As the video-on-demand industry (VOD) inevitably gains ground with Netflix ascendant, companies like Shoal Games and Wonderfilm are also aspiring to compete in the immensely lucrative sector.
Today, Shoal Games Limited, a mobile software developer and operator of games platform, Rooplay, announced that they are collaborating with Wonderfilm.
The partnership agreement between the publisher and the episodic TV and top-quality feature movies producer targets the development of VOD and over-the-top (OTT) platforms worldwide.
Moreover, Shoal Games and Wonderfilm agreed to help each other on research and distribution of OTT content just like what mainstream streaming service, Netflix, is engaged with.
Kirk Shaw, the chief executive of Wonderfilm, expressed his delight and hopeful expectations pertinent to the newly sealed alliance.
He remarked that the expertise of Shoal Games in the OTT sector is a welcome development for Wonderfilm’s agenda of entering the subscription VOD (SVOD) industry.
Shaw revealed that the partnership would ultimately employ “embedded blockchain technology.” He explained that the sophisticated design expertise of Shoal Games and Wonderfilm are increasingly improving SVOD technology.
The Wonderfilm executive is optimistic that the budding multi-layered interactive technology that stemmed from passive viewing encounters will give application users better-personalized experiences.
Shaw is also confident that the joint creation of TV series and films will be made possible by the innovative union of his firm and the artistic talents of Rooplay’s owner.
On behalf of Shoal Games, its head, Jason Williams said that widespread distribution and fortified collaborators are necessary to thrive in the SVOD sector. He lauded Wonderfilm for leading in the creation of superb-quality cinematic videos.
Williams noted that they are looking forward to working together as they both seek opportunities to co-promote their products and become recognized in the international SVOD terrain.
Shoal Games and Wonderfilm intend to start comprehensive research right away. They plan to determine the technique that will help them realize their distribution and product targets in the most cost-effective manner.
