NORDUnet (www.nordu.net), a Nordic collaboration between the National research and education networks in the Nordic countries, and Kaltura, the leading video technology platform (www.kaltura.com), whose system is deployed in hundreds of global educational institutions, announced today that the organizations have entered a strategic partnership to bring powerful, local video solutions to the Nordic NRENs.
Kaltura continues to expand its global partnerships with global National Research and Education Networks (NRENs). In addition to existing relationships with SURFmarket (the Netherlands), Internet2 (USA), and SUNET (Sweden), Kaltura is now launching this new Strategic Partnership with NORDUnet.
NORDUnet will host Kaltura’s On-Premise video platform locally in their hosting centres in Denmark, connected directly to the NORDUnet network infrastructure, providing the Nordic NREN community with unrestricted and unlimited network capacity to the service.
“We are excited to partner with the one of world’s leaders in education video solutions and we look forward to seeing how quickly and easily institutions in initially the Danish NREN DeIC (www.deic.dk) will embrace this new offering,” commented Jørgen Qvist CO&SDO from NORDUnet.
Kaltura will be exhibiting at the NORDUnet conference during September 23-25 September in Uppsala, Sweden where it will be demonstrating its education video solutions, including online video extensions for all leading Learning Management Systems, Content Management Systems, as well as its Kaltura MediaSpace (‘CampusTube’) social video portal, and a software-based lecture and personal capture solution called Kaltura CaptureSpace.
“We are delighted to rapidly expand our reach into the Nordics via a strong local partnership with NORDUnet,” said Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura Co-founder, Chairman and CEO. “There is no limit to the potential of video in education, video is a must-have for any educational institution looking to attract and retain today’s YouTube generation of students.”
