LOS ANGELES, CA – April 4, 2007 – Veoh Networks (www.veoh.com), the leading innovator in Internet Television, today announced that they will bring DVD-quality Internet video directly to televisions by collaborating with companies like AMD. Veoh's Internet Television system is currently used by over five million people per month to watch and broadcast independent television programming. Using Active TV solutions driven by AMD, Veoh will distribute its channels of over 100,000 programs straight into the living room. Active TV solutions allow consumers to stream broadcast and broadband entertainment content from the PC to the TV, offering an enjoyable viewing experience with the convenience of a remote control.
"Leveraging the power and performance of an AMD LIVE! PC, AMD is working with industry-leading companies like Veoh to help consumers create and distribute content via Internet TV channels," said Bob Brewer, corporate vice president, Desktop Division, AMD. "Active TV solutions can seamlessly format and deliver TV-web channels from the PC to a networked set-top box or device, revolutionizing the digital entertainment and media experience."
"Internet Television is all about choice: what to watch, when to watch it, and what device to watch it on," said Josh Metzger, senior vice president, Corporate Development, Veoh Networks, Inc. "We are delighted to collaborate with AMD as Active TV solutions allow us to showcase our vast array of content directly in consumer's living rooms, on their big screen TVs."
Unlike video sharing sites which only offer short clips with grainy resolution, Veoh allows for broadcasting of videos in high-resolution, and of any length. And unlike traditional television with limited schedules and limited choices, Veoh offers thousands of options in video entertainment that span hundreds of topics produced by major media companies or up and coming Internet video creators. This defines a new era of on-demand television entertainment: Unlimited choices any time, on any screen at the same level of clarity as traditional TV.
