Aftermixing at Brightcove

Today at the Adobe Engage event, Jeremy Allaire showed a little bit of Aftermix, an unreleased video mixing application from Brightcove. I'm very excited to see all of the posts and discussion on Aftermix and its possibilities, especially since I have my hand in the making of this Flex 2 application. Here's a roundup of what others are writing about Aftermix:

A GooTube lookout from David Berlind.

Jeff Barr writes about Aftermix, consumers, and the video-snacking culture.

Kristen Nicole suggests that Brightcove keeps quality first.

Everyone's favorite prolific blogger Ryan Stewart has a post.

Mashable has a post with a title we can all agree as hyperbolic, Brightcove Launching AfterMix - Pulls Ahead of YouTube?

James Governor's post asks Brightcove to remember the 'roots.

Everyone's favorite prolific blogger? I'm blushing. In all seriousness, Jeremy did an awesome job today. He should have brought along *the* Brian Deitte though.

Ha, yeah, I've never seen *the* before my name before. :)

Aftermix was also mentioned in today's Wall Street Journal, although not by name. In an article by Walt Mossberg:

"Another site watching is brightcove.com, from a company whose main business is selling the technology for doing Web videos to big media concerns, including Dow Jones & Co., the publisher of this newspaper. But brightcove also hosts Web video from average folks and small outfits. It will soon introduce a feature to allow average users to record video directly to its Web site and then mix it, legally, with clips licensed from big media companies."

And I'll just keep on commenting to myself here. Aftermix invites:

There's been a number of mentions since I last commented, but my favorite is the last 20 seconds of this video:

Also, don't miss the link in the "Update" above, as everyone can now use Aftermix without an invite.
