Viewers Talk Back to PBS’ Worldfocus

Former NBC News boss Neal Shapiro, who now heads up PBS flagship WNET in New York has announced a new feature for viewers of the 4-month-old nightly news program Worldfocus. “In addition to leaning back and watching the broadcast, we wanted to give people a chance to lean forward and get involved, join the discussion and share their opinions face-to-face through our ‘Talk to US’ feature.”

“Talk to Us” uses Kaltura which, as open source platform, enables any Web site to integrate video search, uploading, editing, and sharing.

BeetTV’s Andy Plesser has more on what Kaltura is and how media companies are using it.
