Award-Winning FixMyMovie.com Offers New Premium Services for Auto-Fixing Consumer VideoContinued Free Services for Mobile and Consumer Videos with Additional High-Resolution Features Now Available at $2 per Processed Movie
July 9, 2008 – San Mateo, Calif. – MotionDSP (San Mateo, Calif.), an emerging leader in digital video technology, today announced that as of July 9, its award-winning FixMyMovie service will be available as both a free and premium offering at www.fixmymovie.com. Using FixMyMovie, video from any source can be dramatically “auto-fixed” using technology originally developed for high-tech “CSI-style” video forensic applications.
FixMyMovie’s suite of automatic enhancements improves resolution, corrects for poor lighting conditions and removes the blockiness and other artifacts that ruin mobile phone and digital camera video.
All the same features that have made FixMyMovie one of the Web’s most popular destinations for video enhancement will remain intact – users can still upload, fix, and share videos for free, as well as push ‘fixed’ videos to YouTube®, and download high-res still JPEGs.
Additionally, FixMyMovie has increased the resolution and file size limits to accommodate videos up to 640×480, and up to 100 megabytes in size.
For those users seeking the ultimate in video quality, FixMyMovie will now offer a premium download option. Using FixMyMovie’s new premium service, users can download high-resolution versions of their enhanced videos back to their computers. These high-res versions are up to 4X the resolution of the original video, up to double the frame-rate, are logo-free and are encoded at high-bitrates to preserve all the video details.
Three versions are available: Apple iPod®, Microsoft® Windows Media™ 10 and Adobe® Flash® 9 formats. The $2 fee entitles the user to receive all 3 versions of the enhanced video for use on their computer, mobile device, in post-production or to share anywhere with anyone.
“After 9 months of intense beta testing and awards from PC World, CNET and Kim Komando, we are confident that FixMyMovie is ready to become a source of revenue for MotionDSP — without sacrificing any of the free features that have made the service so popular,” said Dr. Sean Varah, CEO of MotionDSP. “We are delighted to unlock our restrictions and offer our community real value, while enabling us to achieve revenue from our patented technology. At $2 a video, we are very confident that most FixMyMovie users will take advantage of the new premium service features, similar to the model used by Yahoo® in their Flickr™ video service.”
