Annese Notes Surge in Ensemble Video Education Sales Across New York’s Metro Region


Clifton Park, NY (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

Cisco projects that 833 days worth of video will cross the Internet every second in three short years. Additionally, Internet video will make up 54% of all online traffic by 2016. This surge in digital content may explain the rapid-fire growth of Annese & Associates video content management solution, Ensemble Video, particularly across its education base in the Metro New York region.

Annese, which has been reselling the online video management platform since its inception in 2007, was also an angel investor to the Syracuse University-born software which has since risen from tech start-up to industry player in the online video platform market, reporting over 200% revenue growth since 2010 and record expansion of its customer base. The company successfully deployed its software to close to 100 new organizations in 2012, with over 200 customers in higher education institutions, K-12 school districts, consortiums, and enterprise markets.

The K-12 market is especially ripe for a product like Ensemble as it enables classrooms and districts to seamlessly implement 21st century opportunities like distance learning, blended learning, flipped learning, and mobile learning. Ensemble Video has the power to transform the educational process in schools by ushering in a new model for teaching and learning that focuses on using video to engage, inform, and motivate students at their own pace through online learning, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, notes Scott Nadzan, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Ensemble.

Dutchess BOCES, Ulster BOCES, Eastern Suffolk BOCES, and Nassau BOCES are a few of Anneses most prominent Ensemble converts in the region. The Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) was one of the companys earliest adopters of the product and has been a strong proponent in helping like-institutions understand its appeal.

Ensemble Video enables LHRICs teachers to create video projects so students can easily submit video projects for coursework and tell a story through video. Kids have always wanted to tell a story. In the past they did it with crayons and paper and now they are doing it with video because its the technology; its a 21st century skill, said Sarah Martabano, Regional and Distance Education Coordinator at the RIC. The role of the Regional Information Center is to support districts in their use and acquisition of technology. Currently, 21 districts are signed up with Ensemble Video through the RIC.

Although free YouTube-like platforms are ideal for small-scale public sharing, they fall short for larger organizations and educational institutions that require more control and security.

With Video becoming more prominent in all aspects of everyday life and the proliferation of technology in todays society, organizations are constantly being challenged to find new ways to help break down traditional communication boundaries, notes Andy Enright, Annese Account Manager.

By implementing the Ensemble Video platform, our customers have enabled their organizations with a simple and cost-effective platform to share, secure, stream and archive videos with a few clicks of a mouse. We continue to see steady product sales growth throughout the region as Annese remains committed to providing our customers with innovative and cutting-edge solutions to help them remain at the forefront of modern technology.

Ensemble Video has just launched its new 3.5 version which includes features like uploading video from mobile devices, a restricted streaming module to secure content, adaptive bitrate streaming for delivery, and a YouTube feed.

Unique Education iPad App Launches in US for Grades K-12


(PRWEB) July 07, 2011

A Paris-based startup, eduPad, has designed a unique technology that enables anyone to publish collections of interactive exercises to tactile learning apps for iPad. eduPad provides simple ways to integrate existing educational activities into popular handheld devices via web interfaces and/or file transfers. The standardized process requires no development, no upfront costs, and its attractive business models range from technology licensing to revenue sharing.

The eduPad solution is currently available for iPad. Android, iPod Touch, and iPhone versions will be released soon and will be included in the basic platform for publishers.

Each eduPad module covers one subject for one school year. eduPad apps typically gather between 1,500 and 6,000 exercises, creating by far the largest educational database in the Apple App Store. The exercises are stored on a local database on the device, resulting in an app that doesnt require an Internet connection and can be used anywhere — especially in class. This independent functionality eliminates concerns over network issues, one of teachers most frequently cited and practiced reasons not to use IT technology in the classroom. Reference content is instead stored on cloud servers and synched with the apps on mobile devices in the background whenever an Internet connection is available, thus guaranteeing that the apps content is always up to date.

The eduPad solution includes advanced game dynamics and links to social networks, making the apps attractive and engaging to children and students.

eduPad has released 6 apps for iPad under its creative iTooch brand, available now in the App Store. “We’re thrilled with the feedback we’ve received so far, especially from children, says eduPad.com co-founder J
