The Ensemble Video Portal enables users to create their own Campus or Corporate YouTube™ so they can deliver private and public media content. Users can create, upload, share, search, browse, comment, rate and watch live and on demand videos, video presentations, screencasts, and other rich media content. The Portal is responsive and provides excellent user experiences on many devices. Finally, the Portal can fully customized to meet the branding and communication needs of Campus or Corporate customers. To see it in action visit our demo portal.

You can edit the color of the navigation bar, the header, the links, the footer on top of many more useful options. This will enable designers to keep things consistent with their brand and styles.
The Ensemble Video Portal now supports adding multiple playlists (which we call channels in the portal) from multiple organizations and media libraries to an individual portal. Additionally, institutional administrators can add security restrictions to channels. For example, a user that is in the “Staff” LDAP group would log into the portal and see the channels they are allowed to see based on their identity. This feature will be great for business, universities and organizations who want to delivered customizable public and private content to their audience.
