MNPS Rolls Out VOD District-wide


Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools in Tennessee is deploying video on demand and digital asset management tools across all of its 135 schools. The district, one of the 50 largest in the United States, signed a five-year contract with Library Video Co., which will supply the services through its Safari Montage video on demand system.

Safari Montage is a WAN-based VOD and DAM system designed specifically for schools. It includes four-, eight- and 10-bay server configurations, a core content package with pre-loaded titles from educational video producers (National Geographic, Discovery Channel, Disney Education and others), tools for creating and adding content, and a WAN manager for districts delivering content to schools.

A specific date for the final rollout has not been set, but Library Video Co. said all of the schools in the district will be receiving the service.

Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools serves more than 74,000 students in 74 elementary schools; 35 middle schools; 15 high schools; and nine alternative, special ed, and charter schools.
