Oulu, Finland-based University of Oulu (OU) and Oulu University of Applied Sciences (OAMK), has selected YuJa, Inc. to provide comprehensive video creation, hosting, and support services to serve a combined total of more than 16,000 students and over 3,700 teaching and research staff.
The university will benefit from automated production, processing, publishing and managing of video content, which will save time spent creating recordings and streamline processes systemwide. As part of the agreement, thousands of existing recordings will be migrated to YuJa’s Enterprise Video Platform to ensure compliance and for later use.
University staff and students currently record and view hundreds of thousands of hours of video each year, which includes live streaming and on demand content. The university had been producing and publishing lecture recordings and video materials using various other platforms, all of which required some level of manual work.
“We are excited to work with the University of Oulu and Oulu University of Applied Sciences to not only meet their video recording and hosting needs, but to help them expand their workflow automation, streamline efforts and add tools outside of their primary focus,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc.
