    If you weren’t able to cast a vote for one of over 100 of the 2009 Video start-ups, sit back and take a look at the top start-up of 2009. On December 17th, at 6:30 pm @ the Columbia Business School, a winner will be crowned, via live SMS vote. Some of the competitors this year have really made a great initiative into the new age of online video and pushed the online video fever into new realms. Currently sitting atop the crowd:

    • Kaltura: With 35,100 publishers worldwide who have integrated Kaltura’s open source video platform, Kaltura is revolutionizing the industry by providing the first and only open source video solution stack.
    • Zixi: Zixi turns high-speed Internet and Intranet connections into Instant Video Delivery Networks (IVDN’s) with its Zync™ platform, making any website or corporate network a broadcasting hub with standard to HD capabilities.

    New media this, Hulu, Twitter, and oh yeah, this Social Networking thing that! Just in the past few days, it’s absolutely been amazing to StubleUpon, Mash, and forecast the next big thing. I don’t really think it’s incredibly hard to determine either, and it’s nothing that hasn’t already been discussed every day for the past 2 years.  The question is, “Is Video Ready yet?”

    Apparently, 2010 is supposed to be the year that “Video Advertising Gets Real.” What do you think? I mean @YouTube means 1 billion views per day! Sorenson, Kaltura, Brightcove, Ooyala, and some ex video management/syndication start-ups
