Viddyou Launches High Bitrate Video Service
First Service to Provide Easy Way to Share Personal Videos in Stunning Quality
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - Viddyou Inc., the premium video-sharing
service exclusively for personal content, announced today the launch of the
first consumer High Bitrate (HBR) video sharing service available at
Viddyou.com. This new feature allows users to share near original-quality
video from their digital camcorder or camera without the quality
degredation typically seen in online video.
Recognizing the surge in consumer demand for affordable personal video
recorders coupled with the lack of services available to share high-quality
video, Viddyou's innovative HBR service enables friends and families to
share videos while retaining the quality and detail from the original video
source. The HBR service delivers video at more than 1.1
megabytes-per-second at the native 640x480 resolution at which personal
video devices commonly record.
"The innovative High Bitrate service introduces a new class of video
sharing possibilities, at no cost," said Aaron Wadler, CEO and Co-Founder
of Viddyou. "We are consistently pursuing new opportunities to push the
limits of video delivery on the Internet, providing unmatched technology
and capability within our market. Viddyou's High Bitrate functionality is a
redefining step in the evolution of personal video sharing."
Viddyou also recently announced the release of their completely redesigned
Flash video player that has been re-built in the latest Flash programming
language, AS3, for speed and performance. The new video players come in
two flavors: one, a self-contained player that can play all of a member's
video in one window; and a second, more traditional, single video player
for embedding in blogs and web pages.
Viddyou offers a wide-range of features to help individuals organize and
share their most precious moments captured on video. Viddyou is a
user-friendly, advertisement-free site with powerful privacy controls that
allow users to share video online both publicly, or with customizable
levels of privacy. Viddyou leads the personal video sharing industry with
High-Definition service, integration with Twitter, Flickr and Facebook, as
well as full mobile support from a Smartphone and custom Apple iPhone
