Los Angeles -- Helio introduced today the ability to upload videos shot with Helio devices to a YouTube account with only two-clicks. Available exclusively on Helio service and free-of-charge for Helio All-In Members, this faster and easier upload opens YouTube to near real time publishing, freeing people from their PCs so experiences can be shared as they happen.
"Helio has made it easier than ever to watch and publish videos to YouTube wherever you are, on a nationwide high-speed 3G network," said Sky Dayton, CEO of Helio. "Going even further, we've made it so you can shoot video on your Helio device and publish it to millions of YouTube users, in just two clicks. Taken together, Helio is providing our members with a complete YouTube experience unlike anything on the market today."
"Helio is one of the most innovative mobile services in the business today and by partnering with them we help further our vision of bringing originally created videos to mobile devices," said Chad Hurley, CEO and co-founder, YouTube. "We're particularly excited about the direct upload feature and look forward to working together to bring the best YouTube experience to Helio's members."
Two-Click Video Upload
Helio members can shoot a video using Helio's exclusive premium devices and in only two simple clicks, upload it via a high-speed 3G network to their YouTube account. Members need only to sign up for a YouTube mobile profile, then preprogram their Helio Album, Helio's media sharing service, and after taking a video click "Helio UP" on their device screen, and then "Post" and their videos will be live for their friends, family and the YouTube community to enjoy.
Optimized YouTube Mobile Experience
Designed specifically for Helio service, YouTube has been optimized for mobile on Helio through a close working relationship between companies to deliver faster and easier access to compelling content, letting members share their experiences with friends, family and the YouTube community. Leveraging the rich QVGA screens and landscape viewing mode on Helio devices Ocean, Drift and Heat, as well as future Helio devices, paired with the speed of a nationwide 3G network, Helio members can now browse, search and view thousands of the most popular YouTube videos. More YouTube videos will be added each week, and the full YouTube catalog should be available this fall. Featured, Recently Added, Most Viewed, Top Rated and Top Favorite videos will be available in a wide range of categories.
