FCCN Unity Service launches a new HTML5 video editor that replaces the previous flash version and introduces new features.
With the launch of the new video editor, it becomes possible for Educast users to edit videos directly in the browser, without having to install proprietary software. On its website, Educast also highlights that this solution "offers a set of new features, in a more flexible and intuitive environment" .
In addition to the aforementioned use of standard web technologies and a new layout for presenting content, the new Educast editor allows, for example, customizing video metadata (title, subtitle, presenter, date, location), editing videos with one or two sources simultaneously (video and slides) and creating chapters for key moments, as well as customizing branding (header image and cover image).
The development of the new Educast video editor started with the collaboration of a group of students from the Information Systems master's degree from the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança. This work was part of a partnership with the institution and framed within the curricular assessment of the subjects "development of multimedia applications" and "information systems architecture". The completion of the work, implementation and final integration in the service was carried out internally by the FCCN Unit team.
