Ensemble Video Platform

What is Ensemble?

Ensemble enables users across our organization to share video and video content.  The online video platform streamlines video capture, video management and video publishing.  The Office of Information Technology Media Center maintains and administers Ensemble. User Guides via Ensemble Support.

  • Ensemble Video -  online video application, where users can upload, share, and manage video content.  This provides your students/audience with a powerful tool that can be used for review, to further supplement material covered in class, or to provide instruction that is entirely web-based.  Students have the ability to jump ahead or jump back to particular segments of video content. The recordings/videos can be viewed from any device with an Internet connection via an browser ( Chrome, Firefox, Safari). .
  • Ensemble Anthem - screen capture software application.  Users can easily record screen movements with audio, and/or record video from a web cam from their office. Anthem can be downloaded to users personal devices if needed. 
  • Ensemble Studio - easily capture lectures from classrooms. Use scheduled capture or ad hoc capture for recording class lectures. Can capture the display output from a PC, document camera, and/or a laptop as normally displayed and viewed on a projection screen. Professors can request automated recordings of lectures (classrooms containing capture appliance), post online via Blackboard where students can stream them on-demand.
