Thwapr Offers Publishers 30 Days of Free Mobile Video(April 01, 2011)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 04/01/11 -- Thwapr, Inc. (OTCBB: THWI), a leading social mobile video and photo sharing service, today announced it is extending an offer to the news publishing industry or a free 30 day trial of its Share to Phone technology platform. News organizations that have a robust library of online video can use Share to Phone to mobilize their content.
"Mobile video is the future and it is here," said Bruce Goldstein, CEO of Thwapr. "Mobile video's biggest challenge has been compatibility because of a serious lack of standards in the mobile industry. We have proven our technology can deliver high quality, branded videos to more than 300 different types smartphones, feature phones and tablets. We bridge the gap."
Thwapr's patent-pending Share to Phone platform is quick and easy to implement. Just like any other social media sharing button, a Share to Phone button can be placed under any online video, no matter where it resides. Once clicked, users can then enter the mobile number of the recipient they would like to send it to. Share to Phone ensures videos can be viewed and shared across a broad array of devices via the Web, email or SMS. For marketers, advertisers and content owners, Thwapr's platform guarantees a superior brand experience with the best possible video and photo viewing quality a particular device is capable of displaying. Content can also be served with pre or post-roll ads or in a branded graphical environment that can enhance the user's experience.
Goldstein continued, "Mobilizing online video from publishers also opens up several new streams of revenue potential and value add for their advertisers."
Thwapr's cloud-based platform is scalable for any size catalog of online video, from niche sites comprised of dozens of videos up to large media portals with millions of video and photo files. Thwapr's Share to Phone technology takes the risk out of mobilizing video -- it is compatible with any Web site video player and can be implemented with only a few lines of HTML code.
Thwapr's Share to Phone platform can be used by:
- Content companies (Sports, Film, TV, Web)
- Carriers with media rich portals for subscribers
- Corporate / brand web sites (Fashion, Retail, Travel)
- User Generated Content sites
