Ensemble

Ensemble Video   is a video content management and video sharing service used by the New York Six Consortium

What is Ensemble Video?

Skidmore College licenses Ensemble Video to create, edit and deliver streaming media for community needs both internally and externally to campus. Ensemble Video allows you to upload, organize, and share your videos from a centralized, password-protected repository. Videos can be easily shared with links via email or embedded in theSpring, WordPress and other web pages to be viewed by a public audience or by a private, Skidmore community-only audience.

Note: In order to use Ensemble Video, please contact LEDS to schedule a one-on-one training consultation. It will be an excellent and efficient use of your time to partner with a LEDS colleague prior in order to quckly learn about and grasp the many different capabilities and nuances of the software.
