About Klewel

Klewel is a spin-off of the Idiap Research Institute which is affiliated with EPFL Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. We are located in Martigny, Switzerland with capabilities to capture conferences all over the world.
Klewel proposes a comprehensive webcasting solution, complete with an audiovisual recording station linked to a web platform that makes it possible to automatically reference, edit and publish content (audio, video, slide shows) in total simplicity. In addition, the content of each presented slide is also indexed. Each event is accessible anytime, anywhere (at home, at the office or elsewhere) and can be viewed on all types of devices: computer, mobile phone, tablet, etc.
You can ask for your event to be recorded by Klewel who will manage the entire service, or you can purchase or rent a Klewel station and record your events at your convenience, with Klewel ensuring automation of the web service.
The term “Klewel” comes from the breton language: this is a contraction of two terms “Klevet” and “Gwelet” which respectively mean to “listen” and to “see”.

What We Do Best

Klewel not only keeps your presentations alive but also ensures that they can be:
  • consulted quickly and clearly, and easily retrieved (search engine)
  • personalised at will, directly integrated in your website
  • viewed on all types of media (computer, tablet, mobile phone)
  • accessible online (general public) or via Intranet (protected)
In addition, you have an integrated statistical tool with which you can measure the interest generated by your presentations and target future content in a relevant way.
The Klewel station can be used with a microphone (or the output of a mixing console) and a camera (or the output of the audiovisual control room). Recording of each event starts and stops at the simple press of a button. Once recording is complete, data is automatically uploaded to a server. The Klewel solution references all event content (including audio, video and projections). The content of presentations is automatically indexed. Before being broadcast on the desired medium, the presentation can be personalised at will. One click and it’s online! The Klewel station is available as a portable computer or it may be delivered in a
customised form to meet your needs.
