How does Beyond Seen Screen work?
Here is a quick diagram that explains this simple process.

The platform recognizes the video and provides the ElementsInformation, entertainment, commercials, etc. the content owner linked to it. These ElementsInformation, entertainment, commercials, etc. are presented to the viewer on their smartphone app.
Promo example: cooking show
You are a chef and you have a cooking show. It spans several seasons and in each episode you do three recipes. All the recipes for dishes that you prepare in the show are on your website. You have partnered with some grocery stores in some regions of the world and you can provide direct shopping lists in those stores for groceries required to prepare that exact dish. You have a contract with a cookware company whose products you promote. You also wrote a book that you are selling. And you have restaurants in several cities around the world that you want to promote.
With Beyond Seen Screen, you can link all of this information together and provide it as ElementsInformation, entertainment, commercials, etc. on all your cooking show episodes. You can provide direct links to exact recipes that are being displayed at the time the viewer scans the video. You can provide links to web shops for the cookware you promote and use in your cooking show. Viewers would also enjoy the bloopers made during recording the shows. Luckily, you uploaded those bloopers on your website and you can now provide a link to the exact bloopers that occurred during that episode. If a video is scanned in a segment between the two recipes, you can provide some general information about yourself and your brands. Maybe also a link to your new book that was just released. You can leverage geolocation feature of the platform and provide the link to make an online reservation for a table at your nearest restaurant.
For end viewers, all it takes to get to these ElementsInformation, entertainment, commercials, etc. is to start the BSS app on their mobile device and use it to scan the episode of your show they are watching. And since they scanned the video, they are interested in what you have to offer.
