New Video Monitoring Service Automatically Searches Consumer Video Sharing Sites Each Day for Video Clips about Companies or Brands; Free Trial Offered
CyberAlert, Inc., the worldwide media monitoring and measurement service, today announced the launch of CyberAlert VDO, the first subscription service that automatically searches and monitors for new video clips posted on video sharing websites. The new video monitoring and clipping service also tracks news videos posted to online news sources.
The new service is designed to assure that corporate communications, public relations, marketing and product management staff are alerted as soon as possible to new consumer-generated video clips containing references to their companies and brands.
CyberAlert VDO automatically monitors 200+ online video sharing and news sites for mentions of key words in the meta tags and text descriptions of video clips. The service searches and tracks over 500,000 new video posts each day including video news clips, TV clips, movie clips, music videos and consumer-generated videos. The service delivers newly posted video clips on the same day or next day.

"CyberAlert VDO can monitor more online video sites, more thoroughly, more accurately and at lower cost than using in-house staff. In addition, the CyberAlert VDO service provides an online archive that automatically stores each client's video clips, including hotlink, descriptive text, viewer comments and number of views.” The archive also includes collaborative tools to manage and share video clips.
