"The live event manager gives me all the tools I need to run live broadcasts by myself, while at the same time conducting the interviews with my guests. All the while, a recording of the livestream is being stored in the Clevercast cloud. This permits our online subscribers to immediately catch up via video on demand. The statistics dashboard provides me with realtime feedback on viewers numbers and behaviour."

Dirk Selleslagh, video producer and journalist De Tijd

Features

Uploading video

Uploading new content to Clevercast is fast and intuitive, and can be performed through a drag&drop web interface, or alternatively over FTP. After processing, you (and other team members) will receive an email notification, inviting you to further edit and then publish the video.

Interactive HTML5 player

Unlike YouTube or Vimeo, Clevercast offers exhaustive control over your video player. You can style the player even in the smallest details, making sure it maintains the outlook of your website and reflects your corporate identity.

The same goes for the behaviour of the player: settings such as autoplay, loop, buffer size and sharing options can be tweaked to match your requirements.

With interactive call-to-actions you connect with your audience and personalize the viewing experience. Ask viewers to provide feedback, or invite them to watch other related content based on their own preferences.

Thumbnail creation

After uploading your video a series of snapshots will be extracted from the video, which can later be used in thumbnail galleries and as background image for the player. Not satisfied with the automatically generated thumbnails? Use the manual thumbnail generator to select the exact image you need.

Online video recording

Since your video is intended to be distributed online, it makes sense to record it directly in your video cloud and avoid prolonged uploads, especially with longer video. This can be anything from a simple webcam, a screencast on your laptop, your mobile phone’s camera to a professional multi-camera production. After recording we provide you with all the tools you need to clean up the recording, add video bumpers with your logo before or after the main movie, and add subtitles and textual overlays.

Video heatmaps

Video heatmaps are a powerful visual representation of the viewing behaviour of your website visitors. By dragging your mouse pointer over the video you see exactly which parts of the video are watched more than others, which parts do not seem to engage viewers, and which parts are watched more than once, indicating particular customer interest. Heatmaps are presented both as aggregate data as well as on the individual level with an approximation of the geographical location of the viewer.

And more ...

Smart playlists

By adding tags to your video you can group related videos in smart playlists which will update automatically whenever you upload or record a new video. This way, viewers are encouraged to consume more videos and stay up-to-date with fresh content.

Teaser extraction

A single source video may serve multiple purposes. By extracting short quotes or highlights from existing videos and publishing them to your social media channels, you can enhance visibility and generate extra inbound traffic.

White & blacklisting

Sometimes video is not intended for everyone. Clevercast allows you to stay firmly in control of your video content by defining viewing permissions based on IP address, country or website domain.

Premium features

Private video sharing

For video that needs be securely shared within the organization we have developed a temporary URL application, which ensures video cannot be downloaded nor shared with outsiders. Video URL’s expire after a limited period of time, and are only accessible with a secret passphrase only known by your sharing application or mobile app. It’s perfectly suited for teams that need to review and comment on video, and for distributing video containing delicate information that should not be publicly accessible.

Cloud archiving

New on-demand videos can be automatically archived in the cloud, offering you a secure, durable, and low-cost manner to create a long-term backup of your video sources (or high quality encodings). Archived videos can be retrieved at all times through a URL with temporary validity, generated by Clevercast. Currently, Amazon S3 and Glacier are supported as cloud archiving solutions. Furthermore, it is also possible to export your media files to your own archive server via FTP.

Multilingual video and live streaming

Clevercast is perfectly suited for multi-language streaming to global audiences. The live management dashboard makes it easy to broadcast and test live video with any number of audio languages. The multilingual broadcast can be automatically recorded online and converted to video on-demand. Both the live and on-demand video will be streamed in multiple resolutions, allowing our Clevercast player to render them optimally, with few overhead and short page loads. The player can be integrated and shared on any website by simply copying its embed code, and allows viewers to select their preferred language.

Advanced integrations and API's

Our comprehensive REST API’s allow you to thoroughly integrate with the Clevercast platform. They provide programmable access to all your video content and metadata, live events and playlists, so you can independently extend every core platform feature. The application also lets you configure the necessary webhooks and callbacks, for example to get notified every time a video item is updated.

Our Player API allows you to create customized player experiences and player behavior. Clevercast player supports video player customization via CSS through standard JavaScript. We also provide a fully documented JavaScript library with methods and events to let you extend the functionality of your video player experience.
