The DEVOS physical server is available in small, medium, and large capacity. Redundant power, and both SSD and RAID storage provide for maximum reliability.

Want to use your hardware?  The DEVOS system can be installed on your server or Virtual Machine too.

DVExpress is a ready-to-go minimal system, ideal for smaller organizations that don’t need the full DEVOS sophistication but with most of the same features.  DVExpress even includes four built-in encoder channels.

Video On Demand

Instantly create your content libraries and organize it as you wish. Give different people or groups access to different libraries. Training, education, information, and other videos are easily organized by searchable titles, authors, tags, channels, and are even searchable by their captions.

Automatic Encoding

Upload videos that you recorded with Streamsie®, Mantis™, Spider™, or DV-StreamEngine™, or virtually any of your existing video.  DEVOS automatically transcodes your legacy Windows Media, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and other formats.  Upgrading from a legacy video system?  No problem, you won’t lose your content.

Live Streaming for Events, Sports and Graduation
Add Closed Captioning

Artificial Intelligence and Captioning

Using  the latest AI technology, your recorded or uploaded videos can be automatically captioned, not only for ADA and ethical needs, but to enable more powerful search.  And we partner with professional caption services too, allowing you to automatically create perfect captions for any video.

Billion Video Library

Need a video on about particular subject? Find it online and import it from YouTube, Vimeo, and others. Why pay for an expensive content subscription when you can get great content for free? DEVOS video measures and controls access to these videos the same as video you upload.

Digital Signage

Display news and information in lobbies, hallway intersections, or even in remote locations.  Its all controlled and managed by your DEVOS system.  And at a touch of a button, one, some, or all of your signs can switch to show a Priority Alert.

Just plug in a SignStick, or use a DEVOS signage web page, and your have unlimited Digital Signage for the mere mortal.  Simple, template-drive signage includes live video, video-on-demand, even Google Slides!  Select a template, add your videos and times, and away you go.

Devos Channels

Organization

Create an unlimited number of content collections. Your “Science Channel” shows science videos. Your “Customer Channel” shows videos for your customers.  Each collection has its own security, so your collections are safe from prying eyes.  Go ahead, create as many channels as you wish.

Search

With 100’s or 1,000’s of live and on-demand videos, you want to be able to quickly find what you need. The DEVOS provides a powerful deep search, allowing you to quickly find a video not only by its title, category, date, tags, or author, but by the closed captioning text. Remember that video where the boss said “pay raise”? Now you can find it!

Priority Alert

Priority alert is great for showing important news and information at anytime, like live all hands events and morning announcements.

When there is an emergency, or when you want to alert one, some, or all users, select DEVOS Priority Alert.  The alert will interrupt selected Digital Signage displays and will open on desktops without user action.  Show a message, a live video stream, a recorded video, or a web page for the duration of the alert. 

SMS Text Messages

While Priority Alert can also send SMS text messages with a link to your alert, any live or on-demand video can optionally be transmitted instantly to anyone with a Smartphone. 

Priority Alert to All Screens and Devices

Multiview- Skills Assessment & More

With multiple cameras aimed at a training, simulation, or “focus group” environment, DEVOS allows you to show up to four simultaneous views. Each viewer can adjust their view at will without affecting others. And when you record this Multiview video, the videos play back in synchronism. Now you can fully capture the event, whether multiple cameras or video feeds from instrument displays, etc.

360 Business

360 Video

Using our Insta360 camera (or other compatible cameras), stream live video with amazing 360 degree capture.  The viewer can look around and decide what interests them.  Record the 360 video and your on-demand video has fully captured the experience.

Scheduling

Want to automatically record the lecture in room 101 every weekday at 9AM?  Want to turn the power off on all TV’s every afternoon at 5PM? 

DEVOS built-in scheduling system controls Discover Video encoders directly, and it can schedule the recording of 3rd party streams too.  Internet-of-Things (IoT) control of virtually anything via IP or IR control give you the scheduling control you need in a comprehensive enterprise video platform.

Streams Do Come True with StreamPump®

Your IT staff may be concerned about bandwidth use, thinking that video streaming will swamp the network. Not to worry.

Thanks to modern encoding technology the streaming rates are half what they used to be and are very modest by today’s standards.  DEVOS does not depend on IP multicast, but it can use it if desired. 

For remote locations, other building, branch offices, etc., simply place an economical StreamPump and it acts as a bandwidth amplifier for your network.  Viewers in those locations actually receive the live and VoD content from the StreamPump near to them, vastly reducing bandwidth usage on valuable network resources.

Accounts

Every DEVOS user can have an account with different levels of privileges.  The system owner can manage DEVOS accounts directly or via Active Directory integration.  When you stream or upload a video, it belongs to you and other users cannot disturb your content unless you allow them. 

You can even make someone a delegate to manage your content.  Or you can create a community of users that can share and manage community content. 

World Wide Audience

DEVOS can attach to the Discover Video Arcus™ system when you want to reach a truly large Internet audience and your premises system does not have the bandwidth capacity.

Testing and Measurement

DEVOS makes it easy to embed questions in any video and to measure the answers.  While this allows you to easily “grade” viewer performance, it also allows you to verify an assigned video is actually watched.  And the DEVOS Learning Path feature allows you to assemble videos, images, documents, and questions to create a full training course, complete with grades and achievement result reports.
