Kaltura Exchange – The Power of the Crowd
The Kaltura Application Exchange is a virtual marketplace for publishers, developers, integrators and web shops to “trade” in video applications related to the Kaltura open source online video platform. The Exchange is geared towards saving time and money for those looking to expand upon the core Kaltura platform for their own specific use case, and on the flip side to allow developers to publish and potentially generate revenue from their own Kaltura-related contributions.
At Kaltura we believe that advanced video functionalities should be readily available and accessible to any publisher. The open-source approach accelerates adoption and spurs innovation. Using Kaltura’s foundations, publishers can rapidly and cost-effectively enable a multitude of highly-integrated solutions for a wide variety of use cases and verticals. Unlike the alternative proprietary, closed-source solutions, Kaltura’s platform is completely flexible, extendible and starts at the base price of zero. For publishers this means that they pay less, get more, and hit the market sooner. For developers it means that they get a stable base to build upon, allowing them to spend their time and resources on true innovation. This all comes together and manifests itself in the Kaltura Exchange.
Web publishers, Value-Added-Resellers, system integrators and developers can build upon the Kaltura platform and publish their applications to the community, and publishers can leverage the applications in the Exchange to customize their own unique rich-media experience to fit their specific purposes, and seamlessly integrate with many popular content management systems./p>
