“It’s not unusual for photos from a family event to become scattered across multiple social sites, computers, or even e-mails. Pixelcast offers a new solution by enabling users to interact and collaborate with one another to create jointly-produced albums, or experiences. Collaboration is only part of the fun. Pixelcast also ensures that photos and videos uploaded to an experience can only be accessed by someone who is invited to view, edit, or contribute to it,” said Dave Chaimson, vice president of global marketing for Sony Creative Software.
“We’re thrilled to introduce Pixelcast as a new service for our users to create unique experiences to share and collaborate with friends and family. Check out the introductory video at Pixelcast.com for information on uploading and sharing to the Pixelcast cloud and, while you’re there, give the service a try by signing up for a free account,” Chaimson added.
