Burst Launches Bubbles to Enhance Mobile Sharing Experience

New Capability Provides Unique Opportunity for Users to Collaborate and Share Videos in Real-Time

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Burst, a mobile video solution for families, today announced the availability of Bubbles, a collaboration capability that presents a new way to experience an event among family and friends. With this new functionality, Burst users can collaborate together to capture the emotions, sounds and action of a particular event to create virtual scrapbooks that can be saved forever.

Families -- particularly those with young children -- regularly attend events such as birthday parties, sports games and school performances where multiple people are capturing high-quality videos and photos directly on their mobile devices. To date, no easy solution has existed for efficiently and securely sharing these shots with the entire community of attendees and interested parties. One person might have captured a special moment that another missed.

With Bubbles, friends and family are invited to a private, shared experience to memorialize an event with videos and photo content from multiple capturers on a private platform. Once the Bubble "Bursts," memories are delivered to group members in an easy-to-digest timeline and saved in the cloud -- making sure parents have access to that special shot, even if they weren't the ones to take it.

Burst designed Bubbles to uniquely enhance the private sharing experience around a specific event. With Bubbles, users can:

I. Collaborate on multiple Bubbles with different groups of users at the same time
II. Organize, store and safeguard multiple Bubbles in the cloud at and access them from any internet-enabled device
III. Tag and add comments for each moment or for the whole Bubble
IV. Auto-title Bubbles through calendar integration

"With the introduction of Bubbles, we've created a completely new way for Burst users to collaborate and share memories of a specific event with a group of family or friends that share a common bond," said Bryant McBride, CEO of Burst. "We see this as the future of mobile sharing, and Bubbles can be started for virtually any event -- from a cub scout meeting to charity fundraisers, Bubbles will capture moments from multiple users to be saved and organized online forever."

Burst is the simple and private way for family and friends to capture and share life's moments. Burst provides a safe and organized place to access videos and photos from any Internet-enabled device. It is easy, mobile and free.
