Ustream

Video is another sector of the industry with much growth potential. Look at Ustream, a service that broadcasts live programs like boxing matches, presidential debates, and red carpet events to viewers in the United States, Japan, and Korea. The company has raised $60.5 million to date, from Jeff Clavier, Infinity Venture Partners, SoftBank Capital, and others. Ustream integrated with Facebook Timeline in April and lets users stream events on television sets, computers, and mobile devices.
