Eveo Introduces Eveo Publisher 2.0, First Drag and Drop Rich Media and Video Publishing Platform

Intuitive Interface Lets Anyone Produce and Update Web Video Pages and Emails, Synchronized with Rich Media Elements (October 09, 2001)
Eveo, Inc. (, the leading provider of rich media and video communications solutions, today introduced Eveo Publisher 2.0, a robust, easy-to-use, Web-based rich media publishing application.

With its intuitive drag and drop, user-friendly interface, Eveo Publisher 2.0 lets anyone -- even individuals with no graphic design or engineering skills -- quickly produce, publish and manage custom Web video presentations and emails, integrated and synchronized with other rich media elements. Eveo Publisher 2.0 lets users integrate video, text, graphics, slides, audio, Flash, PowerPoint, polling, and other applications. Providing target audiences with immersive viewing experiences, Eveo Publisher 2.0 complements existing marketing initiatives to attract new customers, increase sales and educate audiences.

"Rich media and Web video are proven ways to slash communications costs, and increase sales channel effectiveness," said Olivier Zitoun, founder and CEO of Eveo, Inc. "Until now, deploying enterprise-class Web video and rich media presentations was an extremely complex process, inherently limiting its use -- only a few early adopters had the resources to deploy it. Now, thanks to Eveo Publisher 2.0, that is about to change dramatically. By making rich media and Web video accessible to the rest of us, Eveo is redefining the space. Publisher 2.0 allows marketers to deploy Web video easily, without the assistance of technical staff -- which ultimately saves time and money."

"Eveo Publisher 2.0 is very consistent with Nettwerk America's commitment to using online and multimedia technologies to promote new music. It enables us to quickly produce dynamic custom video emails and streaming media players to create excitement about our artists," said Marie Scheibert, Head of Marketing at Nettwerk America, a leading independent label. "With the Publisher, we can produce engaging marketing campaigns in house, in a matter of hours without exhausting our budget or resources."

How it works

Eveo Publisher 2.0 is an integrated suite of four applications, covering all the key aspects of the rich media and Web video publishing process: creation, asset management, deployment and reporting:

1 -- Rich Media Publishing for the Rest of Us

Eveo Publisher 2.0 is the simplest authoring tool available for building rich media Web pages, emails and presentations. With its unique drag and drop interface and user-friendly toolbox, users can create rich media and Web video presentations on the fly, with just with a click of a mouse. No engineering, scripting, programming or design skills are required. With its intuitive, pre-designed templates and pre-built macros, Eveo Publisher 2.0 transforms a process that traditionally takes several days into a simple task that can be completed in minutes.

2 -- Robust Rich Media Asset Management

Eveo Publisher 2.0 provides an intuitive media management system to upload, categorize and manage all rich media assets: video, images, audio, Flash, text, labels, buttons, backgrounds, email features, etc. Metadata and search capabilities let users scan and preview all their assets through thumbnail images organized into intuitively organized folders.

Eveo Publisher 2.0's sophisticated workflow and review functions let users manage their brand and marketing assets centrally, while enabling access from virtually anywhere. For instance, a designer in San Francisco can create a new background, a Los Angeles crew can add video and a marketer in Chicago can review and approve the changes. Each user can be assigned varying levels of access and security privileges, ensuring total content integrity and tighter process management.

3 -- Deployment and Syndication

Eveo Publisher 2.0 is breaking new ground in the digital media syndication space. Once a rich media page is created, it can be previewed as the end-user would see it, then activated immediately with a click of a mouse -- either as an embedded email or a stand alone Web page. This unique, easy to use capability helps marketers instantly create and deploy effective push/pull programs.

Eveo Publisher 2.0's patent pending publishing technology generates secure and encrypted links for easy syndication that allows users to update content centrally, and deploy changes on thousands of Web sites in a matter of seconds.

On the streaming side, Eveo Publisher 2.0 is 100% player agnostic. All codecs and bit rates are supported -- Real Networks, Windows Media, QuickTime and Java players, as well as Flash slideshows. Lastly, using its embedded Eveo Sniffer technology, Eveo Publisher 2.0's automatic bandwidth and codec detection guarantees an optimal viewing experience, whether a connection is narrowband or broadband.

4 -- Reporting and Tracking

Tracking mechanisms and reporting utilities allow users to evaluate the success of their Web video and rich media marketing and educational initiatives. Eveo Publisher 2.0 utilities can track streaming activity, user events, popularity, and other feedback. Detailed tabular, graphical and derivative data can be gathered to let users measure and evaluate the results of their efforts.

Eveo Publisher 2.0 is available now as a hosted application (ASP), or through enterprise licensing. To facilitate and complement its implementation, Eveo also offers -- as an end-to-end Web video provider -- a full range of services from custom video production and template design to encoding and streaming.
