Piksel, the New York-based global provider of digital video services, sees a growing opportunity for publishers of various sizes to connect with consumers directly, via various IPTV scenarios including Roku, smart TV’s, and cable set-top boxes.

No longer limited by YouTube or other video portals, direct distribution to consumers is becoming viable, albeit with proper marketing support.
