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. See our Customers and Examples pages to find out more.

Stornaway.io is so easy and powerful that it’s used by people who have never even made a video before, and also by the world’s most experienced interactive filmmakers making huge projects for game consoles and cinemas.

The one thing they have in common is that they all tell us how much they love using Stornaway!

Where can I publish what I create in Stornaway.io?

Stornaway.io has unrivalled flexibility and openness, so you can publish to Stornaway’s amazing player, to Websites and Social Media, to LMS learning platforms, to YouTube Interactive and to mobile apps, desktop apps, TV platforms, consoles and VR via our no-code Unity plugin.

The Web and Social Media
For a  fully-featured and custom-designed experience, just click Publish to embed your Stornaway projects on your own site and share on social media using our powerful Stornaway player and streaming platform.

LMS (Learning Management Systems) 
Stornaway.io projects can be embedded on LMS pages, and thus included in the SCORM packages that LMS systems and eLearning authoring tools use to exchange data and track learners’ outcomes. Our API can be used with xAPI (TinCan) to track what learners are doing and talk to your LRS (Learning Record Store). More details are in our Help section, and please get in touch if you’d like to know more.

YouTube
We have created the first game engine for YouTube. Craft and test your interactive video stories in Stornaway.io and publish them direct to YouTube with interactive links, to reach their huge global audience of 2 billion monthly users.

Compatible VOD platforms
Stornaway.io was designed as a universal authoring tool, and we’re working towards integrations with major VOD platforms. If you’re a producer looking to publish to a 3rd party platform, we can solve your storytelling and delivery problems – contact us for more details.

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 2023, we’ve took a dive into 23 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 23 platforms and software tools for 2023.

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.
