Enable & Extend Your Communications Platforms with Streaming Video
VBrick Systems has initiated a new era in the integration of streaming video and unified communications. Streaming live and on-demand video to a large and geographically distributed audience has a unique set of challenges that require purpose-built infrastructure. Until now, accessing this content required a separate portal application. For the first time, the VBrick Lync Streaming Gateway, OCS Streaming Gateway and SharePoint Integration Module deliver the power of broadcast video into the context of every Microsoft Unified Communications application.
Live and on-demand streaming video have a distinct set of considerations and applications in the unified communications environment. Live video integration includes the process of initiating a live stream, enabling broad access to the video content, placing the video in a collaborative context, leveraging metadata in real-time, and archiving the content for subsequent playback on-demand.
Applications include TV distribution to the desktop via IP, executive and commander virtual town halls, public safety situational awareness, video-based training, surveillance, and emergency broadcasts. Additionally, live streaming video can be used to extend video conferences to thousands of viewers both inside and outside the corporate firewall. “Integration of on-demand content” with unified communications platforms must include the ability of users to upload and publish their own video. Users want to search for content and be alerted to relevant video automatically and then share this content with peers through their existing collaboration context, Office Communicator and Microsoft SharePoint.
