Integrate a full-featured video portal into your Website, Facebook Page, Mobile Site & Connected TV Applications.
What is the Launchpad6 Video CMS?
More than just an Online Video Platform, The Launchpad6 Video CMS is a content management system that allows you to integrate a full-featured video portal into your Website, Facebook Page, Mobile Site & Connected TV Applications.
Sites can be customised to suit your requirements and our modular system allows you to pick and choose the features you require.
Quick and simple wizard-based setup
Our Setup Wizard makes it quick and easy to customise and deploy a full-featured video site across multiple devices and social networks. It lets you add video categories, SEO Metadata and connect your social media accounts as well as enabling you to upload your organisations logos and branding. For the more advanced users, the Setup Wizard allows you to download and edit the CSS stylesheets, giving you full control of the sites look and feel.
Seamless Cross-Platform Compatibility
The Launchpad6 Video CMS is the only video site platform that offers true integration across all devices, including Mobiles, Tablets & Connected TV’s.
Not only does our Intelligent Player seamlessly switch between HTML5 and Flash to ensure playback on all devices, but site features sync perfectly as well. Signup on the Microsite and login to the Facebook Application. Comment on a video from your mobile and see the comment appear instantly in your browser. Just like magic.
Extensive Social Media Integration
Whilst some video platforms claim to have social media integration, very few are built from the ground up around social sharing. Our SocialSync technology allows you to sync videos uploaded to your video site with your YouTube Channel as well as publish Tweets about your new videos to your Twitter Account.
On top of that, we created a full-featured Facebook Application which allows you to integrate your entire video site into your Facebook Brand Page.
On the user front, we allocated prime real estate to social sharing icons and built the process of sharing into the user upload section to ensure your users help spread your content virally for you.
Full HD Streaming
The Launchpad6 Video Engine is designed to ensure users receive the highest quality video and the best possible viewing experience.
Our video engine creates 6 copies of each video uploaded, including a full 1080p version where possible. Upon playback, our system analyses the users bandwidth and sends the most appropriate version to ensure smooth video playback at the highest possible quality.
User Accounts & User Generated Content
The Launchpad6 Video CMS includes secure user authentication that allows users to signup to your video site with their email address or Facebook Account.
Depending on site settings, registered users can vote and comment on videos, upload their own videos to certain categories and access the My Account area to view analytics on their uploads, edit their profile page or change their preferences.
Self-Manageable Administration Area
The Launchpad6 Video CMS includes a comprehensive administration area that allows you to administer your video site yourself.
Administrators can upload video to the site, add or delete categories, moderate used-generated videos, edit or delete comments as well as as a host of other tasks. This ultimately means you can administer the site yourself in real-time and no longer have to wait for web developers to make the tiniest of changes.
Powerful Ad Server + Ad Network Integration
The Launchpad6 Video CMS includes an ad-server powered by the comprehensive OpenX Ad Serving Platform. This ad-server allows you to administer and serve both banner and video advertisements and provides comprehensive inventory management capabilities, such as the option of having multiple advertisers with multiple campaigns.
Alternatively, it is possible to sell advertising inventory on the OpenX Market or plugin an Ad Network to help monetise your content. This ultimately gives you freedom to monetise your content how you choose and focus your attention elsewhere.
The Launchpad6 Video CMS comes complete with a powerful analytics package that allows you to comprehensively measure your return on investment.
The comprehensive Analytics system includes basic traffic metrics like Visits & Video Views, engagement metrics such as Time On Site & Total Minutes Viewed as well as social metrics like Shares & Likes. It also enables you to drill down and view analytics by Platform (Website, Facebook, Mobile, etc) as well as by Video, arming you with all the information you need to review and optimize your content.
Extendable Plugin Architecture
The Launchpad6 Video CMS has an extendable plugin architecture that enables you to easily add additional functionality or connect to 3rd-party platforms such as ad-servers, analytics packages or other CMS systems.
Our library of plugins can enable your video site to accept text and photo uploads, connect to WordPress or Google Analytics, install your own ad-server and even accept donations or add calls to action from within the player.

API’s for 3rd party integration
The Launchpad6 Video CMS comes complete with a comprehensive set of API’s for plugging in to Smartphone Apps, Connected TV Apps, Widgets, etc.
Using the API system you are able to build a third party application such a Smartphone App and fully integrate the functionality of the Video Engine, including viewing, registering, searching, voting, commenting and uploading.
Powerful Cloud Based Infrastructure
The Launchpad6 Video CMS utilises the cloud computing power of Amazon Web Services to provide proven reliability and scalability.
Your video site is load balanced across multiple server clusters in different availability zones to ensure that spikes in traffic can be met and that there is no single point of failure. Our information architecture is so advanced that Amazon themselves wrote a case study on our application on their AWS website.
