October 28, 2005 Mitsue-Links Releases Videocast Service for Business Activities

Mitsue-Links Co., Ltd. (Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Masashi Takahashi; hereinafter "Mitsue-Links") has released Videocast Service which distributes video messages from website using videocasting technology. Videocasting is a means of making video data available via the internet. Videocasts are essentially video blogs. As video data can now be distributed via RSS, providing that users have an aggregator (data gathering software) such as iTunes or iPodder, they can obtain updated video clips automatically without actually accessing the host website. What is more, as users can view downloaded clips on their iPod or other portable video player, videocasting offers the major advantage of enabling users to enjoy contents regardless of what time it is (time shift) and where they are (location free)

Advantages of the Videocast Service

Even websites that were previously static can now express themselves vividly and communicate information as if it were live. It is even possible to relay information instantly, as and when it is updated!

Example Uses

  • Communicating messages to staff or IR information to investors from top management using video image
  • Enabling developers and planning staff to express their feelings when explaining a product's merits
  • Enabling employees to talk about matters such as company culture and work motivation on recruitment and employment sites

Scope of Service

Contents Production

We offer a range of total production services, from drawing up plans and scripts for video clips to arranging and filming professional casters/interviewers and producing background music.

Distribution Services

We provide any necessary support for server arrangements, distribution services and RSS production.
