Senator John Edwards and the Popular Videoblog Rocketboom Are Drawn in to MoveDigital By Never Before Seen Features Such as Mobile Phone Video Publishing and Social Bandwidth Sharing
MoveDigital, Inc., a privately-held company with offices in Palo Alto, today announced the availability of their new pay as you go digital distribution service at http://www.movedigital.com. The service makes it easy for anyone to share files in any digital format on a worldwide basis and eliminates monthly bills, contracts, and credit checks. Completely free 30-day trials, no credit card required, are available and include one gigabyte of storage and ten gigabytes of bandwidth.
Senator John Edwards has become an early fan and customer adopting both the mobile phone publishing as well as experimenting with BitTorrent(TM) peer-to-peer publishing for the first time. "We welcome all voices at MoveDigital. Grass roots distribution is what democracy is all about," said Gary Lerhaupt, Principal Developer, MoveDigital, Inc.
Rocketboom(TM) was an early customer of the peer-to-peer technology prior to MoveDigital's acquisition of Prodigem's software assets earlier this year. MoveDigital is excited to have Rocketboom on board. "Rocketboom represents a shining example of creativity in on-line video publishing," said Mark Smith, President, MoveDigital, Inc.
Customers begin using the service by uploading their files into their account with their choice of MoveDigital's drag and drop software upload utility (Windows (R) or Mac OS X), or by using the MoveDigital web interface. Once added to the customer's account, the file is available for reliable and fast download via the Internet.
MoveDigital's service is based on a unique method of providing network access. The company received patent number 7,069,329 in May, 2006 from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Bandwidth in the form of gigabytes transferred is only deducted from a customer's account when the entire direct download has reached its destination. This spares customers the expense of paying for partial transfers of their files and provides a solid metric for tracking purposes.
Once files are uploaded customers simply click "mobilize" to convert files to the 3GP mobile phone format so audiences are able to watch the content on third generation (3G) mobile phones currently available from Sprint(R) or Verizon(R).
Customers who want to share their files on a peer-to-peer basis can click "torrent" to easily make their content available via BitTorrent.
Each file uploaded into a user's MoveDigital account also comes equipped with an Adobe(R) Flash(R) based web widget. The web widget allows easy sharing and posting of MoveDigital file links on websites, blogs and social networking services. The widget provides a convenient direct download link to the file and BitTorrent link if it exists. The web widget contains the download count for the file as an indication of popularity, and also includes a "Share" button which enables other users to directly add bandwidth into the publisher's account. This invention is known as social bandwidth sharing.
MoveDigital is designed for universal appeal from bloggers wishing to share files to enterprises of all sizes looking to remove monthly bills and reduce the cost and complexity of Internet file transfer. Senator John Edwards now offers mobile video downloads at http://mobile.movedigital.com/johnedwards/ and BitTorrent and direct downloads at http://download.movedigital.com/johnedwards/, and the world's most popular videoblog Rocketboom is using the service to enable peer-to-peer file sharing and mobile downloads of its daily recordings.
