LOS ANGELES, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Woo Media, the live interactive video network leading the social entertainment phenomenon, today unveiled MonsterChat, the next generation group video communications platform. MonsterChat is an innovative, interactive video platform that allows users to connect in live chats. It also lets them join ongoing topic related video chat rooms to engage new people. Woo Media is the only company to offer interactive video across multiple engagement models, i.e. group chat, 1:1 chat, random 1:1 chat, and speed dating.
According to Hit wise data, by 2013, 500 million users will be engaging in interactive video, so Woo Media is leading the natural evolution of IM/Chat from a single dimension to live group video chat. Now consumers can, for the first time, experience a fully immersive interactive video experience with a full set of social features.
Requiring no downloads, Monster Chat allows up to 24 people to chat simultaneously in real-time, and aggregate across IM platforms, such as Facebook, Yahoo!, AIM, and Twitter. It is the only true in browser-based platform aimed at live social entertainment and chatting with friends - or finding new ones – around shared topics or interests. Regardless of whether users are "San Francisco foodies", "NYC Bike Lane Warriors", "Little Monsters", or "LA Dodger fans", now they can bounce from chat room to chat room, connecting with friends and finding other people with similar taste. For users on the go, MonsterChat plans to be accessible on both iOS and Android mobile platforms, including iPad and Android tablets, later this summer.
"We created MonsterChat to specifically enhance consumers' live online social experience and provide an easy way to connect with friends via video. This kind of innovation is something users of our other interactive video properties like WooMe and Shuffle People have come to expect from us." said Stephen Stokols, CEO of Woo Media. "Woo Media is the only video-led social entertainment network that actively engages the trend-setting, online-centric 18-35 age group across multiple media properties."
