Benefits of SmartBridge
The Power of Enterprise Webcasting
SmartBridge is powered by MediaPlatform WebCaster – the award-winning enterprise video webcasting platform used by Global 2000 companies such as Abbott Laboratories, Ericsson, Facebook, General Motors and Phillips 66. SmartBridge gives your organization a tool to easily and securely reach audiences from 100s to 100,000+ live concurrent videoconference viewers.
Managing Video Conference Recordings
Derive greater ROI from your investment in a group video system by hosting all videoconference recordings in MediaPlatform PrimeTime – a secure and searchable enterprise video portal that serves as a central repository for web conference recordings, video files and archived webcasts. Add descriptions and tags, share links, embed in web pages or create session playlists.
Auto-Archiving of Sessions
With SmartBridge, videoconference sessions are automatically archived. Recordings live at the same URL as the original broadcast and can be accessed by employees who were unable to attend the live presentation, further enabling knowledge sharing and collaboration at your organization.
With SmartBridge you can reach any viewer on an iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows device with high-quality video, without the need for additional downloads or apps. Presenters can also participate in videoconferences via their smartphone or tablet.
Increase ROI on Group Video System Investment
Leverage videoconferencing units as a convenient video source for communications inside and outside the firewall. Leverage SmartBridge to take advantage of the features, functionality, and pre-existing deployment of a video conferencing system for webcasting purposes.
Increase audience engagement with large-scale presentations by adding Q&A, chat, polls and surveys. Viewers of videoconference recordings can rate, tag and share content with internal or external viewers.
Technical Highlights of SmartBridge
MediaPlatform SmartBridge can be used in conjunction with any group video system leveraging the SIP protocol.
