    I was only there for the Meetup and not for the entire Streaming Media East event, but the Meetup was great in terms of presentations. I did get the feeling that many people had been in the Hilton all day and seemed more keen on going home than staying for the end of the presentation, though I also have to take some of the blame for not arriving in time for the 5:30-6:30 networking opportunity. It was good overall though and NY Video did a (per usual) great job of bringing in interesting presentations and keeping everyone as engaged as possible.

    I've been going to a number of the meetings for about a year now.

    My beef with this one is that there was a lot of confusion with the start time. I'm not the only one because there were at least a dozen of us in the room expecting it to start at 530 when it didn't start til 6PM.

    I also thought the last presenter was awful.

    Unfortunately, I was unable to make the newtorking part of the event since I work until 5:30pm. The presenters were very informative with great feedback from the audience. I would hope that the time of the event would be pushed back to around 6:30pm to give me a chance to benefit from everything the meetup has to offer. I look forward to future NY Video meetups!
