Veoh is now part of Qlipso, the revolutionary social content sharing company. Over the coming months, users and business partners will start to see more and more social features coming to one of the world's top video sites - Veoh.
Created with the end-user in mind, Qlipso (www.qlipso.com) provides worldwide audiences with an unparallel digital media and social viewing experience. By bridging the gap between uniquely social interactive user experiences and the portability of online video, games, music and other multimedia, Qlipso empowers users to share the Flash-based media content they find and enjoy on the Web and interact with friends and family in a secure and friendly virtual environment.
From its beginning in 2009, Qlipso aimed to take the success of virtual worlds and massive multiplayer online games (MMO) and bring that to mainstream consumer and advertiser audiences. In April 2010, Qlipso made that a reality with its purchase of substantially all of the assets of Veoh, one of the world's most popular video content and Internet Television sites.
Qlipso enables users to identify themselves using 3D animated avatars, webcams or Facebook thumbnails, along with social features such as video, voice and text chat; all of which can be accessed within the same user interface, allowing users to view online content while having the ability to see and chat with one another. The Qlipso platform, which can be accessed entirely via a user's Web browser, transforms media consumption into a shared social experience, both asynchronously and live with friends and family.
Qlipso supports all types of Flash-based media, including video, music, games, slideshows, presentations, widgets and other digital content from any Web site using Qlipso's proprietary portable media player.
Who is Behind Qlipso?
Qlipso was founded in 2009 by CEO Jon Goldman and Chief Technology Officer Ishay Pnuelli, two of the pioneers in interactive Web-based user content, and is backed by Jerusalem Venture Partners (JVP - www.jvpvc.com), a 15-year-old, early-stage investment firm specializing in digital and interactive entertainment and content sites.
