AlwaysOn, the participatory media network, has selected Kaltura to power video on their newly designed site. The site will be launching on March 1st – you can take a sneak peek and see the new AO TV powered by Kaltura here: http://www.alwayson-network.com/relaunch/
"It was clear to us that video would be a big part of our new website. We were looking for a robust video platform that would enable us to handle dynamic rich-media content and provide our users participatory and collaborative features. Kaltura's platform was a perfect fit, and its integration was both seamless and cost-effective," said Tony Perkins, founder & editor of AlwaysOn. "AlwaysOn prides itself on discovering and promoting innovative companies. In Kaltura the discovery was twofold – we found a tremendous company with outstanding technology and a truly disruptive vision, and in the process we also found the right solution for our own site."
The AlwaysOn Network is transforming the media business by providing an open and participatory editorial environment that captures its readers' best thinking, and a social network where they can discover, connect and share content. In addition to reading the latest news and comments in the blog network, readers can view footage from AlwaysOn conferences, insider interviews with industry leaders, and additional relevant videos.
"We are delighted to be working with AlwaysOn who shares with us an appreciation for user engagement, participation, and collaboration" said Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura Chairman and CEO. "It is a special honor to be embraced as the best-breed solution by such luminaries. With over twenty thousand sites using our tools and hundreds more joining every day, we are well under way to bringing forth an open source revolution to the online video space.”
