We Started Building Ensemble Video in 2006
Ensemble Video grew out of a project at Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management in New York State, to create a flexible, easy-to-use video content management system. The inventors of the product are information and instructional technology professionals and educators.
In 2006 staff from the Whitman School developed a video content management system to help Syracuse University manage video across its component colleges. After experiencing success at Syracuse University, Andy Covell, the former executive director of information technology at Whitman, formed Symphony Video Inc. in early 2007 and secured exclusive worldwide rights to market the underlying patented technology in a commercial software product called Ensemble Video. Since then, Ensemble Video has been successfully deployed in hundreds of organizations and consortiums in in higher education, K-12, health care, government, and enterprise markets.
