"Brightcove, Jeremy Allaire's Boston-based start up, came out of stealth today - and dropped it's former name - Vidmark. Jeremy and his brother are the brains behind coldfusion - and it's pretty clear from reading his blog and various reports that he's got a long term vision of making video as web friendly as text is today. This is good news for a bunch of reasons. While early players like Akimbo make it easy to get excited about IPTV, it is a closed subscription based network. Brightcove is 'customer facing" and seems more like it's poised to build out a big IPTV solution without a hardware base."
