Currently in development and scheduled for release January 25, 2019, aviary is the result of a collaboration between AVP and the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies from Yale University Libraries. aviary will be launched as a subscription service that brings enhanced search and navigation to audiovisual content. aviary, as a lightweight platform, can integrate with your existing workflows to provide access to your audiovisual assets through time-stamped transcripts, indexes, and annotations.

As a multi-tenant platform, aviary provides cross-organizational and cross-collection search to allow users to find your assets and connect with content from other institutions. aviary integrates with existing online streaming platforms such as Vimeo, Kaltura, YouTube, SoundCloud, Avalon, and Internet Archive, as well as provides the ability to upload media files directly to aviary if you are not using an online streaming platform already.

Join us on January 25th, 2019, to celebrate the launch of aviary at Sterling Memorial Library at Yale University. This event, co-sponsored by AVP and the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies at Yale University Libraries, will introduce and demonstrate the features of this new approach to audiovisual asset management and discovery.
