By taking advantage of TeleScope’s comprehensive permissions model, our video library can be securely accessible by the Gallaudet community, with portions being accessible to K-12 teachers, University teacher education programs, scholars, and researchers from the world-wide community of people interested in deafness.”

“North Plains understands what we need. They are uniquely focused on the DAM industry. Their domain expertise in both production and publishing workflows gave us a unified view of our marketing and production supply chain. In addition, they have an excellent and proven professional services team. We’re pleased to have them as our solutions partner (for our) major project. When we’re finished, our data will be integrated into one system, essentially abandoning the older system in favor of Telescope, and we’ll also begin automating a significantly larger amount of our print and on-line materials.”
