Have you ever found yourself on a ridiculous search for that top or accessory you just saw on a tv show or in that movie you just watched, and couldn’t find it? Frustrated you ask yourself “what’s the point of product placement if you can’t easily buy it?”

Screenist gives us all the long awaited answer to this question. Functioning like a virtual “Buy this product now” button on the video you’re watching, it adds a vivid marketplace to any screen.

It is the missing link between media and e-commerce.
How does it work you say?
Easy, with just a tap of a button you can learn more about the product and even order it online, right then and there!

The Screenist application offers you products of interest either within your preferred online video content or even by simply holding your phone in front of an offline screen. YES, ANY SCREEN.

You then see the list of relevant products in real-time. You get product information at the push of a button, while purchasing takes an extra push. Then, you’re redirected to the product’s online store.

It’s so simple. No need to even stop or leave the video.

But Screenist is not simply an application. It is also an algorithm and a related database that can identify and match scenes in media content with products in that exact scene. It is able to recognize media and offer related products anytime, anywhere, on any device, without needing any additional information or any other data.

The Screenist algorithm and database are programmed into the blockchain providing access for virtually anyone on the planet. It uses smart contracts to make sure that any user from the biggest brands to any private person can use, contribute to and benefit from it in a so far unprecedentedly efficient way.

Screenist – made possible by blockchain technology – is a completely new approach of how people can buy and sell using media content.
