The Content Dashboard is a cloud-based content management hub which is the control center for all incoming and pre-existing content. Through its user-friendly interface, all content is previewed, managed, and published, quickly and easily, facilitating a seamless transition from the user capturing the footage to the end user watching it.
Decision-makers or senior members of staff can use the Content Dashboard to monitor all incoming footage, preview the content, give real-time direction and feedback to the users capturing the video out in the field via the audio talkback and text chat features. Ultimately, the Content Dashboard is where the decisions are made as to what content is published to your platform or what is saved and categorized for later use.
