Release Issued by How2Share Technologies:
Frustrated Digital Photographers Get Relief from Photo and Video Sharing Woes with PiXPO 2.0Victoria, British Columbia August 25, 2005
-- How2Share Technologies Inc. today announced the release of PiXPO 2.0. While major software and hardware vendors have made it easier than ever to create and edit personal video from digital cameras and camcorders, PiXPO is the first product ever that allows consumers to effectively share the large resulting video files.
After listening to consumer complaints about the challenges of sharing their personal videos, How2Share Technologies responded by adding video functionality to their critically acclaimed PiXPO photo sharing software. As well, PiXPO 2.0 also supports sharing of personal music files.
With PiXPO 2.0, high bandwidth users can stream video directly from their friends' computers, while letting those with lower bandwidth connections download personal video for viewing. With options for private or public sharing, users have total control over who has access to their media.
Additional features in 2.0 requested by its growing digital photography audience include watermarking and RAW support, which allows viewers on other computers to view RAW images through PiXPO regardless of whether their own computer supports them.
Says How2Share CTO John Harley, “I'm proud of our team, not only have they done a great job solving a longstanding consumer problem, they've leapfrogged the video technology used by other software companies in the process.”
The release of PiXPO 2.0 is a major milestone for How2Share Technologies. Says CEO Colin How, “The interest we're getting from customers and top-tier partners with our new technology is phenomenal. In the future, we'll remember this release as when we turned the corner as a company. This release is proving successful in its own right and will also pave the way to some huge partnerships.”
