What’s Dyyno been up to? It has signed up broadcasters for its spiffy Dyyno Universal Broadcaster; that’s what! dUb lets anyone begin streaming live events and more than three-quarters of those users have broadcast at least once.
Every year, the Miss California USA pageant attracts hundreds of contestants, with a winner usually being crowned on live, broadcast TV. But things are being done a little bit differently this year, with the entire three-day program streamed over the Internet, to TVs and mobile phones.
Online video startup Dyyno is rolling out a new universal broadcasting software that allows users to easily set up and live stream video presentations, games and movies online. The new Dyyno Universal Broadcaster also integrates with Justin.tv to tapping into its audience of 30 million users.
Dyyno announced today that it has rolled out a solution for customers that want to stream live or on-demand video to Roku’s broadband set-top box, allowing them to instantly build pages that appear in Dyyno’s Roku channel or build their own branded channels with its help.
Today on the Net: YouTube plans to roll out skippable ads later this year, World Cup interest has led to more than 1 million downloads of the MobiTV iPhone app and Dyyno is helping its customers to drive streaming video viewing through Facebook.
Certainly there are enough companies tackling live video streaming that all the available business models have been divvied up. But a new one — Dyyno — is trying to see if it can round up some alternatives.
Dyyno is well-pedigreed and it’s emerging from stealth with better customers and partners under its belt than many of its competitors. The company has its origins in Stanford’s electrical engineering program, and its CEO Raj Jaswa was previously president of the influential TiE Silicon Valley entrepreneurship group after taking multiple companies public. The company already powers live video gameplay broadcasts for Xfire (s VIA.B) (see screenshot above; viewers are chatting alongside live video of a game being played by another user) and has an integration agreement to upgrade the video in WebEx (s CSCO) teleconferences. Xfire pays Dyyno $1,000 per month plus ad revenue share, and WebEx users pay Dyyno an additional monthly rate. So it’s not your average fresh-out-of-stealth startup.
