Kaltura Unveils Video Creativity Suite

Kaltura, a provider of video technology and institutional video management, has unveiled its new Video Creativity Suite.

Kaltura Video Creativity Suite "includes tools for capturing, creating, recording, uploading, editing, annotating, segmenting and adding calls to action to videos," according to the company. Based on a recent Kaltura survey of educational technology leaders and faculty, approximately half of respondents said there were "no sufficient tools available to support easy incorporation of video into their class workflow." Based on that feedback, Kaltura designed its Video Creativity Suite to provide "ease of use, accessible design and single-click capabilities," according to information from the company.

"The suite allows professors and students to focus their creativity on the content, rather than on the technology," said said Ron Yekutiel, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Kaltura, in a prepared statement. "Video Literacy is a critical aspect of digital literacy now days, and we hope to further simplify the use of video with these new tools."

One of the tools included in Video Creativity Suite is the company's personal capture tool, Kaltura CaptureSpace. With CaptureSpace, faculty and students can create multi-source video recordings from anywhere using a computer, tablet or smartphone, and then upload the videos to the Kaltura Platform for publishing in a learning management system (LMS) or in the Kaltura MediaSpace social video portal.

According to the company, Video Creativity Suite works with the company's video management solution for cross-campus media deployment, so schools can use it for "live events, alumni outreach, course material for teaching and learning, media based student assignments, training videos, video demonstrations and the management and playback of licensed content."

The company also announced that its video player "video player now supports multi-device publishing of synchronized videos and slides that are captured by CaptureSpace or by other third party lecture capture products."
