To realize its unique vision for the app, Screenslam partnered with Bracket7, a technology services company that specializes in the development of iPad, iPhone and web applications. “Bracket7 was the perfect tech partner for us,” continued Conte. “They do not merely implement functional specifications, they develop the best product by focusing on aesthetic design, usability, performance and functionality.”

Screenslam.com launched in February 2011 as an online video destination dedicated to movies and TV. Developed and owned by ZAP Entertainment, a 22-year old international news operation based in Hollywood with an extensive video archive and tremendous access, Screenslam produces original content ranging from 2-3 minute segments to 15-minute shows on a daily basis. Screenslam’s coverage includes original celebrity interviews, red carpet premieres, festivals, awards shows and behind-the-scenes set visits. Screenslam is as much about discovery as it is about entertainment. All of its content is organized contextually and linked together as “related slams” which allows the user to delve deeper into a particular title, actor, director or genre.
Screenslam uses Akamai’s superior global platform of thousands of servers as the default delivery network for both the website and the new iPad app. Screenslam’s video playback detects the bandwidth and system specs for each user automatically and adjusts the delivery bit-rate accordingly, allowing seamless video playback with no delays in loading or buffering.
Screenslam.com is available online and on mobile devices worldwide.
