What kind of immersive experiences can I make with Stornaway?

Immersive media is about much more than just headsets. People no longer just need traditional linear videos and episodes – they expect continuous, immersive, personalized, interactive experiences that keep them watching to surprise and delight them.

On everything we watch, there’s a prompt to Watch Next – Swipe Up – You Might Also Like taking us away to find something better.

Until now, making interactive experiences to keep people engaged, connected and immersed has been hard and expensive – it’s needed teams of developers and expertise way outside the skillset of most professional creatives.

But now, tens of thousands of ordinary people all over the world are using Stornaway.io to make immersive interactive experiences for social media, marketing, training, ecommerce, education and learning, as well as for film, tv and game projects.

What's the difference between Stornaway and other tools?

Most tools let you put buttons on a video to embed on a website. But interactive immersive media is much more than just putting a button on a video. It’s a whole new way of thinking about modern content and audiences, by joining up media clips into viewer journeys and experiences – in video, 360 video, stills, audio, VR – for every platform.

From feature films and immersive theatre to demos and tours, from recruitment and training to challenges and behaviour change campaigns – the uses of interactive media stories are exploding every day!

Stornaway.io is a creative-focused production tool for all kinds of interactive video stories and journeys in every sector. We’re proud to be a part of a rich ecosystem of tools.

There are lots of platforms to choose from – and each has a slightly different offering. So for 2022, we’ve took a dive into 22 top options – along with information on their key features, who they’re best for and (where possible) pricing – and Interactive Video for beginners – a helpful unranked guide to 22 platforms and software tools for 2022.

We hope that whatever you’re trying to do, you use Stornaway.io – do let us know how you get on. Have a look at some of our examples and case studies via the links below to see what’s possible.
