The project started by bringing remote control to the mini cameras used on Ninja Warrior France, the onboard cameras on the 24h of Le Mans and the specialty cameras of Fort Boyard. Cyanview's range of products is quickly growing and finds applications in different markets: the use of specialty cameras on sports or game shows, enhancing video processing in general broadcast infrastructures, using Cinema cameras for Live Productions such as concerts and finally the new trend of remote production where any regular camera located in a stadium or anywhere should be controlled remotely from studios located in another city. Cyanview is now used worldwide on small and large events: remote control of more than 80 robotic cameras on the Australian Open, Rolland Garros and the US Open, correcting colors on a couple of specialty cameras on the SuperBowl, providing control on the UK EFL Ligue 1 from IMG Studios, color matching a racing drone on Nascar, or simply controlling mini-cameras on many football and basketball games.

Bubbly-Doo
Bubbly-Doo

When babysitting on 2 boys, Toine noticed that the youngest one never stayed interested in the bedtime stories he read to him. No book could really spark the boy's interest. So in a quest to find the perfect children’s book, Toine realized that by using personalization, every child could get a book that was about the things they love, a book unique and perfect for them. He joined forces with Gregory and we searched a great and diverse student-team of four. Within 6 months we built the company and launched the first book with more than 100.000 personalization options. Since then we have made happy families by selling more than 1000 fully personalized books in The Netherlands and Flanders. Not only have we sold this many books in only four months time, we were also selected for the Birdhouse, one of the most renowned accelerator programs in Belgium.
