Mannheim, Germany, March 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Alugha announced the launch of the first official version of its player and the optimized video manager. From now on you can access and use the free basic version on the alugha website as well as the extended versions of alugha 1.0. Online video producers, including beginners and “prosumers” can extend their videos with additional audio tracks in minutes. Not only does this increase each video’s reach, but it also dramatically reduces the storage space needed and the publishing internet traffic. Version 1.0 has, among other things, a producer page, a single video player, thumbnails for each movie and a multilingual back-end. Additionally, there are analysis and SEO tools available.
In the past, those who had been producing videos in multiple languages (e.g. movie trailers, tutorial videos etc.), only had the possibility to upload them separately. In 2014, alugha found the solution to reduce this process down to just one video. Depending on the browser language, videos are automatically played or replayed in it’s correct language. The video footage and respective audio files simply get synchronized via alugha’s video uploader and can be embedded easily.
The first official version leaves little to be desired. Thus, the optimized and user friendly video manager as well as the clear thumbnails allow clips to be arranged as desired. Single videos can be watched on the single video page without annoying advertisements. They adjust automatically to the size and resolution of the user’s device and the preferred language can be chosen. Furthermore, SEO data is sent daily to Google, Bing and Yahoo, so that ranking visibility increases.
“With our new player, we’d like to give video producers the option to develop and hone their own profiles,” expresses CEO and multi-media expert, Bernd Korz. “There are approaches to support young filmmakers with creator spaces which increase the quality of their entire content. A well made film alone doesn’t ensure long-lasting attention. Multilingual content, an excellent overview system and finally the producers’ freedom to design one’s own video site are the key to success.” Korz aims to occupy an important position within the segment of international video portals. With the multilingualism of video footage this has been achieved, as it remains globally unique. The technologies used by alugha, like the cloud based and self-hosted services are not only modern, they are also service oriented. alugha isn’t just simple, alugha is simply smart.

Alugha is Swahili and literally means “one language.” For the first time, worldwide operating companies are able to only upload one video instead of multiple videos in multiple languages. With help of the alugha video uploader, all video material and the respective audio tracks are put together with one click and then are ready to be embedded multilingually. This approach not only saves time, it even saves enormous traffic and storage space helping the internet become quicker and greener.
The alugha GmbH was founded in April, 2014 by Gregor Greinert and Bernd Korz in Mannheim, Germany. Korz is backed by his family and 15 additional employees from the IT- and creative sector.
