Client: RPM Visual Media
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.
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.
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
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.
.NET 3.5, ASP.NET 3.5, C#, PostGre SQL Database, XML, Third Party Site API Integration, Google
Visualization Library API, REST Methodology
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
• Reliable Decision Support
• Faster upload mechanism • Advanced Interactive Report
