In businesses and universities around the world, video is increasingly becoming the medium of choice for sharing knowledge and communicating online.
Within the enterprise, video is making new employee onboarding more efficient, it’s helping sales teams find and interact with prospects, it’s making executive communication more engaging, and it’s allowing corporate training programs to cut costs while scaling to employees in remote offices. According to research from Gartner, the use of video in the enterprise is only going to grow in the years ahead. By 2016, large companies will stream more than 16 hours of video per worker per month – that’s about 45 minutes of video per employee per day. And by 2018, 75% of workers at large organizations will interact with various kinds of video more than three times every day.
Within academic institutions, video is changing the way teachers teach and the way students learn. Lecture capture is becoming as ubiquitous as email on college campuses. Flipping the classroom is driving up student engagement and achievement. Student presentations are increasingly recorded and submitted to professors as video. And video content management systems are helping institutions like the University of Essex manage, stream, and search the 80,000+ hours of video captured across its campus last school year.
At Panopto, our mission is to democratize knowledge sharing with video. We believe that video has been too complicated for too long, and that it doesn’t have to be. So we build software that enables anyone in any organization to easily record and instantly share their ideas, best practices, and expertise. Since 2007, we’ve had the pleasure of helping universities make video a fundamental part of the student learning experience, and helping Fortune 500 companies dramatically improve the flow of institutional knowledge using video.
That’s why we’re so excited to have been named to the 2014 Streaming Media 100 – the Companies that Matter Most in Online Video. Compiled by contributing editors to Streaming Media Magazine, the list recognizes companies doing the most interesting and innovative work in streaming video.
”This year’s Streaming Media 100 is a diverse bunch, as diverse as the industry it represents,” said Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, editor of Streaming Media Magazine. “The one thing every company on the list has in common is that they’re committed to innovation and moving the industry forward. These are the companies that are here for the long haul, and our congratulations go out to all the members of this elite list.”
It’s an honor to be recognized by industry thought leaders like the Streaming Media Magazine judges, and to be included among leading providers and influencers in our industry.
