Veoh Launches its P2P IPTV Peercasting Network

Veoh Networks, a start-up based in San Diego, announced the public availability and testing of its Veoh 1.0 P2P IPTV Peercasting Network. Veoh 1.0 allows video content producers to publish full-screen video to the network and lets consumers find the video content they are seeking.

Veoh is using its own "VeohNet" protocol as the basis of its video transport system. Veoh software, installed on consumers' PCs or Macs, creates a virtual television network that is able to distribute TV-quality, full-screen broadcast video to hundreds of millions of users with broadband Internet connections.

The company hopes motion picture studios, television networks, organizations and individuals will publish unlimited amounts of broadcast video content to the network, providing consumers with a wide choice in television programming and control over their viewing experience.

  • Veoh Networks was founded by Dmitry Shapiro, who is credited with creating P2P security software used by more than one million enterprise users today to manage and regulate applications like BitTorrent and Grokster. Its engineering team is led by Dr. Ted Dunning, who was previously the chief scientist at Musicmatch (now a division of Yahoo! Music), IDAnalytics and Aptex (an HNC company).
