One obstacle of using streaming video is the fact that if you use existing video with small graphics, your viewers will not be able to see them. A new Web company has developed a new technology to combat that problem, and it also gives Web video viewers frame-by-frame control of the video. SeeItFirst.com is a Web service that will post your video. They use a new technology that allows viewers to get high-resolution stills from streamed video. This gives videographers a new resource for finding still images to include in their personal productions. It also allows for advertisers to run ads with disclaimers at the bottom. Even if viewers cannot read the disclaimer as it streams by, they can pause the commercial and read the disclaimer in the high-resolution still. This clears a legal issue with streaming video advertisements, so look for more streamed ads soon.
