Library Video Company Releases SAFARI Montage WAN Manager - A Digital Media Management Solution for School Districts

Philadelphia, PA (October 3, 2006) - Library Video Company announced last week at the National Media Market Conference in Phoenix, AZ, the release of SAFARI Montage WAN Manager — the only video-on-demand system for school districts and Regional Media Centers (RMCs) that can handle true Digital Media Management over a Wide Area Network (WAN). This exceptional software centralizes all video-on-demand functions and utilizes a WAN to deliver and manage digital media to every school – regardless of each school’s bandwidth. It is the only complete video-on-demand solution comprised of premier content, flexible software and powerful hardware that is designed to be centrally housed and managed by the district.

Many school districts are already using the award-winning SAFARI Montage WAN Manager digital delivery solution:

- Chicago Public Schools, Chicago, IL
- Plano ISD, TX
- USD 305, Salina, KS
- San Diego County, San Diego, CA
- LaCrosse SD, La Crosse, WI
- Southwest ISD, San Antonio, TX
- White Settlement School District, White Settlement, TX
- McKinney ISD, McKinney, TX
- New York Institute of Technology, NY
- Baldwin Park School District, CA
- San Joaquin School District, CA
- Forsyth ISD, Forsyth, GA

SAFARI Montage WAN Manager provides the unique ability to store, manage and access digital video assets from one central location. In addition to the licensed video packages included in SAFARI Montage, districts can create, upload, store, disseminate and manage their own digital video (created by a teacher, district or RMC personnel), such as teacher training videos (professional development), other licensed programs, superintendent speeches, student-created projects, original school video, ancillary support documents and broadcast recordings.

“The days of duplicating videotapes at a school district are numbered. Districts and RMCs no longer need to shuttle video tapes to schools since this process can be accomplished more efficiently via digital video delivery. Districts simply need to ensure that they have the rights to do so,” said Andrew Schlessinger, CEO of Library Video Company.

SAFARI Montage WAN Manager provides all of the tools needed to meet the particular requirements of the school district, including the management of still imagery such as maps, photos and graphics, audio recordings, text files such as teacher’s guides, lesson plans and more.
