Cloud-based learning and full-motion video integration are some of the innovative characteristics that won Minneapolis-based TTNLearning a silver Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology Award for Best Advance in Unique Learning Technology.

TTN’s software product, called the Élan Video Platform with Automated HTML5 Conversion earned the award. The advanced technology provides users in a digital learning environment with a state-of-the-art integrated video platform that automatically converts user-uploaded video into desktop- and mobile-compatible HTML5 formats for playback on any device.

“We are honored to receive this award,” said Jerry Cox, president of TTN. “We’re happy the video platform has provided our customers with an unprecedented tool for easily uploading and converting their video content for viewing on virtually any type of device, bringing highly sophisticated training to a variety of learners in many different types of environments.”

As well as the HTML5 conversion, the Élan Video Platform uses device detection and adaptive streaming technology to automatically playback the appropriate encoding type and deliver the highest quality stream every time. The Élan video player uses bandwidth monitoring to efficiently stream the appropriate file sizes based on the users constantly changing bandwidth connection.

Entries for the award were judged by a select panel of industry professionals, including university professors, business and technology executives, and instructional designers and program developers from corporations, nonprofits and government organizations from around the globe.
