Share Article

Atlanta based startup Cinamaker collaborates with Agora.io to create the “Agora Cinamaker Studio,” a custom integration of Cinamaker’s multi-camera HD studio and Agora’s global real-time network.

Cinamaker founder and CEO Benjamin Nowak has traveled to Beijing for this year’s Real-Time Web Solutions Conference (RTC). At the conference, Nowak lectured on the subject of “Next-Generation Micro Channel Video Production.” More importantly, perhaps, Nowak announced Cinamaker’s partnership with Agora.io, a leader in global real-time cloud-based communication headquartered in China.

The Agora Cinamaker Studio is “the mobile creator’s studio.” Using just a tablet and up to six synchronized smartphones or other cameras, the Agora Cinamaker Studio allows creators to livestream and record multi-angle videos with real-time switching, a newsroom style graphics engine, and audio-mixing along with many other features. Cinamaker has one U.S. patent and its early proof-of-concept app won an award at the SXSW “ReleaseIt” competition in 2016. The company has already licensed its mobile based platform to Panasonic’s broadcast camera division.

Today, Agora.io and Cinamaker have officially begun their partnership. The crowd at RTC was the first to hear Nowak’s announcement of the collaboration as well as the first to see a live demonstration of the new “Agora Cinamaker Studio.” The initial integrated product features include: the ability to sync up to six local or remote cameras including both Cinamaker capture assistants and Agora remote capture assistants; Simultaneous streaming to Agora.io plus additional RTMP destinations; Switching, audio mixing, and graphics engine; And the ability to receive an audience stream simultaneously with the camera stream preview on any Agora assistant devices.

With this mobile, app-based production studio, creators can expect professional studio production capabilities and advanced production workflows that enable faster content creation with a greater potential for creator and audience interaction.

Cinamaker’s SVP and head of Corporate Development, Gary Baker, commented "We are excited to be working with Agora.io to blend Cinamaker's native-mobile video tools into Agora's platform, which is destined to enhance their user's video production, distribution and best of all audience engagement. We are thrilled to be partnering with Tony Wang and the Agora.io team and one of the world's largest real-time video platforms."
