Cinema8 is an R&D company at its core, meaning that our platforms are constantly evolving and enhancing. We create technology. Part of this is due to our constant research; a key part of that research is analyzing the market and its players. On this page, we will demonstrate how over time Cinema8 progressed and excelled to become the leading interactive video platform in the market.
We started developing Cinema8 as an online content-authoring platform based on videos. And in that sense, right from the start, we established differences in functionalities compared to interactive video tools in the market.
While competitors fundamentally change in each vertical industry, the capabilities we have for all industries and sometimes for a specific industry formed our core unique reason for preference by users.
While developing the platform, the initial market we were competing in was the online education market. There were already a couple of well-known top brands in the market. We first examined all their capabilities and implemented them into Cinema8. Then we went on further to extend our functionalities towards what the competition did not have such as:
We evolved Cinema8 into a video delivery platform. Many new applications for corporate video distribution were developed. New features like Authorization, Dynamic CDN Switching, OTT, Live Broadcasting, and such come to live.
Once again, there were big players in the market to compete, some may be known to any common internet user. We knew the importance of Storage & Streaming so we brought in Cinema8 Version two with renewed Video Encode-Decode Infrastructure, improved 4K-8K video support, and the addition of Dynamic subtitles, Dynamic multi-sound videos.
Even though we are an interactive video platform, our storage and streaming services also act as a big decisive factor for clients to switch from competition to us. Clients see how our services differ in terms of flexibility, integration, loading times, and budget.
Finally, we have set our sights on being the best interactive video solution out there. There was a lot of competition in this field but we quickly implemented all standard features to compete with video branching and interactive video platforms in the market. And as always, we went further into making Cinema8 unique and excelled at that as well.
In recent years, our top competitors have been acquired by worldwide known brands. Therefore they gained more market access, more financial security, more resources, and such. However, that did not prevent us from developing our platform into a much more capable, functional, user-friendly, and desirable platform than theirs.
With the ‘’Widget Infrastructure’’ we have developed, clients can develop their plug-and-play, customizable and reusable applications and services on our platform. This converted Cinema8 to being perceived not as a tool but as a ‘’framework’’. Many startups have developed their own customs solutions on the platform.
Cinema8 can perform all the functions of standard video development tools and more. Our solution does not require rendering, it can integrate after effects, custom widgets can be developed, and ready-to-use libraries for animations, lower thirds, hot spots, player controls, buttons, etc. are available to be used.
Today, Cinema8 has turned it into an In Video Software development environment that offers unlimited development opportunities by integrating different technologies and has even been started to be used in research and development projects.
There are lots of new capabilities coming into the platform but we do not want to reveal them just yet. Nevertheless, you could say that will be game changers. In the meantime, you can follow the latest add features on our New Features page.
