Fastnet Web Design & Video, a UK based web design & CMS company, has partnered with Kaltura, developer of the first open source online video platform. Fastnet will be reselling Kaltura’s SaaS (Software as a Service) video platform to UK companies, incorporating full end to end web video & CMS plug-ins for Joomla, Drupal, WordPress & Moodle. Fastnet selected Kaltura’s full video management platform because of the ease of use for uploading, managing, displaying, scheduling, editing and publishing its video content with full statistical analytics – all from the browser.
“Even though we have been using video for years, it’s great to partner with Kaltura to enhance our video offerings on-line for our clients” said Philip Locke of Fastnet “This will allow our clients to deliver engaging behind-the-scenes videos to their audience, using a one-stop-shop video SaaS solution”.
“We are delighted to partner with Fastnet and extend Kaltura’s reach even further to additional publishers in the UK,” said Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura Chairman and CEO. “Kaltura’s open strategy and open source technology allows resellers, integrators, developers, publishers and basically anyone to deploy our platform, customise it and even own it – it provides the most flexible solution on the market and for the lowest prices.”
