Avot mV (beta) is a mobile video search and discovery solution by Avot Media, Inc. which allows users to search, watch and myFav unlimited number of videos from various user generated video sharing sites.
Avot mV delivers these videos to a mobile phone with simple and intuitive user interface so you can search for any video you want and watch them on the go.
Current mobile video offerings are similar to TV network models, restricting users with limited content, inflexible scheduled timing, premium channels and associated fees.
User-generated content is driving the next stage in the growth of the internet and it's a shift that is behind the growth of Web 2.0 - the second phase of the internet. The users are not only spending lot of time watching content, but also creating media content and sharing it with each other. With mobile being their personal asset bundled with powerful web capability, big mobile screens, there is a demand to watch and share videos on mobile. Internet sites like YouTube recently launched its mobile site (http://m.youtube.com) with limited number of videos. There are few other startups which deliver videos to mobile phone, but all of them downsize the audio/video quality by converting them to mobile format video, which results in providing "limited number of videos". Hence, users cannot find videos generated by them and are forced to see what is randomly selected by solution provider. Avot mV also lets users share their favorite videos with friends and families.
Avot mV provides internet style freedom on the mobile phone - letting users watch what they want by discovering and choosing from billions of videos, whether it is user-generated content, personal videos, tech shows or comedy clips.
Avot mV provides point and click access to videos as opposed to users entering big URL on cumbersome keyboards and in-effective mobile browser.
The solution lets user organize the web videos in the playlist and watch them on the go. The user can create/add unlimited number of playlists and manage videos on mobile device. This allows users to watch what they want, when they want by converting their mobile phones to an entertainment jukebox.
The popular videos across web are picked and served on the first screen of mobile client. Users can navigate through different categories of videos by selecting channels and watch videos from CNN to YouTube or product demo by a company.
