RitzPix.com, E-Commerce Division of Ritz Camera & Image, Launches Online Video Gallery

WASHINGTON, DC — 07/20/10 — RitzPix.com, the online retail imaging site for Ritz Camera & Image, continues to expand its growing portfolio of imaging services with the launch of its new Video Gallery section that allows subscribers to share and showcase all of their video media in a safe and secure, password protected resource. An extension to the Web site’s online photo album offerings, subscribers are now able to host and share photos and videos in a single destination.

Developed by DigitalPost Interactive, based on the company’s award-winning interactive digital media platform, the new section features advanced video technology that allows consumers to organize, manage, edit, share and store any type of video file in a secure environment. Built with easy to use tools that upload videos in three simple steps, users can create unlimited albums that are easily accessible. The free RitzPix Video Editor tool offers user-friendly editing capabilities that make it effortless to crop the video timeline, combine multiple video clips together through a storyboard, and add transitions. Once the videos have been finalized consumers can instantly share with friends and family. In the second phase, customized video e-cards that showcase your videos in fun and creative cards and announcements will be available within the video galleries.

“With the increase in video capabilities on cameras and cell phones as well as the growing market of pocket camcorders such as Flip cameras, video is becoming a more popular method for capturing life’s important images,” says Peter Tahmin, vice president of RitzPix.com and Online Retail. “As a leader in the imaging industry, we want to make sure that we offer our customers every possible option for all of their imaging needs, whether that’s through pictures, videos or artwork, they can upload it to our Web site and edit, save or share it as needed.”

Launching in the second phase of the section, subscribers will also be able to access, manage and share their video galleries through more than 2,000 kiosks located in nearly 300 Ritz Camera & Image stores throughout the United States.
