Trivop produces videos for hotels through a worldwide network of filmmakers, allowing travelers to virtually visit the hotels online before they book. Funded by individual investors, the company plans to expand across 10 major European cities and is moving into the United States, Asia, the Middle East and Africa by the end of 2007.The ambitious plans make sense, considering that Trivop doesn't need to localize content; video images don't need to be translated. The startup already has videos of hotels in 173 countries and claims 30,000 unique views per month.
