Breaking: Blip.tv Integrates with YouTube for Syndication and Advertising

By on 07/28/2009 7:41 AM @beet_tv

Dina.blip.tv.event We are here at the Blip.tv news event and demo of the new web site, Mike Hudack, CEO and co-founder, said that producers on Blip.tv can syndicate videos directly to YouTube with Blip.tv managing advertising sales of these syndicated shows.

While Blip.tv has offered content creators the opportunity to
syndicate to number of sites, this is the first time it is integrated
with YouTube. Meaning, producers can publish directly to YouTube. 

Blip.tv sales executives can now sell ads into the shows
and split the revenue with a revenue share.  Presumably Blip.tv can sell certain shows at a higher advertsing rate normally sold by YouTube.

Blip.tv is also now uploading to Vimeo.

Here is the press release.

The company also announced a syndication deal with NBC Local, the new network of 10 super regional web sites.  Also, Blip.tv will be integrated into with  Roku, the device that converts Web video to television sets.

More to come, here's the story on TechCrunch.  Here's the story on CNET News.com

We are streaming live:

Beginning today (7.28) at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time, Blip.tv will hold a roundtable on online video with executives from YouTube, Verizon FiOS, TiVo, FreeWheel, TubeMogul, Roku and MediaVest.

Should be a very informative panel.  We are also told there will be some news from Blip.tv so stay tuned.

We be there doing some live blogging on this page.  We will also conduct a number of one-on-one interviews with the speakers and will be publishing them over the next few days.

If you want to grab the embed code for this event, you can get it on Blip's Livestream channel.

Andy Plesser, Managing Editor

Disclosure:  Blip.tv is the primary video distribution platform for Beet.TV and sells advertising on a non-exclusive basis.
