Sidney MaestreOnline Video Monetization Strategies Using PayPal's HTML5 Kit and KalturaHTML5 & Mobile ApplicationsHow “free” has been redefined in the digital ageChris Anderson states in his book Free; The Future of a Radical Price that “bits want to be free”. If this is true, how can you build a sustainable business around digital content? In this session, we’ll explore several different monetization strategies, and ways to realize them through PayPal’s flexible APIs. Next, we’ll apply these strategies to the Kaltura Video player to create a Pay as You Go experiencewhere users are prompted to make a micropayment to unlock the full video after watching a preview. We’ll accomplish this using PayPal’s open source HTML5 toolkit for Digital Goods.

Leveraging Kaltura to bring about change in the world - A perspective of an iPhone developers first taste of integrating with the Kaltura system.

With mobile computing, ubiquitous video, we stand at yet another cusp of technology. In a few short years, the fact that everyone is carrying a HD camera with them at all times will revolutionize how we experience, remember and report on things. People are dropping cable TV in favor of Netflix. This will allow a new type of news reporting to creep into the home via the same internet connection that currently brings in their favorite TV/Movie streaming service. More details of this idea can be found here.
It's going to be a great ride these next few years. You can be a player or an observer of this tide of change. Come to Tom's session and hop into the driver's seat to bring about this change.

Chris YoungScaling Kaltura Guided by TestsMedia Management & OperationsAutomated testing using Selenium Web Driver and SikuliAt Base79 we work with content owners to help maximise their revenues across web sites, social media and connected devices. To do this, we need to have confidence that as the level of demand on Kaltura grows, the system will grow with us. To do this we are building Automated Testing and Instrumentation. The staring point is a set of programmatically created unique assets. We then automate the flow of these assets through the system as we exercise typical use cases. As we scale our, we can test and compare our profile data to see the impact of these changes.
Roberto Moreno and Sean OuimetAutomated Video Slide-show Creation with Node.js and KalturaMedia Management & OperationsMaking Google understand ContextA architectural overview of how we leverage Kaltura’s platform to help us generate automated (real estate) video tours for inclusion on our website platform. Videos provide an advantage over sites which feature similar data, as we can now compete on video search results. The process: Videos are queued up for creation when our 3rd party feeds get updated. Worker apps then create individually branded opening/closing slides, watermarks, animated images and add music. Once ready, videos are uploaded to Kaltura where they’re added to relevant playlists and sitemaps. The videos display on the correct sites. Technologies: Node.js, MLT, Amazon SQS, PHP
Bob Craig and Ron WallaceBridging Television News and Web ProductionMedia Management & OperationsBuilding a platform for automating media publishingAvid is a product and solutions focused company whose customers are content creators in the film, audio, and broadcast industries. Our customers in news are struggling to integrate their broadcast news and web news operations to better leverage the content being generated for each separate platform. To address this need, we developed a proof of concept that leverages both Avid products and third-parties, including Kaltura, to demonstrate workflows that would allow a broadcaster's broadcast and web operations to share video and story content seamlessly. This proof of concept focuses on the needs of news customers, but applies generally to any customer needing a multi-platform distribution solution. The presentation will describe the role of Kaltura in the project and how integration with it was achieved.

David HassounExtending the Kaltura Dynamic Player with Industry & Custom OSMF PluginsMedia Management & OperationsExtending OSMF, the underlying framework of the KDP.The core of the Kaltura Dynamic Player (KDP) is built with the extremely powerful Adobe Open Source Media Framework (OSMF). This powerful and widely used framework has many benefits and at the top of that list is a robust extensibility system in the form of plugins. There is already a wealth of plugins available from the open source community and from service providers however many only scratch the surface when it comes to potential. This session will dive you into enhancing the KDP with the power of OSMF Plugins.
You will learn about the capabilities and implementation process on the KDP but also how to build OSMF plugins and how they can be reused and enhance players far beyond what many believe is possible with this powerful and often overlooked extensibility. A short review of some of the already available plugins will be covered. Basics of the OSMF plugin architecture will be covered, as well as tips and tricks to go beyond the norm of what can be achieved with them.
