Atlanta-based video content management service provider, Vidiac (vidiac.com), hits million-view-month milestone less than six weeks after going live.

Despite recent pronouncements of rich media and video being slow to move online, Vidiac, a band of renegade coders, released a video content management system that crossed the one million views threshold, and managed 1200 pieces of unique content, in its first month out of beta release—enabling a new generation of "long tail" content providers.

Videos.streetfire.net - Vidiac's first live deployment - is now serving up free video hosting and viewing to an audience of car enthusiast that is growing at a remarkable daily rate. Users have posted over a thousand links on message boards pointing to videos hosted on videos.streetfire.net.

"Younger web users who have passion for specific interests are both voracious consumers and prolific producers of content" said Chris Jones, head of Vidiac's marketing and sales.

"The Vidiac team has achieved its primary goal of creating a free, robust video content management tool that facilitates simple video content distribution and consumption. In the process, we found ourselves building a tool easily adapted to other enthusiast sites-- one that can be quickly customized for their community," said Adam Bruce, Vidiac's chief system architect.

"Vidiac's massive early adoption at streetfire.net demonstrates the Vidiac solution is elegant and functional," said Tom Barnes Founder of Mediathink an Atlanta media strategy firm. "Fanaticism for the empowerment of smaller content providers is the only driver that could possibly germinate such an effective solution with this velocity of adoption". Barnes went on to say "Google's recent announcements coupled with the growth in Vidiac's traffic metrics justify the excitement around online video. In the very near term, we believe there will be a number of effective community platforms for content creators of all sizes to reach and attract significant audience."

"Our ability to quickly and easily enable publishers to add free video functionality to their existing websites will enable us to accelerate our current rate of growth. We are well on schedule to meet our goal of traffic parity with IFilm by Q1 2006," said Jeremy Farber head of development at Vidiac. "We're unique from other, potentially larger, video content management systems currently in beta development. Vidiac is load tested and live, it requires no download and minimal user registration. The tool also features useful personalization and RSS solutions to further support our aggressive growth targets."

Based in Atlanta Georgia, Vidiac is the Internet's leading provider of free video content hosting and management, offering enterprise video portal services to web sites and easy to use tools for enthusiasts to post videos online via PC or web enabled phones.
