OVERVIEW

DETAILED IN OUR TECHNOLOGY SECTION ON OUR WHITEPAPER, OUR NEW INFRASTRUCTURE IS BASED ON SMART CONTRACTS, WHICH RUN IN CONJUNCTION WITH BLOCKCHAIN; ALONG WITH THE PAYMENT TRANSACTIONS. BLOCKCHAIN-BASED CRYPTOCURRENCIES SUCH AS BITCOIN AND ETHEREUM SUPPORT MICRO-PAYMENTS, WHICH WE FOUND OUT THROUGH MUCH TESTING AND RESEARCH, IS ESSENTIALLY NON-VIABLE WITH CLASSIC PAYMENT MEDIUMS DUE TO TRANSFER COSTS. FOR SHADOWBOX, THIS CAN SUPPORT A NEW WAY OF OFFERING “ON-DEMAND” MUSIC, MEDIA, AND MERCHANDISE SERVICES, REVENUE STREAMS AND METHODS OF EXCHANGE AND TRANSACTION.

A.) TELEVISION: GENERAL

AFTER THOROUGH ROUNDS OF MENTORSHIP AND TESTING, SHADOWBOX WILL EXECUTE ITS MULTI-CHANNEL ONLINE TV NETWORK VIA BETA (V3.2X) (LAUNCH DATE TBD) STARTING WITH ITS MUSIC OUTLET/CHANNEL TITLED STICK N MOVE. OUR “SOCIAL TV” FRAMEWORK WAS BUILT TO SHARE A BREADTH OF ENTERTAINMENT IN RELATION TO OUR (6) TIER SOCIAL/INTEREST MODEL FOCUSED ON:

  • SCREEN
  • MUSIC
  • LIFESTYLE
  • YOUTH
  • FASHION
  • CAUSE

THE SIX (6) GENRES IN OUR SOCIAL “CLASS” MODEL (SEE THE “MODELS” SECTION ON OUR WHITEPAPER FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS) WILL REMAIN PRESENT ON OUR MAGAZINE AND SELECT INITIATIVES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. GOING FORWARD (AND ALSO DETAILED IN OUR “TECHNOLOGY” SECTION ON THIS WHITEPAPER) WE WILL BE LEVERAGING “CLOUD-BASED VIDEO TECHNOLOGY” THAT HAS:

  • BEEN VERIFIED THROUGH RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT LAB INNOVATION, COMMITMENT, & INTELLIGENCE
  • DICTATED MINIMAL IMPACT TO CURRENT BROADCASTERS & CONTENT OWNERS USING OUR PLATFORMS SERVICES THROUGH (EXTERNAL/ INTERNAL) USE CASES

SHADOWBOX WILL STRATEGICALLY MANAGE STREAMS THROUGH ITS FORTHCOMING CLOUD-BASED PLATFORM, AND PROVIDES FOR FOR EXTERNAL DELIVERY OF LIVE AND ON-DEMAND CONTENT (TO POTENTIALLY MASSIVE AUDIENCES-AS APPLICABLE). FOR MARKETING USE CASES ALONE, SUCH AS AN EVENT STREAMING WITH A PRODUCT LAUNCH, (A CONCEPT WE TESTED AT OUR LAUNCH VIA SXSW (SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST); SCALING AND RELIABILITY CAN BE ACHIEVED IN A MUCH MORE FEASIBLE MANNER THROUGH THE SD-CDN PROCESS DEPLOYED BY OUR SOFTWARE USES CALLED SD-CDN SD-CDN (SOFTWARE DEFINED CONTENT DELIVERY NETWORK). SD-CDN TAKES ON THE USE OF MULTIPLE CDNS, WHILE REMAINING OPTIMIZED AROUND QUALITY OF SERVICE (QOS). AS MENTIONED, PLEASE SEE OUR “TECHNOLOGY” SECTION ON THIS WHITEPAPER FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS.

B.) TELEVISION: POP-UP

SHADOWBOX TELEVISION (IN CONJUNCTION W/ ITS (6) CHANNEL YOUTUBE SIDEARM MENTIONED IS DELIVERED THROUGH TEMPORARY “POP UP” STREAMING/BROADCASTING. KINDRED TO THE PASSION FOR “LIMITED” AND “EXCLUSIVE”, WHICH SPEAKS THROUGHOUT OUR PROPRIETARY BUSINESS MODELING, THE NATURE OF A TRADITIONAL “POP UP” ENGAGEMENT OFFERS A STRATEGY OF OPENING A SHORT TERM STORE, IN OUR CASE “A SOCIAL TV NETWORK STREAMING MEDIA” BY WHICHIS “OPEN FOR THIRTY(30)DAYS”,(YET IN OUR CASE, WITH AN OPTION TO EXTEND MEDIA SALES, STREAMS DOWNLOADS, AND LIVE EVENTS (COLLABORATIVELY/SELECTIVELY) THROUGH OUR “VAULT” AND (6) TIER ALTERNATIVE/FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT SYSTEM IN PLAY. PLEASE SEE THE “VAULT” SUB-SECTION ON THIS WHITEPAPER FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS.

