Ensemble Studio Workflows - System & Institution Level

Ensemble Video utilizes Workflows, which define the process through which a video is made available for viewing. Ensemble Studio has its own Workflow which allows for level of customization.

It is important to note that Ensemble Studio makes use of the System Workflow in addition to the Ensemble Studio Workflow.  The Ensemble Studio Workflow allows customization of video setup, screen setup, streaming server addresses, etc.   However, once the video is done streaming the captured video file is then processed through the System Workflow for that Library. 

NOTE:  It is critical that you confirm your System Workflow is correct before using Ensemble Studio, as well as other features of Ensemble.   

The Ensemble Studio Workflow and the System Workflow are utilized in tandem to provide the Ensemble Studio streaming/playback functionality.   The Live Streaming and device configuration are done using the Ensemble Studio Workflow.  The Video-On-Demand playback capabilities of Ensemble Studio utilize the System Workflow to provide that functionality.

For more information on System Workflows, please visit this Support Article.

There are two locations to setup your Ensemble Studio Workflow.   At the System level you are providing a template for all the Institution to use as a starting point.   At the Institution Level you are able to add/modify settings as well as specify a CDN Address (which isn't supported at the System Level).   The two sections below explain how to setup/configure both the System and Institution Ensemble Studio Workflow.
