When President Obama takes the podium on Tuesday, January 24th at 9:00 p.m. ET to deliver his 2012 State of the Union Address, anyone across the country can, for the first time, clip a video of any moment from the speech to tweet, post or embed in their blog.
Do you ever notice that when you see something great on TV everyone talks about it on Twitter, but it takes hours or longer for that clip to show up online? Getting clips from TV or live web video is a painful and time consuming process that leaves people on Twitter and Facebook with nothing to share except iPhone recordings on YouTube.
To solve this problem, SnappyTV has created the web’s first cloud-based, live video editing tool that allows content owners and their fans to instantly publish highlight clips from live content to the web in a rights friendly way. It allows broadcasters, media and other rights approved users to instantly create clips of live TV and web streams, as they air, and share them on Facebook, Twitter, blogs and other social media outlets in real-time. SnappyTV is opening up our platform for anyone to use during this year's State of the Union Address.
The SnappyTV Pro Editor provides a powerful tool for content owners, bloggers and news outlets to instantly publish clips from TV or streaming web video to fans or followers. Key features of the Pro Editor include:
“Every month, there are over 3 billion messages on Facebook and Twitter referencing real-time TV content. This year’s State of the Union will drive a massive conversation online, and we enable anyone to publish clips into that conversation as its happening,” said Mike Folgner, CEO of SnappyTV. “The State of the Union provides us with a unique opportunity to let everyone try our powerful real-time publishing platform. With the SnappyTV Pro Editor, tight social integration and embeddable widgets, we’re providing the tools that broadcasters and content rights holders need to infuse the social conversation with the video of the moments fans are buzzing about.”
