New York, NY and Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
WeVideo, Inc., the leading online video editing company, today announced a new collaboration with Sony Electronics to make cloud-based, online video editing a reality for select Sony camcorder customers in the U.S.
Owners of new Sony Handycam® camcorder and Action Cam models from 2012 through 2013 will be entitled to 90 days usage of WeVideo’s online editor, granting them access to powerful video editing features, including 30 minutes of Full HD 1080p export quality per month; real-time previews and fast rendering; 10GB of cloud storage; and 400 royalty-free audio tracks.
Eligible U.S.-based Sony customers will be able to access this unique offer through the Sony PlayMemories Home at http://www.sony.net/pm.
“This kind of cloud-to-hardware integration enables customers to create and share memories more effectively,” said Hidenori Toyoda, director of the camcorder business at Sony Electronics. “Today’s customer is not merely satisfied in capturing memories, they want to create sharable moments. Sony’s integration with WeVideo helps make that possible.”
WeVideo CEO, Jostein Svendsen says: “Since 1985, the Sony Handycam has been improving the way people record and share their memories and now, Sony and WeVideo are making it even easier for anyone with an online computer to create and share fully-edited video projects. In today’s constantly connected, social ecosystem, we believe the transition between creating and sharing has to be as seamless as possible, not only to ensure that customers continue creating content, but also that the content is interesting enough to merit sharing. The integration of Sony’s hardware and WeVideo’s cloud-based video editor represents a significant step toward that goal.”
WeVideo (http://www.wevideo.com) makes editing footage shot with a video camera easy and its intuitive editing interface adapts from novice through to advanced editors. WeVideo enables camcorder owners to turn raw video footage into professional-looking videos, making them more creative and compelling.
