Motionbox, the leading personal video sharing service, and Aiptek, the leading manufacturer of affordable, PocketDV devices, announced a partnership today that is high on quality, but easy on the wallet. The companies announced that a free, custom version of Motionbox Premium is now bundled together with purchases of Aiptek's affordable camcorders.
The Motionbox video platform offers Aiptek customers free HD playback, video sharing, and embedding on blogs and sites, as well as 60 minutes of video storage. The full subscription service featuring unlimited archival video storage, as well as high quality and source video downloads, is available to Aiptek customers at a special low introductory price.
Aiptek camcorders are currently available at most major retailers including Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Walgreens, Kmart, Sears, Amazon, and on their own site (Aiptek.com) for prices ranging from less than $100 to $250. They include many of the features of their much more expensive counterparts, including 1080p and 720p High Definition capabilities, 5MP snapshots, optical zoom, auto-focus, SD Card slots for up to 32GB of memory, direct playback to HDTV and more depending on the model.
"In this economy, the combination of Aiptek and Motionbox is really a great option for people interested in taking and sharing HD video," said Josh Grotstein, CEO of Motionbox, "Aiptek offers great video quality at very attractive price points, and we're thrilled to provide a special version of our Premium Service to complete the experience."
Trevor Irving of Aiptek added, "Aiptek is very excited to be working with Motionbox and thinks that their service offers an excellent added value to our customers. Even in a tough economy, those once-in-a-lifetime moments still occur, and the combination of Aiptek and Motionbox allows folks to share those moments with their friends and family without denting their wallets."
In addition to the consumer offering, Motionbox is powering the Aiptek "Hall of Fame," where video enthusiasts can upload their videos to be a featured "Video of the Week." Motionbox is also partnering with Aiptek on a series of seasonal campaigns featuring contests, and chances to win a variety of Aiptek products. The festivities kick off with a Valentine's Day contest asking for Video Valentines, past and present.
