The section will expand internet.com's daily news coverage with a new section devoted to the latest developments in sound, video and animation on the Internet.
"This is something of a milestone for streaming media technology companies," said internet.com editor-in-chief, Gus Venditto. "Coverage of Internet multimedia has always been part of InternetNews's mandate, but with bandwidth rising at a rapid rate, and the pace of development in the field exploding, streaming media developments require their own special section."
The new section will give InternetNews.com's staff additional space to cover developments from established leaders in the field, like Real Networks (Nasdaq: RNWK), Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) and Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), and the growing field of emerging companies, like Intervu (Nasdaq: ITVU), MP3.com (Nasdaq: MPPP), and Instant Video Technology (Nasdaq: IVDO).
Venditto emphasized that while the primary focus will be on the streaming technologies for delivering video and audio, the section will look closely at all forms of Internet multimedia, including businesses that are built around the popular MP3 format.
