Here is a little information about the new Online Delivery Service from Danceshowfilming.
What is it?
We feel that because so many people now no longer own a DVD player, and the fact that DVD is only standard definition anyway, that in this day and age we should be offering something much better. We tried Blu-ray years ago, but it never took off as we hoped and is very complicated and expensive to produce.
So after a lot of research we have found a professional video streaming platform called MediaZilla that works very similar to NetFlix, streaming full resolution HD video with a chapter for every act, and secure enough for child protection. It's FREE to use for our customers, you just create a free account and pay to have the dance show videos appear within. Play the full HD dance shows whenever you want, from ANYWHERE you want, even overseas!
Showing what your account looks like. Your dance School videos will appear in library.
MediaZilla will deliver your dance show on multiple devices in Full 1080P HD! Soon it will be able to deliver 4K video footage, and we film 99% of our dance shows in 4K! It'll be like watching a moving photograph on a large screen 4K TV!
When a student buys the online delivery version
Because there is no physical media such as a DVD disc and DVD case, we can offer our Online Delivery service cheaper than the DVD alternative! We will email you a "one time use" invitation email. In the email there is a button the customer needs to click to assign the Danceshow video to their free account. A page will open where you can either create, or sign into your free account on the Mediazilla video platform. The purchased video will automatically appear inside the account.
How dance schools collect the orders for the Online delivery service
Collect the orders in the same way as you do for DVD, except the price is a little cheaper for this delivery which we know may make it a little more complicated, and you will also need to collect email addresses from those that want it. The email is only used to send a unique download link where they can set up a free online account to watch their dance show video from.
How video content is viewed
Once a free account is made and the video file is inside, just click on the video file to open it up to the Main menu. Here you can either play the whole dance show, or choose the Chapter menu so you can go straight to a particular act.
Dance Shows all play back in full 1080P HD (and soon will come in 4K). You can turn HD off if you internet isn't to good. Your dance show can be viewed on PCs, Macs, Tablets, iPhones, Android Devices, Large Screen TVs and just about anything with an HTML5 web browser.
There is currently an App for Apple TV, which is a brilliant way to watch your dance show! Mediazilla will be releasing Apps for more devices in the near future including iPhone, Android, Roku and even an Samsung TV App! This will be by far the best and easiest way to watch the Dance show content in the future.
Large Screen TVs
At present, to watch full HD contents on a large screen TV, you can use Google Chromecast and similar devices to mirror the browser from your phone, tablet, laptop or other synced devices. Modern TVs have web browsers built in where you can log into your Mediazilla account and watch your dance show in full HD as normal! Or you can connect to your TV from your laptop via a HDMI cable.
As future technology gets better and better, website browsing around the home will get even easier and easier.

You can watch it anywhere, on any modern device with an HTML5 web browser, or with the Apps that will be appearing over the next year or so.

If you let someone else access your account, they can change your password or delete your contents or even delete the account itself!
