Heard about The Venice Project? It’s a funky little peer-to-peer IPTV venture, or, as they themselves describe it:
“We are in the process of launching a secure P2P streaming technology that allows content owners to bring TV-quality video and ease of use to a TV-sized audience mixed with all the wonders of the Internet. All content on The Venice platform is provided by content owners directly, and it’s all protected with the highest standard of encryption and we are working within the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) framework to ensure that it complies with appropriate content protection and ownership regulations.”
Now, one interesting thing – apart from the fact that P2P-IPTV is a nifty idea in itself – is that this project is rumoured to be the new project for the guys behind Skype. That would make some people sit up and take notice, I’m quite sure.
Anyone interested in betatesting The Venice Project, feel free to sign up – I just might do it myself, for the fun of it 🙂
