Tjoon – A Refreshing New Video Application

Josh Lowensohn from webware introduced me to a cool new application, that gives the concept of one man show a whole new perspective – Tjoon.

The site is a split screen video recording system. what makes it interesting is the application itself – The site offers musicians to record themselves playing different instruments, and create a clip composed from all instruments.

I find it pretty cool – though it is an extremely niche application. Doing such a thing with Ustream though can be pretty cool (most live broadcasting solutions offer 2 hosts only).

I am not certain if this project is a business or just for fun, and there is not a lot of information about the team behind that. On the other hand – YouTube also started as a local video sharing solution…

In any case, if any of the founders are reading this post – please contact me, I’d love to hear more about your project.

Here is a short clip showcasing the application:

    The app looks very cool, easy to use.
    I will definitly show it to a few friends that jam online using cam chats.
    Tjoon does make joined recording easier, at least for demo quality.

    I don’t know how can Tjoon make money, but they are smart enough to fill the site with Adwords and banners 🙂 i hope it covers their costs.

    Cheers

    Hi Kfir,

    Thanks for the mention. I’m one of the makers of Tjoon.com and it is indeed more of a fun project. Tjoon was conceived as one of our “pet projects” that we like to work on after hours to explore some ideas that live within our team. FYI http://www.superuse.org is another one of our pet projects that is completely different from Tjoon (or our main product Floorplanner) and that’s part of the fun in creating and working on them.
    You are right that Tjoon is an extremely niche application That’s how we set it up. We don’t have the ambition to turn Tjoon into broader video social network but instead are interested in making just one thing (split screen video recording) very easy and a fun process.
    It’s already very rewarding to see what people are doing with Tjoon and that motivates us to improve Tjoon in the future. Just a couple of days ago we have changed the time limit from 30 seconds to 3 minutes so now people can create their own single. We are also looking into a way to export movies easily to Youtube.

    Would love to talk further with you about Tjoon annd our team. Send me an email if you want.

    Jeroen
