Choosing the Best Video Distribution Technology for Your Environment

Alfie LaTorre, Qumu Senior Sales Engineer

Selecting, procuring and ultimately deploying an enterprise streaming platform can be both complex and challenging, particularly when the most important part of the streaming solution—video distribution—is overlooked. While things like user interface, security and feature set are important considerations, none of these affect the end-user experience to the same degree as the quality of video playback. Providing high quality video to every device while minimizing network impact should be at the top of any enterprise video requirement list, and this requirement simply cannot be met without an enterprise video distribution technology that fits your unique environment.

As consumers in a video-first culture, today’s Global 2000 employees have high expectations regarding video quality in the workplace. Join Qumu Senior Sales Engineer Alfie LaTorre as he discusses how large organizations are meeting these expectations through flawless delivery of video inside a secure network environment, even with limited bandwidth. During his presentation, Alfie will also review the different distribution technologies, how to determine which one is best for your environment, and how to ensure each user is receiving the best possible video experience regardless of device or hardware configuration.

Supporting the use of live and on demand video in a global organization can be daunting, not only from an infrastructure perspective but also in terms of adoption.

Join Qumu Knowledge Manager Karen Van Wert as she shares a number of real-world, repeatable video adoption success stories from Qumu customers.

Team-to-Many: The New Global Video Conference

Event Completed—View On Demand Now
Vern Hanzlik, Qumu President and CEO

The ability for leadership to collaborate with global offices and remote workforces has changed dramatically, both in the technology being used and the methods used to communicate. Over the last 25 years the business world has made the slow transition from basic conference call technology to high capacity phone bridges, then to dedicated video conferencing rooms. And today, most organizations have stalled on the use of standard desktop-based video conferencing—a technology often plagued by latency, buffering, and even complete failure with as few as 25 participants.

But for global organizations, the convergence of video conferencing and video streaming has enabled a new type of “Team-to-Many” event, which exponentially expands the reach of live corporate video. This new hybrid video conference allows leaders who manage distributed teams, remote employees and global branches to host large-scale, two-way video communication between executive teams and thousands of employees—to any device and with no loss of meeting integrity. Join Qumu President and CEO Vern Hanzlik as he discusses Team-to-Many video conferencing, its impact on leadership communication, and how your organization can combine the power of video conferencing and enterprise streaming to host live interactive meetings for 500 to 30,000 attendees.
