Excellence in Capture and Streaming™
FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS
SERVER OVERVIEW
The Presentation Server is an open-standards, open-architecture video and
media Content Management System designed especially to handle the capture
and streaming of presentations and lectures given at Universities, medical
facilities, research laboratories, seminars, trade shows and conferences and
any other setting where a knowledge expert's presentation and discussion will
be recorded and streamed over internet networks.
Unlike other video content management systems, the Presentation Server has
facilities for dealing with both the video aspects of a presentation (e.g. a
camera shot of the presenter) and the graphical aspects of a presentation
(e.g. capture of computer screens, PowerPoints, Keynotes and similar
demonstration materials used by the presenter).
The separate identification and handling of these three components (video,
audio and graphics) separates the Presentation Server from its video-only
CMS peers.
ADMINISTRATIVE INTERFACE
The server presents two different graphical user interfaces to the world, one
being the administrative interface and the second being a viewer portal for
discovery and viewing of content.
The administrator controls a large number of functions related to acquiring
content for the server, identifying and indexing the material, verifying viewing
rights and planning the proper distribution and publishing of the final media.
VIEWER PORTAL
Once presentation content is properly filed and indexed within the server,
authenticated and authorized viewers of that content must be able to find it in
the system and view it at a convenient time and place and on playback devices
which might range from large screens in an auditorium to mobile phones and
tablets on the go.
SUMMARY OF WORKFLOWS
As mentioned earlier, with the potential acquisition of hundreds of new archives
each day, the work required to process each incoming presentation must be
minimal. The Presentation Server is ideally tailored to provide automated,
customizable workflows to be applied to each new incoming presentation.
ALL IN ONE
The Presentation Server enables an end-to-end
solution for lecture capture.
OPEN STANDARDS
The Presentation Server is based on open-standards
and open-architecture that are constantly evolving to
meet the needs of the industry. You are not locked
into a monolithic solution.
VIDEO/GRAPHICS SEPARATION
Video and graphics may be resized independently for
playback.
SOFTWARE ADVANTAGES
• Can organize and manage recordings
• Server is both a live streaming server and a video
on-demand server
• Unique architecture permits customized workflows
and special processing operations
• Full OCR-to-Text support
FUTURISTIC EXPANSION
Enables futuristic items such as the elimination of
expensive and complicated tracking cameras, infrared
necklaces, and more through software upgrades that
support automatic teacher tracking.

A workflow is a specification for a sequence of discrete processing steps to be
applied to incoming media, and it is possible to define a large set of different
workflows within a Presentation Server.
