Quepasa recently ran a beta test with IboxTV out of Miami to present 24-hour streaming video on its homepage. “The arrangement with IboxTV was a cordial test, implementing their system on our homepage to accurately monitor their traffic. That test period has now ended," says CEO Robert Stearns.
Quepasa is looking to enter internet TV and web broadcasting, and will be rolling out a major fortification of its video capabilities in the next 90 days, according to Stearns.
Mr. Stearns points out that the long-awaited arrival of internet TV is at hand because of advances in the technology involved. Whereas before, online broadcasting was very costly due to the high amount of bandwidth needed to send out the signal to tens of thousands of users, the new technology allows the broadcaster to send out one signal that users can tap into, using less bandwidth, and therefore costing much less money to execute.
