Groundbreaking app includes exclusive original music from Academy Award®-winner Hans Zimmer; new christmas themes added
UJAM, the online music creation platform, has announced the release of the new video app, VJAM. With VJAM, users can add Hollywood scope and style to their own mobile videos, transforming them into spectacular movies within moments. The groundbreaking app is available exclusively for the iOS platform on iTunes.
With VJAM, mobile videos become something far greater – they become movies. While other video apps only provide video filters and minimal soundtrack possibilities, VJAM utilizes innovative, patent-pending technology to create the highest-quality, perfectly matching soundtrack to your video. Unlike static images or even standard mobile videos, VJAM videos allow users to expertly marry sound and images to artistically share the moments that matter.
Among VJAM’s most extraordinary features is its soundtrack composition capability. VJAM automatically fits musical themes exactly to the length of a video while maintaining the elegance of the musical composition. Say goodbye to awkward and abrupt music cutouts that ruin the mood of a video. Of all the video apps currently available, only VJAM’s cutting-edge technology allows users to harness the power of a real composer. Incorporating a stunning range of experience, intelligence, and innovative technology, VJAM offers all the abilities of an amazing film composer and skilled film editor working in perfect tandem.
“VJAM adds that ‘touch of Hollywood’ to everyday video,’ says Academy Award®-winning composer and UJAM co-founder, Hans Zimmer. “You have to see and hear it to believe it.”
VJAM users can either record a new video to customize or choose a favorite from their Camera Roll. They can then select from 11 beautifully designed themes plus 3 downloadable Christmas specials, each with amazing special effects and an ideal musical score to match the video’s mood. The meticulously crafted themes span the infinite breadth of popular movie genres, with options including the black-and-white “Slapstick,” the action-packed “Slo Mo Hero,” and the romantic “Summer Love.” The diverse palette of VJAM themes enables users to fully express and enhance the storytelling ability of their videos while also boosting their emotional impact and individual identity.
Every VJAM theme comes complete with high quality soundtracks provided exclusively by UJAM partner Extreme Music, the worldwide production music division of Sony/ATV Music Publishing and the acknowledged industry leaders in production music for TV and Broadcast worldwide. In addition, the revolutionary app includes an all-new original soundtrack composed exclusively for VJAM by Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight Rises, The Lion King, Gladiator). All VJAM theme music is free and completely legal, preventing banning by copyright filters.
Once a one-of-a-kind video is complete, VJAM lets users share or save their work within seconds. Videos can be posted directly to Facebook from within the app itself or instantly saved to Camera Roll for future sharing. With their stunning effects and music, VJAM-customized movies will earn countless more likes on Socialcam, Viddy, and other video sharing services.
While other video apps limit videos to 15 or 20 seconds, the free VJAM app allows users to create movies up to 30 seconds. The in-app Pro upgrade (limited-time offer $1.99, regular $4.99) of VJAM will feature no video length limitations and additional exclusive themes. As if that weren’t enough, a variety of new themes – both free and for purchase – will be regularly released in-app, allowing for an always-fresh VJAM experience.
VJAM is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
