Columbia's YouTube

We often get the feeling there are a lot of cool things going on in Howard's tech community, but everyone is so darn shy about letting the world now.

It was only by accident we came across this release from a local company trying to innovate in the YouTube space.

The Columbia company is called VioSync and its product is dubbed TubeLinx. According to the company, TubeLinx allows users to:

-- View two media streams side-by-side in Multi-Sync mode;
-- Comment on and toggle to a point-in-time or a selected segments of a
given media stream;
-- Attach synchronized comments to media in a wide range of forms,
-- Text, video, as well as audio streams that are instantly recorded
or pre-recorded;
-- Dynamic links to other media segments or other internal or external
-- On-the-media Marking that permits the user to frame the point of
interest within the played media screen.

Pretty clever. But it sounds like Gaith Abdo, the president of VioSync, needs to work on his elevator speech.

"It's almost impossible to explain," Abdo says in a release, "but play it for 10 minutes and you'll get really excited."

Kinda like Tivo, we guess.

Here's how the company explains who it is:

VioSync LLC was established in 2006 to provide the platform and infrastructure for the TubeLinx, said Gaith Abdo who is the president and CEO of Intecorp, which was founded in 1999 headquartered in the NeoTech Center in Howard County, Maryland. The company offers consulting services in network engineering, e-mail systems, Internet and ecommerce, security, application development, data warehousing, help desk support and training. Intecorp has an extensive number of clients, including the FDA, IRS, and U.S. Navy, and recently won a multi-million contract for website support and development from the U.S. Department of Labor.
