I was a bit tired of the name “Open Source Video Managment System” and “Digital Video Server” doesn’t sound much better. Both of those do a much better job describing what my project does, and don’t really establish an identify for it. Kind of like “Digital Signage”, the first name we worked on the Concerto project…. describing what our system does, yes… but not really establishing an identity for it.
So I asked Katie Boudreau, one of the more graphically inclined people I know, to come up with a logo and name for my project that was a little more unique than I might come up with. You can check out the logo at the top of this page, I think it came out pretty great!
Now I need to come up with an answer if people ask “Why did you choose the name Bonsai video?”.
