The video and audio player used by Swiss Re was originally created using Adobe Flash technology and later ported to an HTML5 version. There were several versions of the player with different configurations and representations. The correct representation was depentent from the embed code on the website because the width and height of the player was defined by parameters.
The Swiss Re Player automatically adjusts the size and proportion to the used screen size and the video resolution. Presentations, screencasts and videos in different proportions are displayed optimally. Low-resolution videos are deliberately not up-scaled to preserve the representation quality.
The Swiss Re Player plays both video and audio and recognizes what kind of content has to be displayed. Depending on whether a project contains presentations, chapter markers, downloads or links, the corresponding variant is displayed, thus guaranteeing optimum usability.
Next to the standard parameters of the simplex player, the Swiss Re Player supports further customer-specific parameters. For example, the logo of the individual business units is adapted or the header with logo and project title completely hidden. For audio projects, the preview image can be hidden. The parameters can be defined once in the profile and apply to future as well as existing videos.
The authentication methods which are available in simplex Pro are also supported in the Swiss Re Player. To be able to protect the videos, a password for all users or individual logins for specific users can be created. In addition, SAML2 enables a connection to existing Active Directory Servers.
The Swiss Re Player was developed on the basis of the simplex Player Development Kit (PDK). In order for Swiss Re to be able to carry out customer-specific enhancements on its own, the mode of operation and the customization options have been documented and a demo provided. Future adjustments can be made by the customer himself.
