Any transaction related to these video files would be controlled through the smart contracts. The company had fruitfully connected the blockchain to a video player, which has made it easy to demonstrate the prototype.

During the Webinar, a demonstration would be given on virtual video playing on a blockchain-aware player. The webinar would also cover the steps taken by the company to make the video blockchain possible for the first time. It would also highlight the benefits of blockchain and would demonstrate the cases such as anti-piracy, auditability, hyper ledger payment methods as well as the methods of revenue generation.
