YesVideo Offers Blu-ray Disc Format for HD-Quality Personal Video and Photo Digital Slideshows
New Online HD Digital Transfer Service Enables Consumers to Enjoy Customized DVDs on Blu-ray Players
LAS VEGAS, NV–(Jan 11, 2012) – PMA@CES — YesVideo, leading provider of digital media conversion, hosting, and sharing services, today introduces a new online HD digital transfer service. This service gives customers the convenience of shipping Digital Media cards that contain HD photos and videos to YesVideo for transfer to a Blu-ray disc.
With the influx of HD- and LCD-formatted personal electronics, consumers are snapping photographs, shooting home videos, and streaming content in HD-quality more than ever before. Specifically, in the past year alone, retail trends reflected the mass consumption of HD-formatted media — sales of Blu-ray Discs alone reached 115 million units in 2011, compared with just 85 million units in 2010.1 However, when it comes to packaging personal photos and videos taken in HD, customers often lose the quality of the images’ format during the digital transfer process. Now, with YesVideo’s new direct HD-transfer service, customers can create lasting, customized digital collections of their HD videos in the same quality as they were originally captured.
“Sales of consumer electronics like HD receivers, LED/LCD TV sets, Blu-ray players, and tablets will continue to grow in 2012 as they did in 2011,2 consumers’ demand for viewing their digital memories on these devices will also increase,” says Marty Franz, Vice President of Engineering, YesVideo. “With our new HD transfer service, customers can enjoy a high definition slideshow of photos and videos from a Blu-ray disc on their home HD or LCD screens.”
To place a Blu-ray order, consumers simply visit www.yesvideo.com and send their digital media cards directly to YesVideo, or submit their digital media to any Ritz Camera, Walgreens or Walmart nationwide.
