Enounce Launches MySpeedTM Online Video Playback Application for Dramatic Time Savings

Enables Users to Control Speed While Viewing Online Videos, Cutting Viewing Time in Half

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Enounce Incorporated (www.enounce.com), the preeminent provider of variable speed playback technologies, today announced immediate availability of its MySpeedTM software, allowing users to control the playback speed as they watch YouTube® and other online or downloadable videos across the Internet.

The Enounce® MySpeed application is the first solution to allow users to speed up or slow down the playback rate of Adobe's Flash-formatted videos without any "chipmunk" quality to the sound during speed up. Users can change the playback speed of videos they watch on YouTube, CNN, NBC, ABC, ESPN and other websites, as well as corporate training, educational courses and seminars, and other Flash video material. The easy-to-use MySpeed slider bar appears on a user's desktop and allows real-time speed changes whenever a video is playing in a web-browser or standalone player. A free seven-day trial is available so consumers can try before they buy.

MySpeed benefits users by allowing them to:

  • Speed up videos to save time, or watch more material in less time
  • Slow down videos to learn or take notes
  • Increase learning with greater comprehension and less frustration.

"It's empowering to control the speed of a lecture or presentation to suit your personal viewing style," says Don Hejna, president of Enounce. "Whether you're a student viewing course videos, a professional earning Continuing Education Units, a sales representative watching field training material, or a YouTube junkie with a thirst to view more videos, you'll save time and get information at your ideal viewing speed."

Enounce technology makes it possible to watch video at any speed between one-third and more than twice normal, saving more than 30 minutes on a one-hour video without missing a thing. Skimming at up to five times normal speed is also supported. Downloadable Flash (FLV) files can be watched at the user's desired speed offline, such as on an airplane or at home. Whether speeding up to save time, watching more video in a given time, or slowing down to better understand foreign language or educational material, Enounce MySpeed technology enables users to get more from video - information they would otherwise have missed.
