What is Hobnox?

by djsharpe on March 7, 2010

Hobnox has really caught my attention as of late and it seems to be in the last stages of beta testing. I was lucky enough to receive a beta invite to test out and play around. From their FAQ it states the following “Hobnox is an international platform for audiovisual culture and creativity. Hobnox connects Web.TV and modern community infrastructures with new online technologies. Hobnox promotes and presents creative work of all kind, protects copyrights and provides fair marketing structures.”

They also state in their FAQ that Hobnox isn’t just another video portal, it’s much more than that: it’s a network for free audiovisual culture and zeitgeist. On Hobnox.com, creatives are to find what they need for their production, presentation, collaboration, protection and marketing of their own work – all as Open Source. Hobnox offers a stage and the means necessary for artists to present themselves. Also, At the time of this writing Hobnox is free of charge but they do have premium accounts coming soon which will provide more storage for projects, or a higher maximum number of users for the Hobnox Livetool.

I personally have had access to this for a few weeks and have slowly been digging into it when time permits and find it to be a very interesting concept. I for one will be keeping my eye on them and expect to see some big things from them in the near future.

I suggest taking a minute and applying for a beta acount and checking it out for yourself. You can apply here: Hobnox sign up.
