Sendvid.com Strips Away Community, Aims to Push Users Toward Social Media

“Our partnership with LeaseWeb USA, Inc. enables us to scale rapidly without the exorbitant costs of third-party cloud services.” said Florian Cervenka, CTO, Shared Media

Shared Media is introducing Sendvid.com, (http://sendvid.com) a new video platform that focuses purely on content--no comments and no sign-up required. Sendvid aims to grow the service by leveraging external communities such as Twitter, Facebook and Reddit. The service is introducing the platform today to offer an alternative and seamless solution in the highly competitive video space with well known video sites YouTube and Vimeo.

The development team focused on creating a video hosting service that keeps the features to a minimum, without the need for building a community.

“One of the main challenges in operating any hosting platform are the bandwidth costs. Our partnership with LeaseWeb USA, Inc. enables us to scale rapidly without the exorbitant costs of third-party cloud services.” said Florian Cervenka, CTO, Shared Media.

After developing two successful image hosting services; Imgbox and Imagebam, the team is shifting gears to add a video platform. In addition, Sendvid has plans to release multiple apps for early next year for iOS and Android.

"Sendvid leverages existing communities and is built around the need to quickly send videos with a simple process without the need to be public," said Adam Oliver, CEO, Shared Media. "The mobile friendly service gives mobile users on smartphones and tablets a way to upload and share videos on the go. As more of our everyday moments are being documented with video, we want to make sure users have options to be public or private.”
