Fordela 3.0, a Cloud-based Video Management Solution

Fordela Corporation announced the release of its cloud-based Video Management Solution (VMS) 3.0

Fordela Corporation, a San Francisco-based digital asset management software and rich-media services company, announced on Thursday the release of its cloud-based Video Management Solution (VMS) 3.0.

The Fordela 3.0 VMS offers a scalable, customizable and easy to use solution that enables organizations to upload, control, and deliver rich-media assets such as video, audio, images and related documents to colleagues around the world. Utilizing the agility of cloud computing and a modular design framework, Fordela can be deployed as a 100% hosted or converged configuration, integrating into on-site Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems.

This easy-to-use solution has an aesthetically stunning and highly intuitive user interface that incorporates advanced Web 2.0 workflows. It is also a completely customizable white-label solution that enables internal staff to search, modify and distribute media assets in a fully branded experience. This ability to customize the VMS and video players significantly expands partnership opportunities.

Additional upgrades to the core cloud-based digital asset management application include: codec-agnostic media uploader improvements for faster file processing; live capture; custom profile media transcoding and version control; custom metadata field inputs; WYSIWYG text editors; expanded multi-document attachments to video assets; and review and approval workflows.

With the dramatic increase in the use of rich-media assets across multiple departments within organizations, knowledge workers are finding it increasingly difficult to locate, manage and distribute content to their fellow employees, customers and partners. Utilizing the agility of the cloud, the Fordela solution can be rapidly deployed without the cost, resources and time constraints that traditional software and hardware installation packages require.

Additionally, Fordela offers an extensive set of online editing tools, public or private custom players, and online transcode settings empowering internal personnel to 'help themselves' to approved assets in the formats they need. Built with the non-technical user in mind, organizations can quickly roll out and manage vast amount of rich-media in a workflow that makes sense to their organization.

At Fordela, software isn't dead, it's just moved to the cloud!
