In large organizations, videoconferencing and streaming video are usually managed by separate groups for different applications. Now, VBrick is able to offer Cisco customers an automated, cloud-based solution, VBrick Rev, for video streaming and playback. VBrick Rev also offers flexible deployment options with on-prem and hybrid. As Rev integrates with Cisco TelePresence Content Server (TCS), customers will continue to be able to use their existing Cisco video endpoints to record and stream video into a “YouTube” like environment for corporate video, to then view live or recorded video from their web-connected devices.

“VBrick Rev is a great fit for our customers and partners,” said Thomas Wyatt, Vice President and General Manager of Cisco’s Collaboration Infrastructure Technology Group. “Rev’s cloud-first video architecture means that any user, anywhere, will now be able to easily and simply access live and on-demand video from any device, from their laptop to a wide range of mobile devices.

As part of the agreement, VBrick becomes a Cisco SolutionsPlus partner, a designation that adds VBrick Rev and the VBrick Distributed Media Engine to the list of products that Cisco and its authorized partners can resell worldwide. Existing Show and Share customers can migrate to VBrick Rev for little to no cost beginning next month.

“The alignment between UC powerhouse Cisco and enterprise streaming player VBrick is a true win/win scenario,” said Ira M. Weinstein, senior analyst and partner, Wainhouse Research. “Cisco sales reps and channel partners gain access to a high performance, scalable streaming platform. End-user customers can leverage their Cisco TelePresence investments as high quality video sources that can be streamed to anyone on any device. And VBrick gains access to Cisco’s sales team and vast network of resellers, customers and prospects. We expect this partnership to drive many enterprise rich media deployments.”

“VBrick and Cisco share a common passion for enterprise video and a focus on the efficient delivery of video across corporate networks,” said Shelly Heiden. “With its global reach, extensive partner network and trusted enterprise brand, Cisco is the ideal partner for VBrick. We look forward to serving Cisco customers and helping them unleash the full potential of video to drive productivity, speed innovation and monetize their products and services,” said Shelly Heiden, CEO of VBrick.

VBrick Rev is an enterprise video management platform that enables organizations to securely and efficiently deliver high quality live and on-demand video to thousands of viewers using the corporate wide area network and Internet. Rev provides centralized management over video ingest and storage, user access and permissions, video delivery devices, and video publishing and distribution, and does so within the stringent security and bandwidth limitations demanded by enterprise environments. VBrick’s platform uniquely includes a turnkey enterprise content delivery network (eCDN), comprising VBrick-designed Distributed Media Engines (DMEs). The VBrick video management platform works with the DMEs to enable intelligent zoning, matching end user information, including the user’s location and viewing permissions, with a network of DMEs that route and relay video content to the network’s edge.
