Optimize Your Rich Media Investments
The team behind Ensemble Video takes pride in our ability to deliver exactly what you need to address your video and rich media challenges. One current challenge we help you address is doing more with less. Yes, it is possible.
Ensemble Video's cloud-hosted solution provides organizations with "on-demand" software delivered over the Web. The software as a service model allows organizations to access the core functionality of Ensemble Video at a very reasonable price point. Ensemble Video's hosted software pricing is based on a monthly or yearly fee and it removes the need for your organization to handle installs, set-ups, upkeep and maintenance.
Typically, our cloud-hosted solution customers have one-to-many users managing hundreds to thousands of videos across one to many departments and they work in one-to-many locations.
The cloud-hosted solution Ensemble Video system contains three integrated components:
- Ensemble Video: Ensemble Video is the video content software that stores the information, automates the media management and enables sharing.
- Rhozet Carbon Coder: Ensemble Video uses Rhozet Carbon Coder to transcode and compress media uploaded or ingested into Ensemble Video.
- Wowza Media Server: Ensemble Video uses Wowza Media Server to stream the video content to your users.
The cloud-hosted solution version of Ensemble Video is designed to give anyone access to the functionality and flexibility of Ensemble Video. Our cloud-hosted customers require administrative controls, media management, media sources and the publishing options of Ensemble Video, but they may not have the infrastructure, team, volume or budget to utilize the on-premise solution.
