Video Player

Building the Getty website’s streaming video player represents one of my greatest challenges. Not only did I learn best practices for optimizing files for streaming, but also valuable lessons on developing a stable application. Upon receiving initial designs, I worked with our web team to make the player come alive. Coding and design was an iterative process with user testing in phases of the player’s development which resulted in the evolution of its final design and functionality. The player was used across the Getty’s website to play various video content ranging from recording of lectures to documentation of artworks.
