Prodigy Ventures Inc. Launches iVideo - 1st Short Form Video Sharing App on Apple TV
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 11, 2015) - Prodigy Ventures Inc. (TSXV: PGV) ("Prodigy" or the "Company") today announced the launch of iVideo for Apple TV.
iVideo is the first short form video sharing platform available on Apple TV. iVideo comes to life on the big screen with a compelling new social video experience. With Apple TV you can sit back and enjoy all the great iVideo content from around the world. iVideo users create content on their iPhone or iPad to share with the iVideo community, friends and family, on Apple TV and their mobile devices. Apple TV users can check out what's trending, see who's nearby, and follow their favourites.
On iPhones and iPads, users can also create and share videos and join in the discussions. iVideo saves all new videos to the iVideo Cloud, and to the user's Camera Roll or iCloud, for easy uploading to Instagram, Vine or other social media platforms. iVideo is also a social video hub, with auto-uploading to Facebook (YouTube and others coming soon). iVideo's unique design is built to enhance every aspect of shooting, sharing and watching videos. It has a 4-way split screen camera mode that can be easily accessed with a simple gesture. Live special effects filters can be pre-selected and changed while recording. In player mode, the split screen can play four videos at once.
In its first iterations, iVideo was the only split-screen video camera and special effects application in Apple's App Store. With almost no marketing effort, iVideo reached over 150,000 downloads in its first eighteen months as a free video camera app. It has a world-wide user base, and has reached the Top 100 list in the Photos and Video category of the Apple App Store in many countries.
Apple Watch and Android apps for iVideo are under construction. These platforms are expected to launch in December, 2015 and January, 2016.
Prodigy's CEO, Tom Beckerman, commented, "We are very excited to be the first to launch a short form video sharing app on Apple TV. Our goal with iVideo has been to bring a fun, fresh and unique user experience to short form social video, across a diverse range of popular platforms. We are delighted to extend that experience and welcome Apple TV users to the iVideo community."

iVideo can be downloaded from the App Store on your Apple TV by searching for iVideo in the App Store app, or on your iPhone or iPad from https://itunes.apple.com/app/ivideo/id525718595?mt=8.
