Online video platform VMIX has rolled out an open-source video gallery demo application for the iPad that's designed to let developers build out custom video iPad applications quickly.
Developers can sign up for a VMIX trial account and download code for the iPad demo, which gives them the tools they need to customize and showcase video-powered applications on the Apple tablet. The release coincides with developers meeting at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, June 7 to 11, in San Francisco. VMIX said next month it will also launch a video software-development kit to streamline development for Apple iPad, iPhone, Google Android and other mobile devices.
Co-founder and CTO Greg Kostello said the VMIX iPad Demo App gives developers the ability to "quickly build on a single platform to create a seamless video experience for viewers across all of their mobile applications and web properties."
Kostello said the app will appeal to an array of companies looking to maximize the impact of their online video.
"Video-enabled mobile apps have become a critical channel and your technical team doesn't have time to re-invent the wheel," he said.
VMIX earlier this month named turnaround specialist Patrick Burns CEO and president, replacing Mike Glickenhaus, who had been at the helm since 2008. The company has a strong presence in the media and entertainment industriues.
