DCU

Dublin City University is ranked globally in the top 50 under 50.  It’s an innovative campus where they are not fearful in taking on new challenges assignments.

The Challenge:

The president of DCU is dynamic. His message as an educator is to push the boundaries and use the latest technologies to make the point.  One of the major changes over the past decade has been in the way that students in their late teens and early 20s use video to communicate. Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube – there are many places that students live and the President’s office made the decision that they needed to be there as well. For the Corporate Communications department, that meant learning how to create social video.

The Solution:

Overcast’s Video-Content-as-a-Service Platform was implemented for 3 workflows:

  • as a digital asset management and archive system to manage everything from video to images and documents
  • as a workflow tool to be able to transcode and reformat the content for distribution on the social platforms
  • as a review and approvals solution so that the President could manage make timely suggestions on his smartphone while out of the office

The Result:

As there was nothing to install and nothing to download (it’s all browser based) the IT department gave the go-ahead to implement the new system immediately.

Being able to get up and running in minutes allowed the small team to transfer their content immediately and start planning for the next shoot.

The resulting time savings meant the team were no longer under pressure to meet deadlines and actually had extra time to produce more communications for the president.

Video Content-as-a-Service (VCaaS): The Key To Digital Video Transformation

Businesses need to keep changing and innovating in order to be competitive. Such transformation in the digital age involves the integration of digital technologies into all areas of an enterprise, fundamentally changing how that business works.

Video is one such fundamental: it provides many opportunities to improve how you communicate internally with staff and externally with partners and clients. But, even with the democratization of video, it’s still expensive and time-consuming. So how can you future-proof your processes while enabling both speed and scale?

Video Content-as-a-Service (VCaaS): Manage Video Content Better

In 2018, the global Enterprise Video market size was US$3.68 billion and it is expected to reach US$10.4 billion by the end of 2025 (MarketWatch). Staggering, eh?

When teams in an organisation produce video content (and it really doesn’t matter how much), they need to be able to easily access it, re-use it, collaborate on it, and share it on various platforms in different formats. But video content is complex so existing content management systems don’t cope with it well and can be very problematic when you want to scale your operations.
