The future of streaming video is in live events, according
to Ustream CEO John Ham, who says that whereas on-demand video services
separate viewers, live events bring them together.

Ham spoke with Andy about the company’s
growth, its new suite for businesses, and the future. He said that producers of
live events should leverage them and bring them to a broader audience via live
streaming video.

Last week, Ustream unveiled its new Watershed platform, which
helps businesses to create and manage live interactive video content. Oracle and Sun
Microsystems are among Watershed's first customers, according to NewTeeVee.

Andy interviewed John at the Beet.TV Online Video Conference in San Francisco last month.  The event was carried live via Ustream.
