VideoEgg Publisher for the Mac Unveiled at MacworldMac & PC Users Can Now Easily Publish, Share & View Digital Video on the Web (January 11, 2006)
VideoEgg, Inc., a leading innovator in web-based video publishing solutions, today announced support for the Mac with the introduction of the VideoEgg Publisher for Mac.
The VideoEgg Publisher is a small website plug-in that is dramatically simplifying the way videos are captured, edited, and published online. A "universal adapter" that captures directly from hundreds of devices and reads dozens of formats, the VideoEgg Publisher allows internet users to painlessly publish video in a format that anyone can watch without worrying about player compatibilities, encoding settings, or extra software.
Unlike most Mac-created videos, which are posted in Apple's QuickTime format, videos posted with the VideoEgg Publisher for Mac play back in the Flash format, which can be almost universally viewed by both Mac and PC users. "For Mac users who have long struggled to share video content with PC users, this represents a tremendous step forward," Sladek adds.
The VideoEgg Publisher's straightforward approach to online video publishing focuses on simplifying digital video, making it as easy to post videos to the web as it is to post photos. The VideoEgg Publisher makes it easy for users to grab video from a digital camcorder, digital camera, video file, Web cam or mobile phone. Once captured, users can simply upload the video without needing to understand the complexities of video formats, encoders, players or servers. Throughout the process, the VideoEgg Publisher uses a simple and familiar Mac-like drag-and-drop interface. Users can also perform basic edits before encoding and posting the video.
The VideoEgg Publisher's simplicity enables many new opportunities for online video publishing, such as adding video to classified ads, real estate sites, personal profiles on dating and social-networking sites, auction postings, as well as the ability to now share a video with family and friends across the country or world. Video can also be used to spice up personal websites, blogs and emails, and kids can be creative by adding video to their homework assignments.
Availability & Pricing:
The VideoEgg Publisher for the Mac will be widely available by January 16th. The VideoEgg Publisher is also available immediately for integration into partner Websites. Interested parties should contact VideoEgg directly or go to www.videoegg.com for more information.
