The scheduling integration enables customers with a simple way to schedule and create multi-video recordings and auto-generated metadata (chapters, hi-res images, thumbnails, and searchable text) which are automatically uploaded into the Kaltura MediaSpace (KMS) video portal and learning management system (LMS) courses.

Creating video content takes a lot more effort than just flipping on a camera.

After all, it seemingly takes a small army to make the videos we watch as couch potatoes in our living rooms. Technicians need to get equipment in place. The lighting needs to be just right. Audio inputs have to be managed. And once you have good video captured, you need other professionals to edit it all together.

Little wonder that some folks can get overwhelmed ...

Sometimes, even technology industry buzz can feel like warmed-over leftovers.

At least that’s the way I feel when I begin hearing people gush about: “The Internet of Things” – seemingly the trend du jour following Google’s move earlier this year to buy technology provider Nest in a deal valued at $3.2 billion.

Since then, it seems like people have 3.2 billion reasons to fuss over the implications of an emerging set of technology applications that make it possible to ...

The Pursuit of Simplified Webcast Production

By Steve Vonder Haar

Meeting the demand for simplified webcast production has been the holy grail for streaming technology developers for years.

Leading vendors continually work to boil complex features out of their platform solutions.

Setting up cameras. Adjusting audio feeds. Getting the lighting just right. There’s a lot of work that goes into making presenters look presentable. Indeed, it’s fair to say that one of the biggest barriers to getting organizations to use video more frequently is the sheer challenge that can be associated with creating quality video content in the first place.

By: Steve Vonder Haar

Getting employees to watch pre-recorded streaming video in the workplace is something that is easier said than done.

Of course, we’d all like to think that our co-workers would be chomping at the bit to watch our video highlighting the division’s progress during the most recent quarter. And, naturally, who would pass up the opportunity to tap into some added training opportunities when given a chance to watch the video at the time of their choosing?
