Media Entertainment Tech Outlook | Monday, January 17, 2022

As enterprise video streaming has progressed from a pleasant feature to a mission-critical requirement, the wide variety of benefits it provides has become more apparent.

Fremont, CA: Streaming video material is on the rise. Its rise in popularity in recent years may be attributed partly to the increasingly global nature of society and the convenience it provides for businesses faced with the issue of managing dispersed teams. COVID-19 has only exacerbated the boom in streaming content, and even as the pandemic subsides due to vaccines and therapies, demand is expected to continue to rise. Whether for live events or on-demand video, Enterprise video streaming brings the world closer together.

Must-have Features in a Video Streaming Solution

All-device video player

Everyone accesses the internet and views movies in their own unique way. Some people prefer mobile phones, while others prefer tablets, laptops, or even desktops. Different operating systems, browsers, and versions, as well as internet bandwidth, all play a role. As a result, content producers must ensure that the video player for any enterprise video streaming solution they evaluate is "all-device." With an all-device video player, their clients will always be able to view high-quality content in a manner that is compatible with their unique technology preferences.

API support

API is an abbreviation for Application Programming Interface. APIs allow visitors to a website to do actions without leaving the site. In the case of enterprise video streaming solutions, the ability to customize the video platform via APIs provides enterprises with far more control over the experience accessible to their consumers.

Great customer support

No matter how simple something is to install and operate, a company will occasionally want customer assistance, whether to address a problem or to take its implementation to the next level. It is critical to ensure that the workplace video streaming solution provides good, dependable, responsive, and personalized customer service. The manner in which the supplier services its consumers will have a significant impact on the manner in which the organization serves its customers.

Enterprise-grade security

The video platform requires strong access control that is also granular enough to distinguish between roles and content kinds. The most convenient will rely on an organization's SSO and current access rules, eliminating the need for a completely new set of rules and passwords. If they can integrate with existing intranet systems, it is an added advantage.
