December 11, 2007 – San Mateo, Calif. – MotionDSP, an emerging leader in
digital video technology, today announced that its new, free consumer
service – FixMyMovie.com – now supports the high-quality H.264 video
compression standard. FixMyMovie.com is one of the first websites to
natively support H.264 encoding and enables the best-possible quality for
videos uploaded to the site. FixMyMovie offers a ‘one-click autofix’ for
user-generated video, through MotionDSP’s cutting-edge video enhancement
solutions – originally developed for military/intelligence applications.
H.264 is the new standard in broadcasting digital HD and is deployed
worldwide through a number of different TV networks, websites and Web
technologies in their digital workflow. With FixMyMovie.com, citizen
journalists can create accounts, upload their videos, order full processing
and share the H.264 results through Adobe Flash 9 (via email or embed).
News organizations can now upload video obtained from users through their
mobile phones, enhance the quality automatically and add that video
directly into their news editing without transcoding. Through
FixMyMovie.com, it is also possible to download the processed results as
high-res H.264, high-res WMV, or even high-res JPEGs for printing – ideal
for newspapers and magazines.
H.264 is a standard component of Apple QuickTime and is now built-in to
Adobe Flash 9. Through this new format, users can dramatically enhance
video from any source with one-button, online simplicity and with the best
Examples can range from breaking news captured with a mobile phone to
irreplaceable video of a baby’s first steps.
Fixmymovie.com can take any video file from a mobile phone or digital
camera and make it better. FixMyMovie’s suite of automatic enhancements
improves overall resolution, corrects for poor lighting conditions and
removes the blockiness and other artifacts that ruin most mobile phone and
low-end digital camera videos. The service was launched at the DEMOfall 07
conference and has been called ‘the gold standard for video enhancement’ by
pre-briefed analysts and press, as well as In-Q-Tel (Arlington, VA), the
investment arm of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
Regardless of source, FixMmyMmovie.com enables any video to look its best,
all with the simplicity of one-button operation – just click and the
service will upload your selected video with free enhancement processing.
Then, you can share it, embed the improved video on your blog, Facebook or
MySpace page, or download it for posterity in formats for multiple devices.
In addition to H.264 Flash, enhanced video clips are available for download
to Microsoft Windows PCs as a WMV file, High-res H.264 QuickTime for Apple
iPod, iPhone, or Mac computers, as well as Adobe Flash for online services
such as YouTube.
