VholdR, the online adventure-sports community driven by the ultimate helmet camera, today released its new ‘easy to edit’ software to meet the demands of its growing online community that is actively sharing video. The new software, which is Mac and PC compatible, enables anyone to tag, clip, and share their video adventures in seconds.
“VholdR is more than just a wireless, hands-free camcorder,” says Marc Barros, CEO and Co-Founder of VholdR. “Its wearable design, ‘easy to edit’ software, and click to share online experience are fueling an international community of sports enthusiasts who are mapping the world.”
The VholdR wearable camcorder launches its new software and growing community this holiday season with REI and hundreds of local retailers. Video sharing is now as simple as connecting VholdR to your computer (USB cable), tagging your videos, clipping the best parts, and clicking to share to
. Then email a link to your friends to experience your adventure and discover its exclusive location on a Google map.
“We realized that millions of people around the world love skiing, riding mountain bikes, motorcycles, and even hang gliding, and yet there is no easy way to capture their adventures through video and share it online,” says Barros. “Our mission is simple. Make it easy for anyone to share video of their outdoor adventures.”
The VholdR camera is looking to become the way to shoot and share action video for the estimated 100 million adventure-sports enthusiasts around the world who spend $93 billion on equipment, sport, and travel. Its single button to record, all-in-one wireless design, and various mounts can attach VholdR to your goggles, helmet, handle bars, or even your dog! Ideal for the adventure-sports enthusiast in your life, VholdR is a great tool to compliment any traveler.
Just as the number of active sports enthusiasts continue to grow, increasing too are those that share video online. Many analysts see online video sharing as a strong market segment in an otherwise languid economy. ComScore Video Metrix Services reports online video is estimated to be a $25B market engaging more than 200 million people around the world. US internet users viewed over 12 billion online videos in May 2008, an increase of 45 percent from a year ago.
Available this holiday for $349.99, VholdR and its online community appear poised to open the window to the world for not only outdoor enthusiasts, but those who want to check out the action from the comforts of their home or office.
