Animoto Celebrates Five Years With Six Million Registered Users

NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Animoto, the online video creation service that empowers anyone to create and share extraordinary videos, today reported 50 percent year-over-year growth of registered users; the company has now surpassed six million registered users and 30 million videos created. Animoto also announced today that it secured US Patent No. 8,347,213 for its Cinematic Technology that automatically generates audiovisual works, and released the " I Love NY" video style — its most cinematically advanced video style to date.

A leader in video creation, Animoto's newly-patented Cinematic Technology makes it easy to create a personalized video in just minutes from a computer or mobile device.

Customers know that with Animoto's sophisticated yet "click of a button" technology, there's no longer a need to compromise high-quality for ease of use.

"Throughout our five years, we've maintained the same vision—to inspire people to share their lives using the magic of video," said Brad Jefferson, CEO and co-founder of Animoto. "We deeply believe that video is magical when done right, and we're proud of our pioneering role in democratizing the ability to create great-looking video. We have the team, talent and resources to continue leading the industry and look forward to the next five years."

Milestone highlights from the past year include:
  • Released a " Best of 2012 Facebook video" product that intelligently selects the best photos from a Facebook user and crafts a personalized video narrative set to music
  • Launched a free Android app enabling users to create videos entirely on their mobile devices (a free iPhone app is also available)
  • Moved into new office space in New York's Greenwich Village, upgrading from 5,000 square feet to 15,000 square feet
