Gorillabox announces the launch of a new cloud-based, Self-Serve Video service G-Box TV.
You upload – We encode – You share
February 2013 –
Gorillabox is proud to announce the launch of self-serve, social video service, G-Box TV. The new service, based on the proven media platform from Gorillabox, allows consumers and enterprises to upload, encode and share video content via any method.
“We have encoded and streamed video content for large companies like 3, Sky or Vodafone and we wanted to make our technology easily accessible on the web for anyone to use whether they are small or large organisations or consumers. The G-box.tv online video encoding solution embraces social media as any video uploaded can be shared via all social media or published into sites, apps or blogs. is the result of more than 6 years of constant development on our encoding platform wrapped into an easy to use and yet very powerful online solution” - says Christian Harris, CEO of Gorillabox
G-box.tv gives to its users the possibility to share and manage their professional or personal video content for their businesses, family or friends at a reduced cost using the online website www.g-box.tv or the mobile app www.g-box.tv/mobile.
The service appeals to a wide range of users from individuals who simply want to be able to empty their smartphone of videos and have them accessible from the cloud, or whether you are an enterprise seeking to use video to exploit the power of video in your website, application or blog.
“G-Box TV has a massive potential audience as there is a play for both consumers and business. We believe that our unique technology allowing your to upload video straight from the device will be a big hit with consumers wanting rapid upload and social sharing. But we also see substantial potential among the enterprise community seeking to make use of content online and on mobile for the retail of goods and service. For example, our “call to action” feature allows you to configure what a consumer does after they have watched a video and our “private share” feature ensures that you can share video content with colleagues or friends securely.” Explained Christian Harris, Gorillabox CEO.
It is a unique service that is in advance on its competitors. We are the first company on the market to allow anyone to capture video on their smartphone, host it to the cloud and share it on the web in just 3 steps. G-box.tv mobile (www.g-box.tv/mobile) allows you to capture new video content with your phone anywhere and share it is few seconds on multiple web communication channels.
Any G-box.tv user can choose to share a video publicly by embedded it into its own website or publishing it on social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. The user can also decide to share it privately with its own clients.
Along with video hosting and video encoding, G-box.tv also gives the user a detail overview on how the videos are performing online. The user will have access to key metrics like the View Through Rate (VTR) to know how long people have watched a video.
If producing an online video is part of your online marketing strategy, one of the most difficult decision you will have to do is who to work with.
At G-box.tv we know that the most limiting element to go into digital video is the cost - this is why we have set our prices to reflect the market expectations.
We also understand that companies don’t want to lose their ownership on their content when hosting it with a third party. With G-box.tv, all our customers keep their copyright on their content.
Predictions for the mobile video traffic are revealing: two third of the world’s mobile data traffic will be video by 2015, doubling every year between 2012 and 2015 according to ComScore.
When using G-box.tv, you can make sure that all your videos will be ready to be shared on desktops and to smartphone users.
