CONCORD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–EuclidIQ, a leading developer of video compression products, today announced the launch of UptiiQ, a new video distribution app for iOS and Android. With just one tap, UptiiQ allows users to post videos from their mobile phones to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube simultaneously, while ensuring the highest video quality for each of the different social networks.
“If you have ever tried to upload your carefully shot video to a social media site and felt frustrated by the quality of the posted video, UptiiQ is for you. Most people don’t realize that in order to match the quality of the original, they’ll need to choose specific video codecs, and fiddle with aspect ratios, and encoding data rates. UptiiQ makes everyone an expert by automating that process. This allows users to concentrate on their content, not on the technical details,” said EuclidIQ CEO, Richard Wingard.
Users simply shoot their video, click on their desired social media destinations and UptiiQ processes the video in the cloud to deliver the most optimal video format for each site.
For users publishing to multiple social platforms, UptiiQ can save significant amounts of data usage. Uploading a 10-minute high-quality video to three social networks could easily eat up 4GB of a data plan. With UptiiQ, users upload once to the cloud and end up saving 66% of their mobile data plan.
Social media power users will benefit from the time savings UptiiQ can offer. Once an upload is started, the app works in the background, allowing users to continue using their phone without interruption.
“When I travel internationally, data charges add up quickly. UptiiQ allows me to post to all my networks without incurring additional data charges, and the quality remains pristine,” said Emmy-nominated television producer and blogger Sean Thorp.
The UptiiQ app is available today worldwide in both iTunes and Google Play as a free download and includes ten minutes of video upload per month. Users may purchase more minutes for as low as seven cents per minute. Purchased minutes rollover indefinitely.
