MediaMosa, yet another videoplatform

  1. 1. MediaMosa, yet another video platform?from end user application to platform service<br />Marc Pluijmaekers – Technical Product Manager Video<br />november 2010<br />
  2. 2. A little bit of history…<br />Once upon a time… the Kennisnet Video Portaal (KVP)<br />portal where schools could store their audio-visual content in one big container/collection<br />However…some years later…<br />Video sharing sites like YouTube seemed qualified to fulfill the needs of individuals or even individual schools<br />Besides: <br />the quality and capacity of YouTube grew faster than we could innovate<br />YouTube has far more means to create new functionality<br />Kennisnet may not disrupt the competitive market with supply and demand<br />MediaMosa, yet another video platform?<br />
  3. 3. Why choosing a platform service<br />Collection providers want to offer their content to their targeted educational sector under their own label<br />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.<br />ERGO: A platform service instead of an end user application, targeting collection providers and (large) educational organizations<br />No investments in streaming servers, storage, transcoding, etc. needed, collection providers can solely focus on presentation<br />2<br />MediaMosa, yet another video platform?<br />
  4. 4. Make or buy: why invest in ‘yet another video platform’?<br />The market is catching on, but a number of key features is lacking:<br />Authorization and authentication<br />(user)access to collections requires careful organization<br />Metadata<br />finding content is essential<br />Collection management<br />guarantees for quality, format, availability, service (contract) duration<br />ERGO: “MAKE”: Let’s BUILD that video platform service ourselves !!!<br />3<br />MediaMosa, yet another videoplatform?<br />
  5. 5. So then came… <br />2007 >> start project VP-X: development of a video platform in cooperation with SURFnet and Madcap<br />2008 >> going live with an operational video platform service: VP-Core<br />2009 >> open sourcing of the VP-Core code: MediaMosa<br />2010 >> developing new VP-Core / MediaMosa functionality<br />three releases in 2010<br />continuation of the operational service to collection providers connected to VP-Core<br />community development<br />MediaMosa, yet another video platform?<br />
  6. 6. Video platform as a building block for end user applications<br />VP-Core is a building block for end user applications and offers a number of key features:<br />storage<br />streaming<br />transcoding<br />authorization and authentication<br />metadata management<br />MediaMosa is software to build a Full Featured, Webservice Oriented Media Management and Distribution platform.<br />5<br />MediaMosa, yet another video platform?<br />
  7. 7. Video services by Kennisnet<br />Target customers: collection providers, large educational organizations and schools<br />Proposition: Kennisnet delivers the platform en customers build their own end user application<br />There is a white label end user application (WLE) available for customers to use as a starting point for their own end user application<br />Collection providers have been successfully connected: S-TV and E-TV, who have built their own end user application<br />Connecting individual schools was not successful: installing the WLE was (still) too complicated for them…<br />6<br />MediaMosa, yet another video platform?<br />
  8. 8. Future plans<br />Further development of MediaMosa and taking new functionality into production on our operational VP-Core platform<br />Continue video platform services to current customers, connect new customers<br />MediaMosa community development<br />7<br />MediaMosa, yetanother video platform?<br />
