- By Sharleen Nelson
Kaltura will integrate its open source video management platform with Cisco's WebEx videoconferencing service.
Using the Kaltura platform, WebEx users will be able to manage and share the content of WebEx videoconferencing recordings. The WebEx interface provides applications that allow its users to discuss work and share files and applications with colleagues in real time via online meetings and Web and videoconferencing. The integration of Kaltura's video management and publishing tools is designed to streamline the workflow and allow WebEx customers to save, store, manage, publish, search, and distribute their WebEx recordings.
Key Features include:
- The ability to archive recordings;
- Manage and search content;
- Publish recordings to any browser or mobile device;
- Embed content on any site;
- Enhanced video sharing and collaboration;
- Ability to control access through publishing on restricted user-channels;
- Access to reports and analytics;
- Ability to download videos for offline viewing; and
- Platform Storage.
"With the convergence of live and VOD (video on demand) content, our customers expressed the need for unified flows from creation to consumption," said Ron Yekutiel, chairman and CEO at Kaltura, in a prepared statement. "Following our integration with WebEx, one of the most popular and widely-used video-conferencing and webcasting solutions out there, Webex recordings can now become part of organizations' central media repository, and they can seamlessly manage their WebEx recordings just as they do their other video content with Kaltura."
Kaltura's video platform provides video hosting, streaming, delivery, transcoding, analytics, and support and maintenance services to web publishers, media companies, educational institutions, and service providers. For more information, visit kaltura.com.
