How to Convert Business Videos To Be Compatible on Different Devices with Movavi Video Converter

One of the prerequisites of distributing business videos between colleagues or to clients is that you will need to be able to ensure they’re compatible with other devices. After all there’s no point sending an important video to someone if they aren’t able to view it on the device that they’re using.

The problem with trying to convert business videos so that they’re compatible with different devices is in figuring out what formats (or codecs) to use. Because every device out there tends to have different quirks when it comes to compatibility, it can be confusing and tedious.

To make things a lot easier, you should try out Movavi Video Converter. True to its name it is a video converter – but the reason it stands out is how easy it will make converting your business videos to be compatible with various devices.

If you want to use Movavi Video Converter as a basic video format converter you only need to add the video, choose a format, and click ‘Convert’. Assuming you’re not sure which format to use however, you don’t need to look it up – and can rely on the hundreds of presets that are available for different devices and platforms.

When you select any of these presets, Movavi Video Converter will automatically utilize the best possible video format and settings. As such you’ll be able to know for sure that your business video will be converted to a format that is compatible for that device.

Although that is really more than enough of a reason to use Movavi Video Converter, the fact of the matter is that it also has numerous other features that may pique your interest. It can create animated GIFs, grab screenshots, extract audio tracks, adjust sound levels, or edit videos to enhance their quality, cut and join video segments, insert personalized text fields, and crop or rotate the video frame.

Add to that the fact that Movavi Video Converter is also fully capable of converting image and audio files and you should be able to see just how powerful the software truly is. In short it can help you to do far more than simply make sure your business videos are compatible with various devices, and will give you the means to prepare, improve and optimize how you use them.

Saphibeat Technologies Launches Kickstarter Campaign for PhiPal

PhiPAL is Game Changer for Sports Enthusiasts, Boosting Safety and Augmenting the Outdoor Experience with Real-Time Performance Data

Redwood City, CA – October 18, 2016SAPHIBEAT Technologies , a Silicon Valley-based startup focused on developing leading-edge technologies for wearable safety devices, today announced the launch of its Kickstarter campaign or PhiPal A game-changing adventure monitor that can recognnize if the user has suffered a serious accident, PhiPAL is a product platform that uses an activity monitor mounted on a sports helmetPhiPAL works by providing real-time performance data that can be used for tracking the user and social sharing, and can automatically call for help in the event of an accident, no matter where or when.

PhiPAL was developed by SAPHIBEAT co-founders Carlo Ciaramelletti, a technologist and futurist with a deep understanding of the intersection of technology and business, and Marco Cavalli, an experienced engineer pushing innovation and technology to improve how people live, work and play.

With its proprietary machine-learning algorithm for accident recognition, PhiPAL provides a much-needed solution that can save lives of outdoor enthusiasts by recognizing when an accident has taken place. If the user is unconscious, PhiPAL automatically requests help, contacting teammates and first responders through a cellular phone or satellite connection. In normal mode, PhiPAL can augment the user experience through features such as performance 3D visualization, tracking and challenges.

“Announcing the launch of our Kickstarter campaign today is the culmination of two years of research and development,” said Carlo Ciaramelletti, co-founder. “The idea of PhiPAL came as a result of a ski accident in 2012 when I was skiing in Italy. I was fortunate to make it home safely, but shortly after my accident, another skier crashed in the same area. The day after, he was found dead. No one could find him because nobody knew what happened and where he was. Today we have the technology to make the best use of the ‘golden hour,’ that time after an accident when even one minute can make the difference between a tragedy and just an accident to remember. By changing how we use technology to save people’s lives, we believe that the platform is a valuable companion for any sports activity that requires the use of a helmet.”

Approximately one million people each year are hospitalized as a result of injuries from outdoor sports. Technology has evolved to provide users with a light, portable and enduring solution. PhiPAL is not designed to prevent accidents, but rather, to reduce the risk of an accident from becoming a tragedy, and in today’s world, it has many applications, from the individual sports enthusiast to team sports to first responders. PhiPAL is essentially the GoPro of safety for outdoor sports.

With PhiPAL, users can:

  •       Automatically contact first responders thought multiple communication channels
  •       Ensure access to prolonged, sustainable power through advanced power management technologies
  •       Integrate tracking dynamics to help improve performance
  •       Log into an Adventure Planner to discover new trails experienced by other outdoor adventurers
  •       Create and share trails of anticipated routes and send progress notifications to teammates, family and friends
  •       Fit PhiPAL on multiple outdoor sports helmets
