Zulu Broadcasting's Video Vamoose
"The consumer-oriented nature of Video Vamoose lets everyone become a Webcaster without having to be a computer genius," said Nicole Pennell, vice president of Broadcasting services for Zulu, in a prepared statement.
Zulu offers several channels for customers to broadcast events like weddings, sports events, election coverage, and company communications. Customers can broadcast video to the entire Web population or to a limited, pre-selected group. Live event broadcasting costs $500 per event, while multicast delivery (delivery to preselected locations) goes for $5,000 per event.
All of the event packages include the lease of the Video Vamoose Webcasting device; the product is available for rent as a stand-alone retail product. Device pricing was not immediately available.
