A company called Clipisode today launches a new service that is essentially a "talk show in a box" as described by founder Brian Alvey. Similar to the way Anchor now allows anyone to create a professional podcast with the help of simple mobile and web tools, Clipisode does it for video content. With Clipisode, you can record a video that can be shared on any platform – social media, web, text messages – and collect video responses that can then be embedded in the show". ]
The video response feature appears more like a video voice mail call feature.
This is how it works. The content creator will first use Clipisode to record their video, and will receive the link to share the video on social media, on the Web or privately via email, text messaging, etc. When the viewer or the guest clicks on the link, he can answer the question asked by the show's host.
For example, a reporter might ask viewers to think about a question or a creator might ask their fans what they want to see next.
The way that the creator of the video wants to use this feature really depends on the type of video broadcast that he makes.
To give you an idea, during a pre-launch period, the application was tested by AXS TV to promote its next series Top Ten Revealed by asking the experts to The favorite guitarist music industry of all time? "
BBC Scotland has asked its followers on Twitter to recruit the new director of Scotland's national football team.
Full-time Twitch player Chris Melberger asked his subscribers what device they were watching Twitch.
The content creator can then privately receive all the video responses to these questions, choose the ones that he wants to include in his finished show and drag those responses in the desired order. The creator can also respond to clips, or simply add another clip at the end of the video. Downloading prerecorded clips from services such as Dropbox or even your phone is also supported.
In addition, content creators can use Clipisode to overlay animations and professional-looking graphics at the top of the final video with answers and answers. It sounds more like something done with the help of a video editing team, not an app on your phone.
Because Clipisode invitations are web links, they do not require recipients to download an app.
"[People] does not want to download an app for a single video response," says Alvey. "But with that, people can answer." And, he adds, what makes Clipisode interesting from a technical point of view, is that users of web links can answer in any application in any way transparent for the end user.
"It's our biggest trick – doing this work in other people's apps, so there's no new social network to join and nothing to download," says he.
The application is free now, but the goal is to generate revenue by later selling subscription access as a result of creation where users can create animated overlays and components of brand that give the video a professional look.
In an online CMS, creators can create, test, and deploy animated themes that run over their videos.
The final video product can be shared on social media or downloaded in the form of a video file to be published on video sharing sites, on social networks or as a video podcast.
Clipisode has been in development for some time, says Alvey. Originally, the company brought together less than a million investors, including Mike Jones and Mark Cuban, for a different product that the founder described as a competitor of Patreon, before moving on to Clipisode . Investors financed the new product with less than half a million.
The application itself took a few years to complete, something that Alvey said has to do with the animation studio that he understands and the small team. (It's just him and the technical co-founder Max Schmeling.)
Clipisode is a free download for iOS and Android.
