ClipCast Introduces Multi-Point-of-View Video Service for Smartphones

Free Mobile Video Sharing App Enables Users to Create Video Like a
Film Crew in Real-Time

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#appsClipCast,
a San Diego-based video technology startup, today announced the
availability of its multi-angle video capture, edit and share service of
the same name on iTunes
and Google
Play
. The free ClipCast mobile video sharing service allows users to
produce video like a film crew by easily connecting to other
smartphones, or networked cameras, to create multi-point-of-view video
highlights shareable in real-time.

Even though mobile video remains one of the hottest technology trends,
ClipCast is the first service to easily, and cost effectively, allow
users to capture the same content from multiple vantage points. It takes
just one smartphone to start a video session and others can
automatically join as additional angles via geo-location or a six-digit
alpha code. There is no limit to the number of angles that can be
introduced, filmed and shared.

Once connected as additional angles, each smartphone continuously
records, but doesn’t create highlights until a request is made from any
of the phones. If no request is received, no clips are created. Each
phone acts as a remote control that can request clips from all phones in
the session. Clips can be explicitly started and stopped, or requested
as “instant replay,” after something meaningful occurs. Recording phones
then send the clips to the cloud where they become available for viewing
on any of the devices in the session within minutes.

ClipCast’s unique ability to connect smartphones on the fly, or schedule
events in advance for unique user groups, have many describing it as
“the professional film crew in your pocket.” And because ClipCast video
clips are sent to and stored in the cloud, there is no worry about large
video files filling valuable smartphone storage space.

“With ClipCast, any group of friends can capture amazing video footage
from any number of angles as if they were professional filmmakers,”
explains Manuel Jaime, CEO and founder of ClipCast. “By being able to
easily create and share split screen or sequential combinations of
synchronized clips right from the phone, the days of spending hours
trying to download and combine different video footage are in the rear
view mirror.”

ClipCast’s unique, fully-integrated solution serves the needs of video
enthusiasts, including cloud-based infrastructure, streamlined video
capture, editing and sharing capabilities, and sport-specific clip
creation controls, making it unlike any other video production and
sharing system available today. ClipCast’s technology platform
introduces a novel set of features covered by a portfolio of issued and
pending patents for server-based and client-based implementations of the
core technology.

The ClipCast service is currently free and, in the future, will offer a
premium subscription service with additional video storage, features and
enhancements not available in the free version.

“The use cases for ClipCast are limitless—from sports teams, players and
coaches wanting to improve their form, to action sport ‘daredevils,’ to
parents wanting to capture a special life moment—all of which can be
instantly shared to social media,” adds Jaime. “Our vision for the
future is one where event and community venues will be ClipCast-enabled
with smartphones and connected cameras, allowing anybody to instantly
join a video session and capture special moments after or as they occur.”

Pilot Program with SoCal Volleyball Clubs Serves Up an Ace

For one of ClipCast’s first test programs, the Company teamed with the SoCal
Volleyball Club
, located in San Macros, Calif., to help with player
and team development, as well as recruitment efforts. SoCal team members
are using ClipCast to capture and create multi-angle video highlights
during practices, lessons and games.

SoCal Volleyball’s San Marcos location is officially “ClipCast-enabled”
through integration with fixed video cameras permanently installed on
each court, allowing users to utilize the existing video feeds by
tapping volleyball relevant icons on their smartphones to capture and
categorize content after they see a play they would like to have on
video. This “instant replay” capability can also be enhanced by adding
any smartphone as an additional recording device to the existing fixed
cameras’ angles. Simply stated, a SoCal spectator can either passively
view and tag plays after they occur or add their own vantage point to
augment the experience for all participants.

“SoCal had been searching for effective college recruiting video
solutions for years,” said Scott Phillips, SoCal Athletics President.
“We’ve seen the rise of other content-driven communities, but evolving
the traditionally flat experience to multi-dimensional hasn’t existed
until now. Recording, editing and sharing college-recruiting videos has
always been a daunting task for prep recruits. We hand-selected ClipCast
to be our sole video technology partner, because their platform is easy
to use, it integrates with our My SoCal portal, and it provides the
capabilities we had not found anywhere else—that’s what our members need
and deserve.”
