Gartner defines enterprise video content management as “software, appliances or software as a service (SaaS) intended to manage and facilitate the delivery of one-to-any on-demand video across Internet protocols.” This analysis focused on vendors that pursue internal, worker-facing installations as a key part of their business and offer solutions intended to address a broad segment of enterprise video use cases.

With fully integrated rich media webcasting capabilities that enable live streaming to any employee on any device, MediaPlatform provides organizations with a single solution for all of their enterprise video needs.
