Vidtur.com Brings Video for Travellers
LONDON, August 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
In response to the ever increasing demand for travel videos from travelers, a TV executive has foundedÂ http://www.Vidtur.comÂ -Â The first video travel website with professional video reviews in 8 different languages about the world's top destinations.
31% of personal tourists and 68% of business people are searching for travel videos before they make any purchase. 28% of the travellers visit a video travel website as part of the research*

While the demand for online videos increases year by year, the supply of travel video guides is limited, and mostly based on user generated content with minimum production value.
Vidtur.com offers travellers a new and engaging video experience. For each destination we produce several videos, covering various topics such as "Travelling with kids", "Travelling on a budget", "Nightlife attractions" as well as specific videos which offer relevant information about designated areas in each city, for example, South bank in London, Montmartre in Paris, Central Park in New York, Hollywood in Los Angeles, Coronado Island in San Diego and so on.
All of the videos presented at Vidtur.com are originally produced and scripted by us, using professional, local talents in each city, by those guaranteeing their objectivity. At Vidtur.com, we understand that travellers around the world prefer to watch videos in their own language, and this is why we offer our library localised into 8 languages. As part of the localisation process, Vidtur.com uses professional scriptwriters and voice talents to ensure the videos are fully adapted for different cultures and traveller needs.
Our challenge in the next few years is to create the largest online video travel library, which is based on original, high-value production - as opposed to user generated content and help satisfying the on growing demand for travel videos.
Vidtur.com was founded by Udi Shapira, the founding director of Ginx TV, the first international video gaming channel, currently available in 20 countries across the globe. Udi founded Ginx TV in the UK in 2007, and was the creative force behind the production of over 5000 videos and 400 hours of programming for the channel.
