Daniel Graf was at Nokia HQ here in Espoo today to demo his Kyte.tv. The San Francisco-based mobile video sharing company announced on June 12 that it had received funding from Nokia’s investment arm, Nokia Growth Partners.
Pretty interesting stuff. I’m going to set up an account and try it out here on my blog. At the same time, I’ll try and get a feel for Kyte’s suitability for intranet video sharing purposes.
Daniel calls it "mobile socialcasting". Kyte’s concept of distributed video channels, rather than stand-alone video clips, seems quite powerful. A video channel is immediately updated with the latest video that its creator posts to it. This can be done as least as easily from an S60 mobile phone as from a PC.
The content can be made more conversational and response-provoking by dragging-and-dropping interactivity modules
Feedback is also very immediate: viewers can reply instantly by text chat, video, still images, or audio clips.
