About Us

Jilion is a pioneer and leading provider of no-compromises HTML5 Video Technologies.

SublimeVideo started in 2010 as the world’s first cloud-based HTML5 Video player; a pioneering solution that provides Web publishers with a fast, pain-free way to truly embrace and enable HTML5 and allows their videos to play flawlessly on any device, browser and web page.

Today, SublimeVideo Framework, the world’s first HTML5 Video Player Framework, goes a giant leap beyond existing HTML5 Video player implementations, by solving two big HTML5 Video challenges for the very first time: Providing brands and web publishers with both total graphic freedom and complete features modularity, that just work, with pixel-perfect rendering, on any web browser and the latest mobile platforms.

Our Mission

We care deeply about the Web and are committed to making contributions that push it forward.

The whole Web is currently moving toward HTML5. Web video in particular is entering its 3rd age, the HTML5 Video age. We developed SublimeVideo HTML5 Video Technologies from the ground up to turn the promises of HTML5 Video into a practical reality, today.

Our mission is to provide Web publishers with a fast yet powerful and reliable way to migrate to the mandatory HTML5 Video standard, so they can finally provide their audiences with no-compromise, perfectly branded and features rich video players that ‘just work’ on any platform!

Our Story

SublimeVideo started in January 2010, somehow by accident as it was initially just a simple demo, actually showcasing the world’s first functional, HTML5 Video Player with custom controls.

We never expected the tremendous, spontaneous and positive response we instantly received on Twitter and from leading web publications, including Daring Fireball, Wired, ReadWriteWeb, Mashable, to name a few.

From that moment on, we decided to focus on the mission of providing the Web with the best possible HTML5 Video solution in order to truly enable the HTML5 Video age.

Our Team

Jilion’s core team met at EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne), and initially started to work on a completely different Web project. This is how we “muscled” knowledge in Rails, JavaScript, CSS, etc. Thank you EPFL for creating the conditions for people like us to meet and start working together.
