Fliqz and LearnHub Announce First Open Source Video Solution for Ruby on Rails

Fliqz4R Enables Rapid Integration of Video Services for All Ruby on Rails Applications

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - Fliqz, a provider of white-label plug-and-play video solutions, and LearnHub, an educational technology company, today announced the release of Fliqz4R, an open-source Ruby on Rails wrapper for the Fliqz video platform. Fliqz4R enables developers to easily and rapidly deploy full-featured video services for any site built on Ruby on Rails.

"Ruby on Rails has become a very popular development environment and we're seeing tremendous customer demand for Ruby on Rails integration," said Benjamin Wayne, CEO of Fliqz. "The Fliqz4R suite, developed by LearnHub, provides for easy integration and will help Ruby on Rails developers take advantage of the Fliqz platform."

In addition to Fliqz4R, LearnHub has created an educational community, Fliqz.learnhub.com, that provides instruction, resources, and code examples for Fliqz Ruby on Rails developers.

"The Fliqz platform offers unprecedented ease and power for video integration," said John Phillip Green, CTO of LearnHub. "However, until now there has been no off-the-shelf solution for the Ruby-on-Rails environment. This open-source solution makes integration simple while allowing developers to take full advantage of the Fliqz solution."
