Non linear Video 

Non-linear Video creates an interactive video experience. Objects are clickable and are enabling your audience to explore, shop, learn and play while they watch video. Interactive and time independent navigation opens new ways to enrich video content. 

The non-linear-video technology is commercially available via Fraunhofer FOKUS spinoff company BitTubes GmbH.

Non-linear Video is your one-stop shop for interactive content. Our technology opens up new ways of interaction between the content and your target audience. Clickable objects turn the raw video content into an interactive video surface. The viewer decides what kind of information and level of detail he wants to receive in addition to the video. Therefore non-linear Video supports a variety of supplemental content as video, audio, images, text, documents up to seamless integration of web contents and social media. Video content, enriched with such kind of features, increases viewer retention, engages and entertain viewers and allows for advanced storylines and character development.
