EngageMedia co-founded the Transmission network in 2006. The objective of the network was to make independent online video distribution possible using Free and Open Source Software by building the necessary tools, standards, documentation, and social networks.
In May 2008, Transmission Asia-Pacific brought together projects from 15 different countries, from Japan to India, and China to New Zealand, to discuss ways to most effectively use online video as a social change tool.
EngageMedia has conducted research for the Citizen Lab Cyber Stewards Network to understand how journalists themselves define the concept of ‘security’, what constitute practices of ‘security’, and what they do to learn about and practice ‘secure’ behaviours.
From 2005-2020, EngageMedia produced and maintained Plumi, a video-sharing web application, in partnership with various developers. Plumi was a Free Software video-sharing web application based on the Plone content management system.
EngageMedia undertakes a range of research initiatives focused on video for change, open and secure technology, and digital rights.
EngageMedia is pleased to announce a Plone Video Sprint at this years Plone Conference in Budapest, Hungary.
