We really like Tek Data's WebMax. We have almost 2,000 teachers using the system in the K-12 arena. It is very intuitive, allows one-stop shopping for our streaming content and allows incorporation of packages of streaming media such as Power Media, United streaming etc.

hi all

This discussion has periodically made the rounds of videolib in the past,
but I need to ask it again.

Is anyone using turnkey media booking/reservation system or software that
they like? I'm particularly interested in web-based systems. I know
about MediaNet, how about others...?

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
