This just in from FLIP......
Cisco announced the newest member of its groundbreaking Flip Video(TM) line, the Flip
SlideHD(TM). It's an all-new Flip, with an all-new form factor, designed to make it even more fun to
capture, watch and share HD videos anytime, anywhere. With Flip SlideHD, active consumers and
families can record up to four hours of HD video, or store up to 12 hours of content, and then view it
instantly with a stunning slide-up full widescreen.
"Since its launch less than three years ago, Flip Video has changed the way the world captures and
shares video,” said Jonathan Kaplan, senior vice president and general manager of Cisco Consumer
Products. "The addition of the exciting new SlideHD to the Flip family allows consumers to take their
life with them wherever they go and easily share those experiences with everyone around them.”
With SlideHD, anyone can capture an event and then relive the moment with immediate playback as
friends gather around. In addition, with up to 12 hours of storage, SlideHD makes it easy for people to
bring their videos and photos with them as they travel or meet up with friends or family. It's like
having a portable life book for spontaneous viewing anywhere. SlideHD's 3-inch widescreen playback
makes it ideal for many occasions such as entertaining the kids with their own personal video show or
fine-tuning a tennis serve.
The Flip SlideHD is the first Flip Video camera that lets consumers shoot up to four hours of HD video
or store up to 12 hours of videos, photos, and content from Flip channels(TM). SlideHD is also the first
Flip to enable real-time video sharing on a stunning 3-inch widescreen with a unique slide-up design.
SlideHD's simple touch screen and innovative slide strip make it easy and fun to quickly navigate
through your library to locate a video or photo.
Like Flip's popular and stylish Mino line, SlideHD lets users design their own camcorder to make it
uniquely their own. Users can also choose from thousands of designs from artists, leading design
firms, celebrities, and iconic brands, or they can easily upload their own image to create a one-of-a-
kind camcorder.
The new Flip SlideHD joins the popular Flip Video family which includes the Flip Ultra(TM) and Flip
Mino(TM) lines. Like all Flip models, the SlideHD is pre-loaded with the proprietary FlipShare(TM)
software that allows consumers to easily organize, create and share their videos. Using a PC or Mac,
Flip video content can be instantly uploaded, both privately and publicly, and ready for one-click
sharing. From social media sites – Facebook, MySpace and YouTube -- to email, mobile devices, Flip
Channels, and the TV; FlipShare is the easiest solution for consumers to share their videos.
Since the debut of the Flip Video family of video cameras in 2007, more than four million have been
sold and millions of videos have been shared using FlipShare software.
