Institutions and corporations are capturing and recording large amounts of video, from classroom lectures to board meetings to training materials. A video content management system not only stores that video content, but also keeps it organized and accessible.
Organizing Video Content
Think of a well-organized hard drive. It has folders and subfolders, with a clear and consistent naming strategy. Users can find files quickly and easily. While an individual can easily maintain this level of organization, it can be much more difficult on a larger scale. When there are large amounts of video content, they may be stored in different locations and storage facilities. Naming and organization is often erratic. A VCMS facilitates a well-organized and accessible media collection. Content is structured, organized and accessible. More importantly, all media content is organized within the same system, rather than over multiple drives or cloud-based services.
Searching for Media Content
A VCMS provides users with the ability to search the entire media collection with ease. A search interface enables users to search generally through video content, or more specifically through video titles, descriptions, or other information. Effective search tools mean that users can easily find what they need, even if they’re unsure about some of the specifics about the video.
Delivering Videos and Media
Media delivery requires both a high-quality media player, and the ability to deliver content where it is needed.
- Media published publicly is accessible without logging in and becomes part of the public face of your corporation or institution.
- Internal video content can be organized for access by different users. Logged in users can see and watch content easily.
- Lecture capture recordings, uploaded media and linked video content can be watched on a computer or a mobile device.
- Adaptive bitrate streaming supports a high-quality video learning experience for users with varying internet speeds.
- Content may even be shared through an RSS feed or published to YouTube.
