Silverchair and Cadmore Media Launch Enhanced Video and Transcript Site for Platform Strategies Content

(Charlottesville, VA and Bethesda, MD) February 12, 2020 – Silverchair and Cadmore Media announced today the launch of a dedicated site hosting the video content for Platform Strategies, Silverchair’s industry conference exploring the intersection of business strategy and technology:

Cadmore Media is the exclusive sponsor of the Platform Strategies media library, which features over 15 hours of premium video content, complete with full, searchable, interactive, and downloadable transcripts. Embeds and bookmarks of videos, clips, or playlists can be saved and shared to continue the key conversations started at past Platform Strategies events.

Cadmore’s vision is to help scholarly and professional organizations publish media content in the same expert way as would be true for journals and books; with DOIs, integration with library discovery, SEO, citations, descriptive metadata, chapters and segments, to name but a few, and all done in an accessible way to WCAG 2.0 guideline standards. As a Silverchair Universe partner, Cadmore Media provides a deep integration of video and audio research material, conference sessions, podcasts, and other visually and orally rich content with the more traditional parts of the scientific record on the Silverchair Platform.

“Cadmore Media’s streaming media player, platform, and service offering is best in class, so they were the clear choice to host and distribute Platform Strategies video content,” said Will Schweitzer, SVP, Product Management, Silverchair. “Cadmore’s advanced captioning and transcription services add tremendous value not only for attendees looking to revisit their favorite sessions, but also for those new to the content, making it easy for users to search, browse, and share clips of key content from the event.”

“We are delighted to be the exclusive media sponsor for Platform Strategies, with its wide-ranging coverage of topics of importance to the scholarly publishing community”, said Violaine Iglesias, Cadmore Media’s CEO & Co-founder. “By adding transcript search we have made the conference recordings consumable in a much more time-efficient way than has been formerly available – perfect for the extremely time-poor professionals who need to see this important content.”

Platform Strategies 2020 will be held September 23 & 24 at the New York Academy of Sciences in New York City. Registration will open in Spring 2020 – contact to be informed of updates.
