We want someone who can build a [url removed, login to view] style studio site for our own internet TV channel. You can also check: ustreamtv, justintv, liveuniverse, blogtv.
The similarities, differences and/or additions to these sites are the following:
1- We want to be able to upload and set up a play list and have it run on autopilot.
2- We want to be able to insert LIVE events on the playlist or to insert a complete LIVE feed into the site. (Multiple LIVE feeds)
3- User will be able to upload files containing Channel ID (BUG) and/or Lower 1/3 credit bar and embedded into their video signal. We would like to have more FX and animation futures for the user to use on the STUDIO-Master Control-Editing Room side of the software. Ei: like youtube ID runs on top of every video played in their site.
4- Closed Caption and subtitling capability. We would like to have subtitles and/or closed captions running on top of the video. The subtitles or captions will run from a text file uploaded to the site by the members or provided by us. In other words: a person who is watching the signal after the channel runs on air, will be able to choose their personal preference from the available subtitles or caption files and watch the signal with closed captions or subtitles over the video picture as with a DVD. The viewers control the language option. The subtitles or caption file extension and format can be discussed with us.
5- Audio capabilities: We would like to have the SAP (Second Audio Program) option for viewers to select.
6- We only want to be able to pull videos off from our own Video Share Community site. But, we could consider for the future to provide access to other db video share communities.
7- We will have different types of membership. Free and paid memberships, each with different benefits and options.
8- We want to have a FRIENDLIER edit capability for the playlist. The user needs to see the whole playlist on the screen in a timeline such us any video editor. Small thumbnails will be helpful to achieve this.
9- We need to have a type of (e-bay) module inside of our site where the user can buy, sell, license or trade their video productions. Users will be able to license their original video, music and graphics content to different networks created by users using a module of the site where they will post their production for licensing, trade or sale. When any user selects one of these elements to be use on one of the original created networks, the system will automatically detect that the element is in use and will credit the element owner's account with a payment, points or both.. (To be determined by site administrator)
10- Every member will have the chance to create an account and deposit funds to be used for original content licensing. There are several photo share sites that use something similar to this. You post a photo and when people use it you automatically get money, points or both credited to your account. The main difference here will be using a tool that automatically detects when the content is airing on any of the networks from the site and as many times during the day, week, month, etc. The administrator of the site needs to have the control of this process selecting the way the system will be crediting the user accounts: i.e. the user will get paid as many times as the content airs, the user will receive just a one time payment without receiving any payment per use that the contents airs. This scroll down option needs to come with an ‘ADD' feature for the administrator to add more options.
11- The video player can be embedded within any other sites.
12- We need the user to be able to create a profile, upload wallpapers, pictures, videos, and music files. They will be able to create their personal “touch” to their space like myspace does.
13- We will create communities for projects where the user or the administrator can propose a project and people will be able to participate in any way they want. i.e a user wants to create a video about different cultures so he will post the project and some other member can be invited to participate or members can search for open projects. User will choose from different options the best way to be reached. Ei: txt message to a Mobil device, email, personal message or a combination of them.
14- This is a multilingual site.
15- A forum area needs to be created.
16- NDA and a contract need to be signed. References and samples need to be provided in advance or as per request by us.
17- We are not going to be awarding the project based only on price but quality, references and knowledge.
18- We will need a full description of what programming language you will use to create the site. This will run under Linux.
19- PAYMENT: We will deposit 25% of the job in escrow using the escrow account system provided on this site or any other escrow site available selected by us and approved by contractor at the sign of the contract and NDA is signed and returned to us in original. Another 10% after receiving the media player with the capability to run video, digital subtitles in multiple languages and SAP as described on number 25. The Remaining balance will be paid after the final approved project is delivered, installed, approved and in FULL operation in our server.
20- COMMUNICATIONS: You need to be available during EDT – United States for support and any updates. We will need to have direct contact using: MSN – Google Talk, Phone Number, Email and Skype.
21- Final script installation is required in our server and we will need access to your server to see the developing progress online on a daily basic.
22- We will own the entire original design programming codes; the copyrights and trademarks of the site. Your work will be considered as a work for hire.
23- MAXIMUM TIME FRAME: The entire site in full operation within but not exceeding 45 Days. A production schedule needs to be provided to us with specific deliverable time lines.
24- Graphic Design will be done on your end but supervised by our Art Director. We will provide the logos and some graphic concepts but full responsibility for assembly and design remains on your side. We have at least 24 hours to approve your designs.
25- We will give a minimum bonus of US$ 1,000.00 to any company that will be able to have the site in full operation in 30 days and have delivery within a week after the project is confirmed and accepted along with a video player module that will be installed on our temporary demo site with the capability to run videos, digital subtitles in multiple languages and SAP. You will provide support until the bugs are fixed. Software BUGS that are not affecting the operation of the site in full capacity will not be taken into consideration for the bonus. We are a vey fair and reasonable professional company and ask to please be the same with us. We will always retain the first right of refusal and will have the final decision. Feel free to ask for more information.
