Broad Holdings, LLC, provider of Castpost, one of the most popular video hosting sites for user-generated content, announced today at its Top Innovator Demo at OnHollywood 2006, that it will be launching two new products: Castpost Directory and Castpost Remote.

Castpost Remote allows users to chat, discuss, and share any web video, without needing to upload the video to a hosting site. The Remote empowers users to fully enjoy the interactive and social nature of online videos without hassles or copyright violations.

"The Top Innovator Demo program is a compelling environment for digital media companies to communicate how they plan to exploit the new opportunities in online entertainment and media," said Tony Perkins, organizer of OnHollywood 2006 and founder of AlwaysOn. "Our view is that the consumer is now leading the direction of technology innovation, and that the 'Instant Messaging Generation' is now firmly in charge, having taken the baton from the PC generation. These companies will be showcasing how their firms can contribute to this digital revolution. This is a chance to gain valuable feedback from leading industry insiders and meet peers and partners, as well as to attract the attention of the venture and press communities."
