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.
Tonight at the NY Video 2.0 meeting, ekkoTV presented their service. The ekkoTV service is a flash-based video and audio chat that uses the major IM clients (AIM, Yahoo, Google, MSN) to create your buddy lists. Once you sign in to ekkoTV, you just click on the name of the person you’d like to video chat with and they get an invite. The invite goes to a Web page and the chat is on. It’s pretty slick looking. Appears to compete with other NY startups ooVoo (our coverage) and SeeToo (our coverage). I am not sure it competes with SeeToo but sure does compete with ooVoo.
Here’s their demo – the presenter moved around like crazy and I tried to stay with him!
