YesVideo Launches iOS App for Its Cloud-based Video Memories Platform
Santa Clara, CA (February 14, 2013) —Today YesVideo, a leading cloud platform for video memories, released its iOS application, which is the first of its kind on the market. Customers can now easily view and share vintage video memories on their iPads and iPhones using the app.
By streaming video from the cloud to any iOS device, the new app allows YesVideo customers to view an entire library of vintage video memories on-the-go. With the YesVideo app, dad can show his kids footage of his own first touchdown, mom can share nearly-forgotten video of her child's first steps over lunch with girlfriends, and grandma can relive her wedding with her grandchildren. Now, families can view their video memories all the way from the roaring 20's to the groovy 70's, to today.
In its easy-to-use iOS app, YesVideo has married the latest in smartphone technology with all forms of vintage video content. By connecting an iOS device via AirPlay to an Apple TV or HDTV, customers' vintage video memories can be streamed directly onto the big screen in the living room.
"Many of us love to watch family videos together at home – but it may not be our home, but rather, our aunt's, uncle's, grandma's, or friend's. This new app allows us to watch these memories anywhere in the world," says Michael Chang, CEO of YesVideo.
"While we were visiting family in Asia over the holidays, our new app kept my mother-in-law engaged for hours as she watched video memories of our sons. Playing back times spent together, or missed out on, can be an incredibly powerful experience because it takes our foggy memories and brings them alive, so they're now a part of our everyday lives."
Vintage video memories are highly engaging; YesVideo customers spend 44 minutes in an average online viewing session and share with at least ten others via Facebook or email. YesVideo expects a dramatic increase in these metrics with its iOS app launch.
The YesVideo platform solves a massive personal video problem – nearly a century of America's video memories are inaccessible and decaying by the day on forms of outmoded media. An estimated 1.5 billion legacy video units (8mm, 16mm, VHS, Beta, etc.) are sitting in 90 million U.S. households collecting dust. Digitizing these vintage video memories will result in 3,000 petabytes of digital video data hosted in the cloud.
With the launch of the app, YesVideo is solidifying its position as the leading cloud platform for video memories. Since 1999, YesVideo has provided technology to customers and retail partners to digitize personal media to DVD and the cloud. Customers can drop off their legacy personal videos at one of the company's 34,000 retail partner locations, or order directly from YesVideo.com.
Once digitized, video memories can be easily edited, watched on any device and shared with close friends and family via email or Facebook. YesVideo's service includes free and unlimited cloud storage, so all customers have an accessible place to safely store, view, share and customize their vintage video memories.
The YesVideo iOS app features allows customers to:
- View full video albums or chapters and highlight videos
- Privately share to specific friends or family via email or Facebook
- Track the status of their orders
The iOS app can be downloaded at the Apple app store here.
An Android app will also be available soon; until then, Android and other OS users can use the full-featured HTML5 site via their mobile browser at share.yesvideo.com.
YesVideo is a leading cloud platform for video memories. The company's patented technology allows them to efficiently transfer personal videos at scale. Customers may then view, edit and share their videos in the cloud. YesVideo has unlocked billions of classic family video moments and life events for seven million customers already.
Consumers may drop off their personal film (8mm, 16mm, VHS, Beta, etc), prints, slides and photo albums at one of YesVideo's 34,000 retail locations at Costco, Walmart, Sam's Club, CVS/pharmacy and Rite Aid, or online at YesVideo.com. All material received by YesVideo go through either the East Coast production facility, located in Norcross, GA or the West Coast production facility, located in Santa Clara, CA.
