Client Profiles: Portal Video

We have been working with the PortalVideo group since December 2000.

PortalVideo the company got it's start providing a video interview production service in use by high and low profile firms in the private equity industry. Development of the workflow for internal use evolved into a plan for providing these unique and highly efficient collaborative tools as a hosted service.

The PortalVideo system provides an entirely new way of creating an interview-based rough cut using an online workflow. Starting with recording your video, the basic workflow steps include:

  • Encoding
  • Transcription
  • Rough Cutting
  • Review & Approval
  • Exporting
  • Workflow

Initial projects for PortalVideo involved consulting on database design with the FileMaker Pro system and the web access to this data using a CDML based portal. Technologies involved WebSTAR 4 web server running under Mac OS 9.2.1, FileMaker Pro, and Mac OS X Server based QuickTime Streaming Server.

In 2005, we developed the base protocol for a new standalone version of the PortalVideo system being prototyped for broader development as the hosted PortalVideo service.

We currently provide server management and overall application deployment consulting services for the PortalVideo system
