Zync - the design of sychronized video sharing

3,513

Published on

In this sketch, we present a design research approach which led to the development of Zync, a synchronized video player that provides a social viewing experience for online videos. This approach utilizes an iterative design process, focuses on research pragmatics over semantics, and examines the landscape of existing tools and technologies to identify the best venue for deployment.

In lieu of creating an entirely new collaboration tool, we chose to build Zync as a plug-in module for a popular instant messaging (IM) client to help foster conversations where they normally occur. Zync augments the IM experience by enabling the inclusion of online videos within these conversations.

Based on Zync usage data, we identified three classes of people who share videos via IM, obtained insight into what people want to watch, and created a framework to understand how people behave and hold conversations in synchronicity with temporal media.

Sometimes you should really talk to people… <ul><li>“ Let me start by saying, i absolutely love Zync, currently myself and my wife are about 2000 miles apart but we love to watch movies together and it allows us to talk and watch together and its the closest thing we have to actually being together….Thanks again we love zync its really made being apart more bearable!” </li></ul><ul><li>“ I have been using it on a daily basis since I first discovered it 4 months ago.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Awesome! Being able to watch the same video at the same time, with the friend who is on the other side of the globe? With a simple plug-in? You can't beat that. Great , great, great! ” </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Yiming Liu, David A. Shamma, Peter Shafton, Jeannie Yang </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
