Check out the video below. It is hosted by Vimeo. The video has a resolution of 1280 by 720 progressive if you click the Full-button, compared to the 720*576 (PAL) or 640*480 (NTSC) standard tv-resolutions we’ve had to look at since the 60’s. It’s by far the highest resolution streaming video service available today, and for free!
It’s quite obvious that television networks are going to have to move to the web pretty soon, because they’ll be able to ‘broadcast’ their stuff at a better quality, to a greater audience, for less money! Also, youtube should really watch out for sites like these, that could become pretty huge in a short amount of time, for good reasons!
Long live independents of the future!
