Cloud Video Editing (and much more) with Kaltura

A Platform for Cloud Video Editing and Content Management

Whether for the desktops, laptops, tablets, or mobile phones, it’s no argument that video has become the king medium for content consumption. To stay relevant and competitive, companies are becoming content creators — with marketing budgets being channeled into the video medium in increasing amounts. This has created a new challenge and business units are now realizing it’s necessary to deploy and own a video content management system or platform that helps them not only ingest and edit video but also share, distribute, manage and possibly monetize their content online across a variety of devices. Enter Kaltura, one of the world’s leading video platforms for a wide variety of applications and use cases in video content delivery and management.

Kaltura: An Open Source Video Platform

Its mission is to power any video experience and Kaltura is a recognized leader in the OTT TV (Over the Top TV), OVP (Online Video Platform), EdVP (Education Video Platform), and EVP (Enterprise Video Platform) markets. Its platform has been deployed globally in thousands of enterprises, media companies, service providers, and educational institutions. Additionally, it has gone on to engage hundreds of millions of viewers at home, work, and school. There’s no doubt that at some point you have consumed some media which has passed through a Kaltura deployment. Today we’re going to explore how easy it is to deploy Kaltura on the cloud.

Why Deploy on the Cloud?

Kaltura has seen users demand to support a scalable and easy to deploy model for Kaltura platform stacks. To that end, they have created a private cloud edition and also support public cloud. The Cloud Edition of the Kaltura Video Platform is great for organizations looking for:

  • Lower infrastructure costs by hosting your own Kaltura stack on a public cloud provider
  • Flexible cloud infrastructure for scaling up and distributing server load.

Using the public cloud to deploy Kaltura speeds the set-up process and will not only enable you to try out the software quickly, but will also provide a reusable stack / Chef recipe that you can use to deploy the latest version of Kaltura without worrying about maintaining configurations. We will have the user guide published shortly, but take the time out to let us know which features you’d like to see us demo on Kaltura in the comment section below.
