Qumu Extends the Value of Unified Communications Platforms
San Bruno, CA, March 2, 2016 – Qumu (NASDAQ: QUMU), the leader in enterprise video, today announced the availability of a certified extension to the Pexip Infinity meeting platform that simplifies the recording, management, distribution and replay of Pexip meetings to make these valuable content assets easily searchable and accessible to an organization. The Pexip add-on is the first of many planned integrations with UC solutions to be powered by the innovative Qumu UC Gateway.
Qumu’s innovative, certified extension to the Pexip Infinity meeting platform makes recording meetings simple and scalable
Video is growing rapidly as an enterprise communication tool, greatly increasing the volume of video meetings. One Fortune 100 company recently reported conducting 40,000 video calls in a typical week. This higher volume of unified communications (UC) video is stressing legacy UC video platforms, while the increasing number of UC video solutions deployed within a single organization is fragmenting workflows, further limiting the ability of companies to record and share this valuable knowledge.
Qumu’s industry-leading UC Gateway capability, a feature of the Qumu video platform, enables Qumu to integrate with a company’s unified communications ecosystem – including video conferencing, web conferencing and scheduling applications – to make recording calls a seamless part of starting any meeting.
After the conference, the recordings are stored, distributed and managed centrally using enterprise-class content management capabilities such as security, search, and availability on all devices. The Qumu video platform can scale to archive millions of recordings from a company’s multiple video conference and web conference solutions, providing a long-term video content platform that will remain constant as UC technologies evolve over time.
“Enterprises today are challenged by a diverse UC video portfolio, including legacy hardware-based UC installations, legacy web conferencing applications and the newest software or cloud-based solutions,” said Vern Hanzlik, president and CEO of Qumu. “The Qumu platform gives organizations a way to capture and manage valuable knowledge assets from all of their UC platforms, both today and in the future.”
Qumu now available for Pexip Infinity solutions
The Qumu Pexip extension is now available as an option to integrate with Pexip Infinity. Enterprises running Pexip Infinity solutions can thus easily record, store and play back Pexip conferences. With the Qumu option, Pexip conferences may also be live streamed to add hundreds or thousands of one-way viewers to the meeting.
“The ability to record, store, play back, and stream meetings and conferences is an essential feature for many of our enterprise customers,” said Åsmund Fodstad, CEO of Pexip. “Seamlessly integrating with Qumu’s recognized and market leading enterprise video content management platform makes all that easy for them, with a flexible solution that scales and adapts to their requirements.”
“Working with a global video conferencing leader like Pexip is an honor for Qumu,” said Mr. Hanzlik. “We believe Pexip’s Infinity platform sets the standard for future UC and video infrastructure, and as a leader in enterprise video content management, we’re very excited to add value for Pexip’s customers through the addition of simple-to-use enterprise video content management capabilities.”
