Video Streaming Ecommerce Subscription Case Study - Oxford College of Coach Mentoring

This innovative e commerce project for the Oxford College of Coach Mentoring provides corporate customers with secure ecommerce purchasing for their employees to access a multi-subscription training service which includes audio and video streaming sessions up to one hour in length.

Technical Challenge

There were a wide variety of audio and video files that needed standardisation and conversion to Flash streaming technology.

The challenge was to ensure the 1hr plus video and audio delivery was quick-loading, with a smooth, consistent delivery.

Optimal testing and setting of bit rates, encoding; bandwidth; frame rates; video data rate, audio data rate, video size, number of users were all issues that were considered, in order to achieve the highest video/audio streaming quality for the website.

Security and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Protection

Appropriate technologies and programming methods were employed to maximise the security of the ecommerce website and the video and audio streaming in order to protect the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) of the material being viewed and listened to.

Immediately the site was launched, Oxford College of Coach Mentoring was in negotiation with very interested corporate customers in the US and London UK. The impact and quality of the training videos supported OCMC in gaining a contract with the largest insurance provider in the UK – and fifth largest worldwide, with 40 million customers – to provide them with a dedicated video training portal.

Usability for the end-user is as high as possible, yet the site retains a professional image using high quality audio and video and ecommerce (shopping cart) technology.

Customer feedback has been very positive about the features incorporated in the site and the Oxford College of Coach Mentoring international annual conference was viewable online for the first time.

The outcome is a very solid e-commerce system, with many additional features and functions, which looks great and performs its tasks perfectly...We found Synergi to be professional in their approach and had the needs of our business at heart whilst also being friendly."
