+ - Bram Cohen Demoes BitTorrent Live: Cheap, Real-Time P2P Video Streaming->

Submitted by suraj.sun
suraj.sun (1348507) writes "At the SF MusicTech Summit, Bram Cohen, the author of the BitTorrent peer-to-peer sharing protocol, demoed his latest creation BitTorrent Live( http://live.bittorrent.com/ ). BitTorrent Live lets any content owner or publisher stream video to millions of people at good quality and with just a few seconds of latencyfor free or cheap. Sports, news events, simulcast TV shows, education, video conferencing, or uncensored war zone broadcasts — this technology will power the future of video.

“My goal is to kill off television” Cohen said during the SF MusicTech demo session I hosted. Afterwards he explained to me in rhyme, “Television’s physical infrastructure is inevitably going to go away, but TV as a mode of content consumption is here to stay.” Essentially, people love what they see on television, but want it accessible from the web.
