Yasar University has chosen Metus Solutions
Yasar University's (which is a private university in Izmir / Turkey and it has been providing higher education since 2001) Media Department has begun the process of installing a robust Media Archiving System to support multiple courses.
Yasar University Media Center creates introductory films and social media videos, recording events such as concerts, ceremonies and conferences in XDCAM formats. Moving the archive that goes back to 2008 to cloud with Metus MAM has changed their archive into a well-ordered, safe and easily accessible resource. The Art, Media and Communication department's video projects and stock footage are managed by the MAM system. The system is used by 20 lecturers and 300 students and both level of users can upload & download files.
Users are fetched from Active Directory. Regarding students can enter web interface with their Yasar University ID & password, reach desired video, audio and image archive.
The system is required to archive over 2,000 hours of video and the university's entire image archive in the first phase. Metus MAM is being used in Media Center in a daily workflow for archiving, editing media like video, audio and photographs and sharing content with viewers.
The manager of the Media Department, Cenk Sonmez, said;
"Metus has been actively used in our university since beginning of 2015. It is mostly being used for editing media content for class projects, project delivery by students, examinations, editing and archiving projects by academics. Metus MAM executes as a bridge between students and staff and workforce benefits."
