Video conferencing has radically improved the way businesses communicate, putting faces to voices and creating a more personal connection during interpersonal discussions and small team meetings.
Only using video for real-time communications, however, is a waste of your investment.
To get the most value out of video, you need more than what video conferencing systems can do. You need the ability to record meetings, presentations, tutorials, demos, communications, and town halls. You need a secure place to store and manage your recordings. You need a search engine that helps you find any word spoken or shown in your videos. And you need to ensure that any employee can watch those videos on-demand, on any device. You need a video platform.
But that doesn’t mean you need to replace your video conferencing system. Because while conferencing solutions and video platforms each offer their own features and benefits, the technologies really begin to shine (and the use cases begin to multiply) when you leverage the two together.

Webcasting via a video platform can be an easy alternative to enable executives and senior managers to securely share live video messages in high definition to up to thousands of viewers around the globe.
But what’s the difference between web conferencing and webcasting? How can someone determine which technology to use? And when could the technologies be used together? Watch the video to find out.
Video is becoming ubiquitous across organizations worldwide, connecting individuals and groups for real-time meetings and conversations.
Yet video conferencing only scratches the surface of what video can do within the enterprise.
In our white paper, Video is More than Video Conferencing, we’ll look at the key differences between video conferencing tools and video platforms, and discuss five ways a video platform can help maximize your investment in video through:
