ABSTRACT
The article features communications company Kasenna of Sunnyvale, California. Its chief executive officer (CEO) is Kumar Shah. Its key investors are Alloy Ventures, Artiman Ventures, AsiaTech Management, CIR Ventures, SGI, and U.S. Venture Partners. Kasenna makes middleware for the burgeoning Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) market, competing with cable companies" services to provide a variety of formats over broadband networks. Unlike competitor Microsoft, which uses proprietary middleware from Alcatel, Kasenna's middleware is HyperText Markup Language (HTML)-based, meaning that average Joes and big providers alike can program and customize it to create their own combinations of video-on-demand, broadcast, and Internet TV.
