Cloud Video Services: Create the Ultimate Movie Library


Technology and innovation have always been a driving force behind the film industry, from the introduction of sound to black and white pictures to the integration of 3D special effects in movies. The cloud is one of the newest innovations to revolutionize the modern film industry, with services such as Ultraviolet and Disney Movies Anywhere allowing you to watch content whenever and wherever you want.

Cloud storage is impacting how movies are made by providing vast amounts of affordable computing power that speeds up and improves processes such as 3D rendering. This not only helps Hollywood giants such as Disney and Paramount to create more realistic special effects but also allows smaller movie makers to compete. The cloud can handle massive file sizes that digital filmmaking entails, allowing filmmakers to store and manipulate vast amounts of raw footage without having to spend a fortune on computing power.

While the cloud has been an important driving factor in how movies are produced, it’s also been changing how the public consumes visual media. Using cloud-based services, you can access your favorite movies and TV shows anytime, anywhere. You can also build and store a media library that’s as big as you like without having to worry about shelf space. Check out some of our favorite cloud video services that allow you to turn your TV, laptop, or even mobile phone into your own home theater.
