What makes it Innovative?

Altus is the only enterprise media platform that turns video into searchable data so that your web conferences, videos, or conference calls can be used just like your document library. Merely search for the word you are looking for in your video library and vSearch gets you to the exact sentence you need to find what you are looking for.

By synchronizing transcripts with slides, users have easy access to expert knowledge. Every spoken word is placed into the notes section of the slide so that users can speak as experts.

Altus vSearch enables companies to easily capture and share expert knowledge throughout the extended enterprise to reduce costs, increase productivity, and shorten time to revenue. Altus vSearch combines digitally recorded video with synchronized slides and scrolling transcripts, enabling users to see and hear the content being presented. Every word spoken and every word in the slides and notes become searchable data. Using familiar search functionality, users can find just the knowledge they need - at the presentation, topic or sentence level, eliminating time lost looking for knowledge.

Capture and Share Corporate Content
The vast majority of corporate content is conveyed verbally—in meetings, web conferences, or on conference calls. By digitally capturing these events and synchronizing the spoken word with video and PowerPoint slides, organizations have unparalleled on-demand access to corporate knowledge.

Search for Exactly What you Need
By IDC’s estimates, organizations spend 20% of their payroll looking for knowledge. And 50% of the time, they don’t find what they are looking for. Altus vSearch is the first end-to-end solution that offers full text search and playback of any spoken word with 99% accuracy, dramatically reducing the time users spend looking for knowledge.

Whether your device is a computer or mobile device, Altus vSearch delivers the content you need. Watch any video on-demand. Download courses as mp3 audio or mp4 video to any mobile device. Or, use RSS to automatically receive updates as they are posted or updated. PowerPoint slides with embedded transcripts eliminate the guesswork when presenting since the speaker’s exact words are in the notes section for every slide.

On Demand Access
With Altus vSearch, presentations become a valuable and reusable corporate asset. Users need only to search for the snippet of information they want and view on demand or download the audio, video, or PowerPoint presentation that meets their current interest.

Altus vSearch provides a complete solution for corporate knowledge sharing and on-demand access down to the point of interest.

Targeted Users: Any company looking to make the breadth of its corporate intellectual property easily available to its workforce and partners.
