Qumu Announces Qumu Video Platform for Embedding Video Everywhere
Business video platform provider Qumu announced a new product today, Qumu Video Platform, which combines Video Control Center 6.0 and VideoNet 2.0. The platform lets companies embed video in nearly any business application and manage their videos centrally.
Designed to adapt to varying needs, the Qumu Video Platform works with both live and on-demand video, and can serve video to mobile devices, including Apple iOS and Google Android phones and tablets. It also works with HTML5 browsers and integrates with SharePoint, WebSphere, Blackboard, and the TelePresence Content Server.
The platform also includes social features that allow for video sharing while still maintaining corporate security. Controls for enterprise security are automated. Employees also get simple tools for uploading media from their mobile devices.
"The Qumu Video Platform solves the mobile video challenge with support for the more than 30 format and resolution combinations for various mobile devices, enabling employees to watch videos on whatever device they choose," says Ray Hood, CEO of Qumu. "Qumu's developments in the area of adaptive streaming, content prepositioning, and the ability to automatically route streams based on device connection, are providing customers with real solutions to the associated network challenges with video."
By moving to the cloud, businesses can save money on a video communications system, Qumu says.
The QCS video capture and streaming appliance also gains support for Apple HTTP Live Streaming.
Serving video to mobile workers becomes easier with this release, which now supports Apple, Microsoft, and Google devices.
Companies are doing more with internal video than ever before, and the increase in mobile is only complicating that.
New tools for videoconferencing make it simpler to schedule and play back a recording session.
