|"Kamera teams up with Zodiak to launch mobile funny home video channel
Vidiots, a mobile and online TV channel, featuring funny home videos, is the latest offering from online content specialist Kamera and Swedish production company Zodiak.
The channel has already been picked up for distribution by Norwegian publisher “Vi Menn” and Kamera is in advanced negotiations with a number of mobile operators and online publishers worldwide, interested in carrying the comedy content.
Vidiots is based on Zodiak’s extensive archive of more than 6,000 funny home video clips, capturing ordinary people in comical situations. The best clips have been selected and packaged into a mobile comedy TV channel which is available either as a clip service, offering 2 new programs per week with 4-5 bloopers, or as a live streamed channel, depending on individual operators’ requirements.
“Many operators ask for content that allow their customers to kill some time. Funny home videos are a proven success from broadcast television and the format is ideal for mobile consumption,” says Henrik Eklund, CEO of Kamera.
“Real life produces the most astonishing, unbelievably comical situations. And there are no geographical limitations for this kind of content. We look forward to amusing mobile users worldwide,” says Oscar Höglund, Head of Mobile at Zodiak.
Scandinavian mobile specialist Kamera, set up in 1998, is one of the leading players in mobile and online video content distribution. Its advanced technical platform, global approach to content delivery and production, and savvy marketing expertise make Kamera a major player in the new generation of media companies.”
