Move over, live video; enterprises need streaming video services
Live video conferencing is proving to be a useful tool for connecting employees and branch offices, regardless of location. But enterprises with highly distributed workforces are discovering that real-time video communications is not the only way to connect people in the company. Traditional video conferencing providers have started offering services and platforms for streaming video services.
Persistent video -- often referred to as "YouTube" for the enterprise -- allows businesses to not only view live content and webcasts behind their own firewalls, but also to store and save videos for later use. These services also can offer enterprise-grade security and video management features, such as editing, tracking, and search and analytics.
