Gnzo Launches a Revolutionary Video-Based Social Networking App for The iPhone

The Gnzo App Brings Video Snippet Sharing and Simultaneous Multi-Video Playback to Social Networking

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Today, Gnzo Inc. has announced the launch of their revolutionary, video-based, social networking application called "Gnzo" (pronounced "goon-zow"). Gnzo allows users to upload 6-second video snippets so that you can share them with your social network. Users can see multiple videos from their social network playing back simultaneously, either on their iPhone or on the Gnzo website. Gnzo's proprietary multi-video compression and streaming technology, called "fabric video", allows users to view the playback of thirty to fifty videos simultaneously, on a single screen, providing an unprecedented user experience.

"Today, most of us communicate with our social network using primarily text and photos. However, a six-second video can communicate a lot more." says Toshikazu Shinohara, CEO of Gnzo. "Imagine seeing your social network feed entirely in video, with thirty to fifty simultaneous videos playing back on one screen. It's so much more fun and you can take in a lot more information in a very short time. We are very excited to be able to launch this at DEMO Fall 2012."
