Kyte, the popular video streaming platform, announced a new product tonight: branded mobile web destinations. These new sites will allow brands to easily create and monetize their own video-enabled sites for mobile devices.
As we reported earlier this year, Kyte is slowly moving away from user-generated content and is focusing on large brands and content producers instead. Among the launch partners for the new branded mobile sites are two Interscope recording artists: Lady Gaga and the All-American Rejects.
These new brand-specific mobile sites are now also available for all of Kyte's partners.
One of the most interesting aspects of Kyte's new product is that these mobile sites will display the right type of video for your mobile devices, including QuickTime videos for the iPhone. Users will also be able to rate and comment on shows.
