Welcome to the World of Kaltura: A Media Management Haven
Have you ever lost your keys? It is a very frustrating feeling. What if someone or something was assigned to always manage them for you? Now that would really make you feel better. Now imagine if those keys were very important videos. Kaltura is an excellent media tool for managing, converting and distributing video. David Hopkins will demonstrate how Kaltura’s video management works. He will show how Kaltura connects to systems like Blackboard, Roxen, and Drupal.

For the past three decades, the Princeton University Art Museum and the Office of Information Technology have collaborated on many innovative projects. During the 1980s. the Piero Project produced a real time three-dimensional tour of the Basilica of San Francesco in Arezzo, Tuscani. During the 1990s, OIT led the development of Almagest, a media management, presentation, and authoring tool.
Today, OIT and the Princeton University Art Museum are collaborating on the delivery of the museum’s collection through Roxen, the University’s web Content Management System. Customarily, museums are able to display only a small fraction of their holdings, but all museums recognize that one of their most important objectives is to make available scholarly content. Today, with the availability of powerful new development tools and special components to cost-effectively connect to the museum’s SQL Collection Information Management System, the Art Museum will be able to promote existing collections and to provide online access to local and even international researchers to a much larger portion of its holdings and events.
