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.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

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 smart...
