ABSTRACT
This article features Seattle, Washington-based GridNetworks, a technology company included in "Red Herring's" top 100 list for 2007. Jeff Payne is the chief executive officer (CEO) of the company, which has 30 employees. GridNetworks offers a solution to two problems with the transmission of online video, low quality and high price. The company has developed a software-based distribution service for content owners, which allows them to deliver streaming digital videodisc (DVD)-quality movies to consumers' computers and big television (TV) screens via a computer video card. The challenge now is to convince video distributors about the product, which competes with other video delivery technologies from Kontiki, Move Networks, and Akamai.
