We leave judging creative quality to you & the audience. We can't guarantee all outlets will take your title - but we will (subject to simple minimum requirements).

Transparent online reporting. Consolidated accounting. Withdraw your revenue anytime.
We do hi-end cloud transcoding and follow a 100+ step quality control checklist. We're ready for 4k and beyond. We just love good looking stuff.
Upload your titles and trailers using our unique Upload Manager. Add artwork and enter metadata. Easily resume uploads with unlimited file sizes, and parallel uploads from several locations – making the upload fly!
Your video assets are transcoded into many formats as required by our digital outlets, for example iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and many more.
Our system also prepares the artwork and "metadata" files which describe your title. Then we package everything into outlet-specific delivery bundles.
Your title - including metadata, trailer & images - is automatically delivered to the chosen VOD outlets. They review the package and make their selection.
Consumers rent, buy or stream your film to their HDTVs, home theater systems, game consoles, Blu-Ray players, streaming players, computers, phones and tablets.
We consolidate accounting from all outlets, and create convenient online reporting for you. The outlets pay us, we keep our 20% share, and you can withdraw your revenue anytime.
Producers, sales agents, distributors, mini-majors, studios: you own or control high profile titles or a large scale catalog, whether it's 5 or 5000.
Use our cloud service to push your content to outlets worldwide.
We release your catalog in all major territories and digital stores. Our cloud technology does all the complicated technical work. Low cost, consolidated accounting, short lead times. We are scalable to infinite catalog sizes.
VOD is an exploding market. As new outlets appear, we re-deliver your whole catalog automatically at no additional cost.
Simply carve out territories already sold. Deselect VOD outlets you don't want. You can also set different release dates for transactional, ad-based and subscription based VOD.
Choose between simple revenue sharing or a low one-time service fee.
Kinonation is based in Santa Monica, CA. We're committed to give any content owner easy access to worldwide VOD in any format, language and territory.
