Every Online Video Platform (OVP) on the Market: A Reference List
If you're shopping for an online video platform (OVP), you might feel overwhelmed right from the start. How many are there? How do you figure out which one is best for you?
To help you, we present this complete list of every OVP currently on the market. It's a fast-changing area, so we'll update it a few times a year.
The list is courtesy of VidCompare, a site that helps buyers learn about and filter OVPs. Visiting it is an essential part of your OVP research.
An OVP, to crib VidCompare's definition, is software-as-a-service that provides end-to-end tools for managing, publishing, and measuring live and on-demand video. Typical components include video hosting, encoding, custom players, syndication, analytics, interactivity, and monetization. Because many fine business video offerings aren't quite OVPs, we're presenting a smaller list of additional video services at the end.
For an in-depth look at ten top OVPs, including Brightcove, Kaltura, and Sorenson 360, read A Buyers' Guide to Online Video Platforms from StreamingMedia.com.
