BCAST Labs Launches "Video-Validate" - a Mobile/Web E-Commerce Authentication and Verification Platform Leveraging Short Form Video for Consumers and HR Professionals
Reston, Virginia-based BCAST Labs announced that it has launched Video-Validate (“Vv”), an internet-based platform using video designed to fight online fraud, misrepresentation and cat-fishing. Concurrently, BCAST is launching "VideoValidate-Recruiter," a similarly functioning portal with additional features for recruiters and HR professionals. http://videovalidate.org
VideoValidate is an Oracle cloud housed web platform that uses short-form video and location data to provide a novel new way to get an additional layer of authentication of individuals unknown that you intend to meet or engage in commerce. VideoValidate is free, browser-based and does not require a user to download an app or register to use on desktop or mobile devices. You can access the VideoValidate Beta link and get a more detailed description of how VideoValidate works here: http://videovalidate.org or access the VV Recruiting Portal at http://vvrecruit.com
Mike Hodge – CEO of BCAST Labs explains: "As is clear, video is now becoming a part of everyday life which will only increase with emerging 5g mobile networks. With that in mind, we created VideoValidate a platform designed to enhance individual security by providing a way to make a simple request of someone you are interacting with online to provide additional authentication using a short self-deleting video with location data. Our focus groups of targeted consumers raved at the prospect of VideoValidate specifically for online users of dating sites and because it is free to use and does not require a user to download an app or register, we think the rapid growth prospects are considerable. We have also received considerable interest from recruiting firms looking for a simple and cost effective way to further vet employment candidates through the use of video. In that regard, we added a VideoValidate portal specifically for recruiters at http://vvrecruit.com. Our strategy is to launch VideoValidate as a stand-alone service and further to partner with and integrate VideoValidate into dating & e-commerce and other such sites/apps that could take advantage of another layer of authentication for their users and revenue share on advertising.”
VideoValidate is free to use and will be supported by an advertising model with revenue sharing opportunities with partners. The Beta Version of VideoValidate is email only with texting becoming available in early 2019.
