Delivering video content to enhance research, learning and educational activities.
Multi-platform video specialists Switch Media today announced it has partnered with RMIT Publishing to support the development, delivery and operation of the RMIT video service Informit EduTV.
RMIT Publishing is the leading provider of online research specialising in content from Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region. Through its Informit brand of online databases and search platforms, RMIT Publishing makes it easy for students and teachers to search, research and discover the content they need to get better results.
Switch Media’s role in delivering the service was to provide RMIT Publishing with a complete workflow solution, IP head-end and a friendly user experience designed specifically to deliver the required functionality.
The service utilises Switch Media’s cloud based video content management system, the Switch Media Manager, to provide transcoding, clip creation, storage, metadata management and user authentication.
Switch also provided advanced player functionality which includes a simple four step process to provide users with the ability to easily create clips, merge video materials, upload files and share their completed play lists as projects.
Switch Media CEO Christopher Stenhouse commented,
“Informit EduTV is an invaluable contemporary resource for teaching and learning and we are delighted to have been chosen to partner in its deployment.”
Launched in early 2013, Informit EduTV sets a new standard in educational media products, making it easy for lecturers and students to search, find and instantly watch educational television content. Today the service is used regularly by over 15,000 subscribers who enjoy access to over 17,000 programs and 27 Terabytes of video content.
