The new partnership brings SPIE’s 55,000+ video assets to Cadmore’s streaming platform

BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA – SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, has announced Cadmore Media as its new streaming media partner.

SPIE was an early adopter of multimedia in academic publishing and began recording conference presentations for dissemination in 2012. The SPIE Digital Library, the world’s largest collection of optics and photonics applied research, contains more than 52,000 conference-presentation recordings.

These conference recordings along with video interviews, promotional content, and online-course offerings will now be hosted and streamed utilizing Cadmore Media’s industry-standard suite of services. Cadmore’s centralized management portal offers scalable API-based workflows for loading, tagging, enriching, transcribing, segmenting, and streaming SPIE’s media content.

“SPIE has been watching Cadmore’s growth with interest over the past few years,” noted SPIE CTO Scott Ritchey. “We are confident that Cadmore’s academic publishing-specific approach will allow us to achieve more with our streaming media over the coming years, and we look forward to growing our library of content with them.”

“SPIE has been a trailblazer in scholarly and professional media,” said Cadmore Media CEO and Co-Founder Violaine Iglesias. “We are delighted that they have chosen Cadmore as their partner to host such a major collection of video assets. We look forward to helping SPIE take their media content strategy even further in the future.”
