Streamup just got mentioned in Variety!

Yet while Twitch spent all of its resources turning itself into a popular brand with gamers, Ustream has focused on finding a far larger audience — usually more than 80 million viewers in a month, far more than the 50 million gamers that logged onto Twitch in July — namely clients looking to get the word out about a product or service whether it’s to their consumers at trade shows or employees through internal presentations.

But as it does mature, that will only increase the value of the companies that appear to be at the forefront.

In addition to Ustream, there’s Newtek Tricaster, Livestream, Monetize Media, Bit TV, Streamup, BlogTV and Kyte.
