Opencast is a university-wide video management service that on the one hand enables the automated recording of (teaching) events in large lecture halls, on the other hand offers the storage and provision of digital instructional videos mainly in ILIAS, but also in web projects or in the OER framework. Playback is done via HLS streaming with the opencast version installed at the Univerity of Cologne.
