it also creates a social experience as we are all
watching the same content at the same time and we can chat about it," Haot
Mogulus also unveiled its Mogulus Grid at the NewTeeVee event.
The Mogulus Grid allows you to watch 26 Mogulus Live channels and chat
with all of the other viewers. You can also search and browse for channels
using the program guide if the top 26 channel selections are not what you
"While in private beta, Mogulus's audience has grown exclusively through
embedded Mogulus player widgets. By opening the service to anybody and
providing a unique viewer portal, we anticipate our viewer growth and producer
adoption to rapidly accelerate," Haot said.
Mogulus also plans to introduce in-stream adverts in the coming months,
enabling Madison Avenue to reach viewers of live streaming TV on the Web for
the first time. Mogulus will offer producers both an ad-free "premium" service
(with a subscription fee) and a free "advert" version of the Mogulus platform.
