What is Interactive Video?
Imagine a video where instead of passive viewers dropping off after 20 seconds, the viewer can control and personalize their path through the video, accessing the content they care about most, taking multiple calls to action. Interactive video makes this possible. With viewer engagement and interaction also comes detailed analytics offering deep data insights that are simply not possible with traditional linear video.
