KGL PubFactory Launches New Video Features

SiteGen Module and integration with Cadmore Media platform offer publishers new delivery options and an enhanced user experience 

June 8, 2021 – Boston, MA – KGL PubFactory, a division of KnowledgeWorks Global Ltd. (KGL), has added advanced support for video content to its online hosting platform, providing scholarly publishers with new opportunities to modernize their content offering while adapting media assets for academic audiences.

The first publication to launch streaming video and transcripts via the Cadmore Media platform on its PubFactory website this July is Neurosurgical Focus: Video, part of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons’ Journal of Neurosurgery Publishing Group (JNSPG). Covering a different topic in depth each month, the groundbreaking video journal provides state-of-the-art “textbook chapters” in the field of neurosurgery. Cadmore’s fully accessible media player features advanced navigation, searching and skimming options, and support for extended metadata, in addition to fully transcribed and searchable text for video content. KGL’s production team will integrate Cadmore’s video player and transcripts into its online deliverables through a streamlined XML workflow.

At the same time, leading publisher of information on physical activity, Human Kinetics is launching a new video library alongside its 26 journals hosted on KGL PubFactory. Now live at video.humankinetics.com, the mobile-friendly companion site features 517 searchable videos and 133 images from the publisher’s Dance Technique Collection. The library was created using the platform’s SiteGen website launch module, which allows for agile product experimentation as Human Kinetics seeks to offer new enhanced teaching resources and dynamic learning tools for students. KGL’s sister company Sheridan also provides printing and distribution for the publisher’s journals, and subscriber services for both journals and video.

Jessica Lawrence-Hurt, Chief Marketing Officer at Cadmore Media, commented: “Cadmore is delighted to partner with KGL PubFactory and offer our video streaming solution to academic and professional publishers looking to augment their offering with new media assets. With advanced analytics and a fully searchable and accessible player, PubFactory publishers can deliver and measure expanded content that is inclusive while providing a better user experience for all. We look forward to supporting more video features, articles, and libraries for additional platform customers in the future.”

Gillian Shasby, Director of Publications at JNSPG, reiterated: “We are very excited to launch an entirely new site for Neurosurgical Focus: Video that will achieve the full potential of its format. Retaining a comprehensive supplier like KGL that can integrate production workflows, hosting, and network partners like Cadmore has been instrumental in refreshing our best-in-class video journal efficiently without handoffs or multiple negotiations.”

KGL’s end-to-end proposition for scholarly publishers includes project management, AI-powered language analysis and copyediting, XML composition and proofing, digital and print production, and online hosting. The PubFactory platform hosts over 1,300 journals and 300,000 books, numerous databases, and reference works.
