Due to an award winning shot boundary detection technology Video Suite can create records for each shot in the video, which can even be annotated with additional metadata. Cumulus Video Suite even supports streaming for viewing video files over the Internet, catering the needs of corporations where secure distribution of training, sales and marketing videos is a pressing concern.
