The new tool is called KettleCorn and allows journalists to create interactive or contextual web videos
Video tool Popcorn Maker has been adapted for journalists’ needs, improving the speed at which interactive videos can be created.
The new tool is called KettleCorn and has been created by the Broadcasting Board of Governors, an international agency representing media. It was launched at MozFest, the Mozilla Festival, at the weekend.
Popcorn Maker is a free tool which offers users a way to build contextual video with live-updating content. It allows users to add rich media such as Google Maps, Wikipedia entries and tweets containing a particular hashtag. And because the end result is linked to the web, any new tweets will appear within the video real-time.
