No matter what your perspective — on mediAm your viewing tastes and interests are considered unique. It’s great to be part of the crowd, and on mediAm you can go there too — but our site is designed for you as an individual.
We’re a Library — not a Video Store
With mediAm searching is easy. Find what you want with a single word. You can search by genre, subject, style and theme.
Films are also filtered by nationality, language and release date more
The mediAm Library
The mediAm library is divided into four categories: Entertainment, Documentary, Education and Performance — with one click you can be where you want to be.
Each category has over 35 genres in a drop-down menu. Once you choose your area of interest, you can get right to specifics.
You can find content from your own country or from any country that may be of interest.
“What’s new” is the default, so you can always find the latest films. You can also filter alphabetically by release date, popularity and film length.
Our library provides more than just posters. On mediAm you can watch a trailer or read a synopsis without losing your place.
Each title also has a more detailed presentation page with additional trailers, photos, documents and links. Just click on the artwork and you will find it.
Mind your personal media . . .
The mediAm Queue has the full sort and search functionality
of the media library — providing you with the vantage and control you need.
The mediAm Queue
On mediAm we recognize the difference between browsing for content and managing what you have already selected. The mediAm Q is way more than a wish list — it's your personal library.
When you’re in surf mode, you can place hundreds or even thousands of titles into your queue and still be able to find and filter what you want when you want it.
Every time you move content to the Q you can write yourself a note describing why you have selected a title and why you should watch it later.
You can even allow trusted “like minds” to place content in your queue.
With the mediAm Q if you want to watch a bluegrass concert it's right at your fingertips. So is your next guitar lesson, a great old western or the latest TV episode.
Share what you like with “Like Minds”
Personal recommendations are priceless.
mediAm is tailored for one-to-one as well as focused group communities.
The mediAm Community
The mediAm community includes content creators as well as content viewers.
Use mediAm to make relevant recommendations to specific like-minded people.
On mediAm we do not use algorithms to suggest content. We provide you with the tools to find like-minded viewers who will make better recommendations than any software.
View content in a definition that suits your needs
All mediAm content definitions can be viewed on virtually any device. So when you are streaming on your phone or tablet you won’t need to pay for HD streaming.
Our web viewer is in flash format for computers. Download and mobile streaming players use industry standard h264 mp4 files.
Purchased / downloaded mp4 files can be viewed with all modern media players.
For large screen viewing, we suggest using an iPad or tablet for content selection and management, and using a flat screen TV as a display monitor.
Spread your ideas and interests
On mediAm your engagement is hugely important.
Your referrals, recommendations and compilations help
determine what films gets made and how successful they will be.
The mediAm Ecosystem
On mediAm we don’t tell you or others what to watch — we are "content neutral."
Our aim is to give you the tools to become your own network executive, programming content for yourself and like-minded viewers.
Our Recommendation Lists let you publish a catalogue of your recommendations both on and off the site. Your personal list has its own URL so you can post it on social media or email it to a friend.
Our Compilations feature lets moderators publish a catalogue of content based on subject matter or theme. Compilations are listed on a dedicated page and can also be linked to personal or institutional websites. Compilations are great for educational curricula, or for organizations promoting specific content.
Crafted by a Local Film Community . . .
for the Global Film Community
At mediAm, our mission is to foster the growth of all types of media production
by engaging audiences in a new form of distribution — one that enables
viewers to find, watch, promote — and through direct payment — help fund
the content they value most.
The mediAm Corporate philosophy
mediAm is located in Vancouver, British Columbia. It has been funded and developed by dedicated film professionals and technicians with a vested interest in a sustainable film production industry.
The mediAm corporate structure is based on the principle of social entrepreneurship. Our company is designed to make a profit — but not a huge one.
At mediAm we have placed a cap on capitalism. Our hard-working shareholders may eventually have a comfortable retirement through mediAm, but they will never get rich. The majority of mediAm profits are reinvested in film production.
There is no exit strategy. mediAm is not for sale. It is a privately held company with a clear corporate mandate to promote film production through democratized distribution.
mediAm intends to expand globally. We want to have autonomous representation in every linguistic and cultural region. If you want to represent mediAm in your region please contact us to find out more.
