CNN Digital: How to use clip-and-share for tonight’s debate

CNN White House Correspondent Brianna Keilar demoes the clip-and-share editing feature that viewers can use during tonight’s debate.

For four nights in October, CNN will present its live TV broadcast and offer unrestricted access to the network’s presidential debate programming through CNN.com and via CNN’s apps for iPhone and iPad. From 7 PM to midnight, October 3, 11, 16 and 22, anyone with an internet or mobile connection can view CNN TV’s news, analysis and live coverage. Displayed in a brilliant 768 x 432 HD video player, complete with closed captioning, CNN’s full coverage will air on CNN.com/debates. A truly interactive destination, CNN.com/debates will feature companion content including a live blog, on-demand videos and articles, candidate profiles, social media integrations and a Social Buzz meter. In addition, CNN.com will debut new clip-and-share video editing features for the debates. With DVR-like controls, clip-and-share makes everyone a CNN editor. Users can quickly fast-forward and rewind to the perfect start and end points to create powerful video clips, straight from the live feed. Clips can be shared with friends and followers directly through Facebook and Twitter. Once shared to these social circles, users can watch back the moments and create a direct URL or embed code for blogs and websites, and share their must-see moments via email, LinkedIn, or Google+.
