We currently lease a server, we use Windows Media Server for our Bible sessions (video stream); due to the recent increase of other video solutions that provide better browser support, we are considering other alternatives.
We're looking for a long time professional relantionship with a developer who can guide us on choosing the right platform, install the server requirements, install the streaming software, configure and train us with a video streaming server.
Since we're a non-profit organization, we're considering the following:
**a)** Kaltura: the server requirements and documentation is here:
<[url removed, login to view]>
there are 5 steps to be completed which are described in detail on the url above.
Kaltura provides other functionality which we're interested, but, maybe the developer can recommend a similar solution to meet our business needs; these are:
- Send live video stream to server
- Ability to broadcast live events at good video quality from our website (i.e. wordpress)
- Ability to support on-demand video
- Ability to have users chat while and during the live event (this is nice to have)
Note: we can lease another server and as the data center to install specific server requirements to help you on the OS server requirements.
Developer should advice which software to use if Kaltura is not the right way to proceed; please be prepared to show some samples of previous implementations.
Developer would guide us thru the process of:
a) Choose the video software to be used
b) Install the server requirments i.e. OS, etc.
c) Intall the streaming software and configure on the server i.e. Kaltura
c) Help us to perform real time tests
d) Provide training so we're aware of the day to day tasks to run live video sessions i.e. how to start, stop, how to handle on-demand, how to record to it's used for on-demand option.
e) Documents steps above so we have it in writing (this is optional as we can do this)
We have other projects related to this one; we're looking for a professional who has prior experience.
We do NOT want to work with developers **who have not experience** on this particular requirements.
