Renderobot

Overview

In an attempt to catch an early spot in the HTML5 hosting market, this system is designed to take multiple video formats and convert into HTML5-friendly formats, provide a clean, ad-free player and syndicate video content to popular video hosting services like YouTube and Vimeo.

The system is currently under development and is in early stages of design and testing. Additional market research from professional video production community sites has brought in several new ideas for features (such as live video presentation) that were not considered with initial project design and the change in structure has caused minor setbacks in project timeline.
