Aviary is the result of a collaboration between AVP and the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies. 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. aviary also provides the ability to upload OHMS XML records for direct import of media, description, transcripts, and indexes.

The Aviary platform website will be available shortly to the public!
