Apr 2016 – Jun 2016


Mindway Media were developing a VoD platform for niche markets, allowing content creators to upload and manage video assets, and deliver them to custom-built mobile apps. I was engaged on a freelance basis to create the administration backend for the system, handling both (video) data and metadata.

I successfully delivered a management system which allowed content creators to load their content into the system for delivery to end users. This content was able to be viewed by native iOS app, and additional features such as “most popular” and “promoted content” lists were provided to help end users discover new and interesting content.
