    Ian DeLacy

    Project Manager, Live Stream / Audio Team

    Cadmium

    I started my professional career as a Network Engineer and Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer. Being an Entrepreneur, I went to work for myself doing large Network installations. In between projects I would work for AVMG as a Speaker Ready Technician in the early 2000's. I learned Audio Visual equipment and advanced in all areas of Live Events. Speaker Ready, Graphics Operator, Audio, and Projection skills have led me to leadership opportunities. After 20 years of experience of managing and leading many of the largest events, Covid put an end to a successful business. Cadmium provided a new home and place to utilize the skills I have obtained. I thrive in Customer Service and going above and beyond to deliver a superior product.

    Video is an integral part of any learning management business. From the quality of the content to the level of interactivity, videos can make or break how engaged learners are with your course. The problem with putting your video content online is that you may unintentionally leave yourself vulnerable to unapproved content sharing or even video piracy. Most learning management systems (LMS), including Cadmium's Elevate and EthosCE, support embedding or uploading videos, but a unique offering of both Elevate and EthosCE is the ability to integrate directly with Warpwire, Cadmium's secure video management platform, allowing for additional security with your learning content. This session will take a look at best practices with ensuring the video content on your LMS and tools built-in to Warpwire to ensure your content is secure.
