RealNetworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: RNWK) announced Tuesday the launch of RealPlayer Cloud, its first integrated video player and cloud service.
RealPlayer Cloud allows people to seamlessly move, watch, save, and share their videos across any device. It automatically transforms video formats in the cloud.
RealPlayer Cloud apps are available for Android, iPhone, iPad, PC, Web and Roku.
“The amount of video content that consumers are capturing and watching is exploding, but moving that video around is often painfully difficult,” said Rob Glaser, founder and interim CEO of RealNetworks.
“RealPlayer Cloud is a breakthrough product that gives consumers a seamless and easy way to move, watch, save, and share their videos across all their devices. In short, we’ve made video easy.”
RealPlayer Cloud’s seamless multi-device functionality is enabled by SurePlay, a technology from RealNetworks that enables auto-formatting of videos to fit the device type, size of screen, available bandwidth and storage space available on the device.
RealPlayer Cloud comes with two gigabytes of cloud storage for free to all users in the U.S. and Canada.
It also offers additional storage via subscription plans that start at $4.99 per month. RealNetworks will be rolling out RealPlayer Cloud on other devices and in other territories and languages. For more information on RealPlayer Cloud, visit www.Real.com/Cloud.
