Cinamaker Makes Remote Guests and Cameras a Breeze via the Zoom Meeting SDK

Cinamaker’s multi-camera video recording, editing, and live streaming app teams up with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. to expand its remote production capabilities.

Over the last two years, few have become strangers to a work-from-home, virtual meeting lifestyle. Some would describe this as the “Zoom Era of Remote Work” where we operate our businesses, jobs, and personal connections through the lens of a camera across various computers and devices.

Today, Cinamaker is excited to announce its direct integration with Zoom’s Meeting SDK that enables Cinamaker Director Studio customers the ability to include Remote Guests and Remote Cameras from anywhere in the world into their Cinamaker-produced live streams, live meetings, and recorded sessions.

Put simply, through Cinamaker’s integration with Zoom’s leading video communications platform,  Cinamaker creators can select and pull individual Zoom meeting participants into their live Cinamaker productions as featured interview guests, presenters, and remote talent, and thereby enhance the quality of their video production, live streams, virtual meetings, presentations, webinars, events, and more. 

“We’re excited that Cinamaker has chosen to use our Meetings SDK to extend their live video production offering to include remote guests,” said Zoom’s Chief Technology Officer, Brendan Ittelson. “Including remote guests will help event hosts create high-quality live events without geography acting as a barrier.”  

Since 2017, Cinamaker has been dedicated to empowering emerging video creators, live streamers, professionals, entrepreneurs, and the like with tools for multi-camera live video streaming, recording, and editing using their Mac or iPad. Without any prior multi-camera video experience, Cinamaker Director Studio users can tell their stories using up to eight (8) iPhone, and digital camera angles, mix audio, include media assets, visual effects, and more.

Now, thanks to Zoom’s Meeting SDK, Cinamaker users can just as simply include remote guests and remote cameras directly into their live shows and events, live streams, presentations, and recordings, as well as send their live Cinamaker production to Zoom Meetings, Zoom Events, and Zoom Webinars.

“We are extremely excited to support emerging creators and remote workers all over the globe with a solution for creating engaging Zoom sessions, live streams, and video recordings that leave their viewers saying ‘wow’”, says Cinamaker CEO, Benjamin Nowak.

As cameras continue to be a necessity for individuals, companies, and institutions to effectively communicate and interact worldwide, Cinamaker with Zoom makes it easier than ever to create and tell stories using multiple angles and media, from multiple locations, and with multiple participants, wherever they may be.

Cinamaker 2.18 Release Notes

With Director Studio version 2.18, Cinamaker releases enhancements to the Remote Guest feature by Pre-Scheduling invited Guests. Users can create Cinamaker Director Studio accounts from within the Zoom App Marketplace, enhancements to Cinamaker Virtual Webcam Driver 2.0, and more.

With this release, you will: 

  • Access Pre-scheduled Zoom Sessions Inside Cinamaker Director Studio
  • Login to Cinamaker with Zoom via oAuth
  • Enhancements to the Cinamaker Virtual Webcam Driver 2.0 (macOS only)
  • Plus: Bug fixes, and stability improvements

Access Pre-scheduled Zoom Sessions From Within Cinamaker

Often times you will want to schedule a Cinamaker Remote Guest session and invite one or more attendees with plenty of advance notice.

Now you can access pre-scheduled Cinamaker Remote Guest sessions created with Zoom and invite guests well ahead of the live Remote Guest sessions.

Pre-scheduled Zoom Sessions Inside Cinamaker Director Studio

To access pre-scheduled Cinamaker Remote Guest sessions, simply create a Zoom meeting through your preferred Zoom interface as you typically would. Then on the day of the meeting, you will simply start your Cinamaker Director Studio session and navigate to the Camera Browser to begin a Remote Guest session. 

In order to activate your Zoom Session inside Cinamaker, you must first log in to the same Zoom account as you use to schedule the meeting in advance.

Once logged into Zoom successfully through Cinamaker, rather than selecting “Start Meeting” you will instead select “Scheduled Meetings” (see above) where you will find all Zoom meetings that you previously scheduled. Select the appropriate meeting and as soon as your invited Remote Guest(s) log in they will appear in your Camera Browser. At this point, you will both be able to open the Zoom session, aka “The Green Room” where you will pre-meet and converse from within a Zoom Meeting before pulling your Guest(s) into your live Cinamaker Session.

Additionally, new users can create a Cinamaker account directly from the Zoom App Marketplace using Zoom.

In the release of Cinamaker version 2.18, we have added Zoom oAuth as an optional way to authenticate and authorize users to make requests between Cinamaker and Zoom. With Zoom oAuth, you will be able to:

  • Register for a new Cinamaker Director Studio account via Zoom App Marketplace
