Polycom Inc Accordent Media Management System Product Details
Organizations using Microsoft SharePoint solutions are increasingly facing requests to include video and rich media content within the portal user experience. However, the attributes of video capture, upload, publishing and network delivery are distinct from other forms of enterprise content, demanding a solution specifically designed to address these unique requirements. Organizations are asking for "YouTube-for-the-enterprise" functionality. They are also demanding easy-to-use capabilities that provide a management system for IT that enables video asset capture and aggregation, content approvals and expirations, and configurable network delivery that provides "scale after the click" within the SharePoint environment for both live and ondemand video content.Polycom and Microsoft have developed a seamless integration between the Polycom Accordent Media Management System (Polycom AMMS) solution and Microsoft SharePoint 2010 to deliver unique Polycom AMMS enterprise video management capabilities within SharePoint. Rather than merely providing a "cut and paste" integration, the teams collaborated to re-conceive multiple views of Polycom AMMS content within SharePoint and harmonize the way video assets are searched for and previewed within the SharePoint search function.As a result of this integration between the Polycom Accordent Media Management System, Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and other key components of Microsoft infrastructure, users can create, publish, access and view video content using the applications already used to perform their daily jobs. At the same time, administrators can control the use, management, storage, and delivery of video assets throughout the content life cycle.Optimized video performance - the Polycom AMMS SharePoint integration optimizes live or on-demand streaming video performance through Polycom AMMS content creation and distribution profiles, which reference enterprise video servers, storage area networks and bandwidth-efficient network routing schemas.Centralized video asset publishing and management - end users can access all video assets - whether recorded from the classroom, the desktop, or from third-party sources -through Polycom AMMS. Seamless integration with SharePoint enables in-application, termbased searching and browsing of video assets. IT staff can set rules for video approval, formatting, publishing, storage and retention and proactively track viewership reporting for business and IT reporting purposes.Video recording, publishing and upload from the desktop - users can record and publish Lync Server 2010 sessions, and upload media files directly to Polycom AMMS for entry into a content approval queue. This enables IT departments to offer a more distributed course capture solution, without the need to install, administer, and maintain additional desktop software products.
