Long Beach, Calif. (PRWEB) March 1, 2007
The Benchmark Internet Group has launched an affordable, Web-based service that embeds high-quality, streaming video clips into e-mail, newsletters and Web sites. Created as a "You Tube for business", Benchmark Rich Media features more than 800 streaming Flash clips of industry-focused categories including travel, technology and science. Customers can also upload their own clips.
"When we created Benchmark Rich Media, we wanted to craft an affordable, easy to use system that enriches the way businesses communicate with customers," says Curt Keller, CEO and founder of The Benchmark Internet Group. "With our service, you can easily upload clips from our library or simply use your own. It truly creates a rich media experience."
The company chose Flash format because it's the most widely used streaming format. When subscribers upload their own clips, Benchmark converts QuickTime, AVI and MPEG files into Flash movies and creates HTML code. Guests can then place the code in e-mail, on Web pages or in online newsletters. The company also customizes clips with graphics or ambient sounds, music or voiceovers.
Subscriber packages start at $19.95 a month and are based on the size of the clip and how many times it streams. The service automatically includes access to Benchmark E-mail, the company's elite marketing and delivery service for e-mail and newsletters.
