Brightcove's Indy Internet TV Service

A group of technology veterans including Macromedia Flash creator Jeremy Allaire, founder Scott Kurnit, and Lycos general counsel Andrew Feinberg have announced the launch of Brightcove, an Internet TV service designed to let video creators post their content online and set up means of generating compensation and syndication.

"We are committed to transforming the distribution of video and TV programming through the Internet, and we have assembled a team that has the skills and experience to make that vision a reality," said Brightcove founder and CEO Jeremy Allaire.
