i-ACT, a non-profit organization, was looking for ways to organize and archive its hundreds of hours of video footage and thousands of digital images documenting. After a detailed analysis, i-ACT selected the Widen Media Collective for its exclusive features that help in effortlessly rearranging both images and video assets.
Before Widen Media Collective, i-ACT stored the digital images documenting, such as the atrocities committed against the people of Darfur, on random hard drives without tagging and these were available only to internal staff members.
“Our library is only searchable by our team and is based off memory," stated Katie-Jay Scott-Stauring, director of operations and community involvement for i-ACT. "We want our assets to be accessible to the public, where they can search and download what they want by themselves."
The new system will allow i-ACT staff, the general public and media outlets to easily search, download and use any its digital image and video assets under a creative commons license. The activist community will also be using the system for downloading edited videos for education and awareness events.
"Like most non-profits, we have too much on our plates for the capacity that we have," stated Scott-Stauring. He said that Widen's advisors made the process extremely easy and efficient.
