Technology Breakthroughs: Wildmoka Auto ReZone Delivers on the Promise of Vertical Viewing Via Smartphone
A few days ago I received a call from a very knowledgeable person in the media technology field who excitedly said “Stop what you are doing I want you check out this company called Wildmoka. They have this amazing new technology that you will love. Well, being the technology nerd that I am, I did stop and I did check them out. After reading the press release twice I was hooked and wanted to know more. ProductionHUB caught up with Thomas Menguy the President and CTO at Wildmoka. He walked us through a very interesting process of seamlessly real time converting horizontal images to a vertical for viewing on smart phones via AI and the cloud. He also shared some of the research that was instrumental in the development of their new product Auto ReZone.
by featured blog contributor, Jeremy Pinckert As we enter the beginning of Summer Blockbuster Season, there looks to be a large amount of big-budget movies coming out in 2013 which are adapted from either books, comic books, or earlier TV series. Logic tells us not all of these films will be successful or worthy of your viewing time. With so many options you’ll either break the bank and gain 15 extra buttery-popcorn induced pounds, or you’ll simply be more critical in deciding which movies are worthy of your viewing time, money, and self-image. Read below for ideas as to why some of these adapted films will succeed, and others will fail.
Not that long ago, advertisers' TV media plans focused exclusively on GRPs, reach and frequency. Now, online has upended the model, enabling users and influencers to dramatically expand the reach of brand messages via social channels. The post-game online viewing of Super Bowl ads is a perfect example of this phenomenon. Now brands are creating their own content and are also recruiting influencers to create content and share their experiences with their networks to drive engagement. What does all this mean for advertisers and the broader advertising market?
With “disruption” being used as common vernacular to describe the television industry, how do content creators, advertisers and consumers move through this ever-changing environment? Is it streaming services driving micropayment models or gaming box aggregators letting us choose multiple services to consume? How will content consumption be impacted with a la carte behavior models driving the audience to new personalized viewing solutions? Who’s got the straight dope on this trend (if it even IS a trend yet)? Our panel does, and they share it with you in a “must see” session!
The buzz about eSports has been growing steadily for a few years now, but, even when you’re used to it and the opportunity it represents for the production sector, the numbers are still impressive. Take the Super Bowl as an example. The final total audience number for Super Bowl LIV is estimated by Nielsen to have been somewhere between 135 to 140 million once you factor in events such as parties and all the offline viewing. At Ncam, last year we worked on an eSports event in Cologne, Germany, that had a live audience of 25,000 and an online audience of 300 million unique viewers over its four-hour runtime, and all of those watched for an hour or longer.
Production monitors are in a period of flux. As we transition from the familiar REC709 HD signal standard into an uncertain future, the idea that there is one “standard” monitor in the broadcasting/high-end video/digital cinema production space is no longer true, if it ever was. However, there are a few models that we like, use and consistently recommend to our customers at AbelCine.

We’re accustomed to interactive tweets during live TV events and applications that expand on televised content, such as the Game of Thrones app for HBO. What we haven’t seen much of, but certainly will in the near future, is the proliferation of narrative second screen content. This means that while viewers are watching the main screen programming, a secondary device (such as a tablet or smartphone) will provide synchronized content that enhances the viewing experience. Samsung has been a pioneer in developing the applications and infrastructure necessary to make this type of programming a reality. In 2012, the company launched the Samsung Second Screen Storytellers challenge in conjunction with the New York Television Festival. Our team created a demo that won the challenge and we spent the better part of 2013 creating D-TEC, a television pilot that has second screen storytelling in its DNA. As the first team to build a narrative second screen TV series from the ground up, we’re happy to share what we’ve learned.
St. Thomas Church embraces Panasonic livestreaming technology to bring community and worship together
Working to expand its online offerings beyond audio webcast, Saint Thomas Church in New York, NY began filming video recordings of its services with a one-man video team for its extensive religious community. The original webcast production process ended up being a laborious and time-intensive endeavor, taking up to 15 hours to produce the broadcast of each service. It included setting up cinema cameras, shooting the services, adding b-roll, editing footage and sound, and then uploading for online viewing. As such, the Church wanted to find a more efficient remote production solution. Additionally, the pandemic further underscored the opportunity to deliver online content to its congregants when the Church was required to limit in-person visits in accordance to social distancing measures.
Among us, our titles include cinematographer, director, writer, and producer. We are all storytellers and business owners in the Atlanta area. While we think it’s painful that being of the female species makes us unique in the industry, it most certainly does. UCLA’s "The Hollywood Diversity Report" reports that only 7% of films are directed by women, making us a rare breed indeed. While we look forward to the day where viewing everything through the lady lens won’t be necessary, we know that for now, it presents a unique perspective. So we’re going to lean in to that and share from our experience.
The internet has revolutionized every facet of the modern business world. The latest industry to drastically shift its structure and undergo major enhancements is the television delivery. Where consumers would once watch a few episodes of TV at a prescribed time, they now expect content everywhere at any time - via smart TV’s, computers, tablets and smartphones.
