The thumbnail is history, let’s use a filmstrip instead.

June 15, 2016

Media Distillery keeps innovating! In cooperation with TNO, a Dutch organisation for Applied Scientific Research, we developed an alternative for the thumbnail. It is always difficult to determine if a whole video is worth your time or not. This is predominantly caused by the defective thumbnail, in which a video clip is  summarized in only one image. Our alternative is the interactive filmstrip; a series of images, selected based on image recognition algorithms that show what the whole video is about. Read more about the filmstrip in this blogpost and test it by using our ‘NOS journaal’ demo. (results are optimized for tablet and mobile). We look forward to your feedback!
