Superman Web3 Movie Experience Powered by Eluvio
Eluvio, a pioneer of Web3 innovation throughout the media and entertainment industry, powers the Superman Web3 Movie Experience.
The Eluvio Content Blockchain provides a high-performance, simple-to-use, cost-effective Web3 platform built for content. It enables Web3 native media experiences, allowing publishers and fans to directly enjoy and monetize shows, films, concerts, digital albums, digital collectables, interactive and metaverse experiences, and more.
Content creators, and their communities, benefit from a significantly more carbon-efficient and high-performance alternative to traditional platforms for content streaming, distribution, and storage, including 4K streaming, ticketing, NFT minting, and trading of premium content.
Notably, in this experience, the core digital assets and derivative NFTs are all on the blockchain, not just the token (NFT) itself. Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment and fans enjoy blockchain-backed access control and content rights enforcement, scalable attestation of ownership, smart contracts that enable distributed royalties, and content experiences that can evolve.
Eluvio’s Content Blockchain also provides a breakthrough in carbon-footprint efficiency in managing media, using blockchain technology, and on-chain content ownership. Through a novel compositional and just-in-time protocol, the Eluvio Content Blockchain does not make digital file copies. It significantly reduces network storage and usage requirements compared to traditional streaming and content distribution systems.
It uses an eco-friendly “proof-of-authority” consensus, which avoids the high energy consumption used in computational “proof-of-work” blockchains.
