Panasonic has released the next version of Viaway App on its Viera TV platform that includes a new Cloud service to offer consumers the ability to easily access and play their music, video and movies on Panasonic high definition TVs. Panasonic, one of the leading TV brands globally, is the first company to launch Personal Cloud service developed by Viaway for the connected TVs.
Viaway Cloud makes a difference by making user’s music, video, movies seamlessly accessible from Panasonic TV’s and Android devices via the Internet Connection worldwide – at home, at work or on vacation. As an incentive for users the company is offering a free one week trial which includes 1 GB free storage, 1 hour of delivery, open device access, transcoding and secure hosting!
“We’re thrilled to announce the release of the new version of Viaway on Panasonic. My favorite thing about our Cloud service is that I can take all videos of my daughter that I took with my mobile phone, upload them to the Cloud and watch them on my flat screen TV a few moments later. Anywhere I go, I can share my special memories with my friends and family,” Viaway’s founder Vlad Kroutik said.
Updated Viaway version also features new TV & Video on-demand service and offers access to the huge library of free and paid content. U.S. Internet users watched an average of 21.8 hours of online video content in February, 2012, according to a report by comScore. There’s no doubt that consumption of media streaming on devices, especially on connected TVs, like Panasonic Viera, will be growing exponentially.
Viaway expects that Smart TVs and mobile devices will see most of the growth in video streaming as people enjoy watching video entertainment on the big TV screens or on the go instead of crouched over computers. The viewing experience becomes seamless across devices: with Viaway users can start watching on their TV or Blu-ray and continue watching on their tablets or smart phones.
Viaway App is available for immediate install on Panasonic TVs in Viera Market. According to Panasonic, application is released in the United States and Latin America. It will also be released in Europe and other regions in the near future.
