So much new stuff that this post’s headline wraps to a second line! As we prepare for NAB, we’re releasing a slew of features across multiple modules. And, we have some even newer stuff in development which we can show at the event. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange getting together with us. What’s available now, and demonstrated below, includes:
- Clear & present instructions on basics of using Annotative Player to help new users get started
- Refined layout when adding comments in Player making advanced features more discreet and basic features more obvious
- Toggle to switch video play between higher quality and better bandwidth efficiency versions including automatic prompting when bandwidth challenges are encountered
- Schedule reminder emails to be sent in advance of Tasks being due
- Copy entire scenes of Collaborative Script including any uploaded media within a project or across projects (which can be especially useful to achieve templates on episodic content that tends to follow the same pattern)

In addition to implementing script pagination, highlighted in our prior blog post, last week’s video.Market7 release included completion of the foundational features of our new Annotative Player.
All uploaded videos now dynamically provision, meaning that any moment of a video is immediately available by dragging playhead, even if a video is especially long and high bit-rate — streaming dynamically initiates from current playhead location, and does not wait for download to catch up to that point from the start.
We have also recently completed our trio of screen sizing options — compact or full-screen, or the in-between full-browser view that combines benefits of both by providing a large & high-quality view of video while also availing full functionality for perusing and creating comments.
This is a very useful feature set for people who work with feature and programmatic content, and desire ability to get to review and commenting of any point of that content, while seeing it at a quality level consistent with ultimate experience viewers will have.
Here are demonstrations:
