Copyright, Fair Use & TEACH Act Media Management Tools

Copyright compliance can be tricky for institutions to understand and manage. Traditional media copyright regulations are not the same as those for digital media, and often staff need help to keep their plethora of media formats in compliance. MediaCAST's copyright management tools are their ally. These tools help them protect, secure, distribute, report and license video, audio, eBooks, third party content, user-generated content, electronic whiteboard files and many other formats.

MediaCAST also comes with built-in settings to help you set and manage restrictions on individual media titles. It supports industry-standard Digital Rights Management (DRM) for securing content to prevent unauthorized viewing, copying and distribution. The e-commerce tools let institutions share and collect on their user-generated content. With MediaCAST Cloud, colleges and universities can share digital content with other institutions around the world and place pay-per-view or pay-per-license conditions on their created content.


MediaCAST Makes It Easy To Stay In Compliance

MediaEncoders can broadcast live streams or publish them through a Media Appliance. This is advantageous because the MediaEncoder will not require a public IP address when live broadcasting over the Internet or through a firewall. This also provides limitless scalability in concurrent viewing especially when unicast is needed for Internet broadcasting of live events. The MediaCAST system supports both unicast and multicast live streaming video delivery and unicast on-demand video delivery.

If your organization is required to meet the Federal mandate of Section 508 you must have a solution for capture and display of closed captioning information for the deaf and hearing impaired. MediaCAST MediaEncoders and peripheral equipment can be configured to achieve this in several ways. If the source media does not include closed-captioning (as in internally created content) MediaCAST Caption™ is a Web-enabled tool allowing clients to create a synchronized transcript of the video or audio media.
