Presenting at OpenVideoConference in New York City

We are happy to have had the opportunity to give a presentation about at Open Video Conference in New York City. The presentation was part of a metadata round table concerned with time-dependant metadata. During the presentation I gave a short introduction of the shortcomings of educational video and how we overcome those by the use of automatically and manually created time dependent metadata. Additionally, I gave a demonstration of the platform, which causes incredible positive reactions in the audience.

It is exciting to participate at this conference, to join the open video community and to meet so many interesting people here.

"Open Video is a broad-based movement of video creators, technologists, academics, filmmakers, entrepreneurs, activists, remixers, and many others. When most folks think of “open,” they think of open source and open codecs. They’re right—but there’s much more to Open Video. Open Video is the growing movement for transparency, interoperability, and further decentralization in online video. These qualities provide more fertile ground for independent producers, bottom-up innovation, and greater protection for free speech online."
