This is a guest post by Art Morgan , VP of Partner Development at Automatic Sync Technologies (AST). AST is a valued Kaltura Exchange partner that provides high quality transcripts, closed captioning, and subtitles for video, allowing video producers to quickly and efficiently make their videos accessible, searchable, and discoverable.
Many of AST’s customers in higher education are moving their video content to the Kaltura platform, so we began working with Kaltura to create a workflow integration that would meet their needs. The Eagle release of the Kaltura SaaS platform provided the perfect opportunity, with its new APIs for closed caption ingestion and video search. After gathering feedback from the Kaltura developer community and joint customers, AST released an integration that allows Kaltura users to request transcription and closed captions for videos from within the KMC with drag and drop simplicity. Whether you have just a few videos or thousands, the process is entirely automated, resulting in accessible videos optimized for video search. The video tutorial below explains the setup process and how to caption your Kaltura videos using AST’s CaptionSync service.

This guest post is authored by Tzahi Sofer, CEO of attracTV. attracTV is a Kaltura Technology Partner and the first vidget (video widget) platform – Whether it’s social viewing, commercial transactions, searching for program-related information or any other interactive content, vidgets give publishers, advertisers and developers tools to engage viewers while they watch a video, and all these activities are tracked, monitored and analyzed.
There is no doubt that video has become a significant part of the world of online business. Online video viewing in general and Internet TV in particular are increasing dramatically. Top-of-the-line network content, together with live sporting events, concerts, etc. are bringing millions of people to spend more and more time viewing programs on their personal computers and mobile devices. Substantial resources are being poured into this effort. Audience growth has jumped as viewers have come to appreciate the flexibility of a high-quality, television-like viewing experience.
Somewhere along the line, we have overlooked the fact that these viewers are seasoned Internet users who are not satisfied with a static viewing experience.
Introducing the attracTV vidgets platform. This new integration connects publishers’ vidgets account at attracTV with their Kaltura players and videos. In addition, developers can develop vidgets on top of attracTV’s platform and make them available to publishers.

The Kaltura Application Exchange is a relatively recent addition to the family of Kaltura websites, and it’s the place where we hope to showcase publishers, developers, technology companies and service providers who have integrated video applications and services with the Kaltura platform.
As an essential part of both our open source and commercial ecosystems, Kaltura partners get two immediate benefits by being listed on the Exchange. First, they are a visible part of the Kaltura ecosystem with their brand and technology next to ours. Besides this visibility and SEO, our customers can see what value partners add to the platform, and our salespeople are able to refer new and existing customers to the partners.
A second benefit is our referral agreement, where listed partners who have who have chosen to sign the agreement get a sales commission for any business deals they bring to Kaltura.
Finally, the Exchange is where developers who have created assets like skins for the Kaltura Dynamic Player can show off (and eventually sell) their product.
A payment gateway is just one of many new features we’re launching on the Exchange in the coming months.
