Content Dashboard

Overview

Content Dashboard

The Content Dashboard is a cloud-based content management hub and interface which is the control center for all incoming and pre-existing content. Thanks to its user-friendly interface, all content can be managed, processed and published, quickly and easily, facilitating a seamless transition from the user capturing the footage to the end user watching it.

Using the Content Dashboard, decision-makers or senior members of staff can monitor all of the incoming footage, preview the content, give real-time direction and feedback to the users capturing the video out in the field using the audio talkback and text chat features, and ultimately decide what content to publish to your platform.
