Video in Print is a new technology from Americhip that enables a paper- thin video player to be embedded in a magazine, book or other product. The video can be up to two hours in length. The device is a small LCD screen with a flash memory. When a page is opened, the video is triggered to start automatically. The lithium battery lasts for about an hour before you have to recharge it through the USB port. The USB port can also be used to put your own videos on the device.
These devices will be everywhere in the next few months. The player will make its debut in September, appearing in a CBS Network and PepsiCo joint ad in select editions of the US showbiz magazine Entertainment Weekly. The selected editions will go only to subscribers in Los Angeles and New York City areas.
For the wedding videographer, this device will be a perfect add-on. John Goolsby, a leading event videographer is already using the device.
