Sony has recently announced that it will be offering its “eyeVio HD Pro” service. Through this service, consumer will be able to post and share HDTV video files through the company’s video sharing portal, which is to be called “eyeVio.” The company has actually been running the service since April 2007, but has only recently launched it in Japan.

With the new technology, consumers will be able to view video clips that they have uploaded to the eyeVIO HD Pro on their televisions. In order to do so, they only need to connect to the company’s BRX-NT1 network TV box. Or, they can connect through their Playstation 3 console with their televisions.

In order to post HDTV video clips, consumers only need to apply for an account with the eyeVIO HD Pro service, which can be accomplished by visiting the company’s website. Those with accounts can then upload HDTV video files as large as 500 Mbytes. They can also post HDTV video files and can then invite up to five people to join in the service.

Consumers will need to download Adobe’s Flash Player 9 in order to view the videos on their PCS. The company also recommends having a 2 GHz Core 2 Duo microprocessor from Intel, or something even better in order to download and view videos. The system will also require having 2 Gbytes or more of memory as well as the Windows CP SP3 or Mac OS X 10.5 system or better.
