    I actually like to use this as training for onboarding new talent. The webinars are incredibly useful. But sometimes face-to-face training and coaching are more suitable for the healthcare environment we operate in.

    Ensemble Video

    I'm not sure where Ensemble Video would be less appropriate. We've found it to be very effective for our campus-specific use cases. However, the product is very customizable in how a campus could structure their Ensemble instance to match their organization, and how users may be managed.

    Pros

    BrightTALK

    • It expands our audience by allowing us to tap into their database of users.
    • It is easy to use and is reliable. We don't have any technical issues.
    • It has robust reporting that provides a lot of data on attendees.
    Charles Rogel | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Ensemble Video

    • Adapting to user needs. Ensemble Video seems to always be listening to their clients needs and suggestions by implementing effective features in every system update. Communication seems to always indicate that these features are driven by requests that their customers have made to improve the service.
    • Client Support - I have an IT/support background and have had to deal with many vendors and external support. Ensemble is easily the most responsive and effective vendor when it comes to support. When needing certain solutions, they have sent code that was in development and not officially released so I could achieve my goals with project videos. Support is always personal, prompt and effective.
    • Customization. New templates, video players, account management, and embed options have allowed us to use Ensemble Video in a much more personalized way. Early versions of the service had an "Ensemble feel" but color schemes and logos are now able to be changed for a better organization feel.

    Cons

    BrightTALK

    • The user interface can be a bit tricky at times, as you have to dig down to find certain information. However, it is a robust interface and the information is there.
    • Some features, like adding questions or resources, have cut-off windows, so you cannot make last-minute additions or changes.
    • The bridge occasionally drops speakers, and this can be disconcerting to presenters. However, it does not happen too often.
    Sarah Cook | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Ensemble Video

    • User management. Some features are unique to the entire deployment (like authentication sources). It would be great if multiple authentication options could be used across different Ensemble institutions.
    • Upgrade processes. Though new versions of Ensemble Video are always better, the installation process is very manual and Ensemble Video must be involved directly. Not a weakness, but it would be nice to be able to perform our own upgrades/patches when needed.

    BrightTALK

    It is easy to use and very popular, yes, but a bit too mainstream for us in our industry. BrightTALK it's more sophisticated and it's content and feels more professional to us.

    Ensemble Video

    Ensemble Video has succeeded for us where other solutions have failed. It came along exactly when we needed it, for our organization. At the time, we were caught between the push and pull of several different solutions, uploading our videos with the expectation that users would take the time to download and play them, using popular public video streaming services with few settings and options, and forgoing videos altogether. Ensemble Video has taken our myriad needs and provided a platform that addresses all of them.

    Return on Investment

    BrightTALK

    • We have grown our audience by at least 50%
    Charles Rogel | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Ensemble Video

    • Ease of user contributed content. The videos that users upload to the system can either be automatically published or they can be reviewed by staff before being added to websites and courses. Instead of all these videos living on different sites (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) we now have a centralized location that we have control over.
    • LMS Integration - A year ago YouTube changed their policy to not allow direct recording from webcams. This essentially broke the Blackboard Video Everywhere tool that allowed our instructors to post quick comments in class discussions and content areas. While they need to be pre-recorded, the Ensemble Building Block allows our instructors and students to once again upload and post videos, all from directly within the Blackboard content editor.
    • Flexibility - With the ease of creating user accounts and video libraries, Ensemble Video has become the go to option for Erikson courses, professional development content and project videos. Different departments can have their own account and have control over their libraries without the worry of them viewing or editing other institute content.
