Broadcast Interactive Media (BIM), a provider of ad optimization and data services platforms for web and mobile publishers, announced the launch of the BIMvid App. The new app is a mobile video manager for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch that allows reporters in the field to upload videos from their mobile devices for quick online publication. Once uploaded, videos can be published, syndicated, and distributed anytime to any device.
The app is immediately available from the Apple App Store and free to download for all current users of BIMvid. In addition to the BIMvid App, BIM recently released closed captioning technology for live-streaming on the web. This enables publishers to comply with recent FCC regulations.
