The Opencast community is a collaboration of individuals, higher education institutions and organizations working together to explore, develop, define and document best practices and technologies for management of audiovisual content in academia.

Opencast is an open source lecture capture and video management system which allows institutions to capture, process, manage and distribute video assets on a large scale. It plays with relevant academic systems and services and provides flexibility to meet the diversity of video management requirements we see today.
