Eyespot Introduces ”One Click” Online Video Publishing to Major Internet Television Broadcasting and Video Sharing Websites; Deals With Blip.TV and Veoh Networks Enable Quick and Easy Publishing From Eyespot’s Online Video Mixing Platform

Eyespot Corp., developer of the world’s first online video editing and remixing suite of applications, today announced an expansion of its offering, enabling “one click” publishing of its users’ mixed and edited online videos through Internet Television broadcaster Veoh and Internet media company blip.tv. With these partnerships, users can now quickly and easily publish the videos they create via Eyespot’s user-friendly remixing and editing tools on http://www.eyespot.com.

“The market has evolved to the point where anyone can make a video. The challenge is to turn the raw material into content that is high quality and easy to distribute,” said Jim Kaskade, CEO and co-founder of Eyespot. “Working together, Eyespot and our partners provide users with the tools and services to create polished content and easily share it with a wide audience through massive distribution networks.”

With easy-to-use online tools and services, Eyespot allows users to effortlessly upload video clips, audio files or photos, in any format, to create high quality video. Enabling users to use special effects, transitions, and mix together their own content or the content from the Eyespot network, Eyespot is now expanding its offering to include “one click” distribution to online video destinations. Once a video is mixed or edited, users simply check a box online for outlets including blip.tv and Veoh and their video is automatically sent to the sites for additional viewing.

“Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for anyone to create a TV show: filmed, produced and edited exactly as they like,” said blip.tv CEO Mike Hudack. “Eyespot offers great tools for remixing video in exciting ways, and we’re thrilled to help their talented content creators distribute entertaining and informative work with a single click of the mouse.”

Eyespot’s unique mobile capabilities allow anyone to send videos from Eyespot’s online service to a mobile phone and vice versa. Eyespot launched this service as part of its Eyespot Mobile Share program. As the first component in a multi-part offering, Eyespot users can now interact with video directly from their mobile phones. This ability reflects a larger strategy of accepting video from any source and publishing it online or to any device, such as a mobile phone, providing many outlets for video viewing to Eyespot’s users and partners.

“Veoh is designed to enable anyone to broadcast TV-quality, full-screen video to the hundreds of millions of users around the world with a broadband internet connection. With Eyespot, individuals have a new way to create their own television programming and then quickly make it available on Veoh in the original quality and length,” said Dmitry Shapiro, Founder and CEO of Veoh. “Enabling professional and amateur broadcasters is key to Veoh and we have integrated Eyespot into our user experiences to make distribution to millions via Veoh a simple process.”
