On Monday at the NY Video 2.0 meeting, after the demos concluded, three popular NY venture capital partners took the stage to critique the demos they just watched from a venture capitalist perspective. While they were certainly a bit nice in front of the crowd, I thought you might be interested in their feedback.
The VC stars were: Chris Fralic from First Round Capital, Daniel Schultz from DFJ Gotham and Charlie Federman from Crossbar Capital.
Yesterday at the NY Video 2.0 meeting, Israeli-based BestTV presented their video portal application. The BestTV application is a middleware application — meaning agencies and companies can use the tool to create video portals on top of their current sites. They are currently in the Europe and Asian markets and are looking to expand into the U.S. They mainly work with Web shops.
One interesting note — presenter Oded Felled explained that the SaaS (software as a service) model works well in Europe but not in Asia. Asian companies want enterprise "one-time" cost models and not monthly plan services.
BestTV appears to compete in the same space with NY-based Magnify.net.