C.) TELEVISION: ALTERNATIVE (6) CHANNEL – YOUTUBE “SIDE” ARM

OUR SIGN UP FORM WILL OFFER CONTRIBUTORS AN OPTION OF HOSTING THEIR CONTENT ON THE SHADOWBOX (6) CHANNEL YOUTUBE NETWORK AS WELL (SPECIAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY). IN 2012, 2013, AND THEN AGAIN IN 2014 IN AUSTIN, TX DURING LAUNCH, WE MET WITH YOUTUBE’S HEAD OF CONTENT PARTNERSHIPS. WE SAY GRATEFULLY THAT THE RESPONSE TO THE NETWORK OUTLINE WAS NOTHING BUT POSITIVE, PER THE STRUCTURE AND MODEL IN PLAY. YET, THE REJOINDER ALSO PROVIDED CONCERN. THROUGH 2011-2014, YOUTUBE MADE DYNAMIC SHIFTS TO DEFINED SYSTEMS, STRUCTURE AND/OR SOLIDIFIED OPERATIONS W/ STRUCTURED MONETIZATION PROGRAMS FOR CONTENT CREATORS. THIS EFFORT TO BUILD OUT A SIDE ARM THROUGH YOUTUBE POSED A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF CONFLICT AS WE BEGAN ACQUIRING NETWORK CONTRIBUTORS/USERS. AS OUR REPORTS ARE CURRENTLY DIFFERENT, IN THE EARLY 2010’S WE FACED A LARGE DIVIDE AMONGST ARTISTS WHOM:

  • HAVE SAID “NO” TO YOUTUBE
  • HAVE SAID “YES” TO YOUTUBE
  • HAVE “NO OPINION” PER YOUTUBE

LETS BE ON HONEST, OVER THE SPAN OF (5-7) YEARS, YOUTUBE HAS ALSO EVOLVED HEAVILY, AND IS HERE TO STAY.

C.1) TELEVISION: YOUTUBERS

SINCE THE EARLY DAYS OF CORPORATE TRANSITION INTO DIGITAL 2013- ENGAGED A HANDFUL OF “YOUTUBERS” WHO WISHED TO BRING THEIR POPULAR SHOWS AND PERSONALITIES TO OUR NETWORK, YET WE FELT CONFLICTED ON SHIFTING LARGE AUDIENCES FROM THEIR COMFORT ZONE (AT THE TIME) TO A NEW PLATFORM, AND AS TIME PROGRESSED THE ABILITY TO PACKAGE, DIVERSIFY AND SCALE AGGRESSIVELY (AS APPLICABLE). SO WE BUILT FURTHER RELATIONS WITH CONTRIBUTORS AND WILL PROSPECTIVELY OFFER A COLLABORATIVE YOUTUBE EFFORTS IN CONTENT HOSTING, PODCASTING, AND LIVE STREAMING EVENTS. TO REFERENCE THE CURRENT METRICS REGARDING SUBMITTED “YOUTUBER”. THEIR “AUDIENCE AVERAGE” IS AT THE MOMENT, AND OVER TIME, HAS REMAINED A CONSISTENT. ACROSS THREE-HUNDRED (250) SELECTED YOUTUBE “ONLY” SUBMISSIONS/PARTNERS TO THE NETWORK):

  • SUBSCRIBERS: (600,000-2.9) MILLION
  • VIEWS: (15-35) MILLION (BI-YEARLY AVERAGE)

