A group in the Netherlands called XS2Justice Foundation has been working for years to develop a special business model for third world countries to improve access to justice. Part of that business model includes a tool to finance legal services for the poor -- about 4 billion people worldwide cannot rely on the law for protection, and more than 80 percent of property and people remain unregistered, according to the foundation.

Van Rooij, founder and chairman of XS2Justice Foundation. “An out-of-the-box, sustainable and scalable solution is needed.”

No one in the world does automated lecture capture bigger or better than the University of Leeds. Launched in the fall of 2014, the university successfully deployed more than 250 rooms at once. In the first four months alone, they created 16,500 videos that were viewed 185,000 times – and those numbers have been multiplying ever since.
