MediaPointe is taking the YouTube craze to heart. Recognizing that every individual—and company, institution, and facility—is a content creator, MediaPointe is releasing its MediaPointe Ensemble, a server that stores and streams video files over a network. It’s an organized collection pool for all the disparate content. The company is saying its YouTube for the office or school.
The real power is recalling those videos that can get lost in the storage ether. A Google-like interface allows you to search for that sales video or that video on astro physics, finding it quickly and easily for a time-pressed meeting or a class. Much like SEO, when you upload any rich media content to the server, you tag it with applicable search terms and a description. The results page is clean and professional—something that YouTube isn’t.
In conjunction, MediaPointe released AESOP, a 1TB digital video storage device that connects to MediaPointe’s Digital Media Recorder (DMR) 210e, giving organizations more storage for their growing collect of content. The AESOP also gives DMR users one source of access to multiple DMR units.
