Case Studies

Dekkolux: Skydeck Chicago

Skydeck Chicago is a glass observation deck hanging off the side of Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears tower). I created a video souvenir processing system that automatically edits the rough cut by locating one second before and after talking. Then, it runs it through a template project to produce a final video. See an example video souvenir.

Create video templates with an into, outro, music bed, and graphic and text overlays. Then, let users upload a clip, pick a template, enter the text for a title. Let the server do the work of encoding and publishing the final video.

Leuphana University: Wikimedia Video Editing Server

I created a video editing collaboration server that accepts source video in just about any format (Wikimedia only accepts free formats). The assets are catalogued and stored on Internet Archive. It also accepts Kdenlive MLT XML project files and recognizes dependencies between project and media files. When all dependencies are available, the server renders and encodes the project. Upon approval of the project rendering, the user can request the server to publish it to Wikimedia Commons on their behalf. Here is an example project.

Let your users download their clips and highlights, do more extensive video editing in Shotcut, upload only the revised project file (plus new assets), and let the cloud encode the result. Those projects can then be similarly revised and remixed.

Ushodaya: ETV India

Ushodaya is the original sponsor of the MLT and Melted projects! They are a popular satellite TV broadcaster in India.

Make your own broadcast/OTT linear/live TV channel using MLT and/or Melted.


I developed a video playout solution for SLAM!FM's first foray into creating a music video channel. It supplies a very nice web-based management tool for uploading assets, entering metadata, creating and scheduling playlists, and configuring overlay text and graphic filters.

Make your own broadcast/OTT linear/live TV channel using MLT's scripting language bindings.


ConnecTV integrated near-realtime HTML5 graphics and text into a broadcast playout solution.

Make your own broadcast graphics solution using MLT's WebVfx and Blackmagic Design DeckLink SDI modules.
