LOS ANGELES, June 7 /PRNewswire/ — Today marks the launch of personal video messages made easy and the evolution of traditional email, Azooca Video Mail. This new video mail tool created by Azooca.com, the online video marketplace, brings together the ease of use of traditional Outlook(R) email and the growing popularity of Internet video. Azoocamail.com is offered free to consumers and available to anyone with an Internet connection and simple web cam.
Unlike other video mail services, Azooca Video Mail is the first major full functioning Internet-based system. Users do not need to subscribe to an ISP or pay for use; they simply set up a free Azoocamail account and are instantly able to send and receive video email. There is no need to download and install software, and no need to save video mail messages into a hard drive. Everything is operated through an Internet browser.
Historically, sending video files over the Internet encountered difficulties due to the large file format. Azooca Video Mail removes that obstacle by managing all video capture and storage on Azooca's fully managed servers rather than the user's desktop computer. Azooca Video Mail's patent-pending video capture technology streams directly to Azooca's servers, eliminating upload delay after one's video mail is recorded.
"Our goal was to create an easy to use consumer video mail product that allows users to visually express themselves, and not just write it, when it comes to e-mail correspondence," stated Brian Zheng, founder and CEO of Azooca.com. "At Azooca, we believe that video can be used for more than just entertainment. We have seen great advancements across a number of Internet-driven products and services over the last several years, but somehow email remained on the backburner. Azooca Video Mail finally brings email up to par with other cutting edge and Web 2.0 technology."
Azooca Video Mail catapults email functionality to the next level. Users can send, receive, file, and forward messages along with a host of other common email features, all with the added benefits of video.
Highlights of Azooca Video Mail: — No software to download or install — Azooca Video Mail users can view video messages directly in the body of the e-mail (i.e. No need to click a link to view video messages) — Non-Azooca users can view video messages sent from Azooca Video Mail via link — Users of Azooca Video Mail can record directly from their web browser — Videos save directly onto Azooca's servers eliminating load time and the need to save to hard drive — 250MB storage space — Forward video emails to other users — Record messages up to one minute to start — Separate text email capabilities — 10MB file attachment size separate from video recording limit — Azooca Video Mail servers utilize the latest dual- and quad-core Intel technology. By separating video capture, database, and web applications, azoocamail.com has the ability to scale to accommodate rapid growth.
