Attention Video Manager

is the best On-Premises tool if you want to work efficiently with video and audio in Cumulus


Attention Video Manager

Is the complete solution for automated video and audio processing including streaming to all kinds of devices using Canto Cumulus.

Any video or audio file can be prepared to be played using Canto Cumulus Sites, Portals, WebClient or Attention Web Platform. There is no plugin like Flash are necessary in the browser to play a video which makes it compatible to almost all devices available.

The video player can also be embedded into any web-page, for example produced by a CMS, using a really simple API. In addition, each video file optionally can be provided in multiple quality levels to accommodate different bandwidths available for consuming users.

This gives you the power to support high bandwidth desktop users but also small bandwidth mobile devices without having to think about it. The provided player provides a control for the end user to select the appropriate quality level.

When using WebClient the Attention Video Solution also supports clip markers which allows one to jump to specific parts of a video, for example the interesting situations in a football match or certain speakers in a longer discussion and these clips can also be discussed by users. Given enough permissions a user can also download that exact segment of a video file.

This download functionality also supports the different quality levels a video might have. After the initial setup these features do work automatically and do not require the manual work of an administrator or (cataloging) user.

Virtual any media file can be processed by the Attention Video Manager to provide a web-compatible streamable version. For video files there are four different quality levels offered, ranging from an MP4 with 360p resolution up to high quality MP4 with 1080p resolution.

This enables you to stream to all kinds of devices, small handhelds with low bandwidth and high-end devices supporting high resolution videos. When using the provided media player, the end user can switch between the different quality levels on the fly.

Audio files should always be converted into the two different formats MP3 and OGG which have the same quality but each of these formats is only supported by some of the available browsers and end devices. To support all browsers, it’s recommended to always provide both MP3 and OGG at the same time.


Chapters (Time Segments)

User with permission to create user comments can create a time-segment comment in Sites or WebClient. Such a comment consists of a headline, a longer description text and a start time and duration for the media file.

Such a comment can be used to mark specific segments of a video which might be of special interest for a consuming user. For example, you could mark the interesting events in a sports game or a specific speaker talking in a longer discussion. If the logged in user has permission to create comment replies, it’s possible to reply to such a time-segment comment. This gives users a possibility to provide feedback for your selected segments or the entire video.
