The future of streaming video is in live events, according to Ustream CEO John Ham, who says that whereas on-demand video services separate viewers, live events bring them together.
Ham spoke with Beet.TV’s Andy Plesser about the company’s growth, its new suite for businesses, and the future. He said that producers of live events should leverage them and bring them to a broader audience via live streaming video.
Ham also spoke about Ustream’s new Watershed platform, which helps businesses to create and manage live interactive video content. Current customers include Oracle, Sun Microsystems, and Sling Media.
