The drag and drop interfaces in the Kadoo Air Uploader and Web apps make Kadoo the easiest way to share personal videos on the Internet.
Reston, VA (PRWEB) May 19, 2011
Kadoo, Inc., a private video cloud that enables consumers to stream personal videos directly to groups or individuals they want to share with, today announced the release of its latest app, the Kadoo Air Uploader. The company’s new app uses a drag and drop interface to make sharing personal videos fast and easy. The Kadoo Air Uploader runs from the desktop and gives consumers the power to designate privacy settings for multi-file uploads as a batch or on a file-by-file basis.
“The drag and drop interfaces in the Kadoo Air Uploader and Web apps make Kadoo the easiest way to share personal videos on the Internet,” states Kurt Baumann, CEO. “If you experience interruptions in your Internet access, the upload process will resume where it left off. That’s a really nice feature because you don’t have to go through the hassle of re-selecting and re-uploading your videos. It all works in the background.”
“We also think that putting privacy settings front and center is important because Kadoo is the only service that gives consumers the ability to retain ownership and control of their personal content from any device to anywhere. We believe that videos are the most personal files people post to the Internet. From inception we designed Kadoo to give consumers a safe place to share in the cloud,” concludes Baumann.
Online privacy related to videos and other personal information continues to be an ongoing concern for consumers. More than 70% of employers admit to looking at applicants’ online reputations during the hiring process. A reported 80% of college and university admissions officers look at social networking sites when reviewing applications. A person’s online reputation can impact the outcome of both processes. For these reasons, over 40% of all adults posting content to the Internet seek some level of privacy through obscurity.
Kadoo’s default setting for video uploads is ‘not indexable by search engines.’ Videos shared strictly between subscribers within the Kadoo cloud remain private. Consumers can also use Kadoo to publish videos publicly to the Internet or to Facebook using the Facebook Connect feature.
Kadoo built its private video cloud on Kadoo Backstage™, the company’s open source APIs, which ensure ease of use and compatibility across all devices and platforms. The Kadoo Backstage APIs are available for other developers who want to create apps and services that work across Kadoo’s video cloud. Earlier this year the company released apps for iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®, Android®, and Roku® digital player. Kadoo will also be available in the Yahoo! app store when it is released later this spring.
