Veoh Integrating With Video iPod
October 12, 2005
SAN DIEGO – October 12, 2005 – Veoh Networks, Inc., the first Internet Television Peercasting Network, today announced it is integrating its software with Apple’s new video iPod, allowing users to easily export video collections to the iPod and other portable video devices.
“Veoh is changing the world of television by allowing anyone to broadcast television-quality video to the masses,” said Dmitry Shapiro, CEO of Veoh Networks. “The availability of the video iPod is another big step in democratizing television by making it more portable and accessible anywhere.”
Veoh software, installed on consumers’ PCs or Macs, creates a virtual television network that is able to distribute TV-quality, full-screen broadcast video to hundreds of millions of users with broadband Internet connections. Motion picture studios, television networks, organizations and individuals can publish unlimited amounts of broadcast video content to the network, providing consumers with unparalleled choice in television programming and control over their viewing experience.
“Our viewers are very excited about the ability to take their videos off the PC and make them available on portable devices like the video iPod” said Tod Swank, chairman of Skateboard.com and an early broadcaster on Veoh. “With Veoh’s service, our visitors get not only the capability to broadcast their own videos, but to share them effortlessly with friends on and off the network”.
Unlike rogue P2P networks used to share mostly pirated video, Veoh is a community of publishers and consumers, where published content is approved by editors, and consumers are assured they get what they request. The system also integrates tightly with Google Video and RSS, providing content producers with easy publishing to multiple video systems.
