The video management system for universities and higher education universities in Switzerland

Welcome to the SWITCHcast expert site

Together with SWITCHtube (part 2), SWITCHcast is part of SWITCH's video management system. Research and teaching staff can use it to create, edit, manage and publish video and audio content. A lecture or training course can be recorded and then uploaded to the SWITCH data centre for processing. The editing software supports functions such as cutting scenes and editing metadata.
