Skylab’s MediaTank Hosts National Film And Television School

Bringing The Best In British Cinema

Skylab is hiring!


The National Film and Television School (NFTS) attracts the most talented students from around the world and its tutors include some of the biggest names from British cinema. The school boasts its own film and television studios equal to those of professional companies, its student films have won 5 OSCARS, 8 BAFTAs and is ranked within the top 10 film schools in the world by The Hollywood Reporter.

As a leading film school the NFTS needed a swift and secure way to deliver thousands of hours of high-quality video content to its countless audience members and also deliver exclusive content directly to the major Hollywood studios.

The ideal solution presented itself in a customised installation of Skylab's MediaTank online video platform which would bolt onto their new website.

The NFTS also required password protected channels. These channels can host anything, including the full-length feature films that match their public facing trailers. The password protected channels make it easy to protect valuable content for review by various parties including industry production houses.

MediaTank can host hundreds of thousands of hours of secured video footage, which made it a natural fit for NFTS. MediaTank offers a wide variety of other features beyond just hosting and delivering video content including:

YouTube integration to complement NFTS existing channels.
Integration of social features for easy sharing.
Facebook integration allowing for a custom app to play videos through Facebook.
High definition, mobile, web and tablet encoding allowing playback on all devices.
Sub-channels to organise content under various themes including documentaries, animation, fiction, etc.
Password protected channels for separating film trailers and full-length films.

Nik Powell, Director of the NFTS / Jon Wardle, NFTS Registrar and Head of Curriculum, said: "With our vast library of video we reviewed many on-line video platforms and Skylab's MediaTank product offered the most flexibility including post-processing high definition and mobile encoding. Because MediaTank can be scaled up to host more content it's a natural fit for our ever-growing collection of film footage."
