I had this idea rolling in my head about 13 months ago
Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) January 2, 2008
A new website, set to launch on New Year's Day, will provide a new, unique way for people to interact with the world. The site is http://www.jaudible.com. Its objective? To serve as an online platform for individuals from all walks of life and locales to share their stories with the entire world. Unlike blogging, the stories are visually-captured on film using high-definition cameras, microphones, and professionally edited by a film crew to ensure a high level of quality is met with every video story.
In addition to high quality, jaudible.com also captures a wide range of stories in foreign languages and provides English subtitles for the majority of their audiences to watch and understand. This translation allows jaudible to enlist a far-off cameraman to capture stories in any language, translate them, and bring them into the site for all users to see.
The website's founder, two-time author and Fortune 500 technology consultant, Shawn Livermore, and his team have been hard at work developing the new site since December 2006. "I had this idea rolling in my head about 13 months ago," Livermore explains. "YouTube had just been purchased for 1.6 billion, and I had felt like the market needed something better than the amateur videos I saw on YouTube. I knew then that my idea had something of substance. We asked for money from angels and some venture capital folks, but it was too soon... We needed to prove the model and test it. So we bootstrapped a company, found some creative solutions, invested our own money, worked really hard, and here we are now… after long hours, multiple plane tickets, train tickets, horse-rides through Europe, buying video cameras, hiring programmers, shooting tons of footage, and drinking mass quantities of Starbucks coffee…"
"Since then, we've captured over 500 stories from 8 different nations, all in a clean, consistent video format and with great story lines." The stories range from a number of topics - from hilarious bathroom mishaps to poignant, tragic tales about personal loss. No matter the topic, every story that is shared is personal and true, and above all has deeply affected the individual in ways which anyone can relate.
The concept and vision behind jaudible.com is a move away from lower-end amateur video sites that reproduce off-beat and often inappropriate content and more towards a niche market of higher-quality, online video content and presentation.
