Today Larry Page announced Google Video Store in CES. Now we are looking forward for the next logical step: ad supported video downloads, in other words AdSense for Video.

Predictions for 2006

Posted in Conferences by Altan on the January 5th, 2006

Here is my predictions for 2006:

1) 2005 was the year of audio podcasting, 2006 will be the year of internet video. All sorts of video content (video podcasting, user generated media, viral videos, studio-professional content) aggregators and destination sites and producers will be the center of attention.

2) Subcription models won’t work and ad-supported models will be emerged.

3) From 2nd quarter, itunes users will be downloading ad supported version of “Lost” or “Desperate House Husbands” for your ipod. The ads will selected dynamically using your demographic information on itunes. (Gender, Age, Location, Recommendation Engine results using your past subscriptions and spending habits)

4) From 3rd quarter, you will be downloading ad supported version Full Screen-High Definition version of “Lost” or “Desperate House Wifes” to your Media Center. The video will be encoded in H.264 aka AVC. No DRM attached to the file, because users name shall be stamped at the bottom of screen.

5) From 4th quarter, you will be downloading ad supported version of HD “Personalized” ZNN News to your Media Center. The personalized version shall cover the areas of your interest and it will highlight your keywords, the scroll bars will contain the stock quotes of your portfolio.

Podvertiser team will be in CES 2006 with a busy meeting schedule.

Since CES 2006 will be a showcase for Internet Video, We will be introducing a one-of-a-kind service, world first Dynamic Ad Serving Technology for Downloadable Video, which seamlessly integrates streaming ads into downloadab le video files (mp4, wmv) on-fly. Thanks to Podvertiser’s state-of-art DSP technology, it can support variety range of video codecs, from ipod video format to Full-Screen HD movies with AVC (H264).

We’d like to meet with online video sites (flickers of video) that are offiering video downloads to discuss how to monetize their downloadable inventories.

As time permits we always like to meet/network with the people in digital media space.

We will be mostly attending to Digital Hollywood sessions, if we are not stuck with meetings. So there is a good possibility to catch us there.

Drop us a line to see if we can create a possibility to meet in CES 2006 !
