Pure Digital Technologies today introduced Flip Video, a new line of digital camcorders designed to revolutionize how everyday consumers shoot and share video. Developed with Internet video sharing software integrated into the device, Flip Video is the first camcorder to seamlessly upload directly to YouTube and other online video sharing sites. The camcorder retails at $119.99 for the 30-minute model and $149.99 for the 60-minute model.
“With Flip Video, Pure Digital has created a brand new category of camcorder that puts the power to instantly capture, edit, and share video in the pocket of everyday consumers,” said Jonathan Kaplan, Chairperson and CEO of Pure Digital Technologies.
Flip Video’s built-in software allows people to share videos as easily as they would digital photos. In addition to instant emailing, the program allows videos to be uploaded directly to popular Internet video sharing sites, including YouTube. Creative users can also edit their clips, make custom movie mixes, add their own music, capture still photos from video, and even design video greeting cards.
“Flip Video is a new breed of camcorder that recognizes and leverages the tremendous demand for video sharing.” said Kelly Liang, Business Development, YouTube. “Not only does Flip Video make it easy to capture video, it also makes it simple to instantly share it with friends, family or the world via YouTube.”
