WeVideo Puts Stunning 4K Ultra HD Video Editing in the Hands of Everyone

Over a Billion Users of Smartphones, Action Cams and Digital Cameras Finally Have An Easy Way to Create, Share and Enjoy Full Quality 4K Videos.

Menlo Park, CA February 22, 2017 - WeVideo today announced the addition of full support for 4K UltraHD (UHD) video to its leading cloud-based video editing and creation platform. This is the first time a web app has provided direct, unlimited, real-time support for creating and sharing pro-quality 4K video in a browser. WeVideo is completely Cloud-based, so 4K is available immediately to WeVideo subscribers—there is no software to update or new hardware requirements to worry about.

Users with 4K media files can now take advantage of the entire WeVideo creative palette for video editing, graphics, green screen, special effects, speed control and more. Thanks to the all-new WeVideo JumpStart™ feature, users can start editing immediately without waiting for the video to upload to the Cloud or to be imported into software—they just click on locally stored 4K media files and go. WeVideo is built for the future in HTML5, providing the speed, responsiveness, security and expandability needed for the best and most complete browser-based video editing experience.

WeVideo lets the user freely mix and match 4K video, including H.265, VP8 and VP9 formats, with the more than 600 audio, video, and graphics media formats supported by WeVideo. High resolution photos reveal remarkable detail when edited in 4K video using WeVideo. Stored in the Cloud, WeVideo projects can be accessed anywhere, at any time, on any device. Finished projects can be streamed from the web or saved offline to watch on 4K capable TVs, projectors and devices.

WeVideo CEO Krishna Menon said, "Consumers have so many ways to capture stunning 4K Ultra HD video. It's offered on the phones and cameras we carry every day. Frustratingly, making the most of that incredible quality has been almost impossible. At the very least it required consumers to invest in the most expensive hardware and complicated software. Thanks to WeVideo, now everyone can create amazing 4K movies and share them with anyone anywhere. Whatever laptop, desktop or Chromebook you have now, WeVideo offers you a complete, high performance creative video toolkit to turn your incredible 4K footage into spectacular video stories for fun, family, school, and business."

WeVideo also offers options for Flex and Power account holders to export in 4K. 4K is available on all devices currently supported by WeVideo. WeVideo is entirely Cloud-based, enabling it to provide the massive video processing power required for 4K video editing to almost any Windows and Mac laptop or desktop, and even to lighter weight devices such as Chromebooks.