SHADOWBOX CONTINUED TO EXECUTE AND DESIGN ITS MULTI-CHANNEL/ NETWORK (LAUNCH DATE TBD) STARTING WITH ITS MUSIC OUTLET TITLED STICK N’ MOVE. WHILE WE ARE CONFIDENT IN OUR ABILITY TO HOST OUR OWN NETWORK CONTENT AS A “STAND-ALONE”, AND “SCALABLE” MODEL, ADAPTABLE TO MANIPULATE FREEMIUM -SUBSCRIPTION PRICING ACROSS ITS SIX (6) TIER PRICING MODEL; WE ARE DISCUSSING VARIOUS KINDS OF VIEWERSHIP FOR THE LONG HAUL, FEEL THAT INCORPORATING YOUTUBE (AS A SELECTIVE/ ALTERNATIVE SIDE ARM) INTO OUR NETWORK’S “MULTI-MEDIA” AND PACKAGING INITIATIVES HELP US SECURE THE STRONGEST AND SAFEST MOVE. BEYOND YOUTUBE’S PROVEN POWER AND SCALE, WE ARE PLANNING TO MAKE USE OF THEIR NEW SOLUTIONS ARISING FOCUSED ON LOCALIZED MARKETING AT MEASUREMENT, AND GENERAL DIGITAL MARKETING IN GENERAL. OUR ANALYTICS PROVE THE POWER SOME OF OUR APPLICANTS HAVE GAINED THROUGH YOUTUBE, AND HERE IS A QUICK SNAPSHOT. YOUTUBE CURRENTLY DISPLAYS:

  • (1.9-2.1) BILLION USERS
  • (30-40) MILLION DAILY VISITORS.
  • (5-6) BILLION VIDEOS WATCHED DAILY
  • AVERAGE VIEWING SESSION OVER 40 MINUTES
  • 2ND LARGEST SEARCH ENGINE IN THE WORLD

TRADITIONAL TV VIEWERSHIP AND DISTRIBUTION WILL CONTINUE TO SHIFT TO ONLINE CHANNELS SUCH AS YOUTUBE, BUT WILL CONTINUE TO SEARCH FOR THAT “OTHER” OUTLET FOR THEIR ART. AFTER CAREFULLY PREPARING, IT’S EVIDENT THAT THE ADVANCEMENTS INITIATED BY YOUTUBE OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS ARE HELPING CREATORS AND BRANDS TO FULLY LEVERAGE CHANNEL, NETWORK, AND MONETIZATION STRATEGY IN THE MOST REWARDING FASHION TO DATE. WITH THE ABILITY TO REACH KEY DEMOGRAPHICS AND FIRE OFF CONVERSIONS OVERNIGHT, IT’S THE ALTERNATIVE “TV” SOLUTION WE WILL UTILIZE ACCORDINGLY (AS APPLICABLE). YET, QUESTIONS STILL REMAIN, FOR EXAMPLE:

  • SHOULD LABELS BE ABLE TO PULL THEIR ARTISTS’ MUSIC OFF OF SITES LIKE YOUTUBE?
  • WHAT IS A FAIR ROYALTY FOR VIDEO PLAYS ON SUCH A SITE?

D.) CONTENT CREATORS

OUR PLATFORM REALIZES THE INABILITY FOR MANY MUSIC RIGHTS HOLDERS TO INITIATE AN AGENDA AND BLUEPRINT FOR THEIR PRODUCT PLACEMENT ON DEMAND, THEREFORE WE FELT IT TO BE NECESSARY TO BUILD OUT AN OUTLET FOR ARTISTS, (ALONG WITH THEIR FAN BASES, TEAM MEMBERS, AND EVEN SUPPORTIVE ENTITIES THAT BRING FINANCIAL INTEREST TO THEIR TABLE AND INDUSTRY AS A WHOLE). WE PRIDE IN OFFERING CONTRIBUTORS THE ABILITY TO ISSUE THEIR OWN PLAN AND CONTRACT FOR:

  • LICENSING
  • SALES
  • STREAMING
  • DOWNLOADS
  • COMPENSATION (SHARED/INDIVIDUAL)
  • PACKAGING

ON A PLATFORM THAT INTENDS TO HOST AND PROMOTE THEIR MUSIC, MEDIA, AND MERCHANDISE IN THE MOST EFFECTIVE MANNER POSSIBLE, PER THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS PROVIDED.

SHADOWBOX: BATTLING THE PANDEMIC

AS WE MOTION THROUGH THE REPERCUSSIONS BROUGHT FORTH BY THE CURRENT “COVID-19 LOCKDOWN” (GLOBAL PANDEMIC), AND WEATHER THROUGH YET ANOTHER ECONOMIC STORM, WE RESPECT AND UNDERSTAND THE DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES BEFORE US; PER THE FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTORS INVOLVED IN OUR BUSINESS GROWTH , TO THE ACQUIRED ARTISTS THAT ARE SIGNING UP TO BECOME SHADOWBOXERS, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. WE ARE HERE TO HELP THROUGH ACTING UPON OPERATIONAL METHODS AND MODES, THAT AS STRANGE AS IT MAY SOUND, ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE CALCULATION AND COMPOSITION REQUIRED TO COUNTER THE OPPOSITION OUR TECHNOLOGICAL AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC FUTURE HAS IN STORE.
