Event: Cisco and SM Cinema launches Flip Video™ in the Philippines



Shoot and share is now easy, affordable and fun in the Philippines. Cisco’s Flip Video, the number one pocket camcorder in USA1, launched last night its line of affordable MinoHD™ and UltraHD™ camcorders at SM Cinema 6, Megamall, Mandaluyong City.
I had examined all the three new devices, Flip MinoHD (1 Hour and 2 Hours) and Flip UltraHD (2 Hours), all feature user-friendly simplicity, enhanced High-Definition (HD) video quality, hardware-based image stabilisation and more ways to share videos using the pre-loaded FlipShare™ software. Flip UltraHD tops the list in my wishlist this Christmas and they have demonstrated its quality and functions with editing software showcasing films shot using Flip MinoHD. SM Cinema invited celebrated filmmakers, Ian-Dean Loreños, Augustus N. Reyes, Topel Lee and Francis Xavier Pasion and many more to create thematic short films using the Flip MinoHD.
“In line with SM Cinema’s thrust of fun, exciting and interactive, our partnership with Flip Video was indeed a perfect match since they share the same values as we do.  SM Cinema brings to its loyal patrons not just excellent movie watching experience but creative events and promotions.  The launch event is just a beginning of a partnership with Flip Video that will bring value entertainment to the Filipino people,” Allan Florendo, SM Cinema Marketing Head.


Wrapping up the launch line-up is the new Flip UltraHD that uses standard AAA batteries or a rechargeable battery pack which comes with the product as standard.

All the new Flip Video camcorders come pre-loaded with the latest FlipShare™ software (version 5.9), which helps consumers easily organise, edit and share their videos. In addition to the ease of direct video uploads to Facebook™ and YouTube™, the acclaimed FlipShare software now offers users to share directly to Twitter™FlipShare also includes unlimited and free private sharing which makes sending videos to your friends and family a breeze. For those who are always on-the-go, the FlipShare iPhone app lets you watch and share your videos wherever you are.

The new Flip Video line is available nationwide starting at just PhP10,995 for the Flip MinoHD (1 Hr), offering a video camcorder for every budget.

 I'm so excited to have one this Christmas, it'd be easier to shoot and document events and gatherings with my students. The product will definitely benefit not just the movie enthusiasts but those media and bloggers who'd want to share videos fast and easy with any OS or browser. Students can also use Flip Video to start their career in film making - a great learning tool to improve skills in academic performances.
