LOCATION-BASED VIDEO APP
HARNESSES THE POWER OF SHARED EXPERIENCES
From Pixorial, Krowds Delivers Different Points of You
CO- April 9, 2013 – Pixorial®, the video
service that lets users transform shared experiences into their own personal
stories, today announced the availability of Krowds™ Video – the only mobile
video app that lets people quickly discover, contribute and join in shared
video experiences with full quality videos of any length. The Krowds app makes
video crowdsourcing easy, convenient and nearly limitless, and completely
changes the way consumers experience video by providing access to others’
perspectives of a shared event.
social video apps depend on a single contributor's perspective and impose
stringent length limits. The Krowds app
now lets anyone with an iOS or Android device discover, view and share videos
of the same event in their original duration and quality. Using Krowds is
easy. Users simply create shared public
pools of video called Krowds based around an occasion such as a wedding,
concert or sporting activity, and can find nearby events and shared interests
with the app's location-based discovery features.
backed by Pixorial's robust video platform that makes creating videos simple
for anyone—absolutely no video editing experience is needed. The Krowds app offers the first truly
collaborative media space where users can easily find, share and repurpose
relevant, meaningful video moments. For
instance, a parent could find videos contributed by fans at their child’s high
school basketball game, select and edit relevant clips using tools on Pixorial,
and create a new and personalized highlight reel. Upcoming releases will make the experience
even more personalized with contextually relevant information such as location
awareness, date, time, usage data, and integration with users’ social networks.
"Krowds fundamentally transforms how we
discover and interact with personal video," said Andrés Espiñeira, Founder
and CEO of Pixorial. "Video is inherently social. It captures moments as
we live them, but until now we've been limited to the bite-sized clips that
others pre-screen and decide to share.
Imagine finding a rich trove of raw, original quality video from a
significant event – such as your child's first school play – and then capturing
all the moments that are most meaningful to you. Krowds opens a world of choices by bringing
multiple points of view to what was once a singular perspective. This app completely changes how we record and
experience the events in our lives we most want to capture, save and share with
those who matter to us.”
