Origin Digital, a global video applications service provider, today announced its support of video applications on Microsoft SharePoint Server and for applications using Web tools in Microsoft Silverlight. Origin Digital will showcase its Web-based Odaptor solution that seamlessly aggregates, manages, transforms, and distributes digital content and video anywhere, in any format, for any device or screen, in the Microsoft exhibit during the NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 14-17, 2008.
Leveraging Odaptor, Microsoft .NET developers can now transcode and publish video and user generated digital content within SharePoint environments. Users can share, view, and publish videos from any format with ease in real-time through Odaptor’s workflow management tools. The direct support of video applications and publishing enriches the SharePoint platform by enabling custom development, video branding, digital content management, and archiving.
“Digital video is proliferating and it’s penetrating all corners of the marketplace. The way users are developing, managing, and viewing video is constantly evolving, and this creates an ongoing opportunity for the creation of cutting edge video applications,” said Darcy Lorincz, CEO, Origin Digital. “As a .NET developer, Origin Digital understands the needs and desires of the development community and recognizes that both Microsoft’s workspace solutions and its platform-agnostic development tools can have a profound impact on the way video is created and experienced.”
“With the Internet now a widely accepted channel for video, the success of broadcasters and media companies relies on their ability to cost-effectively create and deliver content across many different media and screens,” said Gabriele Di Piazza, managing director of Media and Entertainment for the Communications Sector at Microsoft Corp. “Making full use of technologies from Microsoft and its partners such as Origin Digital, media companies can minimize the steps in delivering a rewarding user experience, helping to ensure the maximum monetization of content.”
Origin Digital’s support of Microsoft’s cross-browser, cross-platform, and cross-device Silverlight plug-in provides the .NET development community with exciting new capabilities for publishing digital content through Odaptor. Utilizing Odaptor’s tools, users can manage, convert, and deliver their digital content to target formats and locations, and then use the powerful web tools in Silverlight to customize the viewer experience.
