The Death of TV?

Some people in the internet video industry believe that classic,
"linear" TV will soon be a thing of the past. When a viewer can see what they want, where they
want and when they want, why would anyone bother watching linear TV,
where you can’t control the content? 

Mogulus gives users the power to create live, original
television programming, all on their own global broadcasting
channel.

The Mogulus studio transforms all of the expensive
20th century hardware of "TV" production into one simple, easy to use application.  Before
Mogulus, the production control room was one fixed location, and all
collaborators in the process had to be in the same building. Remote
cameras for communication were possible, but also expensive since they
required satellite feeds.

Now, with Mogulus,
the "production team" can be in locations scattered around the world, and
still work together as if they were in the same room. Satellite feeds
are obsolete, since remote cameras are now inexpensive and easy to use.

Still in Beta, Mogulus hopes to soon offer two exciting new types of interactivity:

  1. Viewers
    will be able to call their channel of choice, and participate in
    interviews and discussions using a web cam. Producers will have the
    ability to screen calls using the Mogulus studio switchboard, and can
    put a viewer live on the air
  2. Interactive
    graphics and hyperlinks,
    including the innovative use of polls & games

Basically, Mogulus can help you & your students become media moguls.

Thanks to Stacy Kasse for sharing this cool new project with us all!

Mogulus is currently accepting applications for their initial Beta run.  Why not apply (Better yet, how about planning an international broadcasting channel as a collaborative effort with another classroom overseas)?  The possibilities are endless!

    It’s true that mediums like Mogulus and blogTV.com are becoming more popular, but I disagree that it will be the death of TV. There are still many people out there who are too shy to participate in a live broadcast.
