VOPED ANNOUNCES NEW VIDEO PLATFORM PARTNER
Mywebpal Chooses Embeddable Player for Low Cost and High Function
Lansdowne, VA/February 26, 2009 – VOPED, the video platform solutions company, today announced a partnership with website host Mywebpal (www.Mywebpal.com). Mywebpal is a leader in website development services for online news and, like VOPED, focuses on price, features, and stability for its growing clientele. Mywebpal adds VOPED’s Embeddable Video Platform (EVP) technology to its suite of online tools for newspaper publishers, delivering online video solutions to Mywebpal’s customers.
VOPED has developed its video platform technology with three goals in mind: affordability for all sizes of online publishers; a high degree of functionality that raises the profile of video on websites; and customer options to help monetize video content.
The VOPED EVP can be easily applied to any website at an affordable cost, and has features that can be customized to suit specific online needs. Later in 2009 VOPED will roll out additional features and services including an Embeddable Video Ad Platform, and will continue to build on the valued partnership with Mywebpal and its customers.
Commenting on the new partnership, VOPED Founder and President, Mark Serrano stated, “VOPED is delighted to partner with Mywebpal and provide its customers an Embeddable Video Platform (EVP) with a very affordable entry-level price for low-volume websites, while also providing high scalability, reliability, and functionality for any high-volume site as well.” Serrano added, “VOPED’s EVP offers online publishers enhanced functionality to engage users, catalogue videos, and capture both user and member video content. The EVP is intuitive, affordable and easily applied and managed by customers through the VOPED Administration Console. Mywebpal’s customers that are looking for advanced video capabilities to engage and serve their online audiences will appreciate the flexibility and affordability of VOPED’s EVP.”
VOPED is a privately-funded company based in Northern Virginia. In May 2008 VOPED launched its initial web applications designed to equip VOPED users with an online platform and tools to promote user-generated video content, placing VOPED at the nexus of online interaction between news publishers and news consumers, as well as other web content publishers. These free applications provided VOPED with the foundation to develop and launch its subscription-based, embeddable video applications, the first of which is the Embeddable Video Platform (EVP). Future applications under-development include the VOPED Video Ad Platform which will enable pre- and post-roll advertising on videos that will help customers monetize their websites. VOPED ensures the reliability and scalability of its applications through a redundant system of computing and storage; a load-balanced, cloud-based web farm provides easy scalability to facilitate growth for clients.
Mywebpal specializes in building content and distribution engines, and has constructed systems for hundreds of newspaper publishers and radio stations. In addition, Mywebpal’s online development knowledge includes advanced online publishing systems, online advertising servers, and online database management.
