Destiny Media Provides Live Streaming Video For Wikicamp in Chennai, India
Vancouver, BC, March 19, 2007 --- Destiny Media Technologies (DSNY: OTCBB) is pleased to announce that it sponsored the Wikicamp "unconference" in Chennai by providing live intranet streaming video services in the Clipstream™ video format.
Wikicamp is all about harnessing and understanding the power of Wikis. It is a one day event aimed to bring together the best minds from the Wiki/Internet space to talk about issues, opportunities and what the future and evolution of this valuable tool looks like. Crowd sourcing, Wisdom of crowds, User generated content and collaborative knowledge sharing have become the keywords of today's Internet. Wikicamp's aim is to demystify these terms.
The event is organized by the Knowledge Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that consists of passionate technologists, entrepreneurs, professionals and artisans across India who are driven by the need to organize world-class conferences, seminars and workshops. This is done in an effort to learn by sharing knowledge and in equipping India to prepare herself to compete in the global market.
Abhijit Bhattacharjee, CEO of Grus Media Works, a Clipstream™ representative based in Kolkata explained the advantages of a standards based, cross platform technology such as Cliptream™. "I spent time with Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia and we talked about the power of collaborative user created content. The event was a good opportunity to profile the advantages of Clipstream™. Since our technology is cross platform and native to 98% of web browsers, site owners are able to reach a much larger audience than with player based solutions which potentially expose site visitors to security risks."
