SAN DIEGO, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Givit (, a leading provider of mobile and social video solutions, today announced the public beta release of its private video sharing service for consumers.

Givit makes it easy to share personal video captured on any device with select family and friends. The beta offers a free service with secure email sharing to recipients on computers, tablets, phones and other Smart devices.

The new service is available at, through a desktop app for Windows and Mac OS, and on a soon-to-be-released mobile app for the iPhone.  An Android version will follow shortly, with the first full release of Givit expected to launch by the end of the year.  

President and CEO of Givit Greg Kostello said Givit makes it possible to share videos from any camera, anytime and anywhere, and do it privately.

"Using Givit is as easy as using email, but it gives users fine control over who can view and re-share the videos they send. The open sharing solutions currently on the market are neither focused on privacy nor optimized for video, so we anticipate Givit having mass appeal across a broad range of personal and commercial applications."  

Kostello added that integrated cloud storage allows Givit to keep your videos in reach wherever you go. "With no restrictions on the number or size of videos you can share, Givit is personal video sharing without limits.

"It's also the only media sharing service that can integrate, through the desktop application, with any digital camera. As a result, we think people will be eager to try the beta release."
