The maker of the world’s first wireless memory card for digital cameras, Eye-Fi is developing a new wireless technology that allows users to upload video direct to Youtube from their digital camera or home computer, supporting full-resolution HD video which aimed to pair with YouTube’s new HD video service.
“We’re aiming to do for video what we’ve already done for photos: provide the easiest, simplest way to save and share your digital memories,” said Jef Holove, CEO for Eye-Fi. “Our wireless technology makes it effortless to upload videos to YouTube using the digital camera you already have, without the fuss of special software. You won’t need to find a USB cable or even turn on your computer to get your memories in front of one of the largest audiences on the Web.”
“Some of the most popular clips on YouTube are shot on digital cameras, rather than video camcorders,” said Ziv Gillat, vice president of business development for Eye-Fi. “Eye-Fi will give people the power to upload videos automatically, making it even easier for the YouTube community to post their life events, home videos and breaking news – virtually as they happen.”
Eye-Fi will demonstrate its new video upload technology at 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2009) in Las Vegas January 8-11.
