MIPCube Looking For Startups Disrupting The Video Market

from the go-disrupt dept

For a few years now, we’ve been attending and/or partnering with Midem, the big music industry conference. The same folks are now also doing MIPCube, a similar conference focusing on TV and video. We’re partnering with them on their MIPCube Labs event, similar to the equivalent program at Midem, where a bunch of startups get to present their disruptive ideas, and the ones voted the best by a panel of judges will win some awards. If you’re involved in an innovative or disruptive startup that is changing the face of video, TV or film, you should apply to take part — and hurry up since you have to apply by February 29th (I know that link says the 20th, but it’s been extended!):

MIPCube Lab is the only start-up competition to be tightly integrated into the TV industry and its future. It provides a global platform for start-ups to get feedback from the most powerful and innovative decision makers in the TV business and obtain funding from the finance community.

Having seen the Midem Labs competition evolve and grow over the years, and seen lots of great companies present through there (including folks like Kickstarter and SoundCloud), these events can be really worthwhile for startups, so check it out.

Something to keep an eye on

The mere fact that it’s taking place at Cannes gives this event a lot of credibility.

If there’s an part of the entertainment biz that needs so shaking up, some new ideas and ways of doing things it’s the video, movie and tv part. They all seem mired in repeating or self copying stories, styles and ways of shooting shows.

I wish then all luck and I’m anxious to see who wins this competition,

Can I give youone to pass on..?

Take red box…
Instead of RENTING those DVDS…
SELL them at $5 each…NO RETURN.

Do the same with MUSIC…BURN IT AND GIVE IT, $5.

But also add….
That install them in compressed mode, On larger format HD or Blue ray..in the 100000’s…on each machine.
NOT the current/wild/less then EVERYTHING format.
Then ask the customer WHAT form they want..
and what device..iphone, DVD, computer, Android…

It takes the data, transcribes it to the format and device…BURNS it, and GIVES it to the person for $5.
