MediaPlatform to Showcase Updates to its Skype for Business Integration at Enterprise Connect 2018

ORLANDO, Fla., March 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ENTERPRISE CONNECT CONFERENCE -- MediaPlatform, Inc. (www.mediaplatform.com), the leading video platform enabling on-demand streaming and enterprise live streaming, is pleased to announce its presence at Enterprise Connect, the leading conference for business communication and collaboration products in North America.  

Enabling All-Hands Broadcasts to Audiences Over 10,000 Viewers
MediaPlatform will showcase updates to its integration with Microsoft’s Skype for Business, including enabling interactive all-hands broadcasts to audiences of over 10,000 live concurrent viewers and managing recordings in a secure and searchable online enterprise portal.

The compatibility between Skype for Business and MediaPlatform pairs the most widely deployed unified communications tool in the Fortune 500 with the enterprise streaming solution recognized by Gartner as a Leader in Enterprise Video Content Management.

“Our integration with Skype for Business enables organizations to combine the quality, scalability, and security of a MediaPlatform internal broadcast with the convenience of using the widely adopted Skype for Business application as your content source,” said Mike Newman, CEO, MediaPlatform.

Through MediaPlatform’s live streaming platform, WebCaster, kype for Business users easily access a robust set of enterprise-grade meeting features that include viewer registration, slides, pre-recorded content, Q&A, polling and auto-archiving. These features are available via cloud or on-premises install.

WebCaster guarantees live stream delivery while simultaneously providing valuable data about viewer engagement and behavior, through support for adaptive bitrate streaming (ABR) and robust viewer analytics.

Delivering Skype for Business Broadcasts to the Global Workforce
MediaPlatform offers Skype for Business users unparalleled online video broadcasting capability via a rules-based delivery engine that leverages all available options to ensure successful streaming. According to global consulting firm Frost & Sullivan, this technology, called SmartPath, “Gives MediaPlatform a distinct edge on its competition.”

Companies that have chosen Skype for Business as their UC system can now utilize the unmatched audience reach enabled with SmartPath by tailoring a set of media distribution and failover rules to dynamically assign a compatible stream to each video distribution technology. With MediaPlatform and Skype for Business, an organization can scale its unified communications initiatives across virtually any type of delivery scenario while also protecting internal networks.

WebCaster interoperability with Cisco, Polycom and Zoom provides users of these leading tools with a solution for overcoming the challenges of delivering large-scale video meetings to a globally dispersed workforce, and assist organizations in deriving greater ROI from their conferencing investments.

“As organizations aggressively grow their online communications initiatives, combining the sophistication of scalable delivery with intuitive and distributed content creation will continue to be critical,” said Newman.

MediaPlatform will be demoing its Skype for Business integration at Enterprise Connect, Booth #1236, from March 12-14 at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando, FL. Schedule a meeting with MediaPlatform at the show here.
