Kaltura, the self-proclaimed “YouTube meets the Wiki” (previous coverage here and here ), has a video extension that lets its users start a collaborative video project by uploading video clips, photos, or audio tracks to its wiki. Users can then edit collaboratively using Kaltura’s browser-based video editor. Users can import their video creations into Kaltura’s library of legally remixable content, which is covered under a Creative Commons license.
MediaWiki’s users will have access not only to Kaltura videos but to the collaborative editing feature as well.
According to Kaltura CTO Shay David, Kaltura is also working towards supporting other publishing platforms, including other wiki software, blogs, and content management enviorments. He said we can expect announcements on this soon.
Kaltura has 20 employees and raised $2 million in venture backing from Avalon Partners. It is based in Tel Aviv and Manhattan.
