Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 3, 2010
ViewCave International, Inc. (“ViewCave”) is a new company with a revolutionary approach to online movie distribution. Their patent-pending delivery platform harnesses the power of streaming CDN’s, Bit Torrent distribution, via peer-to-peer networks, to distribute movies, videos, and television shows in both streaming and downloadable forms, offering viewers the choice of watching movies online instantly or downloading them for later viewing.
ViewCave’s proprietary advertisement-supported platform allows ViewCave and its content and distribution partners to monetize distribution, while providing viewers with free content. Their solution also opens the market for legal free online movie distribution to hundreds of millions of under-served international viewers. None of their major US competitors offers free, legal video content worldwide in streaming and downloadable forms through their sites and via bit-torrent peer-to-peer indexing sites. ViewCave’s technology allows them to monetize pre-downloaded video files with streaming geo-targeted in-video ads. At all times ViewCave retains full control over the playability of the video files regardless of the manner in which they have been distributed and accessed by viewers. They control them territory by territory. By providing unprecedented numbers of viewers with free movies, videos, and television shows, legally, profitably and globally, ViewCave is poised to change the way viewers world-wide consume video content. Their up and coming Beta release will also include distribution via mobiles, iPhones and iPads as well as the most popular internet-connected game boxes.
“We focused on the technology development first to make sure we have a quality delivery network”, Adrian Bertino-Clarke, ViewCave’s CEO said. “We didn’t just want streaming – we wanted true dynamic delivery. We wanted viewers to be able to get the best possible quality according to the normal fluctuations in bandwidth that occur in broadband internet connections. At the same time, that was not enough. What about those users with very slow or erratic connections or even dial-up? Obviously streaming would not work well for long-format videos such as feature films. So we developed an advanced download solution with the added choices of high and low resolution. People can start watching the video files whilst it is being downloaded – that’s not new, you might say. They can skip or fast-forward to any point in the timeline and start watching from there – that’s not that new either. But then we thought about torrents”. Mr Bertino-Clarke said that peer-to-peer technology was used almost exclusively to distribute illegal copies of movies and TV shows, but their technology allows them to distribute legal copies of movies and any other types of professional video recordings and monetize each and every view whilst allowing users to watch them for free.
“Viewers can download ViewCave movie torrent (vcv) files from just about any peer-to-peer site and watch them for free. They can copy the downloaded files, spread them around in whichever way they like and to whoever they like without the fear or guilt of doing anything illegal. Then whenever any of those files are played, not only do we control where they can be seen, but we only allow them to be seen wherever we can monetize them; each and every single view”, Mr Bertino-Clarke added. “It had to be a win-win proposition: free to the viewer, money-earning for the content owners, attractive geo-targeted demographics for the advertisers”. When asked what was the catch, Mr Bertino-Clarke added “torrent users can only watch the movie files through the ViewCave VCV Player which they must download and install once – Mac and Windows versions are available with Linux coming out in later in May – the other catch is that we are a young independent company and content will be added gradually”. ViewCave Inc. has already licensed over 200 hundred titles which according to ViewCave are being uploaded on an periodic basis (search for ViewCave in IMDB, here is the link: http://www.imdb.com/company/co0285771/). “Content is king – we agree – and it’s certainly coming to ViewCave; content owners and advertisers are already seeing the advantages that our delivery platform offers”. ViewCave.com [http://ViewCave.com can be accessed from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, United Kingdom and United States. Soon it will open access to Spain, Western Europe, Latin America, India and South East Asia.
