User Producers or Producer-consumer ? February 22, 2006

Posted by Pontiff in Pontification.

Telecommunications carriers and service providers are currently planning and deploying access network upgrades to enable delivery of IPTV and other advanced services. In choosing which technologies to use, carriers must consider the growing trend toward user-created content. As consumer-level digital media technology evolves, a new generation of �producer-consumers� has been created, and these users increasingly wish to share their photos and video programs via web sites such as Shutterfly, Yahoo!, ClipShack, Vimeo, YouTube, Snapfish and Blip.tv.

Blueprint: Telco Triple Play

Either way its an interesting way to look at what’s happening now.  If a video User-Producer class emerges that is analogous the creativity found in blogs then cable networks had better start notice.
