What Is Ensemble Video?

Categories: Instructional Video

Ensemble is Clemson's Enterprise video hosting solution. Ensemble is a video content management system that allows employees to upload video files to the web and easily share them with other departments on campus as well as guests. Ensemble supports multiple media formats and provides flexible video content publishing and sharing.

Additional Information

  • Ensemble is going away? Why?

    Yes. Panopto acquired Ensemble in 2021 and decided they would not continue to support Ensemble. With this news, Clemson Online and CCIT completed a procurement process in which several vendors submitted proposals explaining how their solution would make for an excellent replacement. At the end of this process, Kaltura was chosen.

    Kaltura offers several features that Ensemble did not have, including advanced video editing, multi-stream playback (i.e. audiences can choose whether the PowerPoint or the speaker should occupy the largest part of their screen at any moment), built-in recording capabilities, video library organization, and smarter search features. We are excited to see how these new features will enhance the learning experience.

    Ensemble will be available at Clemson through Fall 2022, and communications will be coming out soon about the migration timeline.

  • What will happen to my Ensemble videos? Should I copy them to Kaltura?

    Ensemble videos are currently being automatically migrated to the Kaltura system.

    Please do not try to manually migrate videos into Kaltura as it will create duplicate videos in your library when the migration takes place.

    More information on the migration will appear on the Kaltura page.

  • How can employees get personalized training on Kaltura?

    Personalized training is currently unavailable, but will be added to Clemson Online's Booking offering which is linked to Clemson Online's Events page. Additional training opportunities will also appear in both places.

    Clemson Online offers an Instructor-led training option for employees. Visit the Clemson Online Events page and schedule a Clemson Online Booking. You may have to click the "Show More Services" button to find this session topic.

  • Can I organize my videos into folders or playlists?

    It is possible to organize videos into Playlists, but the Playlists will not change the appearance of your library or improve your ability to locate videos within your Library.

  • Can I use the Ensemble Quizzing feature?

    If you plan to use Ensemble's Quizzing feature, please be aware that students with visual and/or mobility impairments may struggle to use it efficiently and may require an alternate means of completing these quizzes (such as a Canvas quiz with the Ensemble video or clips embedded). You may also want to prepare a practice quiz so that students can familiarize themselves with the interface and troubleshoot as needed prior to having to use it to earn a grade.
