At OSCON in San Jose, Kaltura announced the public launch of its open source online video platform, called Kaltura Community Edition.

It is currently available for download at Kaltura.org under the GPL Affero license.

The software lets businesses and other organizations host their own video video collections, which can be integrated with open source community network programs like WordPress, Drupal, MediaWiki, MindTouch or Moodle.

The platform supports all the functions needed by an online video publisher, including easy import of videos, editing, streaming, and support for advertising. In addition its Kaltura Network includes re-mixable content under the Creative Commons BY-SA license, including 600,000 images from the New York Public Library.

Kaltura, an Israeli company, has its U.S. headquarters in New York City. The business model, as with other corporate open source projects, combines a hosted SaaS version of the software and commercial video services such support packages, streaming, hosting, and backup.

The launch follows an Open Video Conference Kaltura hosted in June in New York. The company is part of the Open Video Alliance.
