CU Laterz - Video Sharing iOS and Android Social Network

About the project

CU Laterz is a unique video-sharing social network, designed as a native mobile application for both iOS and Android platforms. The app allows users to record videos and schedule their sending to loved ones or friends at a future date, bridging the gap between time and communication. A significant feature of this project is the integration of AWS Elemental MediaConvert, a complex video transcoding system that ensures optimal video playback on networks with varying bandwidths.


Our Approach

At HyperSense, we follow a comprehensive development process that ensures the successful transformation of an idea into a market-ready product. For the CU Laterz project, we tailored our approach to create an innovative and user-friendly app:

  1. Idea to Technology: We initiated the project with Discovery Workshops, collaborating with the client to explore their vision and requirements. Through Product Strategy & Research, we identified market needs and opportunities, followed by the creation of Wireframes to outline the app's user interface and features.
  2. Technology to Project Plan: Our talented designers conducted a Design Sprint to rapidly iterate and refine the app's user experience. Our Tech Advisory provided guidance on the most suitable technologies, platforms, and AWS Elemental MediaConvert integration while conducting a thorough Dependency Evaluation to assess any external factors that could impact the project.
  3. Project Plan to Implementation: Employing an agile approach, our team executed Development Sprints to build the app efficiently, ensuring adaptability and timely delivery. We seamlessly integrated CU Laterz with AWS Elemental MediaConvert and other relevant third-party services. Rigorous Quality Assurance tests were conducted to guarantee optimal performance and user satisfaction, followed by Load Testing to ensure the app could handle a high volume of users and varying network conditions.
  4. Implementation to Business Growth: With CU Laterz's development and testing phases completed, we focused on ensuring the app's long-term success and growth in the market. Our team carefully managed the launch of CU Laterz on both iOS and Android platforms, set up real-time monitoring systems to track performance, and provided ongoing maintenance support to keep the app running smoothly. As the CU Laterz user base grew, we helped our client scale the app to accommodate the increasing demand, continually optimizing the app's infrastructure and features to ensure a seamless experience for users worldwide.

AWS Elemental MediaConvert Implementation

One of the most significant aspects of the CU Laterz project was the implementation of AWS Elemental MediaConvert to ensure a seamless video playback experience for users on various networks and devices. This section highlights the challenges, integration process, and the impact of AWS Elemental MediaConvert on user experience and app performance.

Challenges and requirements: To provide users with an optimal video playback experience, we needed to find a solution that could efficiently transcode videos into adaptive formats, ensuring smooth streaming regardless of the user's network bandwidth or device capabilities. Additionally, we needed a scalable solution that could handle the growing user base and the varying video formats generated by different devices.

Integration process: After evaluating various options, we chose AWS Elemental MediaConvert as the ideal solution for CU Laterz. We integrated the service into the app's architecture, configuring it to automatically transcode videos upon upload. This implementation enabled us to convert videos into adaptive bitrate formats, ensuring compatibility with various devices and network conditions. We also set up the necessary infrastructure to handle video storage, retrieval, and delivery efficiency.

Impact on user experience and app performance: With AWS Elemental MediaConvert integrated into CU Laterz, we've been able to deliver a seamless video playback experience to users, regardless of their network or device. The adaptive video transcoding ensures that users can enjoy smooth video streaming even in low-bandwidth conditions, significantly enhancing the overall user experience. Furthermore, the scalability provided by AWS Elemental MediaConvert has allowed us to accommodate the growing user base without compromising app performance or quality. The efficient video transcoding and delivery process have also helped reduce buffering times, further contributing to a positive user experience.

By implementing AWS Elemental MediaConvert in CU Laterz, we were able to overcome the challenges of video transcoding and streaming, ultimately delivering a high-quality and seamless video-sharing experience that users can enjoy across various devices and networks.
