How VeGAS works

VeGAS is a Make.com application. We install and configure your Zoom, Make.com and Vimeo to work seamlessly together.

VeGAS monitors all recordings happening with your Zoom host. As soon as a meeting is finished VeGAS picks up the recording and starts processing.

Video metadata is shuttled across the into VeGAS for preparation into the archiving platform. At this point any metadata transformation can happen.

Once complete, VeGAS sends the data into Vimeo for storge. VeGAS attaches metadata to the title, description and organizes the video into a configured set of folders and showcases.

VeGAS creates a time-coded transcript which is available shortly after the video is uploaded. VeGAS can invoke notifications such as a custom email notification with a link to the video or a Slack message containing link and other relevant information.

VeGAS users can login and easily navigate, search or compile information on recordings in a friendly web based or mobile app. Searching transcriptions and scrubbing the video is available in the web browser app.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the annual cost of VeGAS?

The yearly license fee is $699 USD per year. This includes support, a subscription to Make.com (a $108/year value) and Vimeo Pro Plus account (a $240/year value). Vimeo Pro Plus includes 1TB of storage per year, and a maximum of 20GB of uploads per week. You get about 90 hours of archived & transcribed recordings per week for $699 USD per year.

If you need more storage beyond 90 hours of per week, the cost is based on a usage model of 0.01c per minute of recording. A company that needs an extra 5000 minutes of recordings per month would pay $50.00 per month on top of the yearly $699 license fee.

By way of comparison, Grain.com costs $19 PER SEAT! So if you have 10 Zoom seats it will cost you $190/month for a total of over $2000 per year. VeGAS can have unlimited Zoom seats since we do not charge by seat but rather by storage of video.

How does VeGAS work?

It is sort of like magic…🧙‍♂️

But seriously, we figured out that Vimeo can download a video file directly from the Zoom servers without going through intermediate computers. No need to download the video to your computer and then upload to Vimeo. No need to install any third party apps on your Zoom accounts.
Here’s a technical diagram of the various components that make up VeGAS:

Archiving, organization of recordings and automatic transcription happen in the background as you record videos.

How long does it take to install VeGAS?

About 1 hour. We procure your accounts for you, create the necessary connections into Zoom and Vimeo and turn the switch on VeGAS. A few test meetings and you’re good to go!

VeGAS requires:

– a Make.com account at the “Core” tier
– a Vimeo Pro Plus account with 20GB of storage per week, up to 1TB per year
– a Zoom One Pro account or higher

How do automatic transcriptions work?

VeGAS employs the WebVTT format used on many closed captioning systems on the Internet. Once a video has been uploaded by VeGAS the archiving system’s artificial intelligence engine processes the audio track. The speech is converted to text and a time code is attached to each phrase or sentence. The system allows you to search or navigate the video by simply clicking on the time code to “scrub” to that part of the video instantly. We estimate that a 30 minute video has about 5,000 words, and the accuracy is about 95% accurate for standard English speech.

What is the language of transcriptions?

Currently only English is available for automatic transcription.

Can we customize the video website and create our own video portal?

Yes, we can build a custom video portal on a time/materials basis. We use a WordPress plugin called Vimeography.
