Should Video Emails be Monitored by Government?

US Government and large Service Providers monitor cell phones, email, web surfing and telephone traffic. As video email grows in popularity, John Cruz (ImageMind) has concerns it will also get the attention of the US Government and law enforcement.

    SALT LAKE CITY, UT, October 02, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Streaming video offers complete freedom in communication. People can record pretty much anything imaginable to share with others and they do. Streaming video-on-demand grew to become one of the hottest technologies on the Internet today. "Now the market is expanding to user generated video email content" claims John Cruz, Founder of ImageMind Software. The question becomes how much longer will personal video email remain personal?

ImageMind (, was one of the first companies to offer video email, based on streaming technology in 1996. John Cruz designed the proprietary system called Video Express Email and he has been releasing more sophisticated versions since. How it works is the ImageMind authoring tool records a video message from the web cam or imports an existing video clip. The sender types in one or more recipient's email addresses, and then clicks the Send My Video Email button. The video message and other data is encrypted and uploaded to the ImageMind private hosting network that processes the message request and emails it out to the recipient's email address. The recipient receives the ImageMind video email using their standard email software like Outlook, Hotmail or gmail in a branded template. The recipient clicks a Play button or link to begin the video to start streaming direct to their computer for personal and private viewing. The message is seamless, no text to monitor, making it a convenient, more interpersonal form of Internet communication.

"With broadband available around the world, its time for video email to stake its claim as a viable form of communication in the market." said John Cruz. However, as Government's interest in tracking all forms of communication internal and external to the United States, will video email become the next priority for HomeLand Security? Being that the ImageMind video email system is fully automated with little human intervention, it is highly unlikely that the video traffic will be monitored unless mandated by the Government. Until then, up to 35 minutes per video message is being sent worldwide without fear of evesdropping. There are no plans in ImageMind to change the privacy of video email.

ImageMind's new release of video email costs $39 for a one year of unlimited video email sending with upgraded versions to send to cell phones or email lists. Visit to get a copy of Video Express Email.
