Real time conversations are a constant on social media thanks to FaceBook and Twitter.
-- -- -- -- this talk one step further connecting users on its social video platform to chat face to face on the wet.
And with eleven million dollars in funding Jeff Fuller startup is already being picked up by major media outlets including ESPN the Wall Street Journal.
And and TV.
Jeff thank you very much for coming.
Thank you for me since precast essentially meet its users TV and radio producers and sometimes Talking Heads in their own right he tell me a little bit about how it works.
-- those recast the social media platform that connects people through face to face conversation.
To get -- about -- says sort of part Skype in part YouTube we allow people to have face to face interaction writing a web browser.
And you can do -- -- open -- public setting.
What other people can come discover your conversations and join conversations where you can do it privately where you may just be with a small group of friends or family of colleagues.
And Google -- is your biggest competition.
Similar platform can you tell me what makes you stand apart from them -- so there's a couple of key differentiators between spree casting -- it's.
They're the ones that we that we focus on most that we think are -- advantages for spring cast her first.
Recast as cross platform meaning that we work with all the different social networks like FaceBook Twitter and Google+ -- game.
You can use your FaceBook account your Twitter account to create an account -- precast you can invite your FaceBook friends.
So we do a lot of things to -- -- work.
With all the social networks where is Google hangouts is very much silos -- Google+ was very much a feature of Google+ and so they don't make it easy to to use different social networks -- owned -- -- and other social network that's the first.
The second difference is that we have a lot more interactivity -- -- so when you're not on camera on its -- you can request to -- on camera you can submit videos -- images from Flickr -- -- to -- YouTube video.
Slide decks so there's a lot of things you can do when you're not on camera -- in Iraq to be part of the conversation.
Whereas with -- if you're not on camera.
-- -- just passively watching to a YouTube players and there's no interactivity for those votes as -- is more all encompassing.
It's much more interactive it's much more interactive for the entire audience.
Posted just the folks like camera and the third difference is that -- controls we have a lot of capability.
For the creators precast.
-- really control the entire outlook who's on camera and when he put people on camera tick people off camera.
Site with extraordinary you want to display when you create this -- really have control over the entire thing.
It's -- casts players have already been vetted by the Wall Street Journal on there web saint by ESPN and I and TV right.
That's right -- -- among others but those are three great examples of Canada big names that some of the names are -- -- -- to create content to engage their audiences in these conversations so what's next for the company doing anything to enhance the experience for those platforms to embed your player.
Yeah I mean what we we we listen to those folks a lot in Europe big media partners and how they're using -- cast to.
Engage their audience everybody's looking for ways to not only grow their audience but also -- -- audience and people.
From the media business have seen it.
There audiences you.
Tools like FaceBook and Twitter in Iraq to share while they're watching TB -- while they're consuming content.
And so we're creating a platform.
That allows these media companies to engage with their audience and sharing.
Connect in very interactive ways vs TV which -- historically been very much a one way platform when you sit back and you watch TV from your living room.
In a very sort of one way passive kind of viewing experience we're trying to turn that into more interaction with the audience -- really interact with the viewing experience.
And -- at stub -- you founded stub -- which was acquired by today in 2007.
He said acquisition came a little bit too soon right.
Why is that in what would you have done differently.
Yeah you know I think in retrospect of what they're talking -- you know the yes stub -- at work today much more -- it was sold to -- and that's you know that's I think a testament to eBay's management of the company that got really good for job growing the business and management company.
And so my comment was merely you know if if I had if I had not sold -- -- and I had.
Held onto it for another few years it may have been worth a lot more money because the company was still growing rapidly and yet still a rapid.
Rapid pace of growth now it's huge today detailing everyone uses that for tickets house -- exactly so it's you know it's pretty -- it's pretty big company today -- you know as far as the US -- and -- Sports concerts and theater it's it's a pretty big business and -- it was a lot of fun building company.
You know I don't have any regrets.
But you know but as -- said if if if I held onto -- longer it may have been larger acquisitions and would you be open to an acquisition spree -- -- future.
Well you know I think it's it's very early for us right now we year you know we're a young company the product's been.
Available publicly for just about -- -- half so.
I think that's not something we're thinking about right now all we've got a long way to go we have a lot of big ideas that we execute that take us you know.
-- and even years to attempt to to get there and so.
We've got we've got some work to -- before we think about you know what what -- -- -- it would pursue but right now we've got them.
Will best of luck to you it's precast thank you for coming in thanks very much Kate breakup and from New York keep Rogers foxbusiness.com.
