Introducing JW Labs: Our Hub For Video Innovation

Blog 1 min read | Jun 19, 2014 | JW Player


JW Player pioneered internet video as the world’s first open source video player. Today, we’re innovating for the future with technical and business thought leadership. We are excited to announce the launch of JW Labs, which will house JW Player’s technical ideas, original research, and future roadmap. Take a tour of JW Labs and become a part of the JW community!

JW Labs Content

The initial launch of JW Labs consists of three sections: research, experiments, and roadmap:

In Research, you will find our HTML5 industry report, original white papers, and videos from thought leaders. Topics will cover both the technical and business sides of the online video industry.

In Experiments, we have created a variety of demos using either the JW Player or JW Platform APIs. Source codes are available, so you can add these experiments to your own JW video player. Check out one of our featured demos on timeline interaction:

In Roadmaps, you can vote and comment on the projects in our roadmap. We want your input so don’t be shy!

This is Just the Beginning

Although Labs has a wealth of content today, expect more to come! We already have some great content in the pipeline, and will be making regular updates and additions to Labs soon.

As always, we would love to get your feedback. If you have suggestions or would like to participate in an experiment or whitepaper, please let us know.
