New integration brings our mobile live video broadcasting solutions to Screen9 clients

In our efforts to meet the ever increasing demand for publishing live and interactive video content online, we're now happy to announce that we've teamed up with online video platform provider Screen9 to offer Bambuser's leading mobile live video broadcasting services to Screen9 customers.

The integration will allow existing and new Screen9 customers to seamless publish Bambuser live videos via their Screen9 account (subsequently available for On Demand playback as well of course). Bambuser users can also register for a Screen9 account and enjoy the benefits of both services. This offers a unique opportunity for broadcasters to easily capture video anywhere, using a mobile phone or professional equipment, coupled with the rich functionality of a professional Online Video Platform (OVP). The integration will only be available for users with Bambuser Premium accounts.

We're looking forward to work with our friends at Screen9.

Jukka Mutanen's Kaivuriskaba

Do you remember Jukka Mutanen who drove a mini excavator through Finland? He became a Finnish hero doing so last summer and the event drove so much attention that he has now got a competition coming up called Kaivuriskaba starting on June 1st.

The competition has been arranged in 6 cities in Finland and invite participants to stay in Japanese Takeuchi mini-excavators as long as possible. The winner will get to drive it home (remember that the top speed is 4 km/h).

Now, the big question is how long the participants can stay on it. Is it a day, a week or a month? All participants are streamed with Bambuser and the audience can chat with the daredevils either live in the shopping malls or via web chat. Every competitor has an iPad, allowing them also to follow each other, making everything more exciting.

Don't waste more time, follow the hilarious Finns live at
