09 November 2007: At this prestigious, invitation only event hosted by HSH Prince Albert II, Matteo Berlucchi (CEO Skinkers) will showcase Livestation: the first global broadcast platform for the delivery of live interactive TV and radio over the Internet.

Matteo will also be a panelist on the session entitled “Video 2.0: The Revolution Will Be Televised" where he will discuss his prediction as to why the Internet will play a fundamental role in interactive broadcasting.

Livestation, built on unique peer-to-peer technology acquired from Microsoft Research, will allow broadcasters to distribute live audio and video to a potentially unlimited audience of broadband connected consumers at a much reduced cost. Currently in technical trial, Livestation is due to launch in 2008.
