The Collective

Posted by cservaes on July 23, 2013 in "Current Students" In December 2011, Ottawa University launched use of the cloud-based Widen Media Collective. Utilized by internal and external departments for marketing, advertising, alumni relations, and archiving, the media collective currently hosts more than 42,000 digital assets, providing a globally accessible hub for production needs. All asset types hosted in the collective, such as images and videos, can be immediately transformed for use in print, radio, television, and online, creating a thoroughly integrated framework for development. Having these assets centrally and securely housed ensures that Ottawa University will never need to worry about the inadvertent loss or destruction of the assets and the invaluable history associated with them.
