Fill Your New Video iPod for Free at Veoh
November 30, 2005
SAN DIEGO – November 30, 2005 – Veoh Networks, Inc., the first Internet Television Peercasting Network, today made available more than 3,000 videos for easy download and transfer to Apple’s newest iPod. iPod owners can now fill up their entire device with video, free of charge, at www.veoh.com.
Veoh allows anyone with a computer and an Internet connection to broadcast their own TV show, or channel of shows, in full-screen television quality. Individuals and companies are broadcasting compelling content – from original cartoons, like Superman and Popeye, to comedies like The Three Stooges, feature-length films, and more than 10,000 user-produced videos on every subject imaginable.
“Veoh, combined with the iPod, is the perfect mix.” said Dmitry Shapiro, Veoh CEO. “The iPod lets you take your video wherever you go, and Veoh gives you thousands of free videos, no matter what your interest may be.”
This new capability provides the easiest way for consumers to get Internet Television to their iPod and provides video publishers of all sizes with a single publishing platform to make content available to the world. Support for additional portable devices is coming soon.
“Portability is a major step in providing consumers the ability to control their viewing environment,” says Allen Weiner, research vice president for Gartner, Inc. “The ability for users to create program feeds and download content from the Web and view it on devices other than the TV creates a content foraging experience that will dramatically the change long-standing paradigm for TV and video distribution.”
Veoh software, installed on a consumer’s PC or Mac, creates a virtual television network able to distribute TV-quality, full-screen video to hundreds of millions of users with broadband connections. Motion picture studios, television networks, organizations and individuals can publish unlimited amounts of video content to the network, providing consumers with unparalleled choice in television programming and control over their viewing experience.
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 RSS, providing content producers with easy publishing to multiple video systems. For more info on Veoh, see the Veoh Tour Video at http://www.veoh.com/tour/.
