Debut of free service-based website makes mobile video sharing easy
FREMONT (BUSINESS WIRE), June 6_Umundo, a start-up specializing in automatic content distribution technologies, launched a new free online service for publishing, distributing and sharing video clips taken with camera-enabled phones or mobile devices.
This service is designed to work directly with any mobile device through an easy, fast and fun web interface. Video clips and pictures can be published to and viewed on popular web properties such as MySpace, My Yahoo!, Google and iTunes. Umundo also provides a flash player for users to view automatically updated video clips.
Video clips and pictures from camera phones and mobile devices can be sent directly via multimedia messaging service (MMS) or via e-mail. Umundo is a free service and doesn't require registration or subscription.
"We have included e-mail as an option in addition to MMS, as more and more smart phones provide complete e-mail services. E-mail will enable users to easily share content stored on their computers, whether generated by a mobile device or by any other video capture device," says Prashant Parekh, founder and CEO of the company.
The underlying technology that makes this possible is the RSS Syndication Engine, Umundo's patent pending technology. This technology enables tagging, filtering, media format conversion and bittorrent P2P distribution among several other features. In future releases of Umundo there will be new services which include international access, creation of groups and communities, as well as distribution of premium content.
Umundo is a web 2.0-technology company based in Fremont, founded by experts in web and mobile technologies. For more information please visit www.umundo.com.
