It is with great excitement I’m finally blogging this. I’ve been sitting on it for about a week now waiting for all the pieces to come together and so here we finally are.
SDN TV, something many of you who know me, know that I am a big advocate for and always try to feed info into. You also know that I pushed hard to get embeded audio and video back into the blog system. Now though we’ve come to the next evolution.
Kyte.tv, has just become our newest addition of useful tools for the community. We’ve had a chat with the folks over at Kyte and Daniel their CEO welcomed the idea of us having our two channels there.
kyte allows anybody to create their own interactive TV channel on their website, blog, social network or mobile phone
With kyte, you create your own live TV shows and broadcast them on your own interactive channel, on your website, blog, social network or mobile phone. You can share your kyte channel with your friends and collaborate with them so that they can also be a part of your shows, by adding their own content, by voting and by chatting live with other viewers. With kyte, you can share your experiences live with the world and be the star, director and producer of your own live TV channel, wherever you are and however you want.
So now everyone here can do this as well. When you are watching either the BPX or SDN channels there is an option at the bottom to “Produce on this Channel” just click it (you’ll need a Kyte user which is free and a painless 30 seconds). Check out the Community TV page (if you are in IE you most likely will get a few pop ups about secure content – this is because of the fact we use HTTPS and they use HTTP it’s ok to continue) for more info and to watch the shows already there and live. You can also chat about the shows as well (including audio and/or video chat). See the FAQ for specific formats and such allowed.
Now if you create a show (we hope you do!) then please drag the “link” object to the working area and add your Business Card URL or your Community Profile link (please use http:// and not https:// in the link) as I did in my first show on the channel. At the end of each month we will review all the published shows (we will moderate your show so it won’t be published automatically) and then reward points for it, 40 is our thought right now but that can change based on what you produce.
You can also create your very own channel, just add the link to your profile and we can follow along as well there, but no points sorry!
So jump over and check it out and start your very own video blog through one of these channels today! Nothing fancy to get started at all!
