New JumpView Movie Format Debuts with Jesse McCartney Mystery; Innovative Campus Life Feature Delivers New Way to Experience a Movie

"Me-centric," Snackable Non-Linear Viewing Approach Provides Action, Surprises, Social Engagement for Multi-Platform, Second Screen Viewing

NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- They say that college is the time to discover who you are -- but what if you aren't who you thought you were? And what if you aren't where you thought you were?  That's the premise behind Campus Life, a full-length feature film which is the first JumpView movie available immediately at www.jumpview.com.  Starring teen sensation Jesse McCartney, the film follows scared and confused students who are targets running out of time. Viewers unearth the mystery that is Campus Life through the eyes of five characters – as each unravels unusual events on a college campus, they find that "the Truth doesn't always set you free."

The innovative JumpView format approaches storytelling in a new way, offering a "me-centric," snackable viewing experience for mobile devices, smart TVs, Macs and PCs. Not a theatrical experience and not a webisode, JumpView lets viewers watch individual character storylines independently and out of sequence according to personal preference. With the ability to jump from device to device without losing your place, JumpView movies provide a second screen experience that can be viewed anywhere and at any time for audiences who are connected 24/7/365.

"The JumpView format reimagines movies for audiences today, taking advantage of mobile, the cloud and TV anywhere to deliver everything the Internet can offer," said Michael Simon, co-owner, JumpView Entertainment. "JumpView allows viewers to focus precisely on what they want, following timelines and characters in or out of sequence to watch wherever or whenever, consuming content when they feel like it."

Created by Simon and Kenneth Waddell, the JumpView format is poised to transform the film experience, delivering individual story experiences. Each JumpView movie is a theatrical length feature that lets viewers explore characters and piece together the plot in whatever manner they choose depending on timeline selections – there's a different story experience each time based which characters they follow. Major characters have their own timeline, sharing the story from their unique P.O.V.  

Watching a JumpView movie is easy and fun: a central Start Film sets the stage for individual timeline exploration and finishes with an End Film that can only be unlocked upon viewing two characters' complete timelines. The intuitive JumpView player gives viewers the freedom to go forward or backward in the story with a simple click, and an easy-to-use visual guide offers a full map of all character storylines before and after the Start Film. Viewers can seamlessly navigate the story timeline, seeing viewed and unviewed clips, character intersections and even watching the same scene from two different viewpoints if the dots line up.

Social by design, JumpView movies are deeply integrated through Facebook to connect friends and fans with the story, allowing for collaboration and fun as viewers explore and experience the twists and turns in Campus Life.

Campus Life, co-written by Simon and Waddell, is the first feature in what the creators see as an ongoing series of titles for the revolutionary platform.  Co-directed by Waddell, the two hour Campus Life film also features Conor Leslie, Hannah Hodson, Alice Kremelberg, Ritesh Rajan and Jack Falahee.  The JumpView format can also be used by studios and production houses to reintroduce feature and TV libraries to new audiences.

JumpView Start Films and two character episodes are always free to view at www.jumpview.com. Campus Life is priced at $4.99, and viewers have three days to watch the movie as many times as they choose.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general. Although few people are familiar with Microservers today, their impact will be felt very soon. This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
