ST. LOUIS (PRWEB) March 7, 2007
RCN Corporation (NASDAQ: RCNI), a leading provider of triple play cable, high-speed Internet and phone services, has launched RCN Journal on its portal as a free service to existing and prospective customers. The new service combines personal web page publishing, essential blogging features and an online video subscription service in one easy-to-use interface.
"RCN is leading the way by providing their customers with a clearly differentiated broadband enabled solution," said Ted Briscoe, CEO of Vibe Solutions Group. "With RCN Journal, users can create their own personal web presence in seconds, absolutely free. They can also aggregate and personalize thousands of online video titles into their own channel viewing experience."
RCN Journal is part personal web page and part video content aggregator. In terms of web publishing, Journal allows consumers the ability to easily publish photos, video, audio or text with drag-and-drop simplicity. Journal combines this rich-media publishing experience with a robust video content aggregator, called My Channels, allowing consumers to watch, share, personalize and publish their own video channels, ranging from professional to user-submitted content.
Some of the key features of RCN Journal include:
-- Rich-Media Publishing: With media-centric home page templates, a Media Gallery and support for more than 70 media file types, RCN Journal is optimized for digital media. There is a universal interface for users to easily browse and import media from their PC, drag-and-drop to upload or record and publish directly from a webcam.
-- Personal Web Page Customization: Each Journal comes with default pages that include a Home Page, Blog, Gallery, Calendar and Feeds. Users can personalize their Journal by selecting from dozens of home page template and style combinations, hiding certain pages of their Journal, and by adding their own audio greeting that plays when people view their site.
-- Self-Aggregated Video Content: Each Journal comes with My Channels - a video aggregator that allows users to select from a broad range of video channels. Users can search, select, and subscribe to channels, allowing them to personalize their viewing experience. Integration with Journal allows users to publish video titles directly to their Media Gallery. Content owners can manage their channels and titles to any Journal community via a password-protected Content Administrator site.
-- Share and Collaborate - on the Go: Users can easily share their personal Journal with others and allow them to contribute, comment or simply view their site. Shared calendars, the Vibe feed aggregator and the ability to publish to your Journal from a mobile phone are just some of the collaborative features of Journal.
