VIMEO INCREASES UPLOAD LIMITS
All of you budding Bela Tarrs, take note: Vimeo has increased its upload limits to 5 GB. Okay, that won’t you get into Satantango territory, but it will let you stream two-and-a-half hours of HD content from the video sharing site. That’s more than enough for the majority of indie features and docs. The press release is below.
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2011 – Online video sharing site Vimeo(R), an operating business of IAC [NASDAQ: IACI], today announced that it has increased the size of a single file that a Vimeo Plus member can upload from 2GB to 5GB.
As one of the only video sharing websites without limits on video length, this increased file size option gives Vimeo Plus members the ability to upload long-form content without compromising quality through heavy file compression. On average, 5GB is enough space for roughly 2.5 hours of HD video. Creators can now share their feature films, full-length documentaries, or a whole Little League game in HD.
“Since we launched our Vimeo Plus service two years ago, we have continually added to and rounded out its offerings,” said Dae Mellencamp, Vimeo’s General Manager. “We continually strive to provide our subscriber base with the best and most robust features available.”
