WellcomeMat awarded video patent

Chaptering technique could change the way consumers find, watch and share videos

After a five-year application process, online video publishing and distribution platform WellcomeMat has been awarded a U.S. patent for the process it uses to chapter videos — a technique the company expects will revolutionize the way consumers find, watch and share videos.

Streaming video is often touted as an ideal medium for marketing homes for sale. But few real estate listing portals are set up to take full advantage of it, said WellcomeMat co-founder Christian Sterner.
