We all know Tom Hanks is huge on the big screen, but now, he’s also innovating on the small screens. He’s spearheading a new “interactive web series” called ELECTRIC CITY. It’s positioned to be this groundbreaking interactive entertainment where people can experience online non-linear storytelling guided by a 3D map, play mobile interactive games, read digital comic books and explore exclusive sneak peeks and behind-the-scene content. Now, all these interactive elements in and of themselves have been around for a while and may not be groundbreaking per se, but by the sound of it, it’s the culmination of these elements into one cohesive interactive entertainment experience that makes it super cool.
Now, for those creative ones who are thinking about producing their very own interactive web series with interactive videos, mobile social games, and other web apps, the Adobe Media Server or Wowza Media Server may just be the right solution. These powerful and versatile media server software allow for interactive streaming to all popular media devices such as iPads and iPhones, Android phones and tablets, Windows Mobile devices, video game consoles, and set-top boxes. In addition, application development platforms like UnionCloud.io offer real-time multiuser web application development environments that are cost-effective and hassle-free, so that you can easily and quickly develop and deploy your apps which are often the central elements in interactive web series. And with a carefully load-balanced and instantly scalable cloud server network as a backbone, your interactive web series project will be well on its way to success.
With the right solutions, interactive web series don’t have to be as complicated as they sound. Technology is out there, so all you have to do is just be creative and reach out to the right people who can help you unlock the power of interactive streaming to bring your visions to life. As we like to say around here, “Dare to stream!”
