Revision3 is a San Francisco based Internet television network that creates, produces and distributes web television shows on niche topics.
The company was founded in Los Angeles, California by Jay Adelson, Kevin Rose and David Prager in April 2005. Dan Huard, Keith Harrison, and Ron Gorodetzky were also involved. Most of them were previously employees of the television network TechTV.
The company name refers to the evolution of video programming, according to founders Jay Adelson and David Prager, starting with standard terrestrial broadcast television as ground zero. The first revision was cable television, adding general interest channels, catering to the "most common denominator". The second revision was PC-based Internet video, independent films, no business model, no loyalty, no audience. The third revision or Revision3 is TV and Internet converged. iPods, TiVo, mobile, broadband enable mass, loyal audience to shift to on-demand, niche content.
Revision3 distributes Scam School.
Jim Louderback has been CEO of Revision3 since July 10, 2007.
