ABSTRACT
This article features San Francisco, California-based decentral.tv, a technology company included in "Red Herring's" top 100 list for 2007. Daniel Graf is the chief executive officer (CEO) of the company, which has 18 employees. Some of its key investors are Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Atomico, and Swisscom. It notes that Decentral.tv's kyte platform, a live online video and mobile boadcasting application, makes YouTube seem almost quaint. Kyte users can broadcast live slideshows or upload videos to their own site channel, take polls, and chat on the web or via mobile. The company has partnerships with Swisscom, Switzerland's largest telecommunications company, and music distributor IODA.
