Thwapr Offers Email Marketers a Solution for Mobile Video

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 16, 2011) -  Thwapr, Inc. (OTCBB: THWI), a leading social mobile video and photo sharing service, offers email marketers an easy and reliable way to integrate mobile video into their email campaigns. 

"Our solution solves the long-standing technical issues of reliability and compatibility," says Bruce Goldstein. "We can deliver video via email that works. No more worries about sizing, quality or if it will play. Like we are doing for all marketing channels such as QR codes, SMS, outdoor, etc., the email channel now has a way to bring the richness and engagement of mobile video into campaigns."

Thwapr's Universal Video Link (UVL) can be embedded into any email marketing campaign. Thwapr's solution detects device attributes (screen resolution, phone OS, etc) and then delivers a video experience tailored for that device -- feature phones, smartphones and tablets. This effectively extends an email's "rich experience" to mobile without the need for HTML. Thwapr's solution is also fully compatible with desktop viewing environments.

"People are reading email on their phones and have an expectation that a 'mobile email' experience should be equivalent to a desktop experience," says Leigh Newsome, SVP of products for Thwapr. "The days of broken videos or incompatible mobile video formats are gone. Email marketers can embed video, via our Universal Video Link, into any email. Once we detect it's a mobile phone -- we'll deliver the best video experience that phone is capable of supporting."

Thwapr is the only video solution that can deliver high quality video to more than 300 different types of phones including 50 different BlackBerry models, 40 types of Motorola phones, iPhones and more. 

"The rollout of Thwapr's cloud based video distribution platform serves many types of phones and is carrier agnostic, which is very compelling in today's mobile video space," continued Goldstein. "The recent successes, customer relationships, and continued improvements to the Thwapr platform has positioned the Company to potentially capture significant market share of mobile video users. As wide scale consumer acceptance takes hold, the Company anticipates a large increase in the number of users over the next 18-24 months."
