Let the audience decide, not us. We are open to any content - feature film, TV, documentary, short, culture, children… any format, any genre, any language (subject to simple minimum requirements). Some streaming services might decline your title - but we don't.
No exclusive contract. You are free to work with other distributors in parallel. No lock-in. No minimum terms. Cancel anytime. Exclude territories and streaming services à la carte.
Kinonation turns digital distribution into a fully-automated all-digital workflow with a modern, easy to use, cloud-based web app. No shipping drives, no DVD screeners, no one sitting in a room full of equipment encoding each film manually. Upload unlimited size asset files. Comfortably resume after interruptions. We then author into all different streaming service formats.
Our proprietary ranking system - built with a Harvard PhD statistician and filmmaker - ranks any title on a 1-100 scale of probable video streaming success, based on 100+ empirical data points including talent ranking, festival & social media, trailer views etc. This helps streaming services select the most promising films - and the content creator understand how to improve their film's chance to be profitable.
The technology and the zero up-front cost enables us to scale rapidly. We can ingest hundreds of titles simultaneously, from anywhere on the planet, into a huge catalog. And it allows us global and multi-language reach – to deliver titles to all streaming services worldwide, into growing markets, and in any language.
Transparent, automated online reporting. See every stream & sale and when it happened. Consolidated accounting from stores worldwide.
Top-quality cloud transcoding, consistent authoring, and a 100+ step quality control checklist. We're ready for 4k and beyond.
With our self-service marketing tools, checklists, tutorials, subtitling resources etc, motivated content owners can reach their title's affinity group globally.
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 streaming services, 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 service-specific delivery bundles.
Your title - including metadata, trailer & images - is automatically delivered to the chosen streaming services. 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 streaming services, and create convenient online reporting for you. The streaming service pay us, we keep a 20% share, you get 80%. No other charges.
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 streaming services 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.
Video streaming is an exploding market. As new streaming services appear, we re-deliver your whole catalog automatically at no additional cost.
Simply carve out territories already sold. Deselect streaming services you're already in or simply don't want. You can also set different release dates for transactional, ad-based and subscription based business models.
Choose between simple revenue sharing or a low one-time service fee.
