Client: RPM Visual Media Project Overview RPM Visual Media [RPMVM] is a full service video branding company that provides clients with efficient resources to manage, produce, distribute and host video assets. RPMVM enables their customers to upload videos to their (RPM) site, and from there, they can select multiple sites from which the videos can be viewed by the public, such as YouTube, BlipTv, etc., for marketing purposes. RPM customers can then manage the sites and can generate demographic reports from each as to how many web‐users viewed their videos. In April 2009, RPMVM entered into a strategic alliance with Speridian to ensure their place at the forefront of web‐video applications development, marketing and asset management. Problem RPMVM needed the ability to upload manifold heterogeneous videos to multiple websites at any given point of time. RPMVM also needed better management capabilities for these sites. Due to limitations imposed by target sites like YouTube, file‐size restrictions had to be determined and accompanying customer alert mechanisms needed to be created that would precede the video file uploads to other sites. Proposed Solution Speridian conducted a detailed business requirements assessment and mapped the requirements to the system. Speridian developed an application that verifies the file size before the file is uploaded to the server. Speridian further enhanced the solution by adding a Windows utility for scheduling video file uploads to target websites. The Speridian solution also includes functional highlights such as: • Package Push • Configurable Workflow • Advanced Reporting • Conflict Check • Automated Usage Tracking Services Speridian provides RPMVM with our proven onsite/offshore methodology to provide round the clock development and the greatest cost‐efficiencies. Post implementation of each module, Speridian provided knowledge transfer and client resource training to ensure smooth turnover of the enhanced system to RPMVM staff, and Speridian continues to provide web and Windows services to RPMVM. Technology .NET 3.5, ASP.NET 3.5, C#, PostGre SQL Database, XML, Third Party Site API Integration, Google Visualization Library API, REST Methodology Challenges The key challenge was in performing the system integration through third party application APIs. Speridian’s technologists went to work to understand the method calls and architectures. Despite the need to decipher the third party API information, Speridian was able to develop a solution well within the scheduled delivery time and budget.
Results: Speridian has brought RPMVM streamlined processes, flexible workflow and improved transparency. Speridian continues to work with RPMVM to transform the whole process into the fastest, automated Video Optimization with minimal reporting turnaround time. RPMVM passes these efficiencies onto their customers by offering: • 360 Degree Data View • Automated Usage Tracking • Effective Enterprise Launching Mechanism • Reliable Decision Support • Faster upload mechanism • Advanced Interactive Report Capabilities Components
