Kaltura Community Edition Case Study – StreamUK Launching Enterprise Grade Kaltura CE based Video Platform.

This is a guest post by Duncan Burbidge, Co-Founder and CEO of StreamUK, a UK based webcasting and digital media company.

 

StreamUK was founded in 2001 to provide digital media solutions and back then you did everything yourself.  After 7 years of trying to match the increasing pace of technological development, the decision was taken to investigate options for StreamUK’s main online video platform (OVP).

In 2008, various options presented themselves, including partnerships with the likes of Brightcove, taking investment to re-develop our own OVP or working with an open source variant.  After trialling and modelling these approaches, it was decided that the latter (adopting an open source solution) was the most promising for three reasons:

  • Culturally – we, and more importantly our clients, needed control of their features from Europe;
  • Practically – we have huge value to contribute to the solution from a decade of accumulating knowledge at code, CDN and video levels;
  • Temporally(!) – we needed to get to market faster than we could develop from scratch.

StreamUK joined the global Kaltura community of experts (which at November 2011 stands in excess of 20,000) and began to contribute to the codebase of the Kaltura version 1.5 release.  As we became more familiar with the project, we became more impressed by it and in early 2009 we recruited a team of four full-time php-Zend developers to build on the framework, planning for a late 2010 release.

Content Moderation Workflows

by Roni Cohen

The Kaltura platform provides publishers with lots of great features and abilities. In this post and the next we will dive into some of the moderation features.

 

Content Moderation

A KalturaBaseEntry object includes moderation status which indicates whether the entry needs to be examined by an administrator or was already decided as an approved or rejected content. An Entry that awaits on the moderation queue is not yet available for public use, thus prevents unauthorized content from being automatically published on your site.
