== Abstract ==

[http://corp.kaltura.com Kaltura] (also see 
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaltura its Wikipedia entry]) allows publishers 
of all sizes to easily, quickly, and cost effectively enhance their web site 
with video and interactive rich-media functionalities, including video 
management, searching, uploading, importing, editing, annotating, remixing, 
sharing, and advertising.

Unlike the alternative proprietary solutions, Kaltura’s platform is completely 
flexible, extensible and free! Web publishers, value-added-resellers, and 
integrators use our software development kit to customise a unique rich media 
experience that fits their specific purposes, and seamlessly integrates with 
many popular content management systems. Moreover, Kaltura’s reference 
implementations and growing library of applications, extensions and plug-ins 
allow publishers to select off the shelf solutions for rapid self-serve 
deployments that can be fully enabled within minutes. 

Visit [http://www.kaltura.org Kaltura.org] for the community site, forums and 
all the open source projects that are part of the Kaltura Platform.

=== In the lecture ===

* We will cover all major aspects of online video and why a platform to handle 
the various tasks is required.
* We will learn about ways to install the 
[http://www.kaltura.org/project/community_edition_video_platform Kaltura CE 
v2.x], and use it to deploy your own video website/RIA.
* There will be an open discussion about using and extending Kaltura for 
personal use, academic use and enterprise solutions for rich-media knowledge 
management.

This lecture is an open invitation to learn more, try out and become a part of 
this fast growing exciting open source solution.

God considered inflicting XSLT as the tenth plague of Egypt, but then
decided against it because he thought it would be too evil.
