We launched the Miro customization and co-branding program earlier this year in order to give video producers a tool for simple, integrated distribution of many podcasts. We’ve had interest from lots of non-profits looking for simple ways to distribute video content online and we’ve always wanted to offer the co-branding service to them for free. These have included both public broadcasters and organizations that do independent media and activism.
Unfortunately, we’ve been unable to serve all of these non-profits because we haven’t had enough people to work with them. Rather than throwing up our hands, we’ve built a simplified, externally facing version of our co-branding tool especially for non-profit organizations. Now, any non-profit can get a co-branded version of Miro for free that will automatically update to include the latest Miro features.
If you are a non-profit and would like to have a custom version of Miro for your organization – “Miro – MyGroup Edition” – you can make it now. It will come pre-subscribed to your channels and with your own startuppage. It’s a great way to turn visitors to your website into subscribers.
This is one of the things I love about working for Miro: we’re able to do projects like this that are focused directly on serving our mission and helping non-commercial broadcasters reach an audience. It’s exactly why we’re here.
As usual, for-profit companies should contact us about co-branding opportunities. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. Revision3, TED Conference, Deutsche Welle, and other companies and organizations are already offering custom versions of Miro with great results.
Update: Worcester, MA public access station WCCA has already used the custom Miro generator to make a “Public Access TV” version of Miro with feeds from stations around the country. Download the player or just those station feeds here.
