  • 1. MediaMosa, yet another video platform?from end user application to platform service
    Marc Pluijmaekers – Technical Product Manager Video
    november 2010
  • 2. A little bit of history…
    Once upon a time… the Kennisnet Video Portaal (KVP)
    portal where schools could store their audio-visual content in one big container/collection
    However…some years later…
    Video sharing sites like YouTube seemed qualified to fulfill the needs of individuals or even individual schools
    the quality and capacity of YouTube grew faster than we could innovate
    YouTube has far more means to create new functionality
    Kennisnet may not disrupt the competitive market with supply and demand

  • 3. Why choosing a platform service
    Collection providers want to offer their content to their targeted educational sector under their own label
    Kennisnet’s mission is to support schools and educational facilities with independent services regarding the effective and safe use of ICT, thus improving the quality of teaching and learning.
    ERGO: A platform service instead of an end user application, targeting collection providers and (large) educational organizations
    No investments in streaming servers, storage, transcoding, etc. needed, collection providers can solely focus on presentation

  • 4. Make or buy: why invest in ‘yet another video platform’?
    The market is catching on, but a number of key features is lacking:
    Authorization and authentication
    (user)access to collections requires careful organization
    finding content is essential
    Collection management
    guarantees for quality, format, availability, service (contract) duration
    ERGO: “MAKE”: Let’s BUILD that video platform service ourselves !!!

  • 5. So then came…
    2007 >> start project VP-X: development of a video platform in cooperation with SURFnet and Madcap
    2008 >> going live with an operational video platform service: VP-Core
    2009 >> open sourcing of the VP-Core code: MediaMosa
    2010 >> developing new VP-Core / MediaMosa functionality
    three releases in 2010
    continuation of the operational service to collection providers connected to VP-Core
    community development

  • 6. Video platform as a building block for end user applications
    VP-Core is a building block for end user applications and offers a number of key features:
    authorization and authentication
    metadata management
    MediaMosa is software to build a Full Featured, Webservice Oriented Media Management and Distribution platform.

  • 7. Video services by Kennisnet
    Target customers: collection providers, large educational organizations and schools
    Proposition: Kennisnet delivers the platform en customers build their own end user application
    There is a white label end user application (WLE) available for customers to use as a starting point for their own end user application
    Collection providers have been successfully connected: S-TV and E-TV, who have built their own end user application
    Connecting individual schools was not successful: installing the WLE was (still) too complicated for them…

  • 8. Future plans
    Further development of MediaMosa and taking new functionality into production on our operational VP-Core platform
    Continue video platform services to current customers, connect new customers
