About the Project
numberF is a new startup from Washington DC which is disrupting how digital art is discovered, distributed and consumed.
Dadi Akhavan, the founder of numberF, is an avid art lover and he wants standard TVs to stream digital arts. He wants numberF to be the Netflix of the digital art world where art lovers can access digital arts using simple subscription service.
Video. Art. Evolved.
The world of video art remains obscure, indecipherable and too abstract for many. numberF is trying to break the mold. It is attempting to bring the art to the common mass.
While designing the whole user experience we kept things extremely simple. User starts with a preselected featured videos and then user can choose the channels of their liking.
Collect and Play
The concept is simple. Up-and-coming artists would upload their videos to the platform. Users would select the videos of their liking and would build a collection of videos.
All the videos from collection will play in a loop. In this way whether you have a formal party or you just want to sit back and enjoy arts.
Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming
No one likes when video freezes for buffering. That's why we chose "Adaptive bitrate streaming".
Developing the web application
For building the web application we used Ruby on Rails with PostgreSQL. For playing video we use HTML5 and for video encoding we use zencoder.
Building mobile applications using React Native
We built mobile application using React Native. Traditionally companies need to build and maintain two different apps. Objective-C/Swift based app for ios and Java based app for android.
