Meet Vidigami REWIND

Have an avalanche of media from prior years? You might want to try REWIND and LIBRARY. These are valuable add-ons to your standard Vidigami service that allow you to preserve your entire school’s photo and book archive in one private and secure portal.

Media added into REWIND is intelligently tagged by school year > group(s) > album(s) > context and people (when possible), helping you easily search for, use and share content from past school years.

Vidigami starts with your current school year and we keep adding new years as you roll into them. REWIND adds all those years before you even start using the system.

Once you sign up, we will add all the Rewind years you request in increments that best reflect your archive. For example, if your school started in 1970, we may add Rewind years as follows: 1970/1971, 1980/1981, 1990/1991, 2000-2010, 2011/2012…etc.  It’s up to you!

Once set up, these stacked years work just like your current year would. You can create groups, albums and add photos to them, which you can then tag and organize.

Vidigami is customized according to the organization of your school – from clubs and teams to classrooms and families. Regardless of who is uploading photos and videos, media is immediately tagged at upload according to its destination and will inherit the context tags (or keywords) associated with that album. That means you can search for current year and past year content all in one place – centralized and easily accessible when you need it! Photos tagged by name are also added to that user’s media portfolio of their life and work. From the day they start school to the day they graduate, all their school memories will be organized and available by simply logging into their account.

Adding Rewind Years is easy! Let your Client Success Specialist know if you’d like to get started.

Got Old Yearbooks, LitMags, Viewbooks?

Why keep them in boxes in the storage closet? Share your digitized collection of e-books in your school’s very own online LIBRARY.

LIBRARY is where you can archive and display PDFs of yearbooks, viewbooks and other school publications, accessible to your entire community! Once activated, LIBRARY appears on your sidebar in Vidigami, right under your Admin Panel. When a user visits the page, they can click on the book and “flip” through it on the screen. Team Vidigami will help you upload your content so it appears in your online Library.

To get started:

  1. Contact your Client Success Specialist to develop a plan.
  2. Get your printed books digitized as PDFs and share them with your CSS. We encourage schools to enlist the help of specialized vendors for this.
  3. Share your books with your CSS. They will launch your LIBRARY within an agreed timeframe.
  4. Library books will be viewable on both the mobile and desktop app!

Don’t delay! Let your Client Success Specialist know if you’d like to get started, and make your school-wide publications readily available to all members of your community in Vidigami

Note: This is not currently a self service feature, so please be sure to consult with your client success specialist to develop a plan for how you would like to start building out your online LIBRARY!

FAQs

As far back as you need! Whether its 3, 5, 10 or 20+ school years, we can add as many years as you need.

No, only administrator users or those with access to THOSE years may access REWIND years. Please connect with your Vidigami representative for more information.

No problem! All you will need to do is let us know, and we’ll add the previous school year to your Vidigami site and we will help you get it set up.

You can upload as much media as you like per REWIND year.

Yes. Photos and native videos can be downloaded by anyone as long as permissions allow. Once your “old” media is in Vidigami, it can be accessed the same way as your current content.

There is an annual service fee for REWIND. Please contact sales@vidigami.com for pricing as it can vary depending on the size of school that you are.

Looking to centralize your photos in Vidigami from Flickr, Google Drive, or local server?

At a marginal cost, we’ll help your school transfer your photos into Vidigami. If those photos have IPTC-data, we can also import those into Vidigami as keywords so that they remain searchable. Let us help make this effortless for you!

To get started, here’s what we’ll need:

1 – Authorize Vidigami with Access to your current photo storage

Please provide an administrative login to your current media storage so that we can access the digital files. When uploading this content to Vidigami, we will use our best judgment to set up groups and albums based on your original structure. You will be able to modify this structure at at any time after the transfer.

2 – Importing Metadata

To preserve the metadata associated with your images, they must be stored in an IPTC-compliant format. If images contain IPTC-compliant data, the image and associated data will flow into Vidigami. Metadata will be displayed as keyword tags so they are searchable in the system. Read more about IPTC standards here.

3 – Determine Cost and Time to Complete

Content transfer fee:  $25/1000 photos.

Your CSS will work with you to set up REWIND according to a project timeline. Assuming no unexpected challenges arise, up to 10,000 photos can be transferred within a 2 week period (varies depending on time of the year).
