Press Release London, UK, August 2nd, 2010

vzaar, the business video hosting service, today announced they have signed up over 1000 companies in the US and UK, who are now using the vzaar video platform for internal and external video distribution.

vzaar is an online video hosting service for businesses who have video content they need published online. This premium service offers its customers complete control and ownership of their content unlike other free video sites. The company has positioned itself as a professional video hosting service providing a low cost service with an easy to use interface and in the last 18 months, has reached this milestone of serving 1000 companies.

“vzaar’s 1000th customer add is testament to the high-growth potential of the OVP segment,” says Paul A. Palumbo, research director at Accustream Research. “All brands are media brands in today’s multi-screen, online and mobile communication and entertainment network; there is a diverse and expanding customer base. OVP business models are sound, and structured on recurring monthly revenue. We expect rapid revenue growth for the segment over the next several years, and profitability.” According to Accustream Research, the market for online video platforms (OVPs) are growing at about 40% per year.

How are vzaar’s business customers using video?

Will Wynne from Arena Flowers, a leading online florist, has been using online video in an innovative way for over three years. Will explains, “We allow anybody who orders flowers online to add a video of themselves. They record the video and upload it to our website and we send it on the recipient on receipt of the flowers. With vzaar we were able to make this addition with no fuss.”

Alan Chester of Luzern Solutions, one of vzaar’s early customers, uses video to sell large volumes of refurbished electronics equipment online. Alan comments on his use of video “We have been using video to sell our products online for over 3 years. The video benefits our business by reducing the number of customer service calls and our conversion rates have increased as a result. Roughly 25%- 30% of visitors to the product pages watch the video. We use vzaar as it offers us the ecommerce tool set we require to add videos to large volumes of items.”

Other big name customers like Walmart (WMT) use vzaar on their community websites to publish activities they are doing in communities across North America. vzaar is also popular with web design agencies that build websites such as New York agency Dlancystreet “We use vzaar for our clients, the easy-to-use interface alone is such a cut above others we’ve researched.” Comments Regina Heimbruch a partner at Delancy Street.

“vzaar is designed for serious business video hosting unlike other free services like Youtube, Metacafe and Vimeo,” says Stephen McCluskey, CEO of vzaar. “Our explosive growth demonstrates the power of video and its attractiveness to business. Any business not using video to communicate and sell is living (and dying) in the stone age.”

Today, vzaar reached this massive milestone and we are naturally very pleased with this achivement. We have worked hard and this will further inspire us to push forward and continue to make vzaar the best online video hosting service available. 1000 Companies use vzaar
A big thank you to all of our customers for trusting vzaar as your video platform. Over the years you have been instrumental in giving us important feed back which allows us to provide you with the features you need. This year we have released many features including playlists, an iPhone app, a bulk Uploader and many more. We now have over 30+ features and we are working on a another round that will be released soon.

We also owe much thanks and praise to two very special companies who have played a significant role in building the vzaar platform.

Harmony Park– A London based digital creative agency or as they call it a Cultural Construction Company. We discussed our idea with them (Andrew, Ebony, Mike) in 2007, when vzaar was a mere concept sketched out on a sheet of A4. Harmony Park took the idea and turned it into reality.

Applicake– A Ruby on Rails development agency. We love working with this bunch and we thank them for being simply awesome. The Applicakers are not short of creativity. Just look at this video they made.

In reflection, I am astonished by the diversity of online companies using video. When we started this company we thought vzaar would appeal to only a few verticals so it’s great to know we are reaching such a broad range of companies. Here is a list to show you what I am talking about. Business like these use vzaar everyday to improve their online business and onsite user experience.

Online Retail Schools Sports Teams Classifieds
Churches Real Estate TV Stations Dating Websites
Radio Stations Online Magazines Social Online Communities Bloggers
Personal Trainers Charities Web Apps Nutrition
Web Designers Auto Websites Digital Agencies Online Learning
Big Brands Government Agencies Gambling Sites Travel

While I am writing lists let me add the countries where some of these companies are based.

USA UK France Spain Italy Germany
Australia New Zealand Uruguay Argentina Venezuela Denmark
Sweden Norway Holland South Africa Russia China
Brazil Jamaica India Taiwan New Zealand Canada
Mexico Poland Israel Nigeria

On behalf of all the team at vzaar, we are extremely grateful for your custom and we look forward to a long continued relationship providing you with your online video hosting requirements.
