There’s the Food Network for foodies, CNN for news junkies and now CADCAMNETtv for those addicted to being in the know when it comes to happenings affecting the CAD industry.
The Internet-based broadcast, updated bi-weekly, serves up a news-format show, complete with a fresh-faced anchor woman, who dishes on everything from recent earnings announcements to product updates to scandals rocking the CAD world. A visit to the site this week found a wide-ranging mix of stories, from PTC terminating a long-term partnership with PLM vendor SofTech to a report on the arrest of a suspected thief stealing source code from CAD vendor Alibre Software.

CADCAMNETtv, a collaboration between Ash Bridge Media LLC and Alkemedia Productions LLC, is also now offering RSS feeds and Podcasts on the site to round out its CAD content. The RSS news feed will also lets subscribers know when new CCNtv broadcasts have been posted.
