What is Media Channel?
Media Channel is a video platform for publishing your video content online. Offering a user-friendly, elegant design on top of powerful search and sharing capabilities, this modern approach to an online video channel is perfect for organisations who wish to present their content in an on-brand, accessible way.
How does Media Channel work?
By automatically transcribing the audio from your videos, Media Channel creates new, searchable metadata, unlocking this content to help people to find exactly what they are looking for.
For example, if someone in a video mentions the ‘climate crisis’, Media Channel will offer this video under search results for that phrase. What's more, when clicking on a certain word in the transcript, the video player automatically jumps to that point in the video.
With search, clip, and share, your audience can find the content they are looking for, create a clip and share that clip on social media channels.
The app-like experience is responsive and supports desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.
How does the integration work with Asset Bank?
Media Channel uses Asset Bank as its source of content. Video files and associated information is extracted from Asset Bank and used to populate the video platform. Any changes you make in Asset Bank are reflected on the site after the next extraction. This ensures your video content is always up to date and allows you to be in control of what is published.
Media Channel also leverages your categorisation in Asset Bank to populate filters on the site allowing you to group your video content into themes for exploration.
The original project was funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Read more about how the platform is working for The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.
