Kaltura MediaSpace™ Video Portal

What is MediaSpace?

Build your own private YouTube™ with Kaltura MediaSpace™ Video Portal, the market-leading rich media portal for every use-case.

With the MediaSpace Video Portal, users can securely create, upload, share, search, browse, and watch live and on demand videos, presentations, webcasts, and other rich media content, anytime, anywhere. MediaSpace provides a superb cross-device user experience, unmatched user engagement capabilities, and powerful control and governance tools. 

MediaSpace encourages community, collaboration, learning, and social activities through the power of online video.

MediaSpace revolutionizes this process by enabling democratization of media creation and sharing with many contributors, moderators, and viewers in a multitude of channels.
