Media Alliance, Inc.
The ‘Streaming Media Alliance’ is a democratic, non-profit networking
organization of Internet companies and individuals that embrace a
philosophy of ‘shared content’, and who want to work together on a
global basis to advance the cause of streaming and sBusiness.
[ ] An organizational meeting is planned at the New York Hilton Hotel and Towers to coincide with Streaming Media East, June 12 to 14, 2000. Click here if you plan to attend and would like details as they are available.
‘Shared content’ is good for the consumer because it means programming of individual interest can be accessed from portals and destination sites throughout the web, and throughout the world. It is good for member providers because viewership for quality content may be exponentially expanded, increasing advertising and sponsorship revenue potential. And ‘shared content’ is good for participating websites because it vastly expands the amount of topical, related and general content available for any member site’s programming.
May ‘Join the Revolution’
Streaming on the web has been tagged ‘The 3rd Broadcast Revolution’. You don’t have to be presently broadcasting to join the ‘Alliance’ and begin to stream the content of our Alliance members on your site. This is content which is freely available to you, whether you are a broadcaster or currently a non-broadcast website.
Premium and Restricted Content Excepted
in the Streaming Media Alliance
simply means you are stating your interest in providing selected
streaming content from your site to others and/or broadcasting the
streaming content provided by others on your site. You
will have the option of identifing as ‘Premium’ or ‘Restricted’
content which is not available.
‘Premium’ means there is a revenue
model attached to the content that must be negotiated before it is
available for other Alliance members.
‘Restricted’ means it is content which is not available for
redistribution due to ‘rights’ and other issues.
Alliance matures, additional wholly optional programs, including
syndication, advertising, e-Commerce, licensing, business services,
co-op promotional and other revenues opportunities will be introduced
which you may find beneficial.
We will keep our Members apprised of such opportunities available
via email and through postings on this site.
