CASE STUDY: Temple University
Temple University in Philadelphia relies on its Computer Services Department for most IT needs, from the telecommunications network to complex web applications.
The Web and Media Services group manages all video and streaming media services. Viral M. Mehta, Assistant Director for the group, oversees video production and streaming for curriculum and public content for Temple University.
Over the last five years, Mehta’s team has met growing demand for curriculum and public event content by using Ensemble Video for its speed, flexibility and easy access.
“Five years ago, we shot, produced, and edited video manually, and then encoded and uploaded via SFTP to our streaming servers,” said Mehta. “We quickly saw the need for a platform to automate the process and efficiently serve our non-technical administrative and faculty users.”
