Speaking from the Nordic Tech Tour in Helsinki, Neil Fenton, founder and Chairman of 10Duke comments: "Video cameras and mobile phones have enabled us all to capture special moments like never before, but not everyone wants to post these clips into public video sites. Emailing video clips as attachments causes problems of congested email accounts and many people can't play clips sent to them if they are in the wrong format. VideoSprout solves all of these problems."
Simon Penn, VideoSprout Senior Product Manager, comments: "We developed the service to be easy and simple to use. Anyone who has a video they want to share can register for free, upload the video and send a link to just the people they want. The recipient simply clicks on the link they've been sent and can watch the video streamed directly to their web browser. To make things even simpler, users can import their contacts from Hotmail or Gmail to share their clips, and they can include a text or chat message to send along with the clip."
"People who want to share a video of their child on a family holiday, wedding videos or internal company video messages are just some of the applications VideoSprout can be used for. The most important thing is that users have complete control over who gets invited to watch the video. There are no video galleries like YouTube, and unlike Facebook you can target just a small set of friends, giving total privacy to the content."
VideoSprout was created using the 10Duke Social Media Application Platform in just 10 days. The service can be accessed for free at www.videosprout.com.
