Jon Stewart And HBO Partnership Promises New Video Tech


Jon Stewart is coming out of retirement for one last job. Well, at least his latest job. After retiring from the helm of The Daily Show this past August, Stewart is back, and has just signed a deal with HBO for a four year term.

That's neat, but not that surprising. What is interesting is how he has planned his comeback. Instead of taking up another hosting gig, Stewart will produce "short-form digital content" that will be updated on HBO's digital platforms (websites, streaming services, etc) using a yet-to-be-specified technology to produce short posts multiple times a day.

The technology (whatever it may be) is currently being developed by OTOY Inc, a company that works on graphics, virtual reality, and editing software.
