Healthy content: MDiTV looks to bring video content about your health to the Web
Today, with YouTube and Hulu and Netflix and thousands of other sites, we’ve grown very used to consuming our entertainment online. Because of that, the TV has become less and less of a modern necessity. But what about educational content? Content that’s actually good for us? Well, for all the promise of the Web, it seems that a great deal of that type of content still remains relegated to television and traditional broadcast.
Until now. Introducing Portland-based MDiTV, your new online resource for health information.
What’s MDiTV you ask?
Medical Doctor Internet Television (MDiTV) is… the first health sciences media network to exclusively use an Internet-based approach to bring relevant content to medical professionals and general consumers. MDiTV can be accessed wherever an Internet connection is available and can broadcast over your computer, television, or smartphone. The website will update often and use a unique social interface for the health care community to interact and share information.
And they’re not going to stop there.
“MDiTV will soon offer applications for iPhones, iPads, other smartphones, and Internet supported TV, allowing viewers more abundant access to live and on demand rich media programming,” said Robert Lazzara, MD, founder and CEO of MDiTV, in a press release.
Now, it’s accessible to you. With a big beautiful site.
One downside was that I couldn’t really find a way to easily embed their video. Or I would have shared it with you. And while they offer some nice social features for sharing, it’s that embedding that seems like it might curtail their growth as the go-to resource for medical news and health education.
